About this Company
Giell – the business brainchild of Marcel Bouffard and Joanne Lampron – was established in 2006. After many years of successfully running ecommerce stores through Ebay and Amazon platforms, Marcel and Joanne realized that there was a large gap in the cosmetology market – one that they were servicing quite well on a small scale. Soaring sales, loyal customers, and a growing list of products presented the perfect opportunity for these two great entrepreneurs to consolidate efforts, and create one incredible brand. With a focus on servicing the cosmetology industry as a whole, through one customer-centric portal, Giell.com was born!
Giell specializes in cosmetology mannequin heads for use in beauty schools, academies and in-salon education. With our large assortment of mannequins, student and educators are sure to find a model to fit their needs. Giell also supplies beauty schools with customized student kits. Salons, educators and schools can choose from several pre-made stock kits, or work with Giell to have their own custom kits.

I needed a true Afro mannequin for my sister loc class and this was the best one I found. I initially ordered one on Amazon that was supposed to be an Afro but was far from it. And the shipping was very quick, I think it came in 3-4 days.

I love this mannequin because it resembles my 4C hair type. It is beautiful!
Research, great reviews, I like that beauty schools are your clients. I’m into using proper equipment as I am a public school teacher.

Firstly, I am not a hair professional but I take my hair seriously! Since COVID, I decided to maintain my own hair and it is healthy and growing. I want to improve my styling skills and decided I need a mannequin with hair like me! I get ideas from many sources and I need lots of practice. 'I am up to the challenge!' My experience with the Giell company was excellent! Customer service answered all my questions and was very helpful to me. I have already recommended them to my family and friends! Thank you Giell

I really needed this mannequin and has not disappointed! The hair is the right texture and I’m able to make good clean parts! I wish I would have known about this one first. I will be recommending this one to all my colleagues.

I am pleased with my purchases from Giel. Before I made my purchase, I shopped around at various places before coming here. None of the other places had the reviews that Giell had. Their customer service is also on point!!! Thank you very much for providing good products and good service and delivery!
I shopped around online at other places first, but Giell had the best customer reviews!

This is a great price for a good quality mannequin! My only complaint is the texture of the hair when it’s out of the box is NOT the actual texture you’re left with after your first wash. I’m not sure if this was just my experience, but the curl pattern was much looser and the texture was quite soft and not really reminiscent of true “Afro” texture. With that being said, the hair lightened great and hair is easy to manage/style. I would recommend!
These were the products I was shopping for, great prices

I'm so happy to have a mannequin head like this. I go to cosmetology school and all of the natural hair dolls they gave to us easily gets matted and the hair is really short. But this one I've had no problems with it at all. Love it!!
I saw that the reviews are really good.
I needed a long haired doll for up styles and a natural hair doll to practice braiding and being more familiar with natural hair.

My step daughter has just learned how to do hair. Braiding her own hair, our hair, and she’s really good. For Christmas she asked for a mannequin head. I went on Amazon- because we love Amazon but the hair weren’t African Americans; the faces were scary. So I stubbles across this website and shipping was fast! Great value! Great price!
Amazon didn’t have the style, or the quality we were going for. I l, don’t remember but I stubbles across this website and instantly fell in love!
It was exactly what we were looking for.

Why Trust Verified Reviews?
Verified Reviews are real, authentic reviews collected from actual paying customers, using Shopper Approved's Verified Review Platform. When reviews are Verified by Shopper Approved, you know that you can trust them to make better buying decisions.
Unverified Reviews on the other hand, are reviews collected by Open Review platforms that allow anyone to leave a review, without any validation or proof of purchase. Unfortunately, most reviews you read online are Unverified Reviews, and can't be trusted.
As a consumer, here's how you can tell the difference:
Verified Reviews from Verified Review Platforms like Shopper Approved, have much higher review counts and higher overall Star ratings, because they attempt to collect reviews from every single paying customer.
Unverified Reviews from Open Review Platforms, tend to have much lower review counts and more negative Star ratings, because people with bad experiences are primarily those who leave reviews. This often creates a misleading, inaccurate portrayal of a companies true reputation.
So, when searching for Verified Reviews, look for the name you know you can trust. Shopper Approved.
