Who we are
Founded by sisters Miko and Titi Branch, Miss Jessie's products took the curly hair market by storm in 2004! Armed with curly hair product development from their salon/workshop, they were able to perfect their curly hair product's performance. Known for its expertise in styling curly, kinky, and wavy hair of all types and textures, Miss Jessie's Salon became the go-to place for curly hair solutions.
By way of dealing with their customers' everyday curly hair care needs they stumbled upon a problem: there were simply no products on the market that catered to their clientele's hair type. "There wasn't a lot to work with, and finally we realized that we wouldn't get that perfect solution unless we created it ourselves." Recognizing a valuable opportunity to provide for this niche market, Titi and Miko, inspired by their grandmother's can-do attitude decided to perfect their own curly hair product creations and Miss Jessie's products were born.
The inspiration behind Miss Jessie's (and the source of the brand's name) came from their paternal grandmother: the no-nonsense Miss Jessie Mae Branch. When they were children, Miss Jessie would concoct all sorts of mixtures and formulas at her kitchen table to help tame and style her grand daughter's wild curly hair.
Who is Miss Jessie?
Miss Jessie was the paternal grandmother of Miko and Titi Branch. A proud southern matriarch, Miss Jessie was the most "tell- it- like- it- is" woman her family ever knew. Jessie Branch taught from her kitchen table as she fed delicious food that nourished the mind, body, and soul. Miss Jessie used to whip up an egg and mayonnaise treatment when her granddaughters complained about their curly natural hair. Many of her preparations included remedies for hair and beauty which she shared with her whole family. Jessie Mae Branch passed away on December 21, 2001. She would have been so proud to know that her strength and tenacity inspired her girls to carve out a niche to help women with many of their natural hair and life challenges.
