Santa Monica has tons of spots to get a great blow out for your next event. With so many options, you can opt for a blow-dry, a full spa treatment, or anything in between. And, if you’re like us, nothing feels better than having someone else blow dry your hair. Here are some of the top choices for a blowout in Santa Monica.


Best Blowouts in Santa Monica


If you need a blowout in Santa Monica, why not go to the original blow dry bar? DryBar was the first to introduce the concept of a salon that specialized in just the blowdry. With online appointments and a great location on Montana Avenue, the salon is hip, trendy, and clean. Along with a professional blowout, you can go home with quality products to help you do better blowouts on your own in-between visits to the DryBar.

What more can you ask for? Remember, just like at any salon, the quality of your blowout at any DryBar depends greatly on your individual stylist.

What is a blowout bar?

A blowout bar is where you go when you want “just stepped out of a salon” hair even when you’re not due for a cut or color.

These stand alone bars are there for one thing, to tame that mane, Who doesn’t love walking out of a salon with professionally styled hair?
