About Mireya and Pink Pewter
Mireya Villarreal is a creator. She has a passionate vision for style that was founded in her mother’s hair salon as a stylist at an early age, but inspired by the birth of her daughter, transitioned into headbands and has expanded to a full line of accessories, cosmetics and salon essentials offered through Pink Pewter. Mireya’s goal is a personal commitment to complete your look.
She is the daughter of Mexican immigrants that came to the United States to pursue their own dreams. Her mother is also a stylist that opened her own shop in the suburbs of Chicago. Dad was a steel worker. Mireya grew up in the wake of entrepreneurism, dedicated work ethic and creativity. Her experiences in life equipped her with the tools necessary to take ideas and make them realities, to take yes as the only answer and to be something different, special.
The idealistic style behind Pink Pewter started as a few headbands for her toddler daughter Marina, hand made at Mireya’s kitchen table. Her unique designs generated interest that turned into demand. Mireya recognized the opportunity and began making more in small batches that she sold in her mother’s salon. As those began to sell out, she loaded a case with a few designs and make unscheduled sales calls to Chicago boutiques and salons. The business has continued to grow through some of the largest stores and online retailers and she has expanded Pink Pewter’s offerings to a full line of accessories, cosmetics and a very innovative line of specialized salon essentials. Pink Pewter product is currently sold in 42 countries around the globe.
Today, Mireya remains the driver behind Pink Pewter designs. Her inspiration grows from personal experience. She travels the globe and works with the world’s biggest influencers of fashion in New York, Los Angeles, Milan, Paris. She and those that she associates with and has partnered with represent a network of people that literally invent style and establish the basis for trend.
