Who doesn’t love Zooey Deschanel’s signature hair? Or, Jennifer Garner’s always-luscious, flowing locks? And women in Scottsdale have been following their lead, trusting one blowout salon in particular with their hair — Drybar. Due to the shop’s success at the Scottsdale Quarter, Drybar is opening a second location in Phoenix on the Camelback Corridor.
“We are thrilled to be opening our second Drybar in Arizona,” says Alli Webb, Drybar founder and longtime stylist. “Our existing Scottsdale shop in the Scottsdale Quarter has been warmly embraced by the lovely ladies in Arizona, and we are ecstatic to open Drybar in Phoenix.”
With the opening of the Phoenix location scheduled for the end of October, the blow dry bar is also looking to hire 50 to 60 people. Positions include stylists and front desk personnel.
Drybar has locations open in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, San Diego and Atlanta, and the concept — offering no cuts, no color, just blowouts — has a following of more than 200,000 loyal clients nationwide.
And it isn’t the shop’s customer service that’s over-the-top (in a positive way, of course); its design is, too with custom Italian chairs, tufted fabric walls, marble bar with built-in iPhone docking stations, and flat screens featuring your favorite chick flicks.
Drybar has also recently added some high-profile names to its Board, including 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.
“Drybar has created an incredibly cool and innovative experience for the consumer,” says Gurwitch. “I am excited to be joining this impressive team to further expand the Drybar brand.”
