Who is this exceptionally beautiful female entrepreneur with a joyous personality? She is no other than Kika Osunde, also known as Kika good hair

1. Tell me about yourself?

Born and raised in London, England known as Kika Osunde aka kika good hair, the youngest of an eccentric family of 4. I am also the other half of the quality conscious hair extension brand ‘Good Hair’. My friends call me Kiks, Keeks and Ronks. Fun, warm,fashionable and vibrant are the best words that describes me (kika good hair states). I love to travel, experiment with fashion and make up; I also enjoy watching romcoms (over and over again), documentaries and hanging out with my close family and friends.

 Kika good hair moved to Birmingham to attend University where I met my business partner Chioma Ikokwu who was studying Law. I, kika osunde graduated with a 2:1 degree in Business and Marketing. I have always had a keen interest in running a business and also love all things glitz and glamor, so it wasn’t long before we decided to combine these two passions and start a business.

2. Why and how did you go into the hair business and what are the struggles you encountered and how did you overcome them?

The most fortunate thing for me was that hair was already a way of life, rather than just a business idea. I, kika good hair used to experiment with so many different hairstyles, colors and looks that I quickly became an expert in weaves and wigs. Chioma ikokwu and and kika good hair had similar interests in fashion, hair and make-up. The common denominator for the both of us was how empowered and how happy we felt in relation to our whole appearance. We would commonly be asked “your hair is so nice! Where can I get it hair from?”. It only made sense to provide a product that reflected our passion but on an international scale. Kika good hair and Chioma Ikokwu started selling hair to close friends and family. As the business grew we developed it into a full fledged brand. Turning our hobby into a brand was the fun part, we took a lot of time to develop and create the brand. Firstly, we designed the logo to evoke the sense of glamour and luxury we wanted the brand to stand for. From the italic style of the font to the colors chosen (white and gold), everything was selected to build the brand personality. Kika good hair and Chioma ikokwu started to think strategically about how to take Good Hair from just a brand to more of an overall experience. Kika good hair and chioma ikokwu invested money into sleek high-end packaging to create a luxury experience – which has now become the core of the Good Hair philosophy. Then through social media and self -promotion, it became an international hit among women looking for great quality, fabulous hair.

The key to our success at the time was social media. Facebook, in particular, played a huge part as we reached a following of over 135,000 fans in just 2 years.  It was a great platform to promote the hair, ourselves and provide direct personal contact to our clients. This allowed them to feel valued and make the brand feel more accessible and approachable. This wasn’t an easy journey as we had to constantly work around the clock to engage clients all over the world which started to take a toll on my health. I started getting lumps all on my body from stress, from lack of sleep and exhaustion. I struggled with having a good work life balance whilst keeping the Facebook page exciting with new feeds and updates– it took a lot of time and energy as it was just the two of us (kika good hair and chioma ikokwu) at the time. Learning that every business has opening hours, I was able to strike a good work life balance which was my only challenge at the time.
