The Story Behind Ms. BriMani’s Hair & Beauty Supply

In May of 1999, Nicole Watson-Lam opened Ms. BriMani's Hair & Beauty Supply in the west end of Rock Island, Illinois. The name Ms. BriMani’s derived from her then two daughters, BriAnna and Imani.

Her mission was to make sure that women of color received the type of customer service they deserved, and the “know how” to care for and maintain their hair, whether it be natural, relaxed, braided, weave or wig, from someone that used the products they sold. The business expanded in 2006, adding Ms. BriMani's Unique Wig Boutique, where the ladies of Ms. BriMani's provide a genuinely, caring experience in trying on and selecting a wig or hair piece. 

After 20 years of business at the same location, in November of 2019, Ms. BriMani’s moved to a larger more centralized location, downtown in the District of Rock Island and launched her online webstore in June of 2020.

The Ms. BriMani’s experience of genuine and friendly customer service, extensive product knowledge and offering new and trending items, is what sets Ms. BriMani’s apart from the rest.

So whenever you are ready to “Do Up, Braid Up, Fix Up, or Touch Up, you know what’s up.” Ms. BriMani’s got it!
