Alli Webb, founder of Drybar, poses while styling hair in the salon.

There's no cut. There's no color. Drybar focuses on one thing only: blowouts. Stylists wash hair then use a blowdryer and skill to create a finished style. The specialty parlor, found across the country but largely successful in New York and California, is now on Philadelphia's Market Street. 

Drybar will provide professional blowouts at a fixed-rate price starting June 3. A standard blowout at the salon costs $45.

Guests choose a style from the Drybar menu, then sit back with champagne, infused water, tea or coffee as the stylists get to work.

The signature blowout styles read like a traditional cocktail menu:

•Cosmo (lots of loose curls)
•Straight Up (straight with a little body)
•Southern Comfort (big hair with lots of volume)
•Mai Tai (messy and beachy)
•Manhattan (sleek and smooth)
•Dirty Martini (tousled and textured)
•Shirley Temple (a discounted blowout for kids)

Salon hours aren't yet finalized, but currently, Drybar is scheduled to open at 7 a.m. during the week, 8 a.m. on Saturdays and 9 a.m. on Sundays. Closing time will be between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.

Before Drybar's debut, BLO/OUT Blow Dry Bar was Philly's only salon with a blow dry bar concept.
