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!

We chat about…


  • Alli’s always-changing routine
  • The journey to creating Drybar (by way of house calls)
  • The ups + downs of running a business with your family
  • Accessible self-care
  • The most difficult parts of being an entrepreneur (especially in the first few years of building a business)
  • Showing up as a mom + building a business
  • Transitioning from stay-at-home mom to badass breadwinner
  • Creating the unique Drybar branding + Alli’s advice for creating your own brand
  • Why working at Drybar isn’t for every stylist
  • Balancing being open + creating reasonable boundaries online
  • Making the time to take care of yourself as an entrepreneur
  • Alli’s advice for her younger self
