Remembering Titi Branch
December 15, 2014

image

I am still in disbelief, shocked and saddened. When asked “where will I be Chanel when you are accepting an award in 5 years?” My response was “We will be in Paris, so I can buy you a CHANEL outfit.” Titi was a beautiful soul, very supportive and always took the time to talk to me no matter how rigorous her schedule was.

To the world she was the co-founder of Miss Jessie’s the first hair care to hit shelves in Target, a great inspiration and a mentor along with her sister Miko. They will forever be known as pioneers who cater to natural hair with kinks, coils and curls. The company was named after their grandmother who played a powerful role in their lives. Remembering you ALWAYS. YOU ARE LOVED!

At the age of 45, we say goodbye to a beautiful, smart, business savy and arduous woman. Rest In Paradise Titi Branch thanks for all of your encouraging words the last time we spoke. You never know what someone is going through. People are hurting in silence. Check on your love ones often, show them appreciation and give them hugs. Depression is real. Thank you for setting an example for me to strive towards, being a great mentor and most importantly for believing in me. A smile can mask so much. A life well lived. I will celebrate your life because you played such an imperative role in mine.

Chanel Speedy: What do you envision yourself doing in 10 years?

Lucky’s Hair Obsession: In ten years I will have opened up a minimum of 3 beauty lounges. The locations will be New York, Atlanta and South Carolina.

Chanel Speedy: Nice yes 3 is a good number not just because it is my favorite number (shameless plug) lol but it is very obtainable goal within a ten year span.

Chanel Speedy: What do you consider your strengths? Your weaknesses?

Lucky’s Hair Obsession: My strength is my family. Looking at them daily pushes me to grind harder. My weakness is wanting to help everyone knowing that I can’t. However I’m working on a project to assist in that area as well.

Chanel Speedy: It is always great to give back. You can’t help everyone but always remember to #StartSmall and help when you can.

Chanel Speedy: Tell us the story behind your inspiration or of a person who inspires you.

Lucky’s Hair Obsession: My grandfather inspired me. He said baby you can be whatever you want to be in life as long as you are consistent. Consistency is key. He always held me on the highest pedestal. When I was 19 and worked for a financial institution as a teller my grandfather would tell people I owned the bank and he meant every word he said lol. One day I read something that stated “Let your passion be your paycheck” and from that day forth I started branding. I’m sad that my grandfather is not here today to see how far I have become, but I know he is watching down and telling everyone in heaven yes yes she owns Lucky’s Hair Obsession. (Tears seriously) I miss that man.

Chanel Speedy: That just touched me I am a G so don’t look at me any different when I tell you I just shed a tear. It was a real thug cry think of how Jody (Tyrese) was crying in Baby Boy before Mel (Ving Rhames) gave him the pep talk and took the gun. Yes I had to give a visual one of my specialties. But on a serious note I play all day. There are people who are placed in our life for us to value, motivational tools and examples of leadership. He seemed as if he was so sweet, caring and loving. We have a connection because that is what my grandmother was to me she was my biggest cheerleader. You couldn’t say anything about her first grand or you would get the business.

I wish you all the best in your present and future endeavors. Keep striving to complete everything you are set out to do in this world. Curtsy.
