As feminist icon Fleabag put it: hair is everything. This week’s episode is ALL about hair, with former J. Walter Thompson CEO and sustainable haircare entrepreneur Lynn Power talking to me about starting a beauty company in the middle of a pandemic. Lynn, along with having the ultimate surname for this podcast, also has the best mansplaining story we’ve heard so far. Yes, it’s funny, and yes, it involves a horrific male misunderstanding of the female anatomy. Besides that little gem, you’ll also find out how Lynn co-founded the minimalist japanese inspired haircare brand Masami, which uses sustainable seaweed from the north coast of Japan as it’s moisture-giving ingredient - and why discussing money with your co-founder straight away can save a lot of bother in the long run. Lynn and I also get down and dirty with discussions on ageism, diversity in the C suite, and why advertising is one of the worst offenders in terms of the gender pay gap and #MeToo moments.
