Topics will include:

1. Start-Up Budget
2. Communicating w/ Vendors
3. Sampling Hair
4. Branding & Marketing: Photoshoots, Ambassadors, etc.

6. Policies: Refunds/ Returns / Shipping

10. Ways to Launch Your Business!

Ashley and Khat made headlines about ten years ago when they launched their company, Hair Are Us, with an initial investment of $1,000 each and yielded $2 million in revenue in less than two years. Since then, they have remained leaders in the virgin hair industry and are more than qualified to teach a course about it.

“We’ve had many ups and downs, but we have learned so much from starting, maintaining, and growing a business,” they comment. “We went from selling bundles out of the trunks of our cars in parking lots to having three retail stores and a thriving e-commerce business.”

Only 50 slots are available for the class.
