« Frizzy hair is my passion. I had the chance to evolve in a environment where the ethnic mix declines curly, frizzy and kinky hair in thousand facets. All my experience gained during these fabolous years of technic discoveries aimed at transforming the hair, I concentrated it in Activilong. »
Yannick Cheffre, founder of M.A.I Laboratories
Born in Guadeloupe at the end of the 30’s, Yannick Cheffre grew up at her grand-mother’s side, traditional healer, who will convey all her love of the Nature and her precious plants knowledge to her.
After being trained by the best hairdressers of the 50’s in Paris, she opened her first salon at the age of 18 in Guadeloupe. Her outstanding knowledge of the hair and her mastery of new hairstyling technics, like hair relaxing that she will be the first to practice in the French West Indies, would quickly make her a reference in her island.
Noticing a complete lack of hairdressers knowing how to manipulate frizzy hair in France, and after 30 years of experience in Guadeloupe, Yannick Cheffre decided to come in metropolitan France. She opened the first salon totally dedicated to “afro hair”, Bd Rochechouart in Paris.
Frustrated by the lack of good hair products adaptated to frizzy hair, Yannick Cheffre decided to create herself its own formulas by traditional methods, enriching products of the period with oils and plants mixes. Combining Science and Nature for the first time, she revolutionized the multi-cultural hairstyling and give rises to her own hair products range and her own laboratory. She will name both Miss Antilles International as a tribute to her Caribbean roots.
