Alli Webb is a woman who’s proficient in the art of insider secrets. As the founder of the premier blow out bar Drybar, she’s perfected the art to getting the perfect blowout—and creating a fun, flirty and marketable brand. Now, Webb, who lives in Orange County, has debuted her first, best-selling book entitledThe Drybar Guide to Good Hair For All. This how-to book with tips and tricks from the blowout guru herself will make it easy for anyone to achieve signature styled looks in their very own home. Readers will learn how to do the Manhattan (sleek and smooth), the Dirty Martini (tousled and textured), Southern Comfort (big hair, lots of volume) and so much more.
