Today we’d like to introduce you to Crystal Cyprian.
Crystal, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I have been doing hair since I was a little girl! I have always been interested in all things beauty but more specifically hair. I was always determined to do my own hair in the latest style without the consultation of a professional. I became more involved with hair when I was in undergrad. I would do everyone’s hair, my mother, cousins, neighbors, and a lot of the girls from my college campus. I really started to do my own hair because of the expensive price of weaves at that time. As a college student, I couldn’t afford to consistently get my hair done at a salon with all of the latest looks I liked. So, I created the looks myself.
When doing someone’s hair, I love the way people feel after their hair is done by me. They would walk out of my chair with an extra boost of confidence and would be beaming with gratitude. That would make me soo happy to witness that. This is the main reason I created my beauty line to support women to feel their absolute best. The second reason I created my beauty brand was to create cost-effective quality beauty products for all women. I take pride in supporting people to look their best on a budget.
I also started my beauty line from doing professional photoshoots and styled shoots. I love coming together with other creative individuals and see an idea come to fruition. I thought to myself, I can create my own line instead of searching for products for every photoshoot. So I did! Once I started my beauty brand I hit the ground running being published in major magazines and blogs, my products were worn in New York Fashion Week, I was an exhibitor at the Bronner Bros. Hair Show in Atlanta and I filmed a professional commercial ad. I owe it all to God for giving me the skills to support women in their beauty journey.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Since starting Crystal Camille’s Half WIGs & Essentials Inc. the road has not been totally easy but it is definitely worth it. As a new entrepreneur in the beauty industry there are a lot of things to learn. Some of the struggles along the way are figuring out how to do my taxes for a corporation, processing the right amount of products, and dedicating time set aside for myself. I’m so passionate about my beauty brand that I spend a lot of time throughout the day dedicated to expanding my brand. What I do to support my journey is to educate myself as much as possible so that I am maximizing myself to support Crystal Camille’s Half WIGs & Essentials Inc.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
I honestly would not do anything differently! I was completely obedient on the steps to get me started to owning my own beauty brand.
