Guest blog: DryBar brings its unique twist on blowouts to the District

( Meet  Vanessa Camozzi,the guest blogger behind DC on Heels. (

When I first heard the name Drybar, I thought  to myself, “Well this doesn’t sound like my kind of bar — I like my bars to be flowing with vodka, bourbon and beer.” That was of course until I discovered what Drybar really is. Holy hair we hit the jackpot! DryBar is a brand new “blow dry bar” concept created around a very simple idea: No cuts. No color. Just blowouts for only $35. And it’s coming to Washington, D.C.!

The District will officially become a frizz free city thanks to this uber chic hair salon. No cuts, no color, just pure blowout bliss at a bargain price. DryBar is slated to open not one, but two locations in mid-September: one in Georgetown on upper Wisconsin Avenue, and the other in Bethesda Row.

Founder, Alli Webb is the brains and beauty behind this operation. In 2008, she began a side business called Straight-at-Home, which provided in-home blowouts, strictly on a referral basis in L.A. Demand was high, and business was booming, so Webb decided to expand. Viva Drybar!

Already in multiple cities across the country including in California, New York, Arizona, Georgia and Texas — Webb is building a blowout empire. And the proof is in the pudding, this stylist has the credentials to back it up. A professional hair stylist, trained by Toni & Guy, Webb also spent several years working under the late, John Sahag in NYC. (Sahag has been referred to as “Michaelangelo with scissors.”)
