2019 is over halfway done, but #BlackGirlMagic is still going full throttle! Black and Brown Women everywhere are proving themselves to be innovators, trendsetters, and the creators of cool.Thus being the CEO of a multimillion dollar hair care empire falls right in line with the mantra, “Black Women can do it all!” Kontrol Magazine and HeyMikeyATL chopped it up with, Miko Branch, co-founder and CEO of the game changing hair care line, Miss Jessie’s!

When it comes to the creme de la creme of natural hair care products, Miss Jessie’s truly sets the bar. The secret behind this amazing line is none other than the sisterly bond between Miko, and her late sister, Tati. “She was such an amazing woman, and I miss her every who poured her heart into our company…we both wanted products that catered to people with all types of hair and curl patterns…[Miss Jessie’s] it’s the legacy of our sisterhood and I’m blessed to have it.” The Black hair care industry churns out billions of dollars each year; and as one of the premium companies at the forefront, Miss Jessie’s prides itself on a wide array of products. They have products that soften, repair, condition, moisturize, treat, and encourages hair growth. The trick and fun part is finding what combination of products works with your hair or curl pattern. “We truly have something for everyone no matter what kind of hair you have…we’ve taken into consideration that everything does not work for everyone, but none of our products will damage your hair. They work well, smell great, and get the job done!” Miko states.

As aforementioned, Miss Jessie’s has products for everyone, but our personal favorites include the Baby Buttercreme, Coily Custard, Sweetback Treatment, and Leave-In Condish. However, products primarily targeting men have been lacking. Data, beauty, and hair trends show that men are taking better care of their hair and want products to assist in its daily maintenance. Thankfully, the hair gods have heard our prayers and in 2020 we will see new additions to the Miss Jessie’s family as Miko reveals a forthcoming men’s hair care line! “2019 has been really good to us, and 2020 will be even better! In the next year you can expect to see new products from us, especially those geared towards men. We have heard a growing male customer base telling us they want products for their hair and beards so you can expect to see that very soon.” Men’s grooming and care is the new frontier for the hair and beauty industries. Beard oils, balms, and natural hair care products are all the rave and we are here for it!

Miss Jessie’s is here to stay and with Miko Branch at its helm we are more than certain it is here to stay. 2020 just cannot come fast enough. In the meantime you can catch your own Miss Jessie’s products at your local Wal-Mart, Target, and most local beauty supply stores. They are literally everywhere, with something for everyone! You can also catch them at the next Bronner Bros. Beauty Show on February 8-10, 2020, in Atlanta, Georgia. “We are blessed to have so many people who believe in us and our products. There really is no such thing as bad or unmanageable hair. Our products work for you because we work for you, and it’s something I love getting to do everyday.”

Hey Mikey!

WHO AM I? That’s probably what you’re thinking? It’s simple I’m this generation’s “Dear Abby!” I was raised in the Fourth Ward of Atlanta, educated in the School of Hard Knocks, and rescued by the concrete and steel of New York City. Life at best will always be bittersweet. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be. I’d prefer to be on your sweeter side. Everyone needs a listening ear, extra shoulder, and open arms when life gets rough. I’m your new best friend, whe it all goes south remember I’m a mouse click or tweet away. Hang in there kids, you’re gonna love kickin’ it with me!!! -MIKEY
