Alli Webb, Founder, Drybar
Alli is the founder of Drybar and a lifelong blowdry maven. Before becoming a full-time mom to Grant and Kit, Alli had a career in public relations, working with clients such as Faith Hill, Paul McCartney and Keith Urban. She’s a professional hairstylist, trained by Toni & Guy, and spent several years working under the late, great John Sahag in NYC. In 2008, she began a side business called Straight-at-Home, which provided in-home blowouts on a referral basis in LA. When her business and popularity quickly outgrew her one-woman show, she decided to expand and start Drybar. Alli’s achievements include a 2014 CEW Achiever Award, Fortune’s “40 under 40,” Marie Claire’s “16 Most Fascinating Women,” Cosmopolitan’s “2013 Power List” and Fast Company’s “100 Most Creative People in Business.”
