Blow Outs & Styling in Waltham

Select Local Merchants

At Drybar, a pair of scissors or hair-coloring foil is nowhere to be found. That?s because the business?s founder, Alli Webb, opened the shop strictly for blowouts after her in-home business skyrocketed. Featured extensively in the media, each of the more than 25 white-hued, airy shops revolves around a center bar where customers sit for around 45 minutes as stylists blow-dry, straighten, and curl their hair. From a menu booklet, clients select a cocktail-themed hairstyle, such as The Mai Tai, which imparts beachy waves, and The Manhattan, which streamlines locks with a sleek finish that mimics the straight lines of downtown New York and can be outfitted with a tiny doorman who hails cabs for you. The staff at Drybar also crafts updos, travels on location for an additional fee, offers high-end products and tools available for purchase, and tallies bar tabs so that customers can pay for multiple blowouts at once.

According to stylist Jesica, the most important part of any haircut occurs before she even touches her scissors—the consultation. That's when clients can express the look they want Jesica or her J&L colleague, Liz, to achieve. And drawing on 10-plus years of experience, neither stylist disappoints. Using products by top brands, including Wella and DevaCurl, the duo meticulously sculpts hair into customized 'dos, from fashionable blowouts to chic up-dos. Aside from trimming and shaping hair, Jesica and Liz soften strands with conditioning and keratin treatments, as well as brighten locks with highlights or color glosses.

Q&A with Julie, Marketing Director

What's the number one grooming tip every person should know?
Partially dry your hair with a blow dryer, or air dry, before brushing. Brushing wet hair can damage your strands and cause split ends. Flat-paddle brushes are the best if you must brush your wet hair.

Part of being a good stylist is mastering the art of conversation. What are some pro tips for talking to strangers?
[We] bring up topics everyone can relate to. [We] ask about family, kids, work, what they do for fun or what plans they have for their days off.

Romanos 1 Salon takes style cues from the elegance of Italy. Elements of Roman architecture are present in the decor, and even the haircare products are Italian?the staff has the complete Echos Line collection at their disposal. They use the brand's nourishing properties to help with haircuts, deep conditioning, and color treatments, as well as texturizing services that leave hair with straight or imbued with springy curls depending on patrons' preferences.

In addition to their hair services, the team also pampers nails with mani-pedis, flatter faces with makeup, and clear away unwanted hair with wax. Each appointment begins with a beauty consultation that nails down the client's preferred look, ensuring that they communicate closely with the stylist instead of bashfully passing notes to them over their shoulder.
