Drybar’s branding proudly features its official mascot, Buttercup (the upside down yellow blow dryer), found all over its shops and website! The prototype design of Drybar was created by award-winning architect Josh Heitler of New York-based firm Lacina Heitler. ( Josh is also a partner in Drybar.) Each shop is carefully crafted to look and feel like a comfy, chic “bar” instead of a typical salon. Signature elements include fabric paneled and tufted walls, marble countertops, Italian styling chairs, flat screen TVs playing“chick flicks,” iPhone charging docks at each station and custom music playlists.
For Brides and their girls…
Drybar has a VIP room in most locations that people can rent out for private parties. In this case, a bride can rent the room out for just her and her bridesmaids for wedding day preparations. Of course complimentary drinks and chick flicks are offered. Drybar also does what’s called an UpTini which is a fancy bar themed name for an Up Do. Drybar is like your one stop shop for all things bridal hair!
