Get Blown Away at Dry Bar Bleu!

While in New Orleans for
NOLAFW, I finally had the opportunity to stop by and check out Dry Bar Bleu,
the blow dry bar that’s recently made it’s mark on Old Metairie. Once inside, I
could definitely understand why (not to mention, they were open on a Sunday).
Owner, Emily Cheramie met me there to introduce me to the space, the Living Proof
products and the Dry Bar Bleu philosophy.

I was so impressed by all of
the attention to detail, the immaculate space and the dedication to customer
experience. (Look how fab all of the photos are!) I would tell you more in my
own words – but I think Emily did a much better job at answering all my
pressing questions below:

The response to the salon opening so far:

The response to dBb has been truly
overwhelming. In the two short weeks we’ve been opened, we have over doubled
our appointments. I’ve gone from praying just one client would show up to
actually having to turn them away because we have no availability. It’s been
the most challenging but fulfilling thing I’ve ever done, and I cannot wait to
see what’s in store.

What sets your blow dry bar apart from the

Dry Bar Bleu  is more than a salon, it’s a
destination. And we are selling more than just a blowout, we are selling that
boost of confidence a lady feels after a professional, stress-free

At dBb, our philosophy is simple: Focus on one
thing, and then, be the best at it. For us, that’s creating picture perfect
blowouts. That’s right: No color or cuts. Just fabulous blowouts for $35+.
Simply wash. blow. style. go.

I’ve always been a firm believer in the power
of little details. Everything from the provided purse hooks, cucumber infused
spa water that is served or how each station is equipped with its own iPad,
I’ve spent countless hours making sure no detail was overlooked, and I think
ladies appreciate that. Dry Bar Bleu is a place I want to go to as a client and
am proud to come to as a business owner.
