What advice would you give to other hair entrepreneurs?

Whether you’re just now stepping into the idea of starting your own hair line or it’s a thought process you’ve been toying around for years now, you likely can’t deny the excitement of the prospect. Starting your own, personal haircare line seems exciting, exhilarating, and totally thrilling, just think of all the people out there that you could help introduce to beautiful, healthy hair! Just the thought of all the positive change you could make through your haircare line is probably overwhelming, right?

But it will make sense as soon as you take the first step.

First my advice for you reading this is build your knowledge about formulating, Take the course, it’s never too late, that’s the road that will lead you to where you need to want to go.

 

Create products that solve problems. Start manufacturing efficiently. Get all legalities out of the way. And lastly build a brand not a business.

What equipment did you start out with?

I started off with just an immersion blender. Afterwards, I started building up my lab equipment.

How did your training at Joan Morais Cosmetics School help your business?

The training at Joan Morais helped my business tremendously. It’s was an enjoyable yet rewarding experience. Way before taking the course I was already formulating but I gained so much confidence on what I was doing and now I am able to provide safe and effective products for my consumers.
