Buzz: Unlike your typical hair salon, DryBar doesn’t do cuts or color. Instead, the chain focuses on blow dries and up-dos at a fraction of the price women pay at full service salons. A straight-forward wash and blow dry has a set price of $35, and as an added bonus, you can have a drink. The salon is always full of young professional women, according to Michael P. Glimcher, chairman and CEO of regional mall REIT Glimcher Realty Trust. Plus, DryBar hosts parties, ranging from sweet sixteens to bridal showers.
