I rarely like it when someone else styles my hair and I thought it was okay. My sister goes there all the time though and absolutely love it!

I’ve gone there a few times for nights out.  I’ve been happy with it.

I think it greatly depends on your stylist, but I LOVE getting a blowout. If I won the lottery I would never wash my own hair again LOL

I’ve been a few times. Last time was this past weekend before my maternity pictures. I think they do a pretty good job but my complaint is my hair always looks the same no matter what I ask them to do! This time I asked for loose beachy waves but I still got full on curls. It looked exactly the same as it did a few months ago when I went and asked for volume and curls. I went as a bridesmaid for my friends wedding and it’s definitely economical but as a bride I would not want that uncertainty. Plus it really depends on who you get.

I like Dry Bar. Of course it really depends on the stylist but I found my results to be consistently good except for one time, so that’s pretty good. I always used to do a very simple look though so I never tried any of the fancier style options.

Both times I’ve done it I ended up completely redoing my hair (as in dunking it in water and re-drying it myself) as soon as I had a chance lol. I dunno if that says more about the stylists I had or my own pickiness…or both haha.

I’ve been to Drybar plenty of times for special events- I really love them! My suggestion would be that if you go for a curly style and your hair is on the thin side and hates to hold a curl like mine, have them do the curls tighter so that they’ll still look nice when they loosen up later. Usually they’ll ask if you’re getting a blowout for an event and what time it is so they can adjust accordingly, but just double check when you’re there.

Thank you for this thread! I’m planning on going before my engagement photos, so this feedback is helpful to me, as well.

I love DryBar, but ai have gotten really good at telling them exactly what I want and how to do it so I get a consistently good blowout.

I like Drybar! I’ve had probably 15 blowouts there in the last 2 years. It can be hit or miss – probably 4 of the 12 were terrible or didn’t last beyond walking out of the salon. My advice is to go in with dirty hair (try to hold off washing 2 days before) because then it is less likely to come out flat, even after they wash it. I also usually tell them to use as much product as they need to “dirty up” my hair so the style holds.

I have a membership, but have seen the quality go down in recent years. My last blowout had a little bit of curl and it fell out really quickly. They say your hair should last about 3 days if you take care of it properly, but lately I’m lucky if I can wear it a second day without restyling. For a one-time, big event I think it would be worth it. They would take extra care and it will turn out well. Day to day trying to get by without doing my own hair, however, not worth it.
