ep. 06: Ivy Elrod
Ivy Elrod of Wilder talks about her days as a rockette, lash extensions and motherhood.
Our guest this week is Ivy Elrod – the co-owner and co-creative director of Wilder, a design shop in Nashville.
We talked to Ivy about her high-low-indie mix of favorite beauty products, how to maintain your eyelash extensions (hint: don't pull them out), and whether Mason Pearson hairbrushes are actually worth the price. We also talked to Ivy about how becoming a mother – and how her relationship with her own mother – impacted her self-image.
