Titi & Miko Branch, the Co-Founders of Miss Jessie’s are two bold and beautiful businesswomen who have led the charge for African-American and all women to embrace the hair texture they were born with. And for over ten years, they have turned a dream into a multi-million dollar business, creating a new language around hair (curly puddings and all) along the way. They’ve built a solid brand, sold now in Target, and continue to break down barriers in the industry.
So just how did they do it? How did they have the courage to create a product, the savvy to market it and end up changing the hair game for ethnic brands for the next century? They will share their secrets of success while being interviewed by Tia Williams, Founder of Shakeyourbeauty.comand Co-Founder of The Fly Cut. Tia is a renowned beauty editor (Glamour, Lucky,Essence.com) and best-selling author (It Chicks, The Accidental Diva and Sixteen Candles). She was one of the first African-American beauty bloggers to enter the game, carving out a niche with her insightful and hilarious take on all things beautiful and bold. These modern-day beauty industry game changers will share what it’s really like to step out on faith, act on filling a need that no one else was servicing, build a successful brand, and never take no for an answer when it comes to pursuing their passion. Very few seats left, so register today. Hope to see you there!
