About Us

Beauty is not who you are on the outside, it is the wisdom and time you gave away to save another struggling soul like you.
— Shannon L. Alder

The pro beauty business is an over 40 billion dollar per year industry in the US.  It is fast-paced, global and forever changing.  One day over a casual glass of wine ( or maybe it was champagne), Deborah Carver and Melanie Kopeikin started to discuss global communication and educational access for the people in the beauty industry and also for those who might be interested in learning about it.  Both lifetime veterans of the beauty business and stewards of its success, Deb and Mel decided to begin the podcast project and co-produce the show.

Some of the most successful business leaders and entrepreneurs lead beauty product companies of all sorts and sizes. Talented hairdressers, estheticians, nail techs, lash artists and other beauty professionals establish trends and new innovative techniques.
