Get #socialproof - One strategy I use to gain 5000+ REAL social followers in ONLY 4 days!
Monet, Show Me How



Okay, truth be told I’m a firm believer in the notion that family, friends, and yes “likes” DON’T buy. However, after working for one of the largest global hair care brands in the world and launching several of my own products and services, I have certainly learned firsthand how important social proof can be, especially when monetizing your personal brand. So let me show you how easy it is for me to help you grow your social followers with REAL targeted interest. Watch how I gain 5000 + followers in just 4 days!  This could be you too!

You were ready to launch this ideal beauty product, or better yet, you were in direct sales marketing and trying to build a business with a brand that you loved. Would you know how to get in front of the right person to buy without having to have millions of followers or being forced to tap into your warm market first? OR…

Maybe you’re ready to promote your product or services.  Do you know how to get your product in front of mainstream media outlets without having to spend thousands of dollars to gain the attention your product deserves? OR…


Have you ever wanted the opportunity to become an educator for a global company or product that you were completely obsessed over, and get  paid for sharing your business strategies with other industry professionals?

now, Imagine this was you

And your ideas, products, or services not only mattered but

helped change someone else’s life and Your self-published book could be found on one of these shelves.


Pretend that every single person you meet has a sign around his or her neck that says, Make me feel important.‘ Not only will you succeed in sales, you will succeed in life.

-Mary Kay Ash

Outside of being a simple person in a colorful yet sometimes complicated industry, I’m obsessed with helping others bring their own unique ideas, products, and services to the forefront of the beauty industry. Why? Because I was once where you are. I was constantly asking myself “what if “…….

Hi, I’m Monet Colbert, brand strategist, licensed beauty professional, author, former educator for L’Oreal’s global hair care brand REDKEN, and proud founder of Shades of Monet®.

And while all of this may sound impressive. Guess what? I did 95% of that in less than 5 years!!! I would often ask myself how was it that I did this (with limited resources and expertise, not to mention a competitively saturated market) in a fraction of the time most people that venture into the world of beauty do?

Then it “HIT ME,” and I uncovered what the missing KEY ingredient was. That’s when I realized I cracked the code when it came to understanding how to monetize your personal brand in every unconventional way imaginable. I actually have a simple blue print C.U.R.B  appeal methodology that has helped hundreds of entrepreneurs build their businesses and gain media outlet exposure with marketing funnel growth hacks, not to mention the joint venture opportunities waiting for you to cash in on. Just like they have!

The beauty Industry It’s not slowing down

‘In 2016, the global cosmetic market grew an estimated four percent in comparison to the previous year. Skincare, hair care, make-up, perfumes, toiletries, deodorants, and oral cosmetics are the main product categories of the cosmetic market. Skincare was the leading category, accounting for about 36 percent of the global market. Hair care products made up 23 percent. While make-up accounted for 18.2 percent in 2016. Skincare has been forecasted to remain the most profitable product category, as its market value is projected to grow by 20.1 billion U.S. dollars between 2014 and 2019. As of 2016, Asia and Oceania were the industry leaders, accounting for approximately 40 percent of the global market. Between 2016 and 2021, the Asia Pacific mass beauty market is projected to grow by nearly 14.9 billion U.S. dollars in sales.’

Regional Director , NEUMA Tampa, Florida

Back in March, my company put on a bridal event set for 50 people. I had no idea where to begin. I hired Shades of Monet as a consultant to help my team plan a successful event. Monet was able to help me create a treatment board to set the vision in motion and provide resources that I would not have known even existed without her team. From planning, promotion, ad spend, and providing a network it allowed me to put together a successful event. When it was time for the actual event, I couldn’t believe how much it looked like the plan. When you are planning an event there is always something that could go wrong and when it did her team was able to help me get things back on track. I honestly wouldn’t have been able to create an event of this magnitude without their services.
