Sharmadean Reid

Founder of @beautystack / Formerly @wahnails + @futuregirlcorp - I know beauty + tech + communities + girls

Sharmadean Reid is the founder of beautystack, a new way to book beauty services online which emphasizes individual artists and creators. A recent seed funding round has made Reid one of the few black women to raise over £1m.

After creating a beloved hip hop fanzine and working as a stylist and brand consultant for companies like Nike, Sharmadean Reid found a cult following through her ultra cool London-based nail salon, WAH Nails.

Reid has long experimented with beauty and new technologies, such as a VR Nail Design app, and worked to create resources to help young women build sustainable careers, such as Future Girls Corp, an online platform with advice, events, and information for future female CEOs. Her work has also earned her an MBE.

You can ask her ANYTHING about beauty tech, entrepreneurship, why beauty tech sucks, and all of the projects she's been working on.
