I am a licensed stylist that been in business for over 18years. I’m a salon owner/stylist for over 6yrs. I have had my own hair product line called The Dream Team Hair & Beauty for over a year and have also been a rap artist for over 8 years.
Who are some women of color who inspire you and why?
Ursula Dudley Oglesby inspires me because she’s over the Dudley Brand that has been in business for over 50 years handed down from her mom & dad Eunice & Dr. Joe L. Dudley Sr. This is a multimillionaire company that has their own hair product line across the globe & in partnership with license stylist & barbers. Ursula does a great job running the company and keeping the Beauty Professionals updated on the latest trends and the business side of things. I use to be a distributor for the company. When I was in the meetings I love how she had us doing different fun activities and had us watching different videos to help us learn more about the products. She also had the instructors break down the different ingredients that are in the products and what they are good for. She also has a big event every year for the licensed cosmetologist & barbers that involves the instructors and distributors. At this event, she has the licensed professionals choose a 2hr class they would like to go to.
The licensed professionals have a choice to go to a hair cutting class, color class, business class, hair weave class, etc. The classes are different every year to educate the beauty professionals on the new trend and get their CEU hours. She always has something motivational to say when she goes on stage. On the last day of the event, she would have a hair show showing the different styles that you can do using the Dudley Brand and serve the beauty professionals upscale food while being entertained. I look up to her because of the experience I gained from the company and want to do the same thing with my own company.
Nikki Rich inspires me because she is doing a lot of great things. She helped me a lot along the way with my business. She uses my hair products and loves them. I like the fact that she wants to see entrepreneurs succeed. She’s the owner of The Nikki Rich Show and interviews a lot of celebrities & entrepreneurs that’s doing great things. By me watching her go through some stumbling blocks it didn’t stop her and that is a powerful thing.

We understand you have been working with Zaytoven, please tell us about your collaboration with him?
I went to Atlanta to UR Recording Studios where a lot of celebrities go to record their music. I met Zaytoven there to do a commercial for my The Dream Team Hair & Beauty Professional Hair Products. While we were there I was listening to Zaytoven beat selection. I picked out a song I want to record. The purpose of the commercial is to let people know that I got what he needs which is my hair products and he got what I need which is a Zaytoven beat.
After I got finished with the commercial Zaytoven got some of my products to try out. I went back to the studio a month later to record my new song called Never Knock Me Down on Zaytoven beat I selected when I did the commercial. My stage name is B-Rawz ft Jayo Da Best. Right after I stepped out of the booth I went straight into doing a music video of the song with Zaytoven in the video.
The purpose of the song is to advertise my The Dream Team Hair & Beauty Professional Hair Products and to let negative people know that they can’t knock me down. Zaytoven told me he love my products after I got finished recording the hook to my song. After the song got finished I got an invite to the 2 Finnesse movie premiere. Zaytoven, AL Nuke, Zaytoven brother Amos Dotson & more are acting in this movie. The studio I recorded my song at is in the movie also. Zaytoven like the song so much that I got a distribution deal. So I’m going to be a Zaytoven artist. My music will also be on Zaytoven Beats Radio and more.

In what ways do you feel black women have thrived in 2021?
As an entrepreneur having my own hair product line I go to different pop-up shops. I see a lot of black women selling different stuff at their tables. So I feel like more black women took advantage of getting their own business and being successful at it.
