MissRo here! Well, we’ve learned about most of the products in the Mixed Chicks line. How about learning about the Founders behind the brand, Wendi Levy and Kim Etherdge.
Wendi and Kim, two “mixed chicks”, created this product line because they needed it. Then, something happened! Friends and family started encouraging them to package it, and soon they had a full blown business running out of the garage. After a little door to door hustling, a few celebrity endorsements, and a ton of online customer support, MIXED CHICKS is now sold worldwide!
*My name and hometown?
Wendi Levy, Atlantic City, NJ
Kim Etheredge, Culver City, CA
*My start in life was to do this?
Wendi – I was a school teacher… (math and p.e.)
Kim – Just be the best person I could be.
*The path I took towards cosmetics was driven by this?
Wendi – By a personal need. I was tired of mixing and matching products for straight or coarse hair.
Kim – There really were no products designed for my specific hair type.
*I want all women to know this about themselves?
Wendi – Their smile is their best accessory.
Kim – You don’t have to be anyone but yourself.
*My goal is to bring each user of my products this?
Wendi – I want each of my users to embrace their curls instead of battle them.
Kim – Bring an end to their hair struggle.
*I believe in all of my products, but if I could urge each woman to try this one (pick your favorite) I would say?
Wendi & Kim – Mixed Chicks leave-in conditioner. Now one simple step to define and control your curls at little cost and no time.
*Style influences vary, I would say my style is most like this?
Wendi – Casual, comfortable, with a slight hippie influence.
Kim – Girl next door, but dressed up a little!
*I started my line because I couldn’t find this?
Wendi – a single styling product that could moisturize, define, and defrizz in one stelp.
Kim – “One” product to help my combination hair.
*I deliver this with each product?
Wendi – Good feelings.
Kim – A network where people can express themselves, discuss their hair issues, and find comfort in knowing a product was designed specifically for them.
*When I see a women make this mistake I cringe?
Wendi – Women that prefer long hair over healthy hair. When I see 2 or 3 inches of dry, dead, crispy hair.
Kim – Curly hair that is so hard and crunchy it breaks off when you touch it.
*My products care about the way you look like no one else’s because of this?
Wendi – Because it is the only product designed for “us” and by “us”. The multi-cultural revolution has begun.
Kim – They allow you to look good with no effect or struggle so you are able to emphasize on the other areas in your life that make you beautiful.
*Lastly, if I were at a bar I’d order this?
Wendi – Red wine or a dirty martini if I’m feeling crazy.
Kim – “Mixed” cocktail ;).
*True or False, I’m going to tell you when there’s spinach between your teeth?
Wendi – True
Kim – I always will
Well, there you have it! Thanks Wendi and Kim!
