There are a lot of business owners that are inspired by your success. What inspired you to start your brand’s journey?
Thank you for the compliment. Here is the background on how Kendra’s Boutique all began. I have always been into beauty, and I was getting my hair done every single week. I loved to always go to the beauty salon and switch up my hair styles. At the time, I was using regular pack hair. It was beginning to get so costly to throw out the hair after every install and I couldn’t reuse it. One day, I sat and did my research, and I was able to get my own manufacturer. My hair I was able to reuse, dye, and the quality was impeccable. I was receiving so many compliments about my hair. In the beginning, I would just tell people to just give me the money and I would just get them the hair without any profit. This was all word of mouth, no social media. It was to the point where people will go to the local beauty supply and ask them are you able to get the hair Kendra has. The demand kept getting higher, higher, and higher. I sat and thought to myself “Why don’t you just turn this into a business?” Now look, we are here today.
Many look at you as the hair GOAT. What are a few things that contributed to Kendra’s Boutique’s longevity in the industry?
First and foremost, my faith in the man upstairs God. Without him none of this would be possible. Your passion will lead you into your purpose. I have always had a passion for hair, your hair is your crown. I don’t look at this as a job, every day I show up and give 110%. Also, having a supportive husband by my side, my partner, my best friend, my better half. Without him, I wouldn’t be anything. He motivates me daily and uplifts me all the time. My hardworking team, my team shows up every single day and works hard. I appreciate them so much. Finally, my hair barbs, the best customers in the world. Without them, none of this would be possible. It is because of them that we are going this long and strong. I always listen to them and ask for feedback. Listening to your customers is the key to success. Your customer always comes first and their opinion matters.
Your wigs and extensions give women that extra push needed to find confidence. What are some beauty tips you believe all your supporters should know?
When your hair is done, you feel good about yourself. Take care of your crown. Brush it, wrap it, wear a hair bonnet or scarf. Take care of your investment. Prioritizing self-care is important. Take out time for you. Wash your hair, get your hair done. Eat a great breakfast, workout, drink lots of water to stay hydrated and eat fruits and vegetables. When you feel good on the inside, you will feel great on the outside. Protect your peace, energy, and space always. Get a good night’s rest, learn how to set healthy boundaries, and pray. Do things that make you happy. Do not let negativity consume you. Positive thoughts = Positive mind = Positive Life. Do not ever feel guilty for treating yourself right.
