Whether it's a night out before your bachelorette with the squad or a laid-back morning with mom before the bridal shower, these D.C. area businesses will leave brides "blown" away with their impeccable service (pun intended). For brides who prefer romantic comedies on in the background or bright fuchsia everywhere, these blow dry bars in the nation's capital are the perfect pick.

The Drybar is taking the D.C. area by storm. The business with the popular "no cuts, no color, just blowouts" slogan that has influenced the blowout business world is the ideal place to bring a crew of bridesmaids pre-bachelorette party. Think bright sunny yellow everywhere, romantic comedies playing, and bubbly for all. Drybar offers a few distinct styles on their menu, including their classic straight up, loose curls Cosmo, big haired Southern Comfort, beachy Mai Tai, and straight and sleek Manhattan. With locations in Bethesda, Georgetown, Dupont Circle, Penn Quarter and Tyson's Corner, VA, there is a Drybar in all corners of D.C. Read real brides' reviews here!

Blowout Bar
Get an ultimate blowout at this West End salon — which includes a shampoo, scalp massage, and style. Brides can choose from any of the bar's five blowout looks, whose namesakes are easy-to-remember girls' names. Blowout Bar is painted in lavender — making for relaxed, anxiety-free time for over-scheduled brides. For bridal parties who want at-home services so they can look their very best for a night on the town, bridal shower, or the wedding itself, a house call blowout costs $75 and updos are $140.

Dupont Circle's Blo has an international following, with locations across the U.S. and the Philippines. Unapologetically girly, Blo is decorated in its signature bright fuchsia. Its variety of blowdry styles will suit any bride, from Bohemian fishtail braids to red carpet ready tresses. Blo's signature blowout is $40 so brides are ready for everything from their showers to their bachelorette. Blo has an extensive "Blo Bridal" offer, with in-bar rates running around $65 for a consultation and $95 for day-of hair (varies by state). Maids, mother-of-the-bride and flower girls are $40 and for brides who opt for hair to be done elsewhere, Blo charges $150 for the bride and $100 for each additional bridal party member.
