Established and organized by River Fronczak of the Fronczak Group in 2010, CCC is an event series geared to promote healthy hair care through tips, brand exposure, education and live styling demonstrations.  The signature event blends the sweetness of cupcakes and invigorating aroma of coffee to help attendees digest healthy hair discourse.  Members of the 2012 organizing committee were River, her husband and business partner William Fronczak, Stacey Hathaway, Lisa Smith and Jarita Williams.

In 2004 Titi and Miko Branch created and named their salon and natural hair product line after their beloved, late grandmother Miss Jessie.  Today Miss Jessie’s products are well-known throughout the hair care industry and are considered the leader in kinks, curly hair and waves…period.  They have been featured in numerous popular publications including O (The Oprah Magazine), Allure, Essence, Lucky, Marie Claire, WWD and Elle, in addition to appearing on NBC’s “The Today Show.”
