So tell us a little bit about yourself
I am a stay at home mother of two, wife, sister and friend. I am very creative and love working on new and exciting things.
How long have you been natural and what inspired the change?
9 years ago I went natural and was natural for almost 6 years and I rocked a TWA. My grandfather who is over 90 years old asked me to please grow back my hair (I used to be able to sit on my hair) so as I started to grow my hair out i got a perm to help with some of the thickness. Last year Christmas time I decided the hair had to go lol but I knew I was going to see my grandfather in June so I waited until the day after I saw him and had my big chop again. So this time around i have been natural 9 months and I will never turn back lol.
When did you start your business and what motivated the venture?
Me and my then fiancé lived in a really small town there wasn’t much to do.One day while in Wal Mart we went to the craft section ( we knew if we didn't find something we were going to go insane in my apartment) . So we grabbed puzzles, coloring books, and crayons. In the next isle we saw all these beads and decided to buy some to make some jewelry. We went home and had a date night and we just started making jewelry and that was the beginning. After moving to Va last year I started the online business and in July I started making Natural Hair Accessories
