March is Women's Month: Celebrating Women in Beauty
Women have an innate understanding of beauty and how feeling gorgeous is a confidence booster. Some of our favorite beauty brands have one thing in common—a founder who is a woman. In honor of Women’s History Month, let’s look at some of these innovative and trendsetting businesswomen.
Jen Atkin of OUAI
There has been lots of buzz around the OUAI haircare line, created by hairstylist to the stars Jen Atkin. Her goal? To make luxurious hair care available to everyone, not just celebs. Her desire to create OUAI was to cut through the clutter of the oversaturated hair product market, listen to the issues that people have regarding their hair and address the needs of their busy lifestyles. OUAI was born in 2016 and the popularity of these effective products has them flying off the shelves of retailers like Sephora.
Kate Somerville has used her own skin struggles with painful eczema to create a powerful skincare brand. With a work ethic and fierce determination to succeed, she was inspired in esthetician school to combine active ingredients to help clients heal faster after cosmetic surgery. Celebrities jumped on board when she opened an esthetics clinic inside a cosmetic surgery office. She bottled her super facial to help a client who wanted to bring it with her while filming on location and her foray into skincare products for home use was born.
Happy Women’s History Month to the ladies who make us look and feel beautiful and confident, including our own founder!
