“No cuts. No color. Just blowouts,” is the tagline of the insanely popular Drybar, the salon that’s credited with bringing the blowout craze to the masses. There are two Drybars in San Francisco—one in Pacific Heights another downtown. Both of the salons sport Drybar’s signature buttercup yellow, white and grey color palette and are constantly booked, so be sure to reserve a spot in advance. Romantic comedies and classic chick flicks play from muted, subtitled television screens, and when you check in, the receptionist offers you a cookie and a drink—water, coffee or sparkling wine, depending on the location. The hairstyles are cheekily named after cocktails: the Manhattan is a sleek and smooth do, while the Dirty Martini is tousled and textured hair. Drybar uses its own scented line of styling products (dry shampoo, weightless conditioner, shimmering leave-in spray) and tools (shower cap, hair clips and curling irons, all in Drybar’s official sunny yellow color) which are available for purchase at each location. What makes Drybar so great is its quality control and reliability. Whether you’re at the salon in Pacific Heights or one of their locations in Washington D.C., you can rest assured that you’ll get the same friendly service and sleek, stylish locks.
