After much anticipation, the country’s fourth-largest city is getting its first Drybar!

With locations now open in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, San Diego and Atlanta, this refreshingly simple “No cuts. No color. Just blowouts” concept has captivated more than 500,000 loyal clients nationwide. Now Drybar is blowing into Houston. Drybar opens September 13, 2013 in Uptown Park, marking the brand’s 30th location nationwide.

Founded by longtime stylist Alli Webb, Drybar has become a regular stop for celebs such as Cindy Crawford, Emma Roberts, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Zooey Deschanel, Rose McGowan, Hilary Duff, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Garner, Maria Shriver and Nicky Hilton.

“With so many requests on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for a location in Houston,” said Alli Webb, Drybar founder, “we’re thrilled to be bringing Drybar to this area.”

Drybar Houston will provide flawless blowouts at a flat price of $35, regardless of hair length or thickness (wash included!). Drybar’s style list reads like your favorite cocktail menu: the Cosmopolitan (lots of loose curls), the Straight Up (simple and straight), the Southern Comfort (big hair with volume), the Mai Tai (messy and beachy), the Manhattan (sleek and smooth) and for the little ladies, the Shirley Temple at $24.

At the core of that experience is Drybar’s top-of-the-line customer service and obsessive attention to every last detail. The Houston shop, located at 1141-3 Uptown Park Blvd., will feature Drybar’s signature look, including custom Italian chairs, tufted fabric walls, marble bar with built-in iPhone dockings stations, and flat screens quietly featuring your favorite chick flicks.

Drybar recently added some heavy hitters to its board with the addition of 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 an executive vice president at Neiman Marcus. “Drybar has created an incredibly cool and innovative experience for the consumer,” Gurwitch said. “I am excited to be part of this impressive team to further expand the Drybar brand.”

Appointments can be booked online at, through the Drybar iPhone app or by calling (713) 470.4640.
