This past Saturday, we kicked off our 4-week educational digital series, Home Hustlers: Beauty Edition where we called all beauty makers, beauty influencers, content creators, wellness gurus and any woman desiring to take her brand in beauty, fashion, or wellness to the next level.
In partnership with Creme of Nature, each month we’re bringing you the tools you need in our 4-week digital event series that is sure to introduce you to the best-in-class tools, provide insight from industry experts, and the opportunity to connect with like-minded creators and entrepreneurs.
Week 1: The New Disruptors in Beauty: Women Shaking up the Biz
In Week 1, we had to shake things up a little bit as we set out to introduce our audience to The New Disruptors in Beauty: Women Shaking up the Biz– and let us be the first to say, these women did just that!
The New Disruptors in Beauty: Women Shaking Up the Biz panel included the following experts: Alisha Brooks and Elizabeth Austin-Davis, Founders of Black Hair Experience, Piersten Gaines, Founder of Pressed Roots, and Courtney Bryant, Digital Content Creator.
Week 1’s workshop included our very own Marty McDonald and Corporate and Financial Strategist, Ingrid Lavon.
