Hi! I’m Javania, and I was given the opportunity to interview Lisa Price, Founder and President of Carol’s Daughter natural hair and skin care products in Danyelle’s absence (she was having fun in Miami at SheCon). I was nervous and a bit scared because I did not want to disappoint—- I am my own WORST critic.
The event, “Celebrate the Color of Beauty” was held at Macy’s in Fairview Heights, Illinois at St. Clair Square. The afternoon was full of beauty, fashion, and natural hair. MAC artists showed the guests how to apply make-up correctly, INC showcased the summer’s fashion in a show hosted by Tammie Holland from St Louis’ 104.9, and Nancy Calkenbusch was there to assist with bra fittings.
Lisa Price spoke about current and new products, how she started off (17 years ago in her apartment), and then opened the floor for questions. The type of questions asked, includes how to eliminate dry hair, having healthy relaxed hair, and the best shampoo for dry scalp and etc. Every question was answered with a product from Carol’s Daughter. (I LOVE IT)
One young lady asked Price for advice on starting a business and she offered up her time afterwards to speak to her one on one so that people could get their hair questions in.
In my conversation with Lisa Price we spoke about how the new ad campaign with Solange Knowles, Cassie, and Selita Eubanks came about. She also talked about how she feels natural hair is a movement and not a fad (I felt that it was, but she promptly schooled me), and shared some of her success tips.
Meeting Lisa Price was an honor. She is truly an inspiration for young entrepreneurs such as myself. She has a true willingness to help people and a desire to see others achieve their dreams as she has. Overall, I had a great time at the event. The conversation between Mrs. Price and myself is below. Enjoy the interview!
