Alli Webb has managed to capture that lightning in a bottle with Drybar.  Alli has never let the fear of failure stop her from building a business. She has experienced exponential growth over the last 8 years because she filled a gap in the market at the perfect time.  105+ Drybar locations (doing 1.2 million blowouts every year), developing a hair care product line, writing a New York Times bestseller, and raising two incredible children.


Alli is down-to-earth, funny, present and so, so kind.  This powerhouse was recently on Fortune’s 40 Under 40 list—GOALS.  She took time away from her busy schedule for an afternoon with us. She is such an expander for us, and we know she will be for you too!
