The best way to use Olaplex with JuE Wong

How do you keep yourself motivated?

I keep myself motivated by planning ahead. I have a "to-do" list in my head or sometimes I write them down. I get a sense of accomplishment as I check off all the things I am completing. I also love planning for vacation days and I made it a point to do something totally out of my comfort zone every 2 years or so. My last "adventure" was in 2019 where I completed 300 miles of the CaminoDe Santiago via Portugal with my boyfriend in 12 days. And true to my motivationtechnique, I broke the walk up with a day of R&R in Porto! 

What's one quote you live by?

Professionally: Build a team so strong that no one can point out the leader. 

Personally: Regrets in life are never about failures but about things you wanted to doand never did. 

How does it feel to be a female CEO for one of the biggest brands in the beauty industry? 

I feel very fortunate and I see leading as a privilege. I believe authority may be given because of my role but respect and trust have to be earned. As CEO at Olaplex, it gives me the opportunity to amplify our reach and influence for good. At Olaplex ourmission is to do well and do good. This is where you will see us giving back to our professional community by way of scholarships and giving back to the environment by mitigating our carbon footprint by not having secondary boxes wherever possible. 

What advice do you have for women wanting to work in business?

  • Play to your strengths and know what you are up against.  
  • Learn from your past and look ahead and around corners.  
  • Bring people along and pay it forward.  
  • Put your team before yourself and you will find yourself winning every time!

As a beauty fanatic I'm always on the lookout to try and experiment with new products! I’ve been writing about everything beauty for over 3 years and specialise in skincare so have plenty of tips and tricks to help put blemishes at bay and get your complexion glowing. Whilst being a content writer at LOOKFANTASTIC I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with incredible brands including Tom Ford, Dolce & Gabbana and La Mer, taking my understanding of the industry to the next level. In the past I’ve been a freelance makeup artist and have collaborated with brands including NYX and Revolution Beauty on a personal level, sharing my makeup creations for the world to see. My ride or die brands have to be PIXI, Laura Mercier and Bobbi Brown and I can’t live without my trusty MAC Velvet Teddy!
