Her background in science and focus on women’s health from the inside out inspired Monique to share her regimen of healthy, tailbone-length hair with the masses. She is passionate about inspiring women in business and entrepreneurship. Monique resides in Indiana with her husband and COO of Mielle, Melvin, and their two beautiful daughters, Mia and Mackenzie.
Monique created the MIELLE brand in 2014 after years of nursing her own hair back to health from color and heat damage by using her very own, homemade concoctions created from trial and error in her kitchen.
“We were inspired by the humble beginnings of brands like Apple, Google, Amazon and others because we knew that big things often start small.”
The brand came to life through her journey of restoring her hair and listening to the dedicated supporters she amassed through sharing her experience. Her supporter’s feedback was at the core of the brand’s beginnings in Monique and Melvin’s garage and is still key to this day. The brand has grown from one product to over 25 results-driven solutions that have now become a global sensation. Monique and the MIELLE brand have won countless awards and received numerous accolades for their commitment to quality hair care and beauty in only four years of existence.
“Starting an entire brand in my garage with my husband was all about being fearless. I took a leap of faith by quitting my day job and giving the MIELLE brand 100%.”
