Blow Dry Bar Franchise Opportunities
Why Become a Primp and Blow, Blow Dry Bar Franchisee?
You’ll like our style of business.
Primp and Blow provides a signature blow dry bar franchise experience that is unique from other hair salon and blow dry businesses. We provide all that you need to create a comfortable, boutique style setting that will bring you success in your blow dry, hair extension, makeup, and wedding services business.
We are committed to delivering exceptional customer service and are looking to expand across the country with franchisees who have a passion for providing an outstanding experience to their customers. If you are interested in investing in a franchise, we think you’ll find us to be the best choice.
Since inception in 2010, Primp and Blow’s business model has been a proven success, and our franchisees have benefited from this model as well. The model includes a series of steps developed to ensure all guests receive the same signature experience that is unique to Primp and Blow.
We invite you to take a closer look at this special franchise opportunity, as not all Blow Dry Bars are created equal!
Our Mantra Concept:
Confidence To Go
The Primp and Blow concept is to offer fast, affordable shampoo blowouts by welcoming walk-ins, online booking, and mobile appointments with our branded app, which makes getting in and out easy.
By offering additional services, such as makeup, lashes, and clip-in hair extensions, we help customers get the complete look they want.
Women will tell you that their hair can make or break their mood. Having a one-stop shop to gain confidence and brighten their mood is something that women desire. Until recently, however, salon-worthy hair was limited to those only with an appointment or deep pockets. Primp and Blow has changed that forever!
Primp and Blow provides a look for any occasion:
- Awards nights
- Special events
- Just because!
The Primp and Blow Brand
Getting a regular luxurious shampoo blowout and makeup application is quickly becoming a way of life for ladies everywhere.
Since opening our first location in 2010, Primp and Blow’s unique business model has redefined the meaning and methods behind a successful blow dry bar. Primp and Blow is based on a unique series of steps that all employees follow during a customer’s visit. Implementing this series of steps ensures that all guests receive “The Primp and Blow Experience” that transfers from one location to another.
What Does Primp and Blow Offer to Its Franchisees?
We’ll make sure you’re sitting pretty.
We offer beautiful, unique, comfortable stores, and “look your best” services for visits in-between hair salon appointments. Blow Dry Bars with additional beauty services are a new, popular, needed business!
We provide our franchisees with the best products and equipment, including national brands, such as Freestyle Systems® and Shu Uemura® Art of Hair products. Our hair extension bar offers luxurious permanent, non-permanent, and clip-in options. We offer only the best hair extension product lines to our customers, including Halo and DreamCatchers.
Our makeup bars are an important part of our service, and important to the store’s profits at the same time. You can use this important add-on to provide a complete beauty experience. We work with some of the top brands, such as Smashbox Cosmetics and Mink Wink Lashes, to achieve a variety of different makeup looks for our customers.
We have negotiated buying programs to help you save money; we’re not trying to build a distribution company.
Our sleek and boutique-style designed layout, décor, and theme is created to help customers have an enjoyable experience every time they visit. This theme is translated identically to each franchisee location.
