Behind The Face is a podcast for women entrepreneurs to discuss all things business and beauty. Our goal is to create a space for an open, honest discussion on women’s empowerment and learning how to keep yourself open to life’s little “sparks”. We dive into stories of struggle, inspiration, and motivation that make up the path to success — It’s like chatting with your most boss girlfriends and getting the lowdown on what it took to really get there.
Join us each week for a fun and insightful conversation with powerful women, the journeys they took to own their successes, and the beauty tips that make them feel their most confident self. Behind the Face is hosted and created by Ana B with producer and audio mixer Julia at MAB studios in Tysons Corner, Virginia.
