BRANDI MARTINEZ / owner

Brandi began her career at J. Gregory Salon in Colorado Springs in 2012. Here she learned a variety of different skills and techniques as it relates to hair styling and coloring. She left J. Gregory Salon after an allergy to the hair color and other chemicals took a turn for the worse. She has always wanted to open a salon and her allergy wasn’t going to stop her.

She traveled to Los Angeles to study airbrush makeup. It was then that she found a passion for makeup and it’s ability to enhance an individual. She has since then worked on hundreds of brides and began to focus on makeup and hair styling for special occasions.

She opened Blush Dry Bar Salon in 2018 where she and her staff focus on blowouts, makeup, eyelash extensions, and hair extensions. Brandi’s goal is to use her talent to educate, empower, and enable women to look and feel like the best version of themselves not only on their wedding day, but everyday.
