In a recent Forbes article, Drybar entrepreneur Alli Webb talks about the humble beginnings of her now-massive empire. Since 2009, Webb has gone from "peddling her services from a 2001 Nissan Xterra, driving around L.A." to owning more than 20 blow-out salons nationwide.
This Thursday, she'll open yet another, this time in Santa Monica. As Webb explained in a flier recently emailed out to announce the news, it's a homecoming of sorts considering that Drybar's beginnings were on the westside of LA. Doors open at 8am and Webb will be there all day to greet clients.
