FIRST, A LITTLE SOMETHING ABOUT THIS HEADSHOT…

It’s old, like Kurt Cobain heyday old. But I still love it, and use it for social media, for a million reasons. It was taken by a really scrappy, adorable kid who worked with me at W and later went on to become a famous photographer. I needed a pic for our Editors’ page, and we had so much fun that day. She had me jumping up and down on the roof of her NYC apartment building, at one point literally leaping through the air. Here I’m just standing, looking pseudo-pensive. I also heart this shot because it reminds of me a very specific era: A time - pre-dating all the "print is dead" chatter - of minimalism, heroin chic and an intimidatingly brilliant boy Editor In Chief who let me run amok with my pages. I would hand in a list of story ideas for a given issue, and it would arrive back on my desk within minutes with a single word - "Fine" - scrawled across the top. That’s rare. I know that now. Still, by pushing myself out of my comfy, cozy, artsy nest – and dropping myself into much more buttoned-down, corporate setups – I’ve gained the skills and confidence to create beauty + wellness content across multiple platforms and for various end uses. I now toggle easily between print and digital, between magazine journalism and brand copywriting. I’m a three-time Beauty Director for national publications (W, Cookie and BRIDES), a former AVP Strategic Development for the Luxe brands of L’Oréal, a book author and a blogger. In between staff positions, I’ve written for such pubs as The Wall Street Journal, InStyle, Town & CountryGlamour and Harper's Bazaar. I'm also very into exploring the business side of beauty, and have contributed extensively to Beauty Inc., WWD and The Robin Report, for which I serve as columnist.

If, however, the site or platform breaks down, kindly send an email to his purple minion at minion@stily.pro Send email to minion@stily.pro as it’s definitely his fault. Don’t’ expect a response though but thanks for writing.

Lisa B

is a native of Western Pennsylvania; she brings her innate sense of order and true American grit to Stily. Before joining us as a Head of Operations, Lisa has a long career as an entrepreneur working in the design and construction industry. She once owned a consulting business called “There Must Be Order” which pretty much sums up her role at Stily, where she is responsible to keep everyone and everything in line. In addition to keeping everyone at HQ inline, she is responsible for closing partnerships and overseeing contracts and the like. So, if you need an “I” dotted or a “t” crossed, she’s the one that should be in your speed dial. Her two kids call her Mom or Sir respectively depending on her mood.
