Level Beauty Group, led by beauty industry professionals Kenny Kahn and Brian Anderson, launches Beauty & Pin-Ups, a multidimensional brand and luxury haircare collection that celebrates the confident, “take-me-as-I-am” gal.
“Recently, we’ve heard many beauty-industry insiders say that the beauty industry is stagnated, boring and lifeless, and that they long for the ‘good old days,’” Kahn, chief executive officer, Level Beauty Group, says. “We fell in love with Beauty & Pin-Ups because we saw multidimensional brand opportunities with haircare, cosmetics, fashion, music and technology. Beauty & Pin-Ups will “wow” stylists and salon owners with inspiring experiences that will literally change the way the beauty industry operates.”
Honored by Harvard Business School for his business acumen, including the global turnaround and rebranding of Muzak, Kahn’s companies have been featured in The New York Times, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, CNN and NBC Nightly News, as well as on the award-winning television series, ‘Undercover Boss.’
Anderson started his career with Columbia Beauty Supply where he helped the company grow into a $60 million business. Under his leadership, Columbia Beauty Supply was one of the largest distributors of L’Oreal products, which acquired the company in 2008.
Beauty & Pin-Ups recently launched its haircare collection of seven products including two shampoos, a leave-in conditioner and several styling products. Beauty & Pin-Ups plans to expand the brand with upcoming launches including an essential cosmetic line and a new iron, both of which will debut in this year.
