MopTop is a small, woman-owned business, with BIG FISH ideas and aspirations. Our business is hair care, so it is only fitting we are based in Texas, the original big-hair state!
The MopTop Gang is comprised of a team of 5 women who have 5 husbands and a dozen of children between them. Our collective mantra is family first, with healthy hair and fun in the workplace being close seconds. We are all former professionals, ranging from pharmaceutical and property sales, to accounting, marketing, and teaching.
Kelly is the Founder, Owner and Creative Genius behind the MopTop and FuzzyDuck brands. With her naturally kinky-coily curls, she is the inspiration for the original curly misfit. She lives the brand authentically, embracing her natural beauty and enthusiastically encouraging others to do the same. Kelly is a human blur, ALWAYS in motion. In her spare time, she runs, yogas, paces, assembles things, disassembles things, and considers buying more things to assemble and disassemble. You can usually find her with a chunky smoothie in one hand while wielding a tool of some kind in the other (ANY excuse!). Favorite MopTop product? That’s like asking her to choose her favorite child, but one favorite routine is to cocktail the Leave-In Conditioner with Curly Hair Custard for more lift, softer feel, and the mental escape she gets when breathing in the fresh, citrusy smells.
Kristy is our Vice President of Operations and a force to be reckoned with. She is our scale-the-heights, make-it-happen, push-it-out, get-it-done Implementer Supreme, kind of like the Terminator, but with a sunnier disposition and better shoes. She is of the mindset that cooler heads prevail and lives by the creed “If you can’t say anything nice…” She runs, she bakes, she never stops working, and can often be found at a soccer or lacrosse field after hours. She’s also willing to take one for the team and occasionally don a wig, as warranted. If she wasn’t part of the MopTop Gang, she would be an international poker champion or cruise director. Kristy has straight, fine hair. She loves the smell and feel of her hair after using the MopTop Deep Conditioner before being in the sun to restore her hair, as well as sleeping with it on for a night.
Lynda is our Accountant and in-house yogi, and the only member of the Gang with three passports, just in case things don’t work out at MopTop! She specializes in getting others to “show her the money”, tracking inventory to the last ounce (LITERALLY), and keeping us balanced (our checkbook, as well as our sense of well-being!). When not at MopTop, Lynda teaches yoga, rescues and fosters cats, and zips about her neighborhood on her scooter, curls tucked neatly beneath her skull-head helmet. Her favorite word is Ridiculous!, always with an exclamation point, and thinks that if peanut butter isn’t the answer, then chocolate certainly is. Lynda is our other naturally curly girl and loves the Daily Conditioner and a generous portion of the Curly Hair Custard to bring out the best in her shoulder-length natural curls. Ohmmmm…
Kim runs our Fulfillment Department and gives new meaning to the term “ship-shape” to accurately process, package, and ship our MopTop products, all the while filling the office with her laughter. She enjoys reading, traveling with her husband, and volunteering for her children’s athletic clubs. When she is away from the office, you might find her on the slopes, on the beach (with a book, of course), or taking care of her dogs (for the record – a Malti Poo and Shizu). Kim has thick, wavy and very shiny hair that she prefers to let dry naturally and sweep into a no-nonsense up-do. She is a fan of the Lavender Mint Shampoo and Deep Conditioner (and books and dogs!).
Jessieca writes marketing content, handles orders and payments, responds to customer inquiries, and begs Kelly to turn off the country music. Her passions include volunteerism and literacy, and in a former life she was a permanent fixture at her children’s school, chairing book fairs and clerking in the library. She also enjoys fiddling about on ancestry.com, but lately she has more pressing roots (her own!) to worry about! Jessieca has very dry, fine hair , and is always on the hunt for manageability and volume. Enter MopTop’s salon Leave-It-In Conditioner! She loves the Leave-It-In during the dry, staticky winter months for moisturizing, frizz control, and better styling hold, and the Light Conditioner is a summer month staple.
