Justin Anderson

We sat down with everyone’s favorite hair guru, Justin Anderson. Justin is a native of Southern California so he grew up near the water and spent his time surfing with his parents & siblings. All of that time in the sun naturally lightened his hair, which led him to pursue a career coloring hair and starting his own hair care line, dpHUE.

Katonya Breaux

Today we’re sitting down with Katonya Breaux to talk all things SUNSCREEN. Katonya spent the first 20 years of her career in the construction business and NEVER thought she would end up in the skincare industry. She grew up in Los Angeles and spent a lot of time outdoors -- never wearing sunscreen and figuring that dark skin wasn’t as affected by the sun. But after one visit to the dermatologist to have a mole checked out, she was told it was from sun damage. She went to buy sunscreen and was frustrated by the lack of clean sunscreen products for people of color -- so she founded Unsun Cosmetics which provides clean, no-residue sun protection products. It’s so major. She has played a HUGE role in educating people of color on the need to protect their skin from sun damage and skin cancer and she’s had a BIG influence on making sure the skincare industry is becoming more inclusive. She breaks down all things SPF/sunscreen -- from micro level ingredients, to bluelight and what effect it actually has on your skin, to how to incorporate SPF into your makeup routine.

Arielle Lorre

Join me as I sit down with Arielle Lorre -- one of the most transparent people out there when it comes to the beauty treatments and procedures she’s had done. She is also one of the most well-versed and knowledgeable beauty influencers out there. After hitting rock bottom and almost losing her battle against addiction, she decided to turn her life around by relentlessly pursuing health and happiness and found her passion in being a creator. She has a blog and podcast called The Blonde Files where she covers everything from fitness to fashion to wellness. She has interviewed the coolest people in the beauty and skincare industries and knows every single product, procedure and game changing hack out there. This interview was AMAZING because she is so open with everything she has tried (the good and the bad) and she spills everything from her very first Botox appointment, to her biggest beauty regret, to how the doctor chooses where to pull fat from for a fat transfer. We also get into whether celebrities and influencers should be more transparent in general about whether or not they’ve had work done.
