SheerLuxe Success Stories: Maria Hatzistefanis, Rodial Founder

Ironically, it was getting fired from her previous job that pushed Maria Hatzistefanis into creating her own brand. Fast forward nearly two decades and the entrepreneur owns three beauty businesses – Nip + Fab, Nip + Man, and the world-renowned Rodial – is an inspirational speaker, a bestselling author, and a Patron of the British Fashion Council.

An Instagram star in her own right, Maria has won a legion of celebrity endorsers – including the oh-so influential Kardashian/Jenner clan.

Maria has created some of the most blogged-about cult beauty products of the last decade, from her bestselling ‘Dragon’s Blood’ to ‘Snake Serum’ Rodial ranges, all the while still overseeing her three brands, which now have a presence in over 35 countries worldwide.
Maria shares:

  • Why getting fired can be a good thing. 
  • How to grow your social media following.
  • Why snakes made a campaign go viral.
  • The power of the million dollar influencers 
  • Why you should never stop hustling
