Alicia Brown

Alicia Brown serves the West and Southwest territories of Michigan. She has been working in the industry for 15 years in a multitude of roles—Alicia has worked as a cosmetologist, a customer service representative, a warehouse employee, and as a sales representative. With such a big job, you would never guess that Alicia lives in a tiny house with her tiny dog named Stella.



Tina Fisher is an Inside Sales Consultant serving Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio. She’s been a part of our company’s history for nearly 20 years—she worked for Maly’s for 15 years and rejoined the family a few years later when we reopened as ManocoBlue. Working within the industry even inspired Tina to get her cosmetology license; she worked at Maly’s during the day and went to school at night!

When asked what she loves most about her job, Tina said, “I enjoy the relationship I am able to have with each and every one of my customers. I love getting calls from my former Maly’s customers. It is such a nice feeling to be able to see that 20 years later, customers are still with us.”

What we love most about Tina is her big heart. Every two weeks, she takes the time to give her 87-year-old grandmother a manicure.
