Kristin Ess Suing Partners at Maesa

In a series of Instagram highlights, Ess shares that Maesa 'sold themselves to me as a beauty brand incubator, touting their ability to launch, grow + eventually sell my brand to ensure its continued success. Instead of holding true to their commitments, they've continued gripping onto my brand, using it as a piggy bank to fund their many other ideas.'

Kristin Ess has announced on her Instagram page that she is suing her partners at Maesa "for several reasons," in particular being "that I was misled during this partnership."

Maesa is the incubator behind brands such as Mindy McKnight's Hairitage

In a series of Instagram highlights, Ess shares that Maesa "sold themselves to me as a beauty brand incubator, touting their ability to launch, grow + eventually sell my brand to ensure its continued success. Instead of holding true to their commitments, they've continued gripping onto my brand, using it as a piggy bank to fund their many other ideas."

Ess continued to share that she had hoped to settle the issues privately, "but the time has come to take a different approach."

The message concluded, "The one thing I know for sure is—If I don't fight with everything I've got in this moment, the Kristin Ess Hair brand will continue to suffer and deviate from the path I've always dreamed for it. I can't just sit back and watch that."
