Community Highlights: Meet Janiya Bivens of Ninadollhouse

Today we’d like to introduce you to Janiya Bivens.

Hi Janiya, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers?
It all started as an unexpected but, extremely grateful opportunity. I began my small business as a Baltimore hairstylist who specializes in wig installations in February of 2022.

I began my skills in 2021 only installing wigs on myself, and about a year later a very close friend of mine asked me to try one on her & of course, I could not say no. I decided to post the results of her installation on social media, specifically Instagram for the feedback! After, this is where my life began to change for the better!

So, I decided to go all-in, and things changed literally overnight! With the support of friends, family, and even strangers my business had flourished within the past 5 months of starting my business, and I couldn’t be more grateful!

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Of course, every decision may have its ups & downs but, I continued to push through! Running a business requires a lot of maintenance.

For example, keeping up with content, pricing, price increases, slow business, and the list goes on. These are some of the many things I found to be hard.

I am also a college student who is fighting through my last semester of community college in order to obtain my Associate’s degree in Psychology while maintaining my main occupation.

This also played a role in some of the bumps in the road but, consistency is key!

Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
My business is a wig installation business!

Where clients of any gender can book an appointment with me for a wig install! I specialize in wigs but, I have begun to venture out into other aspects of hair styling which is very exciting, and will be displaying new services, and even a website very soon.

I believe what set me apart from others is how I quickly picked up and began to put my business in motion overnight. It was a long thought process of everything I would need to be successful when I planned to launch my business to the world, and quickly picked up on the flow of how to run a business!

I am proud of all of the work that I have done on all of my clients, and even myself! My clients push me to try new things and expand my brand, and talents of what I can do, I am truly blessed for them!

When it comes to my services I want everyone to know the details of what my services are, and how to book accordingly! Also, questions are always accepted I would never want to leave any of my clients clueless about what they are paying for with their hard-earned money!

I am very genuine and honest when it comes to my work, and I let that be known to all of my clients because, I want them to feel sure about their decisions, and what works best for them!

What matters most to you?
What really matters most to me is how my clients feel. Constantly reassuring them, and making sure that their comfortable during their appointments is always my main goal from the conversation on booking, to them sitting in my chair!

I want my services to be top-notch every time a client comes to me.

Them being happy with their look is very important to me because, I know that we all have had an experience where a hairstyle we have wanted didn’t go as planned, and that can make a person very uneasy especially when your money and appearance are being put on the line!

We all deserve to be happy with our looks!
