Today we’d like to introduce you to LaRussia Peters.
Hi LaRussia, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
My hair journey began when I was about 11 or 12 years old. Something about hair and beauty piqued my interest. My mother would constantly comb me and my little sister’s hair when we were little girls. She would make sure we had ribbons and bows whenever we left the house. As I got older, I wanted to start styling my hair, so my mom let me. And, of course, I had no idea what I was doing at the time, so I started experimenting on my hair and burned it out with grease and a flatiron, lol. Soon after, I became interested in braiding hair. I’m a look-and-learn type, so I quickly picked up on that skill set and began braiding family and friends. I improved significantly and began charging. So, at that age, I thought, I enjoy doing this and I can make money doing it. I was given a talent at a young age and was able to showcase it throughout my career. I became successful and am now a serial entrepreneur with several businesses.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
There were many difficulties along the way, and anyone who tells you otherwise is making up a story. I began building my clientele in my mother’s kitchen while also traveling to my client’s homes. This resulted in wear and tear on my car. I also had to work other jobs, and I was a teen mom at the age of 16 while still attending school. So, yes, I struggled a lot, but my inner fire wouldn’t let me give up.
Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about LNP HAIRCARE LLC?

Can you tell us more about what you were like growing up?
Growing up, I was always aware that I was different from the other kids. I was the girl who was always looking for ways to be a part of something. I participated in sports, played instruments, danced, but most importantly, I was a protector.
