A letter from the CEO:

Why I started Trendy Tresses

Trendy Tresses has been in business for the last 8 years. I left my teaching job and started the business at 23 years old with my savings. I received no additional funding or help. I also knew absolutely nothing about business, so the journey was extremely challenging but rewarding! My goal when starting this company was to encourage women to embrace their natural hair and natural hair styles. After my teaching job, I would spend my evenings and weekends doing hair.  My side hustle enabled me to notice the lack of options, as well as poor quality hair used for crochet braiding hair. I made it my goal to solve this gap in the market. When we launched in 2016, we received an excellent response and grew a lot quicker than expected. Our products are what black women in particular had been seeking. Our crochet braiding hair has been our most successful product as we have provided something that the market had failed to provide at the time: a range of curls, colours, textures and good quality synthetic hair. We have since expanded our product range to a variety of human hair wigs, bundles, closures and frontals.


How your contribution will be used

  1. Seeking new suppliers: This is probably the most important goal for us. We want to focus on making better quality products at an affordable price with sensible production times. In turn, our customers will be even happier with their purchases, we will also be able to potentially reduce our product and shipping costs so customers are paying less.
  2. Purchasing large amounts of inventory: Not only will this be a cheaper option for us, but it means we can finally meet the demand of our customers. We will no longer have the issue of constantly having sold out items. The majority of the donations will be used for this goal.
  3. Providing new jobs: The more skilled workers there are in a company, the more successful it can be. We will also be able to boost the economy by providing more jobs! We specifically want to hire a content creator, more customer service reps and an email marketing manager. If you are interested in any of these roles, please email us!

Thank you once again! Let’s support and grow black businesses!
