Community Highlights: Meet Tatiayanna Jones of Purple48 Hair Collection and More

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tatiayanna Jones.

Hi Tatiayanna, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I started my business during the pandemic in 2020. I was temporarily laid-off and uncertain of when I was to return back to work.

My eyes were opened to the reality, that being an employee and working for someone else, is a world of dependency of a company paycheck.
I started trying to make masks at first. But I’m not a seamstress so that turned out terrible. Unable to get my hair done, I started thinking about wigs! Wigs have definitely come a long way in the past 20 years. Women can actually do their own hair, without spending soo much money at the salon. However, I do recommend having wigs installed professionally, for inexperienced wearers. I mostly would wear hair bundles. I began to suffer from Traction Alopecia from having my hair bundles installed too tight. So I’m a very big advocate on hair loss. That was a very devastating experience for me, to see bald spots. (I have pictures) Women need to be very cautious on how they install their hair to avoid Traction Alopecia. For women who have other types of Alopecia, don’t have to walk around bald. (Unless they choose to) Your hair is your beauty, and I believe women can wear hair extensions and wigs and still maintain, who they are inside. Protective styles are very important to the Black hair community, especially during summer and winter months. So, I provide human hair for the quality and sustainability for protective maintenance. I’ve also expanded my business into a clothing boutique called p48 style fashion boutique.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
My biggest challenge was having my vision displayed for my hairboss Queens. I went through different website companies, who promised to build me an awesome website, but I ended up spending soo much money on trying to find the right fit. After a year, I finally found an awesome team, that helped put my vision out on my website.

I’ve had my websites hacked, bank information hacked all due to trusting the wrong people.

Everyone is online shopping, so it’s definitely a plus for my kind of business. It’s hard convincing family and friends to stop putting money into low quality hair and enduring poor customer service to local hair stores, that don’t care.

Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about Purple48 Hair Collection and more LLC?
I sell human hair wigs and hair extensions. The quality hair comes from Indian temples from India and China. I work exclusively close with my vendors, being that I have a close relationship with them, I am able to offer hair extensions at a reasonable price. Customer service is very important to me, so I treat my customers as to how I would like to be treated. My products are not to change the persona of character but help build exceptional high self-esteem.

Black women wear wigs and hair extensions to protect their tresses not because they can’t grow their own hair.

I have revamped my haircare line with a new hair growth oil that has natural seeds and herbs. I’ve partnered with a company called Fibonacci that provides products for maintaining the Quality of our wigs and hair extensions.

I have expanded our business with a clothing boutique. We offer women’s clothing for all occasions, with modern and classy collections. Visit for a sneak peek.

I research the beauty and hair industry and have blogs on my hair website for informational purposes and reasons, to educate my hairboss Queens. I upload very frequently.

I can be found on all social media sites such as IG, FB, TikTok and Twitter.

I give away free products to those who need to look professional for a job interview, or just to look their best at work. I believe in giving back to the community.

My brand purple48 is very unique. I love the color purple and it’s mentioned in the bible 48 times…. Thats were the name Purple48 came from. I thank God for the journey He has prepared for me, and I’m excited to help, encourage, engage and educate all women to pursue their own dreams to flourish in this world.
