These Two Sisters Are The Youngest Beauty Supply Owners In California

Sisters Keonna and Kayla Davis took their first steps in the entrepreneurial world a little over a year ago in March of 2015. They started by selling hair products online via their website. They originally considered it more of a side-gig, while they searched for jobs in the area. After coming up empty with the job search, the pair decided to open their own hair supply store at the prompting of their mother.

KD Haircare Supply was born. KD Haircare Supply is located at 24453 Sunnymead Blvd (inside Sundance Plaza) Moreno Valley.

Neither Keonna nor Kayla had any experience operating their own company and no business classes under their belts. But that didn’t stop them though, replacing traditional schooling with intense research, they learned the foundations of running a business.

“We researched and attended hair expos for top products for natural hair,” says Kayla. “We learned about pricing online from local competitors and from viewing blogs for hot products and the average pricing for those products.”

As of yet, the store doesn’t have any employees, but family members pitch in from time to time. Kayla and Keonna’s 16-year-old brother, Kevin, helps out by keeping the business’ website up to date, along with inventory and advertising for the store.

When asked how they stay focused on their business rather than the usual social activities ladies their age might partake in, Kayla sums it up this way: “The community expects us to do good so they inspire us, and we have a great role model in our mom.”
