Today we’d like to introduce you to Jessica Kidd.
Hi Jessica, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
I got started in the beauty industry over 17 years ago. I chose Cosmetology as a trade in high school after always being around my aunt and stepmother in the salon. I loved the culture of a beauty salon. The fragrance of hairspray and the happiness women felt getting pretty intrigued me. I knew early on I wanted to make women feel and look pretty. After high school, I received my Cosmetology license and shortly after my degree in PR from Morgan State University. I use my degree everyday to build my brand and cultivate a lifestyle that women want to feel a part of and leave empowered!
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
This journey has definitely had its challenges but with the support of family, friends, dedicated customers and most importantly God, I made it! Relocating to Atlanta to learn more about the hair industry was probably the biggest struggle. Being in an unfamiliar place with no family or friends for support was very challenging. I moved at a time when I was trying to find my niche, start my brand and grow personally and professionally. I learned so much about life and business during those grassroots years. I was chasing a dream and financed my dream using all of my savings. I had to travel back home to Baltimore often to continue servicing my client base to stay afloat in Atlanta to make my dreams a reality. Although moving to a different state was the most challenging, it was necessary. It built character and activated a hustle in me so deep that I am forever impacted.

How do you define success?
I would define success as setting out to accomplish something and achieving it. It is a personal commitment to yourself and possibly to others. For me, I feel most successful when I have made a positive impact in someone else’s life.
