Inspiring Conversations with Orell’e Hollis of B’Original Collection

Today we’d like to introduce you to Orell’e Hollis.

Hi Orell’e, 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 backstory with our readers?
Hello! My name is Orell’e Hollis (pronunciation R-E-L)! I’m so excited to share my story! The Beauty Industry has been my passion since high school! After spending money with stylists and was unsatisfied with my hair, my business sense kicked in!

In 2013, I made my first lace closure wig and I received so much positive feedback! I developed a passion for hair extensions and making wig units. I wanted to target women who had hair damage like myself or just needed a quick protective style! I started making wigs by hand using hair extensions and lace closures provided by clients. In 2015 I began to sell hair extensions, which lead me to making my own custom wigs for clients! The support has been amazing and I’m so thankful! Ever

Since 2015, I haven’t looked back! I’m Thankful for the continuous support which lead me to expand my beauty brand to opening my 2nd Business Bodied By O Contouring Service!

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?
Being a business owner hasn’t been easy! I always worked a full-time job and operated my business; finding a balance between the two has always been a challenge! There have been so many ups and down with not having sales or no support! I continued to push because I know have a purpose! As time proceeded God put the right clientele in front of my business! My work and customer service attracted more clientele! I realized women really needed my services, they loved my work and I continued to push myself even when I felt like giving up!

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?

We’d love to hear about how you think about risk taking?
When I first started my hair business I was afraid of taking risk and scared of failure. Overtime, I realized taking business risks wasn’t a bad thing. I visualized taking business risks as making a wise investment in myself and my business. Yes, I have taken financial risks and risks to continue to elevate my hair quality. Honestly, as a business owner, you will never stop taking risks as long as you want bigger and better for your brand.
