Follow What You Love Despite the Fear


Sadly, the things that scare us most are also often our biggest opportunities. It’s easy to sit in our comfort zone where things feel safe and unchallenging, but if you’re not excited to get out of bed in the morning, then it’s time to throw away your fears and pursue your passions.

Challenge yourself to do something you’re scared of.

Alli Webb is an N.Y. Times Bestselling Author, Co-Founder of Drybar and Squeeze. After spending 15 years as a professional hairstylist, Webb left the professional hair industry in 2005 to start a family, but after being a stay-at-home mom for 5 years, Webb 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, CA. 10 years later and over 150+ locations across the U.S., Webb’s Drybar has exploded into a nationally recognized and highly sought-after brand. Webb diversified the Drybar brand, creating a line of products and tools sold at popular retailers such as Nordstrom, Sephora, and Ulta, recently selling this product division to Helen of Troy for $255 million.

Webb has been named the “100 Most Creative People in Business” by Fast Company, featured on Fortune magazine’s “40 Under 40” list, Marie Claire’s “Most Fascinating Women” covered Inc Magazine’s “How I Did This” issue and recently Inc. magazine recognized her as one of “The 100 Women Building America’s Most Innovative and Ambitious Businesses.”

In 2018 Webb began filling the digital airwaves with “Raising the Bar” a podcast she co-hosts with her partner Adrian Koehler. The weekly show provides a glimpse into the inner worlds of entrepreneurs.

Webb appeared on season 10 of ABC’s Emmy-nominated hit show “Shark Tank” as a guest shark in 2019.

Recently, Webb opened the doors to her next business venture Squeeze, an innovative massage concept that lets you book and pay online – the latest extension of her expanding empire where she operates as an active angel investor, advisor and co-founder. Squeeze’s first location is set in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Studio City.

Webb currently resides in Los Angeles, CA with her two sons.
