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.
