Founder, Drybar & Co-Founder, Squeeze
Alli Webb is an Entrepreneur, N.Y. Times Bestselling Author, and Founder of Drybar. 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. Eight years later, 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.
In March, Webb opened the doors to her next business venture Squeeze, a massage joint, that allows customers to fully customize their massage experience including booking and payment from the app. 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.
