ALYSON BONADDIO & LEIDA EBRAHIMI
OWNERS & STYLISTS
Best friends since third grade, our friendship has grown from neighborhood companions to school classmates to business partners. Although we spent considerable time together growing up, we were separated for four years while working on our college degrees—Aly attending San Diego State University and Leida attending San Francisco State University. During this four-year period we stayed in close contact and continued to keep our entrepreneurial ideas alive. After moving back to the Bay Area, we reunited to create a unique, yet simple hair styling business concept. Shortly after, we launched our successful Blow Dry Bar business at the age of 22.
Everyday is still a learning process. People think it gets easier as the time goes on, but that’s not the truth. We still give 100% in everything we do and we are not afraid to take risks. In fact, we have both been like that since we met in the 3rd grade. Maybe that’s why we clicked so well then and have been able to turn our friendship into a successful business partnership.
Provide the best blowout to make women feel as confident as possible. Anyone can provide a blowout service, but what makes us special is the quality of our work coupled with our excellent customer service we pride ourselves on. We make sure every woman who walks out our door feels like their 45 minute service exceeded all their expectations.
Our vibe is extremely upbeat and welcoming. You can either use 'bdb studio' as a social setting where you can chat with your stylist for 45 minutes or choose to sit back and relax and catch up on reading with our iPads.
