Lisa Price Speaker Profile:

Lisa Price is the founder and CEO of Carol’s Daughter a line of beauty products, including products for hair, body, and face care, as well as fragrances.  Lisa began working on the products for her line in the 1980s, while working on the set of The Cosby Show. In her free time she made organic beauty products in her kitchen. Her experimentation eventually led to a successful mail-order and online business in 1993, followed by the opening of her first store in Brooklyn in 1999. During the fall of 2005, she opened a second store on 125th Street in Harlem.  Over time, Carol’s Daughter has exploded into a multi-million dollar beauty empire with celebrity investors including rapper Jay-Z and actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, selling products at its stores, on its website – as well as TargetWalgreens, Ulta Salon, Sally Beauty stores and the Home Shopping Network.  In 2014, the brand was acquired by Loreal USA.
