Meet Trailblazer Moriah Holland

Today we’d like to introduce you to Moriah Holland.

Moriah, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I started LazyRogue dreadlock extensions about 5 years ago, I had dreads at the time and wanted length but couldn’t find anything quality, so I made my own extensions and decided to see if anyone else wanted to buy my product, it really took off about 3 years ago and I’ve been making dreads every day since for my wonderful clients. I’m currently based on Etsy, all my work is custom and I work side by side as much as possible over the internet with the client to make sure they get the dreadlocks they imagined! I try to keep things as natural as possible all my hair is locally sourced from salons they are raw human hair ponytails that I make into dreads so nothing is imported it’s all locally made with love. I stay away from wax and use henna dyes and essential oils when making the locs. Every set is handmade and unique! I do ship worldwide and love making people feel beautiful all over the world, nothing is better than clients coming to me after they install their dreads and telling me how beautiful they feel and hearing their stories it makes my job worth it!

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
There has been a few bumps in the road, prior to starting my company, I was on the search for a job but never had much luck with getting anything I had just moved out and was in a new city, so I decided to start my own career, although my company didn’t just take off it took about 2 years for things to really take off everything prior was stop and go luckily my husband has always supported,helped, and pushed me to promote my product helping me to come up with new ideas and methods to do things, I don’t know what I would do without him!

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about LazyRogue Dreadlocks – what should we know?
I make luxury dreadlock extensions, many people ask well why luxury why use that word, well my product is not imported the hair is local and unprocessed so it is softer than the average human hair extension that is imported from Asia where more grade a human hair comes from which is chemically processed and usually not a nice texture that matches up with a lot of peoples hair. My hair is very soft and fine hair that has not been touched by mystery chemicals. Also, I am known for my knotty natural look when it comes to making dreadlocks my shops saying is ‘the imperfectly perfect dreadlock’ My goal is to make the dreadlock look so natural that nobody can tell that it’s an extension!

So much of the media coverage is focused on the challenges facing women today, but what about the opportunities? Do you feel there are any opportunities that women are particularly well positioned for?
For any women who want to start their own business, go for it. Don’t allow ‘no’ or ‘can’t’ get in your way. Believe in yourself and go after what you want.
