Gee Beauty is an independent beauty brand with retail locations in Toronto and Miami, with a global presence online at

Understanding the modern woman whose time is precious and doesn’t have unlimited hours to spend maintaining her beauty, the Gee women created the first Gee Beauty retail services concept store 15 years ago.

The Gee Beauty mother/daughters team - comprised by Miriam, Natalie, Celene and Stephanie Gee - sought to modernize the traditional beauty experience by offering more result-driven, time-sensitive and lifestyle-driven beauty and grooming.

The multi-generational Gee women each represent different skin-types, lifestyles, and beauty goals, while all sharing the same passion and commitment to offering high-performance, solution-driven, clean products.

With an international following and reputation built on impeccable service and exceptional products, the brand expanded to the US, with a flagship store in Miami, and more recently an online e-commerce platform.
