Elline Surianello, founder of LeMetric Hair Center for women, wowed the audience with her story. Imagine starting to lose your hair at the age of 9, and struggling with hair loss all through your teens and early 20s … and then turning it all around into a career that helps women in the same boat look and feel beautiful! Elline’s talk was honest, open, and inspiring. The key message – if you’re unhappy with something – CHANGE it! It’s in your power! Read more about Elline Surianello.
Dr. Valerie White shared her thoughts on the power of positive thinking … beauty from the inside out. She was a perfect complement to Elline’s empowering message.
Last but not least, Betty’s own Beauty+Style editor Lois Joy Johnson made true on her promise to talk about how to be HEALTHY, HIP, and HOT! She was terrific – and even brought a special guest, celebrity makeup artist Sandy Linter who joined Lois on stage to chat about makeup secrets. Next week we’ll be posting the highlights from Lois’ talk – for now check out her latest article on budget style!
These ladies are READY TO BETTY!
