ATLANTA, Ga. (Nov. 1, 2022) – A Los Angeles actress has signed a deal to bring seven Drybar locations to the greater Atlanta area, WellBiz Brands has announced.

The Drybar® brand is part of the WellBiz Brands Inc. portfolio, the pre-eminent beauty and wellness franchise manager, with other brands that include Amazing Lash Studio®Radiant Waxing™, Elements Massage® and Fitness Together®. WellBiz Brands portfolio franchises have nearly 900 franchise locations globally. Drybar is a hair salon experience that provides exclusively blowouts, which includes a wash, blow dry and hair styling.

Candice Mann is returning to her Southern roots and relocating her family to the Atlanta area, where she will develop seven locations within the busy metro market.

“So often, women take care of the world – families, careers, communities and beyond,” Mann said. “Drybar shops take care in offering a convenient, quality and enjoyable service that makes our lives just a little bit easier, while also making us feel great. It’s a gift to busy women everywhere.”

Mann has spent most of her career in Los Angeles. She has appeared in “Castle,” “The Closer” and most recently in the TV mini-series “Pam & Tommy.” She also has done voiceover work for Mellow Yellow, Coors Light, Discover Card, Dunkin’ and Reliant Energy.

As an active mom of a son and daughter, acting gave her a unique perspective on the beauty and wellness industry.

“As my children get older, I wanted to get out of Los Angeles and be closer to my family,” she said. “I already knew and believed in the brand. It was the next best step for me in my career.”

Mann first learned of the Drybar brand after her cousin gave her a gift certificate for her birthday. From there, she was hooked, Mann said. “I know many friends who give each other Drybar gift certificates every holiday because it’s just so nice to have someone take care of us for a bit, and everyone needs that.”

When deciding whether to purchase a franchise, Mann did her due diligence. She researched several other brands and even a boutique hotel, but her love for the Drybar brand ultimately won out over the competition.

“It’s a strong, recognizable brand with a great reputation and high level of service,” she said. “From the ease of booking and checkout to skilled stylists and convenient locations, to award-winning products, the experience is exceptional. Clean, bright and beautiful spaces, along with complimentary beverages, are inviting, while the feeling of walking out with gorgeous hair that you don’t have to wash or style for a few days is irresistible.”

Mann is currently scouting locations and expects to have the first location opened by summer 2023.

Behind The Bar - The Drybar Product Advantage

We’ll just come out and say it—Drybar® shop’s signature products are special.

It all started when founder Alli Webb was playing mixologist, looking for that perfect recipe for the iconic Drybar blowout. This alchemy of sorts was just the beginning, and led to the creation of the first Drybar star product, the award-winning Detox Dry Shampoo. 

Then came the tools, and the “Buttercup®” blow dryer was born. The iconic sunshine-bright blow dryer that’s become a beacon of beauty innovation. The Buttercup blow dryer makes a statement, and is an instantly recognizable piece of the Drybar universe you can hold in your hand.

But what's style without substance?

Drybar hair care products look great, sure, but they also work great and smell amazing. Their signature scents have people saying, “You smell like a Drybar shop”, and that’s a very good thing.

As a Drybar shop franchise owner, you’ll leverage this cohesive brand experience, amplified by the fact that Drybar brand products are for sale at prestigious retailers like Sephora®, Ulta®, and Nordstrom® worldwide. 

So when women step out of a Drybar chair they become walking, talking evangelists for the brand. Thousands of clients regularly purchase and use Drybar products, which means they’re spreading the word about great hair wherever they go.

Owning a Drybar shop franchise means stepping into a world where every product tells a story, every blowout is a signature experience, and every client becomes a testament to the transformative power of amazing hair.
