Nickie Nou

Founder of Curls Dynasty

Instagram @curlsdynasty


BIO

Curls Dynasty was founded in 2014 by healthy hair and body enthusiast, Nickie Nougaisse.

After several disheartening experiences on her own haircare journey, Nickie decided to transition

to natural hair, during which she was diligent in identifying the healthiest chemical-free products

and ingredients to help revive her hair.


On her new hair journey, Nickie quickly became a tutorial and product junkie, but was continuously disappointed by the products that filled her cabinets. Taking matters into her own hands, she soon began mixing her own products in her kitchen and immediately experienced positive results.


Excited and passionate about her new discoveries, Nickie found herself constantly giving tips and providing encouragement to others on their own healthy hair journeys. She has since been sharing her collection of high quality hair care products with naturals globally, changing the world one curl at a time!


Born and raised in beautiful Haiti until the age of 13, Nickie migrated to the USA, chasing the American dream. The journey was arduous, she experienced and overcame many obstacles such as language barriers, racism and homelessness. Nickie currently lives in South Florida with her family. She has degrees in Psychology, Criminal Justice, Child Delinquency and Protection. She has been very fortunate to serve as advocate, investigator, protector in her career working with women and children survivors of abuse.


She is happy to be able to continue to love and support others through Curls Dynasty. Her hope is to inspire, motivate, and elevate alongside all of those who are part of this family that the Dynasty is.

Monica Sarduy

VP of Sales & Marketing - X-1FBO

President of Women's Chamber of Commerce Miami-Dade County

Instagram @wccmiami


BIO

Monica Sarduy began her career in 2006 as a Key Accounts Advertising Sales Coordinator for the Miami Herald. What she enjoyed most was the development facets of the position where she was able to assist key account managers with building and customizing proposals and presentations.


This newly developed inclination led Monica to explore different areas outside the field of sales and into her first management position for a Coral Gables Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine. During her tenure at the practice, she doubled the monthly revenues in just a few short months.


In 2016, she entered into the commercial property management world as Founder of BizNest, a new spin on traditional co-working spaces. BizNest became a child-friendly shared space community of working moms (mompreneurs).


During BizNest’s rebranding phase, her husband discovered at the 11th hour that he had drawn an opponent in his judicial race. Always up for a challenge in a new arena, Monica Sarduy decided to roll up her sleeves as the campaign’s manager and deputy treasurer. She organized a successful campaign in only 3 months which led to her husband’s successful re-election.


In June of 2018 Monica accepted a Director of Sales & Marketing for GOA-TECH. In 2021, she was recruited as VP of Sales & Marketing for X-1FBO an aviation logistics software company.

Danie Spikes

Certified Relationship Coach, TEDX Speaker, Award-Winning Business Woman

CEO @belovedbox @hellobeauteorg

Instagram @lovecoachdanispikes

Danie describes her approach to coaching as “an honest, comedic spoonful of sugar that you didn’t know that you needed but you’re grateful that you had.” She melds candor with love and a touch of humor to find, highlight, and cultivate the greatness and potential that already exists within each of her clients.


Danie’s toughest moments are what allow her to show up for her clients, customers, and community—and in everything she does, she seeks to empower others to do the same.


“Everything I do is in service of others. Every single thing I do, I was born to do.”


Danie Spikes is a certified professional relationship coach, public speaker, and award-winning businesswoman. As CEO of Beloved Inc., Danie approaches every business and project as an opportunity to fulfill the basic needs and desires most humans share: self-love, fulfilling relationships, confidence, and healing.


This approach has led her to create a number of businesses. BeLoved Box, a fragrance house and body care brand she leads with her husband, Stephen, started with an all-natural home remedy for his eczema, and can now be found in hotels around the world. Luv and Lavender began as a birthday celebration and has grown into a one-day retreat for women who may not have a whole week to take a vacation, but still need to carve out time for self-care. As CEO of a thriving beauty brand, Danie created Hello Beauty to bring together a community of other women in the industry, especially those early in their journeys, to support, encourage, and learn from one another.
