Drybar Closed for Not Having Permits


Drybar should have the skills to untangle this mess of its own making with the D.C. government.

It seems the popular blow dry establishment, at 1825 Wisconsin Ave., NW, near Safeway, never quite applied for the correct business permits, when it opened almost a year ago. So, on Aug. 16, the D.C. Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs, shut it down.

“There was a technical glitch or error in the business license filing with the D.C. government. Drybar is working diligently with it to correct the error. Meanwhile, we are routing appointments to our Bethesda shop,” a company spokesperson told the Georgetowner.

“They came in to get their certificate of occupancy last week and are working to obtain the necessary salon business license,” emailed DCRA’s Helder Gil to Georgetown Patch, which first reported the closing.

“We truly and sincerely apologize and are working as quickly as possible to untangle this mess!” wrote Drybar founder and owner to her clients. “We will let you know as soon as it is resolved.”
