Vanity Hair: Blow Dry Bars Blow Through the Valley

Drybar Blow Dry Bar Scottsdale

Shake your heads, darlings! Skipping hair cuts and color altogether, these hip new hair spots focus on giving you one great blow-out at prices that don’t blow your budget. What more could a girl want?

Drybar, Scottsdale. Opening in Scottsdale Quarter on April 8, this trend-setting blow dry bar comes to the Valley straight out of Hollywood. Their concept is simple: “No cuts. No color. Just blowouts. Only $35.” Add to that super chic, contemporary digs and a menu that keeps your head from spinning – choose the Straight Up (signature blow-out), Manhattan (sleek and smooth), Southern Comfort (loads of volume), Cosmopolitan (loose curls), Mai Tai (messy beach hair) or Shirley Temple (pre-teen blow-out) – and you’ve got yourself one hot head. Up your experience with a “Floater” scalp massage during your shampoo for just $10.

Primp and Blow, Scottsdale. Tucked in north Scottsdale’s Hayden Peak Crossing center, Primp and Blow offers a boutique atmosphere and a friendly, neighborhood vibe. Started by a mom and daughter team, the salon offers classic blow-outs starting at $35 or skip the shampoo and go in dry for just a style for $25. Blow dry looks can range from super sleek and edgy to bouncy or full-volume – your choice. Primp and Blow also offers makeup, event lashes, hair tinsel applications and packages for extra savings.

Joya Salon, Paradise Valley. Why get ready for a night on the town alone when you can head to this posh salon and treat yourself to a shampoo, blow dry and glass of champagne for only $30? Available Friday and Saturday evenings from 5 to 8 p.m., the Joya Blow Dry Bar at the Montelucia Resort is the perfect complement to that little black dress. Makeup applications can also be added to your evening out pampering for only $10. Services are available on a first come-first served basis – no appointments needed.

Park Avenue Blow Dry and Beauty Bar, Phoenix. Located in the Arcadia neighborhood, you can choose from a blow dry, makeup application, custom spray tan or mini facial for $35 a shot. Choose from wavy, sleek, curls or beachy blow dry styles and neaten up with a $10 brow, lip or chin wax. The Park Avenue vibe is clean, feminine and with a touch of shabby chic.
