Drybar , the fast-growing chain of hair styling salons that specialize in blow-drys only, expects to serve customer number 1,111,111 sometime this week. Whoever that lucky customer is will receive free monthly blow-drys for life. And for everyone else, the company is offering a free blow-dry to anyone who purchases $100 worth of Drybar branded products or tools, either online or in a salon, through Sunday. The offer is good at all Drybars nationwide. Since opening its first salon in February 2010 in Los Angeles' Brentwood neighborhood, Drybar has expanded to 28 salons in California; Atlanta; Phoenix and Scottsdale, Ariz.; New York and Washington, D.C. And new shops are planned this year in Chicago, Boston and Houston, the company says.

Re "Military Rethinks Axing Also-Rans," June 13: It sounds like such a good idea; keep those who can contribute to the armed forces after they've been passed over for promotion. Yet a number of items have been overlooked in the article: Congress establishes the number and grade of personnel in each of the armed forces. So if you retain an officer who has been passed over for promotion, he still counts against the number of authorized officers of that grade. That means that an officer in the next lower grade who is qualified for promotion cannot be promoted because there will be no opening.
