Shark Tank Biography
Alli Webb is an entrepreneur, New York Times best-selling author and founder of Drybar. After spending 15 years as a professional hair stylist, Webb left the professional hair industry in 2005 to start a family but decided to find a way to continue pursuing the creative side of hairstyling at a new-mom pace. She began offering affordable in-home blowout services to her mommy friends, which quickly expanded into a mobile operation by 2009. In 2010, Webb opened the first Drybar in Brentwood, California. Eight years later, over 100 locations across the U.S., Webb's Drybar has exploded into a nationally recognized and highly sought-after brand. Webb has also diversified the Drybar brand, creating a line of products and tools sold at popular retailers such as Nordstrom, Sephora and Ulta.
Webb has been named one of the "100 Most Creative People in Business" by Fast Company, featured on Fortune magazine's "40 Under 40" list, recognizing her as one of the top young businesswomen in the world and Marie Claire's "Most Fascinating Women." In July, Webb launched a podcast with her brother and business partner, Michael Landau, called "Raising the Bar," the latest extension of her ever-expanding empire. The weekly show provides a platform to budding entrepreneurs.
