Inspiring Conversations with Shayron Hamilton of Minks N’ Things

Today we’d like to introduce you to Shayron Hamilton.

Hi Shayron, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
My first time I put on a pair of eyelash strips, I fell in love. I instantly went to the store and grabbed multiple styles and it’s been history since. I noticed I would always receive compliments about my lashes and being asked where I get them from and one day, I thought to myself “I’m marketing for someone else’s business when I could be marketing for my own business; from there I did all the research and investing I needed to in order to begin. My launch date was November 2nd, 2020. Although I am not completely where I want to be, I must say I have made so much improvement and my business has grown so much and one of the main components is SUPPORT my close friends and family show up and show out for me in every aspect when it comes to my business.

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?
It has not been a smooth road, but thanks to my passion for my business, I somehow count the bumps in the roads as trophies once I surpass them. I am a vendor in multiple pop up shops and for the longest, I never needed a canopy tent one day, I needed a tent for a pop up shop for some reason, I thought I could do it all on my own lol wrong it was literally a disaster and I had a panic attack luckily for one of my bestfriends and my dad they came to my rescue and lets just say I’m a PRO with tents now for my pop up shops.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
Minks N’ Things home of the hottest Mink eyelashes and accessories. We are a black-owned business. We specialize in helping every boss babe feel fly and like a Boss at an affordable price. We offer Mink Eyelashes, sunglasses, bucket & beret hats, plus more. I am definitely known for my mink eyelashes and the fact that they can be worn multiple times. What sets me apart from others is this isn’t just my business this is ME, this is my BRAND and I don’t carry myself as “Shayron” anymore; I am Minks N’ Things! I am most proud of my sunglasses the success of our shades catalog is beyond amazing. I would like the readers to know that lashes look great on EVERY lady and don’t let anyone tell you different. I do offer consults via email or dm via Instagram for Lashes and the perfect pair for you and soon, I will be offering Mink eyelash application services for my ladies who don’t know how to put lashes on but still like to wear them.

What do you like and dislike about the city?
The thing I love most is that the growth of Black-owned businesses have grown so much in the past couple of years it’s amazing. The thing I like least right about now are the gas prices, lol.
