Here’s What’s Wrong with the Fashion and Beauty Industry w/ Brittany Hennessy At The Bar

    • Society & Culture

This week, Kristin and Lindsay talk about diversity in fashion and beauty. Kristin shares a number of personal experiences—like the time she emailed a big-name retailer to ask why they didn’t have Black models, and received a disingenuous, half-hearted response. (Spoiler alert: the brand posted a Black square on their Instagram account last month.) She also talks about the difficulties Black women face at hair salons and in the beauty aisles of drugstores. 
 
Kristin and Lindsay also chat with Brittany Hennessy, the best-selling author of “INFLUENCER: Building Your Personal Brand In The Age Of Social Media.”
 
Brittany joins At the Bar to shed some light on the reasons why white influencers and models have historically received more offers than Black influencers and models, as well as the lack of diversity in the teams that are tasked with casting for social media campaigns.
 
We also explore “cancel culture” and the issues that brands are currently having in their attempt to become more diverse.
