Drybar is opening locations in Bethesda and Georgetown on October 19, and the famous hair styling shop is accepting reservations NOW. Appointments can be booked online at thedrybar.com, through the Drybar iPhone App, or by calling 202·609·8644 (Georgetown location) and 240·483·4277 (Bethesda location).
Founded by longtime stylist Alli Webb, Drybar has become a regular stop for celebs such as Cindy Crawford, Emma Roberts, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Zooey Deschanel, Rose McGowan, Hilary Duff, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Garner, Maria Shriver, Nicky Hilton and many more.
“With so many requests on Twitter and Facebook for a location in the nation’s capital,” said Alli Webb, Drybar founder, “we’re thrilled to be bringing Drybar to the DC area.”
Drybar Georgetown and Drybar Bethesda will provide flawless blowouts at a flat price of $40, regardless of hair length or thickness--with a wash included! Drybar’s style list reads like your favorite cocktail menu: the Cosmopolitan (lots of loose curls), the Straight Up (simple and straight), Southern Comfort (big hair with volume), Mai Tai (messy and beachy), Manhattan (sleek and smooth) and for the little ladies, the Shirley Temple at $28.
At the core of that experience is Drybar’s over-the-top customer service and obsessive attention to every last detail. The Georgetown shop, located at 1825 Wisconsin Ave, and the Bethesda shop, located at 4840 Bethesda Ave, will both feature Drybar’s signature look, including custom Italian chairs, tufted fabric walls, marble bar with built-in iPhone dockings stations, and flat screens quietly featuring your favorite chick flicks.
Drybar recently added some heavy hitters to its Board with the addition of Paul Pressler, former CEO of Gap, Inc. and a President at The Walt Disney Company, and Janet Gurwitch, Founder and former CEO of Laura Mercier Cosmetics and Executive Vice President at Neiman Marcus.
