Career Code: Alli Webb on the Revolutionary Career Advice She Lives by

Emily Algar

In honour of Hillary Kerr and Katherine Power’s book, The Career Code: Must-Know Rules for a Strategic, Stylish, and Self-Made Career ($20), we’re kicking off an interview series featuring 17 questions (in honour of the book’s 17 chapters) about the work lives of the most inspirational female leaders in the beauty industry.

Compressing Alli Webb's bio into one easily-digested paragraph is no easy feat, but I'll give it a go anyway. From humble beginnings as a hair stylist, Webb had a (quite literally) million dollar idea to open a salon that specialised in one thing: Blowouts. Thus, Drybar was born. Fast forward to today, and Drybar is found in almost 100 locations across the world (and growing), not to mention, it also boasts an incredible range of at-home products. The Drybars themselves are set up like—you guessed it—bars, with blow out styles options like Mai Tai (beachy waves) and Cosmo (loose curls) on the menu. While Drybar salons aren't available in Australia just yet (but we're crossing our fingers), the Drybar product range just launched into Sephora Australia, and it's epic. We caught up with Webb while she was in Australia for the launch, and she was kind enough to share her best career tips. Take it from us when we say that, hair empire aside, Webb has some sage advice that will inspire not only your career goals, but your life in general.
