California-bred innovator, Myleik Teele, has revolutionized the way women address their curly hair needs. As the founder of curlBOX, an exclusive monthly subscription box full of amazing products, the stylish entrepreneur has garnered partnerships with Procter & Gamble, Carol’s Daughter, Walmart, Target and Shea Moisture.
Before creating curlBOX, the San Francisco State University graduate honed her talents for a decade in public relations. Teele worked with brands such as Calvin Klein Cosmetics, The Grammy Awards, American Idol and Nike, as well as music artists Prince, Linkin Park and Travis Barker. In 2010, Teele birthed Art of Facts Public Relations in Atlanta, Georgia. The agency grew at a rapid speed and was recognized as one of the top boutique public relations firms in the industry during its short existence.
Naturally, Teele’s zeal for building brands would lead her to create the premier hair sampling box that’s developed a cult following of savvy women. The brand has amassed over 200k Instagram followers and created the popular web series, curlBOX TV, that gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at their favorite hair care brands. Teele also led the charge in 2014 for a massive St. Jude Children’s Hospital fundraiser in cities all over the nation. The 5k walk, which brought together hundreds of multi-cultural women, raised over $20k.
Teele’s influence is also strong in her personal brand with over 50k Instagram followers and a thriving podcast series, which remains #1 on podomatic.com in the careers category. The charismatic speaker is scheduled for a TED Talk at Georgia State University in April 2015 and looks forward to connecting with you here at MyTaughtYou.com!
