We had the good fortune of connecting with Enlicia Byrd and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Enlicia, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I started my business as a result of being a young mother in college knowing that I needed to achieve something bigger in life for my children. As a result of being a college graduate at Prairie View A&M University looking for a job lead me to not being able to work a job in my field. I decided to pursue my creativity in the beauty industry doing hair for family members and close friends, after two of my aunts were diagnose with cancer. My passion for this industry was just more than hair by because my aunts lost hair in many places. I decided to take interest in the anatomy of hair growth cycle for eyelashes. In 2018, I stepped out on faith in becoming a master lash technician and started my own business The E Experience.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I struggled with people doubting me and trying to make me instill doubt within myself. I took ownership and continue in spite of and killed them with kindness. With that being said I did everything in my power to succeed in whatever I do. My goal is to becoming one of the most successful black female lash technicians in the Houston Metropolitan area.
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.
I love eating! My favorite place is bbs cafe crawfish are bomb. I love being in small businesses to support one another.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would love to shout out GOD because without him I’m nothing!
