Owner of Her Mane Seduction- Ty Fountain talks WEAVES, WIGS & BOSS Women
What sets your hair company apart from the 100’s of other companies we see popping up everywhere?
Yes, the market is flooded with hair companies all claiming to offer the “best hair on the market” lol. Her Mane Seduction offers our customers with a 100% satisfaction guarantee and 1 year warranty on all of our hair. We offer this because we stand by our product and most of our orders come from repeat customers and referrals. Additionally, our brand was founded by hair stylist and cosmetology instructors who can easily identify quality hair from non-quality hair. Unlike other companies, our hair comes directly from the source of origin and honey let me tell you, it wasn’t easy getting hair from all 4 locations. It took us about 2 years to come up with a way to get raw hair directly from the sources and sell it at a price that works for all of our college students and single mothers of the world.
What’s your advice for other women who aspire to be entrepreneurs?
My advice to ladies who want to become entrepreneurs is first of all, believe in yourself. Make sure that you have a good product that you’ve taken the time to develop and that you are in complete control of, and make smart decisions! Don’t let anyone trick you into doing an investment that you don’t believe in. Stay focused, follow your heart, believe in yourself and know that it will not happen overnight. A successful entrepreneur knows good business takes dedication and time.
What are your thoughts on hair weaves and extensions?
I absolutely love wigs and weaves!!! I’ve worn both for years as protective styles. I love the versatility of wearing different styles without having to commit to them and I often change styles (wigs) twice a day just depends on what I have to do that day.
We see you in this incredible textured ’fro. Tell us how that came together.
The Afro hair look was achieved by using Her Mane Seductions Brazilian Kinky Curly texture in 16″ & 18″. It blends perfectly with my real hair.
Is your own hair relaxed or natural?
I am 100% natural and have been for 26 years. My natural hair is about 18″ long which I credit to my protective styles and properly taking care of my natural hair.
What are some of your go-to hair care products?
For my natural hair I love sulfate free products and oils. For my weaves or wigs I use Moroccan oils, Paul Mitchell and organix products, too.
Do you have any hair inspirations?
My hairstyle inspirations are Mary J. Blige, Rihanna, Lela James, Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez and Solange
Please share some of your favorite beauty tips with the H.M.S consumers.
Always drink a lot of water, take care of your natural hair under your weave/wigs, workout, keep your spirit happy and love yourself because at the end of the day you have to look at yourself in the mirror and be proud of the person looking back at you.
What is your daily skin care regimen and what products do you use on your skin?
I always make sure to have a very clean and moisturized face. I take my makeup off with, believe it or not, Vaseline. I use a daily skin prep scrub and active daily moisturizer by Dermalogica. I take a lot of steam showers, that keeps my skin very hydrated, and I try to stay stress free.
Do you have any daily affirmations that encourage you?
I start my day with my 8 favorite gospel songs and pray for peace serenity and happiness throughout my day. I ask for forgiveness for anything that I may have been ungrateful for in the previous day and thank GOD in advance for the things he will teach me in the coming days.
