Executive Assistant to CEO & COO

“I get to come to work every day and work alongside some of the greatest pieces of art, the people here at Mielle! And then they have the nerve and audacity to trust my encouragement, genuine love, care and prayers for them to continue to soar in their very own creativity. You want to talk about inspiring?!”


Favorite Product: Rosemary Mint Strengthening Edge Gel because every style deserves a refreshingly smooth finish.

Giselle Martinez

Giselle Martinez

Brand Manager

Working at Mielle is so special to me because I came for the work, but I stay for the impact, the inspiration, the businesses, the energy, the stories, the positivity, the love, the faith....all of it just pours so beautifully and fluid from the women I work with everyday. I'm a girl's girl, so I'll never stop giving them their flowers and supporting them.”


Favorite Product: I  have fine hair with a 3a/3b curl pattern, so my cocktail of choice is Mango & Tulsi Shampoo and Conditioner because they're not thick and they smell delicious; for styling.

My inspiration comes from knowing that I work for a company that was started by a woman that desired better! It’s amazing to know that someone just like me made a choice to not settle and push past stereotypes to achieve greatness! It makes me believe that I can too!” 


Favorite Product: I love to use Rice Water Shine Mist daily to hydrate my locs. It helps keep them soft and not stiff. It also smells amazing.

“It means a lot to me as a woman to work at Mielle, knowing I’m working under someone extremely selfless, confident and inspiring. It motivates me every day to want to come to work and become wiser within the company based on the leadership of Monique and other great leaders inspiring me.”


Favorite Product: Mango and Tulsi Collection always leaves my hair so soft and easier to manage — and it smells amazing.

Marti Swan

Martinique Swan

Sales Merchandising Coordinator

Working at Mielle — especially as a woman of color — is a dream job and a blessing. Not only am I inspired by our CEO, but I'm also inspired by the women I am honored to work with everyday. I feel valued, nurtured and seen in my role at Mielle, and it is because of the amazing women here!”


Favorite Product: Pomegranate & Honey Curl Defining Mousse is the jackie of all trades. You can use it to lay your edges, for a flexi rod set, for a twist out, braid-out, wash & gos, to style ponytails, etc. — and as a bonus, it smells divine and it pairs well with other Mielle products!

Kayla Vaughn

Digital Marketing Specialist

“Working alongside a team of brilliant, creative, hard-working Black women is what keeps me inspired as I watch each woman conquer her goals, execute ideas, support one another, and trailblaze the industry. My coworkers are like my mentors. Name a better perk!”


Favorite Product: To know me is to know my edges are always going to be laid and slayed. The Pomegranate & Honey Blend Super Hold Edge Gel provides a long-lasting hold while keeping my edges shiny and healthy.

Supervisor Customer Service B2B

As a woman who has had her own hair journey ups and downs and knows that many other women share a similar experience as me, I appreciate the effort that Monique has brought forth to educate others on healthy hair care regimens and to produce effective products.”


Favorite Product: Babassu Oil & Mint Deep Conditioner works to fortify my fine, high porosity hair strands. My curls always feel well hydrated, defined and stronger after my deep conditioning regimen.

Nicole Ray Robinson

Nicole Ray Robinson

Senior Brand Director

“It is totally refreshing to work with an amazing group of talented women that not only share a passion for winning, but also putting the consumer first. Together, we are on a quest to disrupt the hair care market and win the hearts and minds of consumers. And, we are doing just that one curl at a time.”


Favorite Product: The Rosemary Mint Strengthening Leave-In Conditioner is my holy grail hair care product! I use a dab daily to keep my short curly tresses moisturized, soft and shiny. Plus, it smells amazing and it's infused with biotin which encourages healthy hair.

 LaChante

LaChante Johnson

Office Administrator

“I am blessed to work for a successful Black-founded company! I am amazed at the growth I have been able to witness since 2020. It means pushing for results and success, instilling spirit, change and action into what I am doing. Also, being a small business owner myself, I am inspired by the growth at Mielle along with driven results and impact.”

 

Favorite Product: The Rosemary Mint Scalp & Hair Strengthening Oil due to the miracle it's working on my hair! The front of my hair was a little shorter than my left side before I started using it. My hair has grown even on both sides now as I have been using it for a year now. The absolute best!

Dana Hampton

Dana Hampton

Senior Accounting Manager

I am beyond proud and extremely blessed to work at Mielle!  To see the excitement of my colleagues and the community that Mielle serves inspires me to continue striving for excellence.”

 

Favorite Product: The Rosemary Mint Oil, really the entire Rosemary Mint collection. I sweat a lot when I work out which causes my scalp to be extremely dry.  This product rejuvenates my scalp and a little goes a long way.

Kee Sherman

Kee Sherman

Creative Director

“Being the Creative Director for Mielle is an enriching, impactful and rewarding experience. Pushing visual design beyond beauty standards for an audience I closely relate to is a role I could only dream of.”

 

Favorite Product: I’m all about the braids and the Rice Water & Aloe Braid Set Foam keeps my them looking fresh for weeks.
