Growing a small business using social media is the most exhausting fun you’ll ever have (after raising children, of course) but the friends we make and the relationships we’ve built we will cherish for a lifetime.
Lindsey Ellen (@lindseyellenbeauty) is definitely one of our faves! We picked her to be our Fun Fearless Female today because of 4 main reasons….1/ She is a kick-butt hairstylist 2/She is an equally kick-butt makeup artist 3/She is a wife & MOM OF FOUR! 4/ She has the best spirit and is always ready for an adventure in beauty! For example…check out the first video she ever did for us. We were DM-ing back and forth about hair one night and she said, “Hold on…I’ll get you a video of how I did it,” and JUST LIKE THAT, 20min later,there was a video in our inbox. BAM! We have been friends ever since! Check out her video here:
fave4: What was your craziest hairstyle growing up?
Lindsey: Craziest hairstyle was a slicked back ponytail with 1 inch tendrils on sides curled with a half inch curling iron. Sorry, you aren’t getting ANY pics of that! ha!
fave4: What’s been the most exciting part of your career as a traveling makeup artist and hairstylist?
Lindsey: Doing the CMAs and winning the 2018 Skin Games People’s Choice Player of the Year in LA last year. I worked super hard and couldn’t have been more thrilled with the outcome!
fave4: If you could only use 4 products on your next wedding party, what two makeup items and 2 hair times would you choose???
Lindsey: I’d choose mascara and a brow pencil and Texture Takeover & Flex Reflect Hairsprays. Texture and shine are a must!
fave4: Where do you go do inspiration?
Lindsey: I love perusing Instagram and Pinterest. I always get excited when I discover new people doing amazing things. I could get sucked in for hours at a time! (us too, Lindz!)
BONUS: What’s your favorite fave4 products?
Lindsey: Texture Takeover Hairspray because of its insane versatility. I can pretty much create ANYTHING with that thing!

You may have seen this pretty face and gorgeous hair on our Instagram, but now you get to know brains that belong to this beauty! Lauren Vizza doesn't do anything small and 2019 will be no different! A journalist, news anchor, 2x state pageant titleholder, mom to a fur baby, philanthropist, daughter and sister just isn't enough for Lauren...she's getting ready to marry her college sweetheart from Louisiana Tech in April (in England!) and is even starting her own business...launching today called Vizza Rich Communications Strategies. She's looking forward to pulling from her past experiences (and she has a lot!) to coach business professionals, students, athletes and more! laurenvizzarich.com
fave4: Whats your favorite fave4 product and how do you use it?
Lauren: I love the Texture Takeover hairspray! I use all of them depending on what the style, weather, and occasion calls for but the Texture Takeover is my everyday choice! I spray it while I curl my hair the first day and then use it to touch up until the next hair washing day! It helps keep my style without adding extra gunk or weight! My other fave is Workable Wear which also sees lots of curl time especially when I'm getting ready to go on-air! See how Lauren gets her morning look here.
