Jessica Ogonor

Founder, The Suite Service

Built on the belief that hair care should be inclusive, the Suite Service enables organizations to provide equal access to grooming services for individuals with highly textured hair. The company sources exceptional stylists and barbers and hosts conveniently located events to bring them directly to the community.

“The initial Coalition to Back Black Businesses grant allowed us to secure a new collegiate account, onboard service professionals, and cover administrative and personnel expenses. Mentorship has given us the tools to tell a more engaging story to meaningfully connect with our audience. The enhancement grant will allow us to increase outreach efforts and secure new institutional accounts, finish developing our website, and hire support.”
