TB: What inspired you to start your business?
E: What inspired me was my boyfriend believe it or not. He knows how I feel about my hair and he knows I literally change it like almost every other week.

TB: How would you describe your business?
E: My business is black-owned, I’m also doing skin and lip products. I like to do hair because not only does it make people feel beautiful but it’s their crown. I feel like hair describes who you are. And that is why I always wear my hair differently.
