Wynne

I’ve known for Wynne Sisk for ten years. That’s how long she’s been keeping my hair blonde, even as it turns gray. Wynne is a salon owner and professional hair stylist, and each time I sit in her chair, I ask her a million questions. That’s because Wynne is also my go-to person for healthy lifestyle tips. Because of her, I no longer heat my food in plastic containers, and I’m slowly but surely moving towards a whole foods diet.

Above all things, Wynne’s a mom to four beautiful little girls and she’s passionate about keeping them healthy—from the foods they eat to the products they put on their skin. That’s why she’s added Beautycounter products to her business of helping women look and feel their best.

“Beautycounter is devoted to progress in the skin care industry,” Wynne says. “They’re on a mission to get safe products in the hands of everyone.”

“A lot of health issues woman face are related to products we use on our skin each day. These products can contain ingredients that are hormone disruptors…endocrine disruptors,” she says. “I want to be here for a long time, and I want my kids to be here for a long time.”

Beautycounter stands firmly behind their “Never List”—ingredients you’ll never find in their products.

“I love that the goal of Beautycounter is to share the mission,” Wynne says. “The mission is of higher importance than simply selling the products. Plus, Beautycounter products are not only safe, but they perform really well. The skin care works just as well as the expensive, luxury brands, but without the harmful chemicals.”

As long time hair stylist, Wynne says that after she tested the shampoo and conditioner, she was sold. She knew she could make the switch to Beautycounter. “When I realized I would use these products on my clients, that’s when I embraced Beautycounter 100%.”

Listen To Your Mother: Charleston is made possible in part with the help of local sponsors. Today we shine the spotlight on Stella & Dot Stylist, Stephanie Hughes Pratt. Stephanie shares why Stella & Dot is the perfect career for her, and why it might also be the perfect career for YOU.

Stephanie

My story:

I’m a journalist and former Channel 4 reporter here in Charleston, but for the last eight years, I’ve moved around the country supporting my husband in his career and staying home with our two kids. Recently, we moved back to Charleston and my youngest child started elementary school. I knew it was time to do something just for me. I wanted a fun, flexible career with great perks. I knew exactly what I’d do:

The reason I became a Stella & Dot stylist is simple! It’s a fun, flexible career. And I LOVE the jewelry.

I first discovered Stella & Dot at a friend’s trunk show a few years ago when we were living in Portland, OR.  I loved and wanted everything! But instead of buying everything (my husband would have killed me), I ordered one pair of $40 earrings and decided to invite some of my friends over for my own trunk show.  After my party, I earned over $250 in free jewelry and bags!

I was hooked!

I don’t come from a sales background, but I’m outgoing and friendly and can talk to anyone.  I sell Stella and Dot because I LOVE it and wear it and love helping other people feel their best.  Plus, how many other businesses can you start for $200?

No need for an expensive wardrobe. Stella & Dot can dress up any outfit at a price you can afford.

 

Stella and Dot

 

Stella & Dot is a celebrity fan favorite and is regularly seen all over TV on shows like The Real Housewives, The Bachelor, The Today Show and in fashion magazines like Vogue, Elle, InStyle and many more. The best part? It’s affordable! Half of the line is under $50 and all jewelry is shipped straight to the customer for a $5.95 flat fee.

As a stay-at-home mom I have long since donated my working girl suits and I don’t spend a lot of money on clothes.  But I still like to feel stylish and current.  Stella & Dot allows me to make my Target and Old Navy wardrobe look much more fashionable and trendy.

Most of their pieces are versatile.  Earrings convert from dangles to studs, necklaces can be worn long or short or even as bracelets.  Wallets have cellphone pockets.  It’s really smart design!

I also LOVE our personalized collection. All of our engraving is free and arrives within a week.  Perfect for Mother’s Day!

Is Stella & Dot for you? 

My job is F-U-N!!  Most importantly I’m here when my kids get off the school bus, and when they’re sick, and on school vacations.  I can take my job anywhere. If you’d like to learn more about being a stylist or about hosting your own trunk show and earning hundreds of dollars in free accessories please call me at 617-272-6684 or email me at stephaniehughespratt@yahoo.com.

Charleston cast members express “themselfies”

April 13, 2015

It was Sunday afternoon, about an hour before our first rehearsal. Listen To Your Mother: Charleston cast member Erica Alcox posted to our Facebook group page: “Post your ‘excited’ selfie here!” Followed by this: Here’s what happened next: Cast member Tanya Robinson gave us options: Betsy Harper snapped a selfie while her mom (and reading partner) Kris drove. Safety first! The energy flowed right through the doors of the Center for Women, where we held our first table read. We bonded instantly over shared stories. When it was all over, we snapped a group selfie. Just a few hours later, cast member Kate Berrio took to her blog, acknowledging that this whole thing, this whole Listen To Your Mother live storytelling thing, isn’t about our “selfie” at all. …I can tell you that I am unequivocally all about my castmates. I sat around, utterly mesmerized and totally sucked in to each and every one […]

Supporting South Carolina families in need

March 23, 2015

When I try to describe what it’s like to direct and produce a local Listen To Your Mother show, the words “Love Project” come to mind. Much work is involved—but when the work has meaning it makes all the difference. Listen To Your Mother began as one show in Madison, Wisconsin in 2010 and this year, 39 cities across the country will produce and direct their own unique LTYM shows. In addition to giving a voice to our stories about motherhood, LTYM aims to support non-profit organizations that help families in need. To date, this live storytelling movement has raised more than $50,000 for local causes. I’m happy to announce that the Charleston production of Listen To Your Mother will donate at least 10% of ticket sales from its May 3rd show to Family Corps.  Tickets are on sale now! Family Corps is dedicated to keeping children safe and in a stable home. They work […]
