2014 Winner: Drybar

Drybar is a godsend for those of us who don’t have time to wrestle with hair dryers. The three-story Back Bay blowout bar (with a branch in Newton) specializes exclusively in washing and styling tresses. All blowouts are $40, no matter your follicular woes. Perks include traveling services for those who prefer at-home heat, a detailed lookbook to help the creatively challenged and ultra-convenient hours—it opens daily at 7 am and operates till 10 pm on prime going-out nights.
