Although you may not live in the metropolitan areas that are always the first to see the beauty and fashion trends, you can still admire them from afar, anxiously awaiting their touchdown in your town.
One beauty retailer trend that is making waves in big cities is the blowout bar. Based on the belief that all women deserve a good blowout, these express salons are gaining popularity among those who value the sleek look of a professional blowout. Blowout bars are stationed to present women with a little taste of luxury, offering parties and prosecco all in the name of good hair. Cutting out the cuts and color, these salons are taking a specialized approach. Glamorous, girly décor and the lure of a social gathering make these bars hot spots, happy hour or not.
Perhaps one of the more notable examples of these beauty bars is Drybar. Started by Alli Webb, Drybar serves to offer customers the best blowout in an entertaining atmosphere. Continuing with the bar trend, Drybar provides a “menu” of options and sells gift cards in the form of coasters. The styles share their names with popular drinks including the Cosmopolitan, Mai Tai and Southern Comfort. Buttercup, a bright yellow blow dryer, serves as the mascot of the brand and decorates Drybars in the form of chandeliers. Drybar currently has locations in California, New York, Arizona, Texas and Georgia. As the blowout bar trend continues, Drybar plans to open additional locations in the future. Hopefully one by you!
Other popular blowout bars include New York’s Blow, Seattle’s Swink Style Bar and North America’s Original Blow Dry Bar, Blo.
