Alli Webb        

Entrepreneur, N.Y. Times Bestselling Author, Co-Founder & Chief Creative Officer of Drybar & Squeeze

Alli Webb is an Entrepreneur, N.Y. Times Bestselling Author, and Co-Founder of Drybar & Squeeze. After spending 15 years as a professional hair stylist, Webb left the professional hair industry in 2005 to start a family, but decided to find a way to continue pursuing the creative side of hairstyling at a new-mom pace. She began offering affordable in-home blowout services to her mommy friends, which quickly expanded into a mobile operation by 2009.

In 2010, Webb opened the first Drybar in Brentwood, CA. Almost 10 years later and over 100 locations across the U.S., Webb’s Drybar has exploded into a nationally-recognized and highly sought-after brand. Webb has also diversified the Drybar brand, creating a line of products and tools sold at popular retailers such as Nordstrom, Sephora, and Ulta.

Webb has been named one of the “100 Most Creative People in Business” by Fast Company, featured on Fortune magazine’s “40 Under 40” list, recognizing her as one of the top young businesswomen in the world and Marie Claire’s “Most Fascinating Women.”

In July 2018, Webb launched a podcast with her brother and business partner Michael Landau called “Raising the Bar.” The weekly show provides a platform to budding entrepreneurs.

Webb recently joined season 10 of ABC’s Emmy-nominated hit show “Shark Tank” as a new guest shark.

This March, Webb opened the doors to her next business venture Squeeze, an innovative massage concept that lets you book and pay online - the latest extension of her ever-expanding empire. Squeeze’s first location is set in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Studio City.

Webb currently resides in Los Angeles, CA with her two sons.


Drybar’s Alli Webb: Stay-At-Home Mom Turned Hair-Styling Mogul
Would you like The Cosmo? The Manhattan? Maybe a Dirty Martini? Personally, I want them all and thankfully, not one yields a hangover. At Drybar, there are no cuts, coloring, or headaches (or hard alcohol). Just blowouts for $40. Creator Alli Webb tapped into what LA moms needed (and what the rest of us were craving), even when others didn’t believe the business would be a successful one. “To all those people out there with an idea and dream, ignore the naysayers,” says Webb. “I say, just go for it!”
