Life & Work with Jamaya Hunt

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jamaya Hunt.

Hi Jamaya, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Honestly, I can say starting a hair business with no help was hard. I started out doing hair in Dublin, GA 31021. And I’ve come a long way with doing hair and teaching it to myself. I started doing hair in late 2019. I was doing closure sew-ins with no knowledge. I didn’t know how to braid or thread the needle, and I paid my sister to braid my hair down and more. Also, I didn’t know the first thing about installing wigs, the laces, or the different textures of hair.

But, by 2020, I promised myself to get better with no help. Day and night on Youtube watching videos and practicing on myself. 2021, I knew almost everything down to lace, textures, the proper way of protecting the hair under wigs, and more. In early 2022, I mastered everything! This was a long journey. It takes time, and patience and that’s something I had to learn. I am a self-taught hairstylist. Now my brand is spreading all across Georgia!

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
No, it hasn’t always been a smooth road. My struggles were scalp braiding and getting the lace to match. 9 times out of 10 it won’t always be the best but I was willing to learn from my mistakes.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I started out doing just wigs, crochets, faux locs, and sew-ins. But, now focus more on wigs and sew-ins. I’m most proud of melting the lace on wigs, frontal, and closures. Something that sets me apart from others is that I can specialize in more hair categories. I’m like a 2-in-1 hairstylist.

The crisis has affected us all in different ways. How has it affected you and any important lessons or epiphanies you can share with us?
The Covid-19 crisis did slow my business down. I wanted my clients and myself to be safe. Because at the time I was doing my hair in my mother’s house. So, I also had to look at my family’s health.
