EP 41 - Alli Webb
I met Alli Webb way back in 2012. She did my hair. I didn't even know that she was going to be the one doing it. But we struck up a friendship and we've kept in touch. And she is, of course, the founder of Dry Bar, which started the whole craze to go get your hair done at a salon. She said that it started because people wanted to go get their hair done a couple of times a week so they don't have to do it themselves. And, at the end of the day, it's just nice. And somebody plays with your hair at least. I like it. So it's a great, great way to have a little girls night out. Go get your hair done, a Dry Bar, and go out to dinner and grab some drinks. And at least that's how I use the experience. We had a great conversation about a lot about growing, growing as a human being and the trials and tribulations of life and what it throws at you. And just because someone is accomplishing really great things doesn't mean that they aren't struggling. We talked about the things that she's been going through and and where she's looking to expand as as a person and to grow stronger. But one thing's for sure, Dry Bar is going strong. One hundred and thirty locations and growing. I really enjoyed talking to Alli and having a very meaningful conversation.
Alli Webb founded Drybar in 2010 after spending 15 years as a professional stylist. She attended the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale and began her career in fashion in New York City in the early ‘90s working for designer Nicole Miller. The first Drybar opened in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles in 2010 and was an overnight sensation.
