About Giell.com - Mannequins & Beauty School Supplies
Giell – the business brainchild of Marcel Bouffard and Joanne Lampron – was established in 2006. After many years of successfully running ecommerce stores through Ebay and Amazon platforms, Marcel and Joanne realized that there was a large gap in the cosmetology market – one that they were servicing quite well on a small scale. Soaring sales, loyal customers, and a growing list of products presented the perfect opportunity for these two great entrepreneurs to consolidate efforts, and create one incredible brand. With a focus on servicing the cosmetology industry as a whole, through one customer-centric portal, Giell.com was born!
Giell is dedicated to an unwavering effort to provide THE BEST service, products, and overall purchase experience to its loyal customers. In an ever-expanding world of ecommerce, buyers have the opportunity to browse, buy, and interact with brands all over the globe. Unfortunately, navigating this virtual world within the cosmetology industry can prove difficult for professionals. Product quality, timely delivery, customer service, and reliable return/exchange policies, are not always guaranteed. With Giell however, this is EXACTLY what their customers can expect.
Giell has taken the opportunity to reinvent how cosmetology students, salons, professionals, and beauty enthusiasts explore, purchase and engage with their products and service company. Through continual efforts to present the latest and best products available, education and tutorial tools, consumer outreach and feedback, Giell.com continues to expand and exceed industry expectations.
In 2006, Joanne & Marcel decided to convert their garage into a mini warehouse and become a real business. Nothing was more exciting than realizing their lifelong dream of becoming entrepreneurs.
In 2010, their operations moved to a 5,000 square foot warehouse in Flowery Branch, GA, not far from their home. Giell Beauty Supply had new headquarters and a focus on servicing the cosmetology industry as a whole.
Mannequins & Beauty Schools
After successfully launching their own line of mannequins in 2012, Giell began specializing in cosmetology mannequin heads and education related products. They adopted a new logo and Giell Beauty Supply became Giell Mannequins & Beauty School Supplies.
