My name is Sandra and I am the co founder of Blackhairblackbeauty Ltd. Blackhairblackbeauty is a company which provides advice and information on natural hair and skin care for women of colour in the UK. The company delivers one to one consultations, workshops and seminars.
I hope you do not mind if I share my story with you...
Blackhairblackbeauty Ltd was set up in November 2014. I wanted to create a platform where black women could get practical information in regards to understanding their natural hair and skin.
My ultimate goal for 2016 is to be an established company. A company which enables customers feel empowered with the wealth of information provided to them and the access to a team of specialist professionals in relation to hair and beauty (such as our trichologist, nutritionist, dermatologist and hair and beauty stylists).
I love what I do as I am generally passionate about empowering women to truly embrace their natural looks. The natural hair movement encourages women of colour to truly be themselves and I am very proud and honoured to be an active member.
Another reason why I love being a business owner is because I want to be a good example to my child (as a single parent). I want to teach him that no matter what our story in life is, we can decide the ending.
I am applying for funding of £6,000. This budget will enable me to achieve the following;
*Use social media advertisement to reach potential customers across the UK (allocation of £1,000)
*Advertisement on public transport to reach potential customers who may not be reachable on social media (allocation of £1,000)
*Own transport for carrying equipment (to different areas of the UK) and also to escort my child safely at the same time (Contribution of £2,000)
*Equipment (such as head blocks, ink to print out handouts and mirrors) (allocation of £1,000)
*Contribution towards room hire for workshops and seminars for the first three months (allocation of £1,000)
Whoever reads this and whatever you contribute, even if it is as little as a £1 (that is a one pound closer to achieving my goal), I thank you from the bottom of my heart for even taking the time to read my story.
