Meet Jenevive Cole of JKHairCollection in Maryland

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jenevive Cole.

Jenevive, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Growing up, I always knew I wanted to own my own business, as a child I would copy people from television saying “I’m the boss” or “you’re fired!” & telling my imaginary assistants to get me coffee. The entrepreneur in me started showing in elementary school, I used to make waist beads and bracelets and sell them to the other girls at recess & lunch. When I was in the tenth grade, I got my first job at a fast food restaurant, I loved the feeling of making my own money but hated the feeling of having to work for someone else. I knew I wanted to start a business but I didn’t know what exactly it was that I wanted to do or where I would even start. I always received compliments on my hairstyles everywhere I went & people would ask me “where did you get your hair?”.

I realized that if my hair draws so much attention why not start selling my own? I procrastinated and doubted myself for a long time but eventually instead of procrastinating I started researching. I learned all I needed to know about hair extensions, the good and the bad, the Do’s and Don’t. I ordered samples from several suppliers to test out until I finally found the right one. Within a year, I had saved up enough money to start my business and here I was at 17 launching my own hair collection… I started selling hair to family and friends from school and eventually launched a website, increasing my sales. My business is only a year old but I am proud of what I have accomplished so far & will continue to grow.

Has it been a smooth road?
I would describe this journey as a roller coaster. There’s days where everything is up and I’m making maybe 2-3 sales a day then there’s times where I might go a whole week without making any sales. At those times, I catch myself feeling discouraged, even considered giving up a few times. To get myself out of those moods, I remind myself that all the big time companies now went through the same exact thing I am experiencing now and that gives me the courage to keep going and to not quit.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the JKHairCollection story. Tell us more about the business.
The name of my business is JKHairCollection and I specialize in selling 100% human raw Indian and virgin hair extensions along with hair accessories. I believe that hair is an investment which is why I provide quality hair that is guaranteed to last for a while and bring out the best you. I am most proud of my companies growth, how far it has come and how far I know it will go from here.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
In 5-10 years, I expect for JKHairCollection to have a bundle shop In several locations. My product variety will definitely expand from hair extensions to hair care products, stylist tools, accessories and more. I expect JKHaircollection to be the hair Go-to for women all over the country or even the world!
