We had the good fortune of connecting with Jaelynn Renee and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jaelynn, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I honestly was nervous to start my own business in the beginning. I didn’t know if I would have any support or if anyone would purchase anything from my brand. But I had faith & I knew God wouldn’t put something in me, if it wasn’t meant to be,
What should our readers know about your business?
My business is Spoiledbratco. I provide women top quality hair bundles. I sell all textures as far as Straight, Bodywave, Deepwave & more. I sell hair that is affordable, top quality, & lasts up to 4+ years.
I started off working two jobs at McDonald’s & Kroger to get inventory, as well as installing some of my extensions on my highschool friends. It wasn’t easy because when you start a business with no help or support, it’s harder because it feels like no one sees your vision but it’s up yo you to make them see it & believe it.
They’re were times were I wouldn’t make sales for about 3 months, my following count stayed at 60 for about a year. But that didn’t stop me because I knew I wouldn’t be in the same position 2 years from now if I keep the same drive. So stayed connected to what’s trending. Even though I started with nothing, I kept going, making flyers, sending dms to every person in my town, & networking which got me where I am today.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If my best friend was visiting, I would take them to Lotus Seafood restaurant which is located in Houston. Seafood is my favorite food, so it would only be right to take my bestie to a hot seafood restaurant. They scenery is definitely to die for & good for insta pics as well.
For drinks, we would have to Kamp Houston. The energy is always high & the drinks are so creative & tasty. Your bound to catch a Celeb or influencer there.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to acknowledge my mother & grandmother. At a young age, I watched my mother work two jobs & struggle financially to provide for me as a single parent. My mother & I were victims of domestic violence at the hands of my father. During that time period, I struggled with depression & mental health issues. Doing hair became an outlet for me. My mother & Grandmother were the ones that actually introduced me & motivated me to get into styling hair. At the age of 8, they started as my first models when it came to installing hair. Soon after it became a passion of mine to pursue this as a career.
