The Owner & Brand
Deandrea "Grim" Nesbitt was born and raised in Brooklyn and Queens, NY. While working in NYC Flatiron District she obtained her NY State Cosmetology License. She spent that time growing her skill set and knowledge on handling different hair textures and styles, as well as teaching herself how to create custom wig units and apply makeup. This opportunity and location allowed for Deandrea to build a separate business, offering services to her clients in their high rise apartments and business offices.
At an early start in her career Deandrea has worked on models during NYC Fashion Week as an hair stylist, while also having the pleasure of styling actress Mia Kurshner, as well as model Mercedes Sorte. A true hustler filled with ambition, the grind didn't stop, even during pregnancy, where she continued to make strides in building clientele and partnerships throughout the city. In April of 2015, Deandrea gave birth to her son Jax and officially left the salon and moved forward with her travel business and services, shortly relocating south.
M.A.D.E by Grim LLC stands for the key elements one needs to succeed: Motivation, Attitude, Determination and Energy. While working under her business, Deandrea has had her work featured by High End makeup companies: Lashed Cosmetics, Milani Cosmetics, Black Opal, Black Radiance, Stilla, Buxom Cosmetics, Moira Cosmetics, Suva Beauty and more, along with women empowerment groups within the African American beauty community. Deandrea has also partnered with hair companies for Model reviews and promotional ads: Nadula Hair, UNice Hair. These opportunities is what helped fuel M.A.D.E by Grim into products.
