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!

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!? Plus, Alli gets personal about why this has been one of the most difficult years of her life and stay tuned to the end to discover her blowdry hack.
