Salon Spotlight: Drybar Las Vegas
The highly anticipated opening of Las Vegas’s Drybar salon has had wild success in just over a month after their opening in July. Their simple concept of “No cuts, no colors, just blowouts” is the perfect addition to any girl’s night out prep.
With their smart location inside Planet Hollywood’s Miracle Mile shops (near The Strip entrance) every girl (or guy!) can have a drink, get styled and begin their night… Britney, anyone?
Peace, Love, Blowouts: Drybar’s Takeover
Stylist master and blowout zealot, Alli Webb is co-founder and guru behind Drybar. With her passion for over the top service and styling expertise, the blowout bar concept caught on fast. The Las Vegas shop is Drybar’s 63rd location. The brand is currently on track to have over 70 locations by the end of 2016, including openings in NYC, Los Angeles and Miami.
“We are beyond thrilled to finally be open in Las Vegas,” said Alli Webb, founder of Drybar. “Our clients have been anxiously awaiting a location on the strip for years and we’re so excited to finally make it a reality.”
The Drybar experience is luxury. Upon being greeted, guests receive one complimentary drink of champagne or a white wine variety. Guests can ponder Drybar’s menu of their signature cocktails, or blowouts, which are all named after classic spirits.
All blowouts come at a flat price, regardless of hair length or thickness, with wash included! Their cocktail list is as follows: the Cosmo (lots of loose curls), the Straight Up (sleek with a little body), the Southern Comfort (big hair, pageantry volume), the Mai Tai (beachy, think Victoria Secret Angel), the Manhattan (straight and smooth), the Dirty Martini (tousled and textured), the Uptini (bridal or prom updo) and little ladies can join the fun with a Shirley Temple.
Booze & Blowouts: Drybar Vegas
Drybar took (pun intended) a gamble with launching their largest salon to date, at 2,797 square feet, complete with 20 styling chairs and their signature elements that defines the Drybar experience. However, exclusively to Vegas’s shop you will find a full cocktail bar, built-in photo booth and live DJ. Having a bachelorette party or birthday? Call their in-house event manager to plan your soiree at Drybar. Bottle service packages and complete buyouts are at your disposal. The Drybar in Sin City aspires to be the ultimate “pre-party” destination for ladies visiting Vegas!
Next time you plan a visit, stop over at the Drybar. It’s beyond luxurious to have a styling session before a night out. With copious amount of live performances, shows and nightclubs in Vegas, you will always have a reason to step out looking gorgeous.

Downtown Las Vegas: Hi Rollers Barbershop
With how short my hair is, I usually get it trimmed a few times a month. I have a faded side shave with an inverted pixie on the other side. Once my boyfriend and I got settled into our new place, we investigated the local salon scene in Las Vegas. We both needed to get cleaned up a bit after being on the road.
Back in Seattle, we both went to Bishops Barbershop, so we looked for a comparable salon that served some cheap beer, had great music and offered quality styling products.
Nestled east of the Vegas arts district, is Hi Rollers Barbershop. No shops surround Hi Rollers, except for a gas station (side note, get cash out there!). Hi Rollers only takes cash.

Another side note: we walked in figuring it would be a walk-in style place… but only on certain days. Tuesday through Thursday, Hi Rollers is by appointment only. Not to worry, walk-ins are taken Friday through Sunday.

We loved the vibe of this place! The inside is full of American traditional tattoo art, classic Pabst Blue Ribbon framed photos, skateboard art and brightly colored bowling pins. Kind of a pawn shop meets tattoo parlor from The Big Lebowski.
All the guys cutting hair know their stuff, style wise. The style base is a majority of classic men’s cuts and traditional grooming services.

However, it is definitely not limited to men! I saw Bacca (pronounced BAH-KAH, Chewbacca anyone?!) and he knew immediately I had a pixie cut, asked how I liked my fade and cleaned it up properly with a straight razor at the end. So, if your a gal venturing in, ask for Bacca.
Hi Rollers Barbershop is definitely our Vegas go-to. Everyone is friendly, they offer great products from Suavecito & Suavacita Pomeade, street apparel, and some of the best beard and mustache grooming products.
Check them out next time you happen to need a trim and find yourself in downtown Las Vegas. And buy some Suavecito and put it in your boyfriend's hair, because it smells sexy!Hailey Way is a blogger, digital strategist, model, and dancer.
