This resourceful business woman sits down with PYNK Magazine to discuss her burgeoning brands, and offers advice to young entrepreneurs, inspiring them to make their dreams a reality.
What inspired you to launch your beauty brands–Lisha Lee Cosmetics and Hollywood Sensation?
On the hair tip: What are your top sellers? Describe the quality of Hollywood Sensation hair and textures?
My top seller is definitely the Brazilian Body Wave. Brazilian hair is so versatile and easily styled, and is the thickest among all virgin hair types. All of Hollywood Sensations luxury hair is medium to high maintenance, and medium luster. Another one of my best sellers is our EURASIAN Body Wave, which is a special bond of bohemian and Asian virgin hair. It’s very silky and smooth, easily styled, with very low maintenance. Another popular line is my European Blonde collection, which is primarily worn by Caucasian women.
I feel like my brands are different due to them being unique, great quality and still affordable to all income levels. My brand has a lot of great customers and I’m honest with my customers. I want to motivate young girls and let them know that with hard work and determination, you can build an empire and be successful. Also I would never sell or distribute anything I wouldn’t wear myself. The only way you learn your business and brand is by investing your own time and using your own products before selling to others.
I have always absolutely loved fashion, and I consider myself to be creative! All of the designs I’ve created are different items I haven’t seen before. I am very hands on and very detailed when it came to designing the apparel. I also like to design pieces that I would like to see around for the spring and summer.
I have a few ventures such as expanding my business to different states as well as overseas. I am working on a television show, and this Summer I have a few fashion shows that my apparel will be featured in.
I suggest to young entrepreneurs to keep dreaming, keep striving, nothing comes to a dreamer but a dream. You have to get out here grind and hustle! You will get some doors shut in your face, but keep pushing and strive for excellence. I started my business in ten minutes and with no money, or no help from anyone. If I can do it, you can do it too!
