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

Hi Jada, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
My thought process behind starting my business was to create a space for women with all types of natural hair to feel safe, seen, and comfortable when it comes to expressing the versatility of Natural hair.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I make custom-made natural hair shirts that create a community amongst women with all natural hair types. I am so excited when women are able to relate to a shirt and share their natural hair story along with it. Although there is always room for improvement, getting to the place that I am currently in was not easy. I’ve had to work on and still working through self-doubt, logistics, and fear of failure. What has helped me overcome the challenges are focusing on my why, and thinking about the impact my brand can make on others rather than myself. Some lessons that I have learned are to press forward despite fear and to be disciplined. I would like the world to know that Nicole’s Closet will be a one-stop-shop for all your natural hair necessities.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If my best friend were to visit, the week would be jam-packed full of activities and good food! Some of the food places we would hit up would be a mix between Seafood, Italian, and Vegan. This will include everything from crawfish, Italianos, and Sunshines Vegetarian Deli. Some of the places we would attend are rock climbing, go-kart racing at K1 speed, enjoying nature at a local park, and skating.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Throughout this journey, I have been blessed by God to have many people pour into me with support, mentorship, love, and encouragement. I would like to thank my supporters who believe in my brand, my family, friends, my mom Twyla Lee and my mentor Tashell Williams.
