As with every Drybar location, over-the-top customer service and attention to detail will be at the core of your experience—perfect for brides, bachelorettes, and Southern socialites.

Signature in-shop services will include the Classic Blowout, Uptini (an updo), Mudslide Treatment, Bay Breeze Hydrating Shot, Shirley Temple (special service available for ages 10 and under), Barfly Memberships, Dry Pro styling, weddings, group specials, and parties.
