Our Founder & CEO

post imageMonique Smith-Andrews is the founder of Monique’s Techniques, a full service salon and the Mohair Foundation, a nonprofit charity, servicing individuals suffering from hair loss as a result of various medical conditions such as Cancer, Alopecia and Lupus. Monique created this organization as her mother battled cancer. It was difficult for Monique to see her mother struggle with the effects of hair loss with no viable options. So, she began researching alternatives to wigs and began her journey into the non-surgical hair replacement industry.

A native of Bayonne, New Jersey, she began her career over 30 years ago. Graduating from Natural Motion Beauty School in 1983, she honed her skills and became a highly sought after master stylist and makeup artist. In 1988, Monique’s Techniques Salon was opened. Monique managed entrepreneurship and the growing demands of a diverse range of clientele. Monique provided hair styling and hair care treatments for celebrity, sports and political clients throughout her journey.
