Deandrea "Grim" Nesbitt
Deandrea "Grim" Nesbitt is the creator of M.A.D.E by Grim. Born in Brooklyn, NY and resided in Southside Jamaica Queens, she started her love for hair at the young age of 14 years old, learning how to style her hair, as well as friends and family members.
After attending her two year college and graduating with an Associates in Business Administration, she then went on to study cosmetology at Brooklyn's Hair Design Institute, graduating in February 2014. It was there she learned her skills in extensions, facial care and nail services. Her education and networking skills would pave the way for her passion and love for the beauty industry.
Later that year she continued on with her dreams and became a licensed professional, holding an Cosmetology license issued under the state of NY. While working in NYC Flatiron District as a hairstylist for the Dry Bar, Deandrea grew her skill set and knowledge on handling different hair textures and styles within the salon, 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.
Deandrea (Grim) 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.
Continuing her education at Troy University for her Bachelors degree in Art Photography & Entrepreneurship, she took the name "M.A.D.E by Grim" and made it an official licensed business under the State of Alabama in 2016. The acronym in M.A.D.E stands for "My Aspiration to Deliver Excellence", as this is the mission behind every customer's experience. While continuing to work on her craft & self branding, 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.
