We had the good fortune of connecting with Diamond Hickman and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Diamond, every day, we about how much execution matters, but we think ideas matter as well. How did you come up with the idea for your business?
I’ve always enjoyed doing hair since I was little. I would practice every chance I got. I even taught myself how to braid at a young age. As I became older and learned more about hair and how to do other people’s hair,I have loved doing hair more and more. So I created a hustle in doing others hair. The name of my business is “Diamond Did That”.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
What sets me aside from everyone else is just being myself. I’m most proud and excited about the aftermath of my client’s finished look and that the client is satisfied on how it came out. It makes me feel good and proud of myself.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
My best friend loves to go to a good lounge to drink,smoke hookah and dance. So I would definitely take her there and go to a good food spot to go eat at. Probably find a good fun place to enjoy ourselves.
