Shop Manager

Drybar - Los Angeles, CA


We are Drybar, a blow-dry bar, and we set out to shake up the beauty industry in our own, anti-salon kind of way. We believe in doing one thing and being the best at it. For us, that’s blowouts. In fact, our tagline says it best: No cuts. No color. Just blowouts. What started with one shop in Brentwood, CA has grown to 100 + locations across 12 markets (and counting!). Life with us is fast-paced, dynamic, and fun.

We are actively seeking an ultra-amazing Shop Manager to lead, guide, and inspire our employees and delight our clients with the ease and grace of the ultimate host(ess). The ideal shop manager would be someone who cultivates relationships like a (wo)man on a mission, knocks out daily punch lists with swift uppercuts, and keeps track of their business, their people, and their mission like their life depends on it. This role is perfect for someone who is ambitious, dreams of growth, thrives off of juggling tasks and problem-solving, and does it all with a smile on their face and a twinkle in their eye. Our Shop Managers are the heartbeat of our shop. Without their hard work and tireless spirit, we would be unable to deliver great hair to the masses. We don't know about you, but we just can't let our clients down.

No cosmetology license needed. We’re looking for people who are just as passionate about providing an incredible guest experience as we are and who want to bring their own sparkle to the Drybar Magic!
