Delegate Profile

Nancy Twine

Job TitleFounder

Company NameBriogeo Hair Care


Not many people would consider taking the leap of faith from high-paying Wall Street career into the risk-laden world of a natural beauty entrepreneur, but Nancy Twine, ‘green beauty expert’ and founder of Briogeo Hair Care, did just that and quickly discovered her true calling.

Relying on her traditional, modest roots and deep-seeded passion for all things environmentally-kind, Nancy vacated her position as Vice President of the Comodities and Sales Division at Goldman Sachs to follow her dreams of becoming a natural beauty entrepreneur.

Briogeo was inspired by a family tradition of formulating personal care products from scratch at home, using recipes passed down through generations. In an eddort to cut costs in supporting a tribe of 10, Nancy’s grandmother developed her own soaps, lotions and hair care products, which became wildly popular throughout the community. Armed with her knowledge of the industry, Nancy put her passion for natural beauty products in motion and set out to inspire women to reduce their cosmetic carbon footprint without sacrificing an ounce of beauty.

Considered a leading authority on ‘green beauty’, Nancy is often sought out by high-profile women’s and beauty trade publications and has been profiled in Women’s Wear Daily, Beauty Inc., Marie Claire, Essence, American Spa, and earned a coveted spot as one of Glamour’s 35 Under 25 for 2015. She recently won Best Hair category at the 2015 Indie Beauty Expo.

Nancy currently resides in the East Village in New York City.
