Starting a personal business was always a dream which needed a little nudge to materialize. I was just not sure whether to venture into baking or braiding which I equally love.
As life would have it my first child is a girl. I always disliked how hairstylists would tighten braids till the kids burst into tears. It killed me which made me vouch to do her hair myself, which I have no regrets about.
Thanks to Alexis of @babybliss who pushed me to start my business, I did over a year ago.
Mane Avenue is a kids’ mobile hair salon which specializes in kids hair grooming. We offer services such as braids, hair washing and treatment. I intend to include barbering where kids can have their haircut from the comfort of their homes.
I remember being part of Babybliss mother’s day fair and taking my kids and my twin sister there as early as 6 am. Thanks to my twin @toniapee and some wonderful friends like @mon_derby and @n_triplea who helped it was a success. I got clients from that day who still call.
As a career woman with a full-time job as a Risk Analyst and juggling 2 kids has not been a walk in the park.
Most of the time, I have no help at all. I recruited a few ladies to help during the week where they go to clients houses to braid hair. Some left without any reason and others gave flimsy excuses. I currently have one permanent assistant.
Definitely not happy about where the business is but I am working at making it better. I have been MIA because managing social media is not my forte, hats off to content creators. I enrolled in professional training @3130naturals (the wonderful Zubie 🙂 ) to get a better understanding of hair and everything that goes into it. So you can say I am a bit biased towards natural hair.
I am currently adding the sale of hair products and kids hair accessories. Since the outbreak of COVID 19 not everyone is welcoming or wants to allow people into their homes as expected. The least I can do is to provide ribbons to help beautify their children’s hair 😃
Definitely not giving up on my dream of owning one of the best kids hair salons in Ghana. I believe someday I will look back at all the struggles and it will be worth it.
