Frugal Style Expert, Brandhyze Stanley, has been featured on numerous media outlets such as The View, The Early Show, The Today Show, and Instyle, and Essence Magazine to name a few. Author of the blog, Frugal-nomics: The Art of Resourceful Living; MTVStyle said that, “We’re totally jealous of her great thrifty finds.”
With Business Degree in hand from Loyola University Chicago, Brandhyze landed an internship with Wilhelmina Models in New York City. A few months into her internship, Brandhyze’s beauty, charisma and resourcefulness led Wilhelmina to sign her for print modeling. Landing national campaigns for Verizon, Graco Baby, Dark n’ Lovely and spreads in Oprah’s “O,” print modeling then segued Brandhyze into a career as a professional working actress. Some of her credits include the “Perfect Stranger”, “Inside Man,” “The Good Wife,” “Person of Interest,” and frequent appearances on every New York City soap from “All My Children” to “As The World Turns”. All of this prepared Brandhyze for a career in on-camera hosting where she has had the honor of interviewing everyone from Tina Fey and Kim Kardashian to Anna Wintour (Vogue) and LeBron James – everywhere from hot movie premieres to the Tony Awards.
A massive unexpected layoff forced Brandhyze to hone in on her true passion. Coined as a true “haggler” even by her high school Spanish teacher, Brandhyze was always the one to share the latest ways to make a dollar stretch. Her passion for helping others reach their fullest potential to save on all levels, is the driving force behind her many successful brands. Brandhyze’s diverse experiences and business acumen span many different industries and she has no desire to slow down anytime soon. She continues to strive towards her ultimate goal, which is to innovate in every industry she is inspired to play in while empowering others to live and look fabulous on a dime.
As a TV personality, highly sought after speaker, designer and more; Brandhyze is more than a triple threat, and undoubtedly a force to be reckoned with. Brandhyze believes in active participation and lives by the belief that you should “never accept ‘no’ for an answer, especially from someone not in the position to tell you ‘yes’ in the first place.”
