Community Highlights: Meet A’Kierrah Marshall of Intertwined Stylez

Today we’d like to introduce you to A’Kierrah Marshall.

A’Kierrah, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I have always been the friend who would be doing everyone’s hair even if it was to straighten it or braid it down for a wig. One day I said let me invest in myself and actually learn how to do knotless and box braids. since I had the basic technique of braiding already down-packed. It only made sense to learn it because I already had the basic technique of braiding down packed.

Once the pandemic started, I took a braiding class with a local braider and I knew from then I just needed to actually practice on people. I got my SC Braiders license a month later. I started perfecting my craft and started braiding my family and friends just to practice. Each time I could see that I was improving in areas. Being the perfectionist that I am, it just was not enough for me. Enough for me meant it was not looking the best and I wanted to take a break from it.

I just sat back and thought about how I could still use my business but expand it. The wonderful thought of selling and using my own braiding hair came across my mind and I did all of the research on it. Here we are a year later and my braiding hair will be launching in September. It is pre-stretched and one of the best out if you ask me. Hope to gain customers from all over!

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
During this journey of all the research and the process of just starting it up has not been easy. My biggest struggle was feeling like everything has to be perfect before launching it. Everything as far as my branding, my website, the package, and even the funding.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about Intertwined Stylez LLC.?
As a licensed braider at some point, I plan to be a one-stop destination for a large collection of top-notch affordable braiding hair extensions with the best possible experience ever. When I launch the hair I will be selling a variety of colors of braiding hair. I will also open my books back up to the public and prices will include braiding hair as well.

My goal for the business is to provide our customers with a huge selection of premium-quality braiding hair extensions that unveils their innate and unique beauty. I want to also be able to inspire, empower, and promote dream realization, self-actualization, passion fulfillment, and personal growth by providing world-class content, connections, resources, and professionals for people yearning to improve, succeed and enrich their lives.

What sets me apart from others is the fact that I have never heard of anyone selling their own braiding hair. I am most proud that I stepped out of my comfort zone and expanded the business.

The crisis has affected us all in different ways. How has it affected you and any important lessons or epiphanies you can share with us?
During this pandemic, the most interesting lesson I have learned is that ANYTHING is possible if you just give it your all.
