Israel Segal is the founder and President of Nola Industries, Inc., a natural hair and body company. He began his journey 25 years ago at French retailer Agnés B. in New York City, where he became the company's first American Press Representative, igniting his passion for the fashion industry. He then worked as a wardrobe stylist for the Bergdorf Goodman brand, and many others. In Los Angeles he lent his talents to commercials and celebrity portraits with Meryl Streep, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Sandra Bullock, Halle Berry and many more. In 2003, Segal became the proud adoptive father of African-American twins, which prompted his interest in natural products for hair and skin. They were nearly impossible to find, as most contained harmful fillers, paraben and phthalates. That's when Free Your Mane and Nola Industries, Inc. got its start.
