Local Moreno Valley Young Entrepreneurs Open Up Hair Supply Store

Moreno Valley Entrepreneurs

By Naomi K. Bonman

For some time now, many African Americans have complained that there were no Black owned hair supply stories and that the Asians were dominating the hair industry. Through the midst of the complaints, no one was doing anything about it until now.  Two young entrepreneurs from Moreno Valley, California decided to quit talking and to be about it!

The Davis sisters, Kayla (19) and Keonna (21), have opened KD Haircare Supply located at 24453 Sunnymead Blvd. Although the city has a high population of Blacks, there is not a large mass of Black owned businesses, so KD Haircare Supply is definitely a major milestone for both the city and for other millennials who aspire to work for themselves and making a living while doing it.

We salute these two! If you’re in the area make sure you stop by and tell them that Westside Story Newspaper sent you. Also be sure to follow them on the social networks @kdhaircarellc or visit www.kdhaircaresupply.com.
