OWN A DRYBAR SHOP



    We may be biased, but we think Drybar is the ultimate business opportunity. And it’s not just about the profit – it’s about the people.

    Joining the Drybar brand means you’re becoming part of a family -a family that values the simple, yet profound act of caring. We’re bonded by the belief that beauty is more than skin (or hair) deep; it’s about the uplift that comes with it.

    This is your invitation to be part of something bigger. Every community deserves a welcoming spot women can’t wait to visit, and walk out feeling like a million bucks.

    We don’t just do hair–we do happiness.

    As a franchise owner, you have the power to lift the spirit of your community, one blowout at a time. Join us in spreading the signature Drybar fabulous-ness that comes from feeling good, looking great, and living boldly.

    WELCOME TO YOUR
    NEXT CHAPTER MAKING BANK WITH BLOWOUTS

    No cuts. No color. Just blowouts. (R)

    A simple idea that sparked a revolution. The Drybar brand is not
    just about the hair – we’re about family, hustle, and a whole lot of
    fun. Crafted from the ground up by Alli Webb, the Drybar legacy
    began in Brentwood, CA, in 2010. Today, it’s a booming style
    empire with nearly 200 shops worldwide and 100+ in
    development.

    "IT WAS THE GREAT BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY THAT FIRST ATTRACTED ME TO DRYBAR. BEFORE I KNEW IT ONE SHOP TURNED INTO MULTIPLE SUCCESSFUL LOCATIONS.

    WHAT I DID NOT EXPECT WAS TO GAIN SUCH AN AMAZING SECOND FAMILY IN MY FRANCHISE PARTNERSHIP IN MY 30 YEAR CAREER THIS HAS BEEN MY FAVORITE ENDEAVOR."

    We’re gonna get to know you. We’re not just talking about your professional background; we want the scoop on your personality, your character, what drives you.

    Expect a tête-à-tête that spans a good eight to 12 weeks. You’ll chat with fellow franchisees, weigh the financial and lifestyle perks, and really get down to the roots of the business.

    And if it all clicks? You’ll get the VIP pass to the Support Center in Denver for a day of leadership meet-and-greets, guided tour, and the chance to ask those final, pressing questions.
