unnamedWhere did you grow up?

I was born in Haiti and grew up in East Orange, NJ.

What do you want to make sure your audience knows?

-About you?

I am a lover of pretty things, advocate for vegetables and like to be crafty when I find the time.

About your brand?

Wonder Curl strives to make the world a better place by giving our customers consistently great hair days. Because great hair days make everything better!

What made you decide to begin?

I needed to make the perfect hair gel for my thick, curly hair that loved to frizz. None of the products on the market were able to tame the frizz and so I created the Get Set Hair Jelly and a business was born.


What is the motto of your brand?

We empower anyone with curly hair to wear their hair in its natural state with confidence.

Brief background/ synopsis on your brand

Wonder Curl started over 6 years ago to help women and men with curly hair by creating moisturizing and defining products. We have streamlined the styling process to only needing 2 products (one moisturizer & one styler) to get great hair for days!


What is the most rewarding part of your career?

Most rewarding is when I get to meet women who use the products and hear about how Wonder Curl has helped them to achieve moisturized and defined curls.

Least rewarding?

Least rewarding is having to reconcile my bank statements.

Who depends on your success? Who are you doing this for besides yourself?

I’m doing this for all the curlies out there who need great products to help them show off their hair.

If you weren’t in your field what would you be doing?

I’d be a blogger and a housewife. If I can’t be the CEO of my business, then I’d be the CEO of my home and share parts of that experience with others.


What is going to be your legacy?

At the end of the day, I want every woman to feel like they can do what they have their minds set out to do, whether it is living a healthy lifestyle or running their own business, it can be within their reach.

Who is the rock behind your empire?

I am a one-woman show, however, my customers are why I do this. I have some days when I want to quit and then I’ll get an email from someone telling me how no other products do for her what mine can and all is right with the world again.


What projects do you have coming up? What should we be looking out for?

I’m excited that Wonder Curl will be adding a clarifying shampoo bar for the holiday season that uses activated charcoal to really clean product buildup.
