Tammy Reese: What inspired you to become an Entrepreneur?
Jessica Kidd: I am a natural-born leader. I knew early on I wanted to be the one to give others an opportunity in my industry. As I grew in my field, I knew one day I wanted to create a place that I desperately needed as a new professional almost 20 years ago. I worked in salons and learned what to do and what not to do. The culture and vibe I wanted to work in didn’t exist, so I had to create it.

Tammy Reese: How has business been during the pandemic?

Tammy Reese: What do you enjoy most about the work that you do?
Jessica Kidd: I love helping new and seasoned professionals figure things out in this industry. I also love changing how a stylist and client sees the Black salon experience.

Tammy Reese: What advice would you have for anyone who wants to become an entrepreneur?
Jessica Kidd: My best advice would be to never give up. Always remember your why. Your why will be what keeps you when you want to give up. Make sure it’s something that’s solid because it will be tested. Find your niche and master it. Do your research. Save! Have a plan and believe that the best is always yet to come!
