In an age where women receive a blow out as often as a manicure it’s important to have a local blow dry salon you can trust and build a relationship with. Cherry Blow Dry Bar
is located right in Clarendon & the vibe when you walk in is, in my opinion, New York chic. From the super cute chandeliers to the warehouse type flooring, the experience is perfect for the fun professional women in our area.
I had been driving past Cherry Blow Dry Bar for a while and I decided it be would be perfect place to have my, and my bestie, Heather’s, hair done for the Washington Humane Society’s Fashion for Paws event. I love love love the Washington Humane Society, and I’ve been to their annual Fashion for Paws event many times, so, of course, I needed a great place to have my hair done before. I was excited to try Cherry Blow Dry Bar for the first time, and they certainly did not disappoint!
As soon as you enter you’re warmly welcomed and promptly asked if you’d like a glass of champagne. How could you not love that?! Also, they were playing the best music, a little bit of everything which I love.
Lindsey, my stylist, has been doing hair for about 7 years, but has only been working at Cherry since the beginning of this year. She was kind enough to answer some of my questions about Cherry Blow Dry Bar!
We all know there are other blow dry bars popping up, especially in the DMV area, when I asked Lindsey what set Cherry apart from their competitors she mentioned how valuable the customer service experience is, which I totally agree with. She also focused on the consistency between all of the Cherry locations and explained how the stylists training for Cherry is unique. There’s also another Cherry in the area, in Mosaic District, so it’s nice to know that everything across all of the Cherry Blow Dry Bars are done in the exact same way.
Also, Cherry Blow Dry Bar membership options are available for frequent customers, and they are super
affordable. A month-to-month membership is $60 and that includes 2 monthly blowouts, 10% off products, and discounts on other salon services. The Frequent-Dryer unlimited monthly memberships runs $149, which, aren’t really that bad of a price if you have a lot of D.C. events to attend!
I loved my hair for the event, the curls were great, and the style lasted all night, and well into the next day! I also have to comment on the fact that Lindsey was able to wash, dry, and style my hair in such a reasonable time frame- I have thick & long hair, and my other blow dry experiences have taken quite a long time. My experience at Cherry was just enough where I was able to relax and enjoy myself, but not too long where I felt a time constraint with getting ready for the event.
Next time you’re looking for a high quality and affordable blow out, pay a visit to Cherry Blow Dry Bar, rest assured you will be treated well & love your blow out!
