Since enrollment opened for Lace Wig University, tickets for Lace Wig University LIVE! have been selling like crazy. Still, some of you are confused about who qualifies, so I recorded this video to answer that question for you.
You can watch it below.
At this live event, you'll get hands-on instruction, and you'll learn all about marketing, sales, pricing, and so much more for your wig business.
What would you do if you paid $900 for a wig from an Instagram Influencer, it didn't arrive, they blocked you, and posted your personal address on their social media profiles?
A few days ago, I read an article about how this exact scenario happened to a young lady. This lady ordered a wig for $900 and never received the wig.
You can read the full article here. I don't know who the influencer is or who the lady is. I just so happened to come across this article over the weekend.
I've heard countless stories from people attending my events or sliding in my DM's to tell me about situations like this from other people. Unfortunately, according to the article, this is happening a lot more with wigs.
Because of the wig shortage and the insane price increase, people are looking for solutions but are getting scammed. That's why it's so important to have integrity when going into business.
Here are some things that you can do so you don't fall victim to a scammer.
1) Do your research. A simple google search can reveal a lot about a company or an individual. If something doesn't feel right, don't do it.
2) If you're purchasing through Instagram, read the comments; although comments can be deleted, sometimes they don't get deleted and can reveal a lot about the company or individual.
3) Communicate clearly. Often issues like the one in the article can happen because of lack of communication. You may have an expectation the individual you're doing business with doesn't know about. Make sure you're communicating clearly what the expectations are.
4) Pay attention to the payment methods they're asking for. If they only accept payment one way, run, you should have options when making payments.
Don't just jump in head first; take your time and know what you're getting into before there's an exchange of any funds.
A few weeks ago, I was back home in Las Vegas about to go to bed when the John Oliver show just so happened to be on TV. Just as I was about to close my eyes to sleep, I saw that he was getting ready to do an entire segment on black hair.
I sat up immediately, paying very close attention because I was very interested in hearing what he would say about our hair. I mean, part of me was like, “Oh my gosh! Am I going to be offended?”
I didn't know what to expect because for so long black hair has been the topic of discussion in the workplace, not just from black people but also from white people or people of other ethnicities who are uncomfortable with the way we wear our hair.
Before I get into what he talked about in the video, I want to talk a bit about some of the struggles and things that we've gone through for so many years as black women when it comes to our hair. I spent nine and a half years in the United States Air Force, and in my time in the Air Force, it was always an issue with hair, not with me personally, but in general.
We had to follow Air Force Regulation 36-2903. That regulation had to be adhered to for you to remain compliant about your hair. Basically, you could not wear your hair in a “faddish” style.
The natural texture of black hair was considered a fad, so you couldn't wear your fro if you were going natural, for example. Braids were sometimes an issue, wearing a nice tapered short brush cut was an issue, and so were locs.
But in my mind, the question I always asked myself was, “What other ethnicity would be told that the natural texture of their hair is faddish?”
All of this comes from a simple lack of understanding of our hairstyles' cultural meaning. Have you ever experienced someone asking if they could touch your hair? Or maybe they make a snide comment like, “it's just nappy.” All of this comes from a lack of communication and understanding.
Okay, back to John Oliver because I want to give him and his writers credit for the research and love they put into their show concerning black hair and all the drama we have to deal with just to live in a world that completely disrespects our God-given hair at every point.
You can watch the show here.
His team did an incredible job doing the research, and they got it right. Our hair is not an ornament. Our hair is a cultural thing for us, and everyone in the world needs to understand that.
To have someone like John Oliver, who is not a black man, or a black woman, create a piece like this and nail it to me is absolutely amazing.
So thanks John, you made a difference, and I'm very thankful this issue hit your radar, and you chose to take action on it.
Is it possible to spend only $99 and make $10,000.00? I can't guarantee any amount, but I can tell you that having a skill means nothing if you don't know how to market your services.
One of my outstanding students shared that she had a significant change in her finances. “I did reach my goal of achieving my first $10,000 making lace wigs and charging my worth.” This student went through training I created for my Lace Wig Training System Students called “How To Make Your First $10,000 making Lace Wigs.“
This is the exact same training I'm giving you when you join me at my 1-Day Virtual Lace Wig Bootcamp.
Another student now charges $500 for her wigs and offers mobile services. Lastly, another student has seen a 100% increase in her income, and the list goes on.
You must understand the importance of marketing just as much as you understand your craft. The two go hand in hand. You can take the skills you learn at the 1-Day Virtual Lace Wig Bootcamp and create so many different revenue streams!
We're still getting back into the swing of things after having had COVID. Many of you have asked how I'm doing, and I'm happy to say that I'm doing better than ever!
On the first morning of my 3-Day Virtual Lace Wig Mastery Program, I decided to vlog and show you some footage from the event. It was truly an outstanding event.
I just couldn't stop smiling because just two weeks prior I could hardly finish a sentence, and there I was teaching for 3 days straight. God is sooo faithful!
We put our all into these events, and we always have so much fun. I love teaching, and I genuinely love seeing my students tag me in their work. Check out the pic below from a Lace Wig Mentorship Program Graduate, Nancy Jones!
I can't wait to train the next group of students for my next virtual class coming up on June 27, 2021. It's a 1-Day Virtual Lace Wig Bootcamp, and it's going to be a ton of fun!
Registration is open, and you're getting $607.95 worth of training for only $99! That's a steal!
Yep, you read that right. I was just as surprised as you when I read the article from Travel Pulse.
Two men at the Chennai Airport in India were caught trying to smuggle $400K in gold underneath their toupees and rectums 🤢.
Not only were they acting weird, but their hair also looked suspicious, so they were stopped and searched, and that's when they were exposed.
It's never okay to do anything illegal by any means, but the wigmaker in me thought for a minute, why didn't they make the wigs more realistic?
When you make an amazing wig, no one should be able to walk up to you and say, “Oh, that's a nice wig!”
That's not a compliment; a compliment would be more along the lines of, “Your hair is beautiful!” Wigs should be undetectable and unnoticeable.
There are some key tactics and techniques that help trick the eyes to make for a more realistic wig. These strategies are what I will be covering in my 3-Day Virtual Lace Wig Mastery Program. The dates are April 25-27, 2021, and you don't want to miss out.
The class is only $295 or 3 payments of $99. Click here for all of the details.
A little bit over a year ago I traveled over to India to do Ministry work, as well as hair vendor work! I visited several factories while in India from Chennai to Tirupati. I visited factories all over south India. In this video, I share with you some behind the scenes footage from one of the vendors I decided to add to the Ultimate Vendor list that I give to all who enroll in the 1-Day Virtual Lace Wig Bootcamp.
The hair at this particular factory was absolutely stunning! Be sure to listen carefully to the nuggets dropped in this video. Enjoy!
One of the most frequently asked questions I get is “How do you ventilate?” so I decided to record this video to show you how to do it step by step.
Ventilating a lace wig from scratch can be very frustrating if you don't know what you're doing. It's important to understand that what I'm teaching you in this video is the basis for everything else you're going to need to learn to make wigs from scratch. Be sure to practice as much as you can because practice makes permanent!
Yesterday during the 1-Day Virtual Lace Wig Bootcamp, I asked everyone to take a virtual selfie! LOL I laughed at myself, but decided to show you some of the videos of my amazing students took during the class!
We had a fantastic time, and I can't wait to do it all over again. Many people are hungry to learn how to ventilate, do repairs, learn about lace, lace wigs, and more, and I'm eager to share my knowledge, so I've already scheduled the next 1-Day Virtual Lace Wig Bootcamp for March 9, 2021 from 9am-4pm PST.
Just a heads up, this may be the last one for a while. I will also be filming the brand new Lace Wig Training System during that time, so there's a chance that if you don't make that one, you will miss out big time. Register here.
If you can't make it, the session will be recorded, and you will have lifetime access, so don't worry if you're not able to be there live.
Here's what you get when you register for the event:
You get an all-access pass for a full day with Marquetta Breslin in a live (not pre-recorded), no-hold-barred, “closed-door” bootcamp event. It all goes down tomorrow, Live on Zoom in the comfort of your home, join me from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m PST for a live event you'll never forget!
