Oct 20, 2018

The best part of INTERMIX is you—our clients! You make us who we are today.  For our 25th anniversary, we wanted to highlight 25 women (all of which we have been lucky enough to dress) to share their favorite brand memories with us.

From breaking the glass ceiling to raising millions of dollars in capital, this group of women have not only conquered the corner office, but rewritten the rules along the way. Most importantly, they keep us motivate to run (not walk) toward our dreams. Introducing our “Ladies Who Launch.” 

Since launching in 2009, professional hairstylist Alli Webb conquered the salon landscape with multibillion dollar business—Drybar—a 100+ location (and counting) franchise specializing in blowouts. Named one of the top “100 Brilliant Ideas of 2010” by Entrepreneur Magazine and New York Magazine’s Boom Brands of 2013, the longtime stylist expanded recently into haircare and styling tools, sold exclusively at Sephora, Ulta, and Nordstrom.

Following a move from Manhattan to California, Cheryl Yannotti Foland realized that women needed a better option for makeup—one focused on quality, not quantity.
