About Mireya and Pink Pewter
Mireya Villarreal is an innovator. Her creative vision for styling was deeply rooted in her mother’s hair salon. After the birth of her daughter, she began producing headbands and has expanded to a full range of accessories and salon essentials through her brand, Pink Pewter. Her parents, Mexican immigrants, sought a better life in the US; her mother a stylist, her dad a steel worker. Mireya was raised to take risks, work hard and be unique. She has the drive to turn ideas into reality.
Mireya's original designs, crafted at her kitchen table for her daughter Marina, led to increased interest in Pink Pewter's idealistic style. The demand soon followed.
Mireya saw the potential, producing multiple iterations in limited amounts to supply her mother's salon. When these proved successful, she brought samples to Chicago area stores and salons via unscheduled visits.
Pink Pewter has seen significant expansion since its inception, developing a vast portfolio of accessories and salon supplies and selling in more than 30 nations worldwide.
Mireya is the creative force behind the Pink Pewter designs.Drawing inspiration from her visits to fashion hubs like New York, Los Angeles, Milan, and Paris, she formulated innovative concepts. She and her collaborators are integral to setting the precedent for fashion developments.

"Now, it's time to share my story with the world"
"I would get approached by salon professionals at beauty shows around the globe who would ask me how I was able to start from a small 600 square foot salon to growing an international beauty brand now sold in 30 plus countries. I would simply tell them my story, hoping that I could inspire them to reach for their dreams."
My progress from being a hairstylist working in a 600 square foot salon offering $12 haircuts to cultivating an international beauty brand, sold in more than 30 nations, was marked by accomplishments, setbacks and worthwhile insights.
