COLLEEN BELLITTI

“I created Dry Divas because I wanted a great quality, stylish product for myself and my family. I hope you enjoy your Dry Divas shower caps as much as we do.”

My motto in life is to “have fun”. While I know that life isn’t always a party, I try to bring sunshine and happiness to the people I love and everything I do.

I started my life as Colleen O’Neill. Irish through and through, green quickly became my favorite color. After graduating from the University of Arizona, I met my best friend and soul mate (truly, I got very lucky in this department) and started my life as Colleen Bellitti. After working for years at an investment banking firm, we had our second child and I quickly realized that I needed more flexibility than my office job could provide. I then worked as a personal assistant where I shopped and threw parties for a living. It was an exciting, fulfilling role, but I still found myself wondering, as I was reading my Blackberry in between putting my kids to sleep, what could I create on my own from home?

My daughter Isabel has curly hair, and like most eight-year-olds, has a very busy schedule. After a long day of school and after-school activities, I didn’t want her to shower and go to bed with wet hair. Plus, she didn’t need to wash her hair every day. So the search for a shower cap was on. I searched everywhere but couldn’t find an attractive quality shower cap for her anywhere. The ones I found were just a step up from a disposable cap and left her hair wet and flat. The light bulb went on, and the rest is history. I am so happy to be able to provide a shower cap that adds a splash of sunshine and style to your everyday beauty routine to bring out the diva in you.

    HI Colleen,
    I received my cap from a dear friend and it is my favorite. I grew up with a mom who lived by her appointments. Or shall I say, my brothers and I lived by her hair appointments. I live in Calabasas and my daughter and I have joined National Charity League which is an organization that supports 8 plus philanthropies and we are hosting our holiday boutique on Wednesday, December 13th from 8am-12pm at the Woodland Hills Country Club. We would love to have you participate in our boutique. My co-chair may have already reached out to you but please let us know if you would like to be a part of our morning. Our chapter is over 200 women in the Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Hidden Hills and Encino areas. I look forward to hearing from you. I can be reach at 818-472-6665

    Hey, Colleen, I met you in the Atlanta airport at Longhorns with Jimmy my boss (guy with the long beard and bald head)… we all wrapped up the Atlanta Market show. I had a quick drink with you guys. Anyway, it was a pleasure to meet you. You mentioned sending a shower cap – I’m all over the map at the moment, so if the offer still stands then I can give you an adresss. Anyway, hope all is well – will be heading to NYC in a few weeks for NOW while you are in Mexico 😜 Take care…
