August 28, 2019

Serial entrepreneur Alli Webb

Today we’re chatting with serial entrepreneur Alli Webb. She’s the co-founder of Drybar, one of the original chain blow dry bars, launched nearly a decade ago. In this episode, Alli re-counts the key moments that turned a quaint, #MomBoss beauty idea into a $100M success story. (Now, there are 92 locations who do 120,000 blowouts a month.) Stay tuned as your humble hosts review Drybar’s best selling dry shampoo— then, we give you the scoop on a surprise mascara collaboration, dubbed “a blowout for your lashes,” entering stores right now!

She also fills us in on her newest venture launched earlier this year. Meet Squeeze, a massage bar that aims to give you a customized, consistent and expertly branded experience for your bod. Basically it’s a Drybar for massages instead of blowouts!

A happy Squeeze customer

And because Alli aims just as high as one of her hair-raising blowouts, the beauty mogul also shares her top business-savvy advice on Raising the Bar podcast, co-hosted by her brother and business partner Michael Landau. Tune in for some choice advice she’s most used in trying times herself, before Alli bends our ear with a sneak peek of what’s to come on her upcoming reality t.v. show (who doesn’t cry for a good makeover!?)
