Beauty Business Babes: Keonna and Kayla Davis
Always inspired by entrepreneurs, we were taken aback by the grit, the determination and the all-round fabulous-ness of KD Haircare Supply founders Keonna and Kayla Davis, which is why we went ahead and interviewed them!
Preaching to the choir here, but starting and operating a business is a pretty trying endeavor. How did the idea to open a beauty supply store come about?
The idea of opening up a beauty supply store came to us from our mother! After we complained to her about not finding a job, she gave us the idea to start our own business.
What has the biggest challenge been so far? And what has been the most rewarding/greatest success so far?
The biggest challenge for us was trying to find products that our community uses. The most rewarding was simply the love and support from our community.
Why beauty and hair?
We decided to focus on beauty and hair because we know we spent tons of money on our hair and we know that others do the same. We also wanted to highlight natural hair options and encourage people to start embracing their natural hair instead of relying on perms.
Are there any hairstyles that you are tempted to try right now?
I (Kayla) actually decided to do something bold and cut my hair short. My sister on the other hand cuts her hair all the time!
What words (beauty related or not) do you strive to live by?
"Natural is better."
