Meet Angela Fité, CEO and Founder of Kinkistry

 

GP: Tell us about your business?

K: Kinkistry is a kinky curly extensions brand dedicated to inclusivity for all curl types. 

GP:What is your WHY? 

K: My why is to help advance the natural hair movement by creating products that help WOC show up as their authentic selves, no matter the occasion.

GP:How did you get started?

K:I was a consumer of kinky curly extensions and couldn't find textures that actually resemble tightly coiled hair. This need birthed Kinkistry. 

GP: What "Not so pretty" obstacles have you faced while on your grind? 

K:Where shall I start, there have been many.  When I first started Kinkistry it was difficult to gain the trust of consumers. An e-commerce extensions company was novel back then. Most women went to a beauty supply store to touch and try on hair.  Convincing my ideal customers to purchase hair sight unseen was a challenge I had to conquer to become competitive.

 

GP: What quote or mantra do you live by?

K: Delay is not denial.

GP: What does grinding pretty mean to you?

K: Bossing up and making it happen with a heart of gratitude, even during the difficult times. Be grateful during good and bad times because bad experiences help to cultivate the blueprint of your vision.

Where do I even begin to describe the genius and creativity of Academy Award winning costume designer Ruth Carter! Every time I have painted her face, just being in her presence inspires me. Witnessing the wonderful work she’s done from numerous Spike Lee films, Amistad, and of course her amazing work in Black Panther movies to visual art just laying around her home. Hearing Ruth’s story was so inspiring. Hearing about her upbringing, an HBCU graduate, and how she navigated through her career. More importantly, how she knew that she was destined for greatness. How she manifested that through amazing storytelling and creativity. She’s paved a way for many others to follow and has set the bar high! There are so many things to admire and I’m truly honored to share this interview!
