Carol’s Daughter Founder: “Be Brave, Be Bold, Be Smart”

The founder of Carol’s Daughter—and Carol’s actual daughter, of course—Lisa Price proved her cottage industry an exception 20 years ago when she transformed her hobby of mixing up fragrances and lotions in her Brooklyn kitchen into a veritable beauty empire. A former writer’s assistant for The Cosby Show, Price started experimenting with fragrance in her spare time. In 1994, she established Carol’s Daughter, the line of hair and body products that went on to count Jada Pinkett-Smith, Erykah Badu, and Halle Berry as loyal customers. Last month, L’Oreal USA acquired Carol’s Daughter to live alongside its big-time brands like Maybelline, Clarisonic, Urban Decay, and NYX.
