Ebony got her first taste of entrepreneurship as a teenager. Born and raised in a tough Detroit neighborhood, Ebony and her mother often faced periods of financial uncertainty as a child.
Things started to improve when Ebony was in high school and her mom started her own business. It was then that Ebony decided she wanted to follow in her mother’s footsteps and start her own business. She realized that she would never be rich working for someone else. While it wasn’t always easy, Ebony is grateful that her childhood made her the strong and ambitious woman she is today.
Ebony made her debut in music despite having no previous connections in the industry. She wrote and published songs for iconic musicians like Faith Evans before becoming a famous stylist.
Her stint in the fashion world has been convincing; Record managers have often asked Ebony to style their clients after admiring her personal style. After a few years of turning down offers, Ebony decided that a career in styling could be a blessing and finally said yes. Since then she has styled high profile celebrities like Halsey, Camila Cabello, Britney Spears, Nicole Scherzinger and Kanye West.
These days, Ebony still works with the stars, but that’s not what she wants her fame to be. As a black woman, Ebony experiences the struggle to succeed in an industry dominated by white people. Talented black creatives are always paid less than their white counterparts.
Ebony’s goal is to continue fighting for equality for all of her POC peers in the creative world. She wants to create platforms and avenues for black creatives to show their talent to the world. Ebony is always happy to share her resources with her fellow entrepreneurs, from fighting for equal pay to balancing mental health.
