Drybar Is a Knockout

Blowouts and styling in Georgetown and Bethesda


With temps dropping, that wet head will score you only a runny nose and a bucket of tissues. Come to blows with a new routine at Drybar.

Alli Webb opens the area’s first two salons dedicated exclusively to blowouts and styling on Friday.

Round one: Choose your style (stick straight, beachy waves, or beer can curls). Round two: Sink into a chair and let the stylist bob and weave as you charge your iPhone and watch a chick flick on the flat-screen.

Each bout lasts 40 minutes unless you add a Floater (a ten-minute head massage for an additional $10) or a shot of L’Oréal hair repair. Locks already dry? Sample the undercard: updos and Shirley Temple sessions for tweens.

There are other contenders, of course, but none that throw down like Drybar — yet.

The heat is on.

Drybar, 1825 Wisconsin Avenue Northwest, at 34th Street (202-609-8644); 4840 Bethesda Avenue, between Arlington Road and Woodmont Avenue (240-483-4277 or thedrybar.com), $40 and up.
