The English language is forever changed thanks to Kayla Newman, aka Peaches Monroee, the young woman who brought us the phrase "eyebrows on fleek" thanks to her wildly popular 6-second Vine video. Despite the widespread fame of her phrase (seriously, everyone was using it and they still are), Newman wasn't directly profiting from a phrase that wouldn't exist without her. At least not until now, with the launch of On Fleek Extensions by Peaches Monroee, which she's releasing in collaboration with her mom, Denise.
Peachesonfleek.com is home to bundles, clip-ins, sew-ins, closures, frontals, tape-ins, wigs and 3D mink lashes, serving all of your extension needs.
In an interview with The FADER, Newman said the following:
"I want to make sure my brand is multicultural, because like I mentioned earlier, I could never find the right foundation for me, so I wanna make sure it's multicultural, to all people. The LGBT community—I want to make sure they're able to wear my makeup, my hair, and feel good about it. Like I said, there’s nothing like when it comes from the originator."
It's exciting to finally see the creator of such a culturally relevant phrase build a business of her own. Hopefully we'll see her launch even more products in the near future.
