Besides just being one of the most iconic actresses of our lifetime, Gwyneth Paltrow is known for her (jaw-droppingly expensive) lifestyle website GOOP and perfectly coifed head of hair. When Gwyneth announced that she’d be teaming up with her friend and celebrity fitness trainer Tracy Anderson to open up a blow dry bar in California, we were a bit shocked. Sure, the pair supports each other in their respective areas of expertise, and the blow dry bar will be located within Anderson’s new training studio, but we’re just a bit confused about how much the actress really knows about a good blowout, regardless of whether or not her own tresses are always flawless.
Paltrow isn’t the first celebrity to lay claim on some blow dry bar real estate, following in Rachel Zoe’s footsteps who opened Dream Dry in New York. Besides celebrities, the blowout trend is making the rounds in the beauty world sans famous faces. From Dry Bar located in six states, Blow in New York and California and Blow Dry Bar proving that the hair really is bigger in Texas, the probability of running into a blow dry bar near you is only getting larger. Curious to know what each salon has to offer? Take a look through the best blow dry bars in the country to find one near you!
