For this week's throwback show we are re-visiting a very important topic to AMB and one that affects all woman. Host Patty Schmucker interviews Brigid Cox with Cut it Out, a Beauty Community Against Domestic Abuse. They discuss the ways domestic violence has and still is shaping our society and how we can help those affected (which is all of us) and most importantly, how to recognize it in the first place.⠀

That the intimate relationship within the salon can create a space for private and safe dialogue, which can help identify a possible victim.

From the women who aren’t afraid to stand up for what’s right, We Thank-you ❤️
Don't miss this week's Throwback to the RadioAMB interview of Phil Horvath!⠀⠀
In October of 2016, Ratner Companies, the parent of @haircuttery @bubblessalons @saloncielo & Spa, and Salon Plaza, hired a new President and COO. In the second of a 2-part interview on Ratner, Patty Schmucker introduces him to her Radio AMB audience. Ladies and Gentlemen, meet Phil Horvath.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
So who is the ideal head of a company as big as Ratner? He’s a man who understands the business (Phil grew up in the industry and loves the energy); a man with a desire to evolve the idea of beauty (Phil has a business degree); and a man who never misses an opportunity to push the conversation forward. Phil Horvath knows people, knows the industry, and shares the secret of success: Listen, encourage experience, and discover the ultimate pathway to prosperity.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
Tune in to hear how Phil plans to lead his 12,000 employees and how he plans to help everyone to grow professionally and financially. Only on AmericanMadeBeauty.com ⠀⠀
Before Fenty stepped up to plate with foundations for women of all colors there was @imancosmetics 🤩 When we think of Wonder Women trailblazers of the beauty world, we think of Iman Abdulmajid founder and CEO of Iman Cosmetics. As a model she would walk on set with makeup artists that lacked a foundation to match her deep skin tone, she sought to change that. In an industry that sometimes disregarded women of color, brands like @huenoir @fentybeauty & Iman Cosmetics embrace women in all their beautiful shades. To our warrior women of the beauty world we Thank-you 👏from AmericanMadeBeauty.com

The Origin of the Family Haircut. An Interview with @dratner19 of @haircuttery ✂️ Listen to hear about Dennis Ratner’s family history, how his dad started a salon in 1936, how Dennis wasn’t a good student and relatively aimless until his dad told him he had to get a profession. He got his license, studied in New York with top hair cutters, and by 19 opened his first salon. Inspired by Vidal Sassoon and his concept of a unisex salon and unisex cuts, Dennis went out to dinner. And, a napkin later, the rest is history.

Makeup artist’s create the BEST makeup, and we think we know why. When you’re a super successful MUA like @patmcgrathreal you’ve done it all. From the editorial to the avant-garde. Packed with bags of makeup and hundreds of brushes the expertise is refined and if you’re lucky honed like Pat McGrath who has created a line of highly coveted makeup collections that sell out immediately. It takes hard work, and dedication to bring highly pigmented artistic makeup to the masses, but she does. Thankyou for inspiring creativity in our everyday makeup. We would love❤️ to have her on our Beauty Podcast RadioAMB. Let her know you’d love to hear her story too 😉
