This week, we’re chatting with founder of MMSMITH.CO– a one-stop-shop platform that believes in the importance of haircare, and provides the foundational tips and tricks to enhance and simplify beauty routines. Brooklyn-based beauty expert Mickīēla’s career in hair aesthetics spans for over a decade and counting.

From earliest beauty memories, to daily hair routines and rituals, we get intimate with the talent. Keep reading for more Mickīela, and tune in to her upcoming Live session on Tuesday, November 30th at 7pm EST for Hair Tool Logic: the politics and technicals of what goes behind effortlessly styling your hair with the aid of hair tools.

Tell us about MMSmithco, what inspired the platform?

MMSMITHCO was inspired through information gaps, interest, including simplified and intentional services I’ve always sought in the world of beauty, exclusively surrounding hair.

The site started as a beauty tech blog, then an e-commerce site for personal clients, to additional beauty essentials, and information added to be made accessible on one platform, the result of mmsmithco.

Do you have a daily hair routine? If so, walk us through it. 

Massaging my scalp, followed by an occasional exfoliation, it’s my therapy. 

Earliest beauty memory or ritual?

Oiling my hair is one.

Is there one recurring piece of advice you find yourself giving clients?

Step by step, no assumptions; embrace your hair experiences. 

Any do’s and don’ts when it comes to using tools in hair styling?

Understanding the style you’re achieving will help guide you in your hair tool selection; choose quality, monitor your thermal use, keep your tools clean, and don’t forget to unplug them before leaving the house! 

What’s the hardest thing about maintenance when it comes to hair care?

If you’re referring to your regimen as “hard,” I’d encourage you to revise it; however, manipulated styles opposite from the natural hair texture can require higher maintenance. In this case proper style preparation is essential; your go-to product will depend on your regimen; many of the products are multi-use, so all are equal within your appropriate recommendations and options. 

True or false: all beauty regimens can only be achieved through trial and error?

Trials are a part of the process, and they can also be avoidable; there are different types of errors.

When you calculate the effectiveness of your hair investment, you attempt to get closer to your ideal regimen with less chance of error and or more understanding of your essentials. 

What’s one thing you hope people take away from the platform?

Individualism and community; factors in a positive hair-health experience. 

Why is hair care vital to you personally?

Hair-health fosters my introductions to health-wellness.

Worst personal haircare experience you’ve learned from?

There’s something to take away from all of our beauty encounters. 

I experienced hair loss through an improper individual braid extension process as an adolescent; I also shared my healthiest hair through the same style in that time; This began my approach in applying the cause-effect cycle and method in my practice, another extension of professional analysis. 

What are the benefits of personal hair analysis?

An analysis allows you to gain further insight into the most effective elements and steps to take in your regimen.

Which hair styling tools are you currently enjoying?

Magnetic and automatic tool features! 

What’s the best beauty advice you’ve ever received?

The advice I’ve received throughout my craft was less literal, and most times were through my beauty experiences, both spiritual and physical. 

Are we witnessing a beauty revolution?

Yes, and the beauty industry is constantly evolving. My focus is viewing how holistic approaches and technology play an influence.
