We love storyboarding and researching new and exciting video ideas, turning on the camera and sitting down to create educational + entertaining videos together!

Manes by Mell was created back in April of 2018 by sisters Mell and Amanda Guido. Together, Mell and Amanda have created an online community of over 1 million people with curly/textured hair to come together and learn more about their hair.
Ultimately, Manes by Mell was created as an outlet for both sisters to share their passions for helping others learn to embrace their curls and most importantly have a good laugh.

About Your Star,
I’m Mell, you can consider me Your Mane Girl. I’m a curly hair expert sharing my knowledge about hair care and beauty. My pages are an outlet for people to have a laugh, learn something new, and feel connected to the real me!
Growing up with curls myself, I learned to embrace the hair I have and to not just love it, but nurture it.
Now, I’m a curl expert and a hair care professional with a passion to share my knowledge about curls outside the salon to people around the world on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube through entertaining education all while having fun with it!
Online, I am known as “Manes by Mell,” where I have a very large social media reach with followers who are just as passionate about embracing natural curly hair as I am.
Your Co-Host, Amanda
My name is Amanda Guido, known online as Manes by Mell’s ‘seester’. Growing up I always had a passion for being creative with video and photography.
But beyond that, as someone with naturally curly, or as I always called it, frizzy hair, I struggled to care for my hair and was very insecure about it, to the point where I did everything I could to reverse the curl. Now I work as a content creator and digital marketing specialist and I work with my natural curls too!
Together, my “seester” Mell and I work in partnership to create content for ‘Manes by Mell’. Together, we use our very different skill sets online to help others, like myself, learn to care for and embrace their natural hair.
