When London born beauty entrepreneur Jamelia Donaldson told naturalistas across Europe, “The hunt is over”, she wasn’t joking. The founder and CEO of Treasure Tress, has been able to draw on her personal experiences and knowledge to provide an impeccable hair care service which equips young girls and women across Europe and the Middle East with quality products and tools to care for their natural hair through her monthly subscription box service.

Beyond their monthly boxes, TreasureTress is committed to creating safe spaces, experiences and events for black and mixed-race women to bond on topics starting with hair, extending to personal development and connectivity/networking.

Noticing a need for events and experiences specifically for teens, Jamelia conceptualised The Teen Experience which she has brought to life in collaboration with Hair Is Simba and a group of incredible women – The Teen Experience is a series of personal development workshops for teen girls 12-19years old. Through The Teen Experience, teens are able to cover topics from self-esteem, beauty standards, relationships, yoga and wellness through influencer led workshops.

Our Founder Danielle McDonald spoke with Jamelia about travelling, managing a team, her future business growth plans, mentorship and more.
