Meet Hajja Barnes

Today we’d like to introduce you to Hajja Barnes.

Hi Hajja, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
Moore Color Shop LLC is an online beauty brand selling luxury wigs, extensions, and cosmetics. We recently relaunched our brand in June 2022. Since its relaunch, our products have been worn by Edaily Pop host Lani Love, Access Hollywood host Kit Hoover and Nightlypop host Nina Parker. We are rapidly growing as an ethically sourced, cruelty-free, vegan brand. We are set to start selling in-store in the summer of 2023 and will be launching more products around that time as well.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
We initially launched in June 2021 and had very little recognition, our brand didn’t have much of a voice and there was so much to learn from social media marketing to rebranding. We’ve since gained a significant amount of attraction and continue to do so since the relaunch.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am a local 706 Union Makeup Artist based in Los Angeles. I have been working as a Makeup Artist for over 10 years and have been passionate about beauty since as long as I can remember. As a licensed cosmetologist, I can say that investing in your education is a must in this business, I look forward to all that I will learn in the years to come.

Can you tell us more about what you were like growing up?
Born and raised in New York, I was always the “observer” known to be the quiet child I often times would stay to myself, read, write and paint. At 12 years old, my parents moved my siblings and I to Los Angeles, where I discovered BEAUTY. There was nothing like makeup, nothing like playing with different hairstyles and adding hair pieces to spruce up my look. Beauty has always been a healthy outlet for me to be whoever I wanted to be.
