Dylan Mullan is the founder of Happy Skin Co, the highest-rated at-home IPL hair removal handset worldwide.
Years ago, one wouldn't think that Dylan would be the creator of such revolutionary devices as he yearned to be a lawyer. It wasn't until he started taking classes at the university that he realized the "Legal lifestyle" wasn't for him.
Once Dylan came to that realization, he set out to be an actor, took an acting course, and spent five years as a professional actor. Again, Dylan found himself wanting more. He wanted to accomplish things that hadn't been done before and he knew acting wasn't going to get him there. After much thought, Dylan came to the conclusion that he was going to revolutionize the Beauty industry. So he and his partner set out to do just that.
The beauty industry was already saturated with a lot of products, making it difficult for Dylan and his partner to set themselves apart. During the research process, Dylan noticed something interesting. He found out that professional hair removal procedures were extremely expensive. And this gave him a great idea.
Over the course of 3 months, Dylan and his partner worked effortlessly building a product that would solve that problem, and they did! With the help of his partner, some strategic decisions, lots of hard work, and valuable market research, Dylan was able to grow his at-home hair removal business from $0 to $20 million in just two years and become the notable individual he is today.
