Drybar Opens in Harvard Square
Ready to fight the humidity? Drybar Salon opens its third Boston-area location today, just in time to save your hair from the summer weather. For those who haven’t converted to the ways of Drybar, the salon chain provides numerous versions of a single specialized service—top of the line blowouts. The new location, which is in Harvard Square, will offer their trademark options: more than seven different style options, multiple different hair treatments, a complimentary wash, and a flat price no matter the length or thickness of your hair.
Founder Alli Webb opened the first Drybar in Los Angeles, California when she wanted to offer her own take on the blowout salon. Since opening Drybar in 2008, Webb has received numerous accolades for her excellence and innovation in hairstyling and business–including a spot on Cosmopolitan’s 2013 “Power List” and Fast Company’s 2014 “100 Most Creative People In Business.” After the success of her Back Bay and Chestnut Hill salons, she decided to bring the perfect blowout to Cambridge.
Covered in their trademark lily white and buttercup yellow hues, the new 2,060-square-foot location maintains Drybar’s signature aesthetic and sleek modern design. The space consists of 10 custom styling chairs, chic tufted fabric walls, an elegant marble bar, and a one-of-a-kind chandelier constructed from a collection of “buttercups”–their trademark yellow hairdryers. In addition to its bright design, the Harvard Square Drybar also has convenient charging docks for your phone at every styling station. Throughout the day, their flat screens will feature your favorite chick flicks, so all that’s missing for you and your pals to enjoy a girls’ afternoon out is the popcorn.
Visit Drybar in Harvard Square at 1081 Mass. Ave., Cambridge. Special longer hours are available Thursdays and Fridays from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
