By Raquelle “Rocki” Harris (Soruce: www.rollingout.com) – Maintaining dope hairstyles can be expensive, so business mogul and co-host of The Breakfast Club, Angela Yee, offers affordable products from Private Label Extensions. Available online and in stores, it’s the premier source for hair extensions, wigs and lashes. During the wholesale day in Detroit on Sunday, March 28, 2021, the entire line was available at discounted pricing. The event provided the everyday consumer with access to quality items that are normally exclusive to beauty industry professionals. Yee, who owns several properties in Detroit, intentionally brought a Private Label boutique to the Motor City this past February.
Yee’s partner and the CEO of Private Label, Mikey Moran, has been in the hair industry since 2012. The Atlanta-based company’s collaborations in Asia make it a direct source for hard-to-find items such as HD closures. More than $10,000,000 of its products have sold within the past two years.
Although she is excited about the expansion of her brand, Yee, who is of Afro-Caribbean and Asian heritage, spoke about the uptick in violence against Asians that has prompted #StopAsianHate. “I don’t like the division in the Black and the Asian community,” she said. “I know that Asian beauty supplies don’t treat people well. That’s a real issue. It’s also a cultural thing. … I have a problem with anybody that thinks it’s OK to beat somebody up. We’re all trying to fight against the same thing — white supremacy.”
She continued, “I would love if this could open up conversations in both communities for us to be supportive of each other. Let’s figure out how we can move forward and improve things for the future. … A lot of hate comes from ignorance.”
