Sophisticate’s Black Hair goes beyond beauty to turn the spotlight on inspiring women of style and subtance. This is an excerpt from our regular Beauty Insider feature.




Sandra Miller Jones founded Segmented Marketing Services, Inc. in 1980 as a way to connect brands with highly sought-after niche markets, such as women, teenagers and urban and ethnic consumers. Since then, the Howard University and Northwestern University alum has helped SMSi to grow into a dynamic force in the marketing industry, with several Fortune 100 clients as well as representatives in the Top 20 African-American and Hispanic markets nationwide. “I’ve been blessed to have so many dreams come true. And always, it seems, the right dream unfolded and materialized for just the right season of my life.”

“My message to the world is: Look for the good in every situation and you will find it. Seek out hard-working, positive people whenever you can.”
