Ty McLaren and Hiro Shinn

When Ty McLaren started a summer office job six years ago, he had no idea his future co-founder was just a cubicle away.

McLaren met Hiro Shinn in 2014, when the two both worked as summer analysts at investment bank Rothschild. The pair bonded over their shared connections to Hawaii and being “hapa,” a Hawaiian word used to describe someone who is partially of Asian or Pacific Islander descent.

The friends were so simpatico, in fact, that they started a business honoring that heritage. In August 2019, McLaren and Shinn launched sustainable skin care brand Koa.

Inside Cruella’s Punk-Fantasy Makeup Looks and Ever-Changing Wigs

If Disney’s new Cruella is the origin story of a high-glamour villain—with Emma Stone slipping into the deliciously deranged character and her black-and-white wig—the catalytic scene arrives early in the film. The setting is a baroness’s estate, in the swing of a raucous costume ball. A woman has stopped by with her wild-child daughter Estella (two-toned hair hidden under a hat) to ask for money. Things don’t end well for the mother, who tumbles off a cliff with help from the baroness’s dog whistle and Dalmatians. That much is enough to set a grief-stricken girl on her path to becoming
