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.

Milano Salon's stylists might prefer to be called artists—they view their craft as art, and back up that claim by performing nearly every type of hair service. They color locks with a spectrum of hair hues and glosses, draw out curls with permanent wave treatments, and sculpt hair into bridal or special-occasion updos. They carve new haircuts with scissors, razors, or the sharpness of their minds—the latter involves up to 17 hours of staring. The stylists use products like Pureology, Chi, and Solano. In the spa, aestheticians improve the health and appearance of complexions with a series of facials and waxing services, while nail technicians administer manicures, pedicures, and hand and foot treatments. Patrons unsure of which service they might want can request a complimentary 15-minute consultation for any of Milano’s treatments.
