Salons and spas around the country have one common goal: to help you look and feel your best. With a wedding on the way, we want you and your bridesmaids to feel confident and beautiful during all of the social events that come with getting married: bachelorette and engagement parties, bridal showers, and your wedding day! Here you’ll find our top picks for salons around the country, each offering a different service for your bridal beauty regimen: hair, makeup, and nails.

With 30 locations in California, Arizona, Georgia, New York, Texas, and Washington DC, as well as Boston and Chicago storefronts on the way, Drybar is providing millions of women with the gift of great hair. The company provides no cuts and no color – just blowouts for only $40. With a selection of styles to choose from for long, short, straight, curly, or wavy hair, the price stays the same and the final look magnificent. Get styled for an engagement party with “The Mai Tai” (a beachy hair look) or walk down the aisle with an “Up-Tini” style (an updo of course)! Also great for bridal showers, Drybar will plan a private party complete with drinks and blowouts for everyone on your invite list.
