ABOUT KATIA BAKER
My name is Katia Baker I am a Wig designer. I create luxury wigs and provide medical wigs for women and men who suffer from hair loss. Some wigs I build and some wigs I make completely from scratch.
Who inspires you in your area of expertise?
Someone who inspires me businesswise is Allonzo Arnold, one of Beyoncé‘s wig suppliers.
I absolutely love how far he’s come in such a short amount of time and I adore his personality and the way he connects with his following.
What are significant obstacles in your industry as an urban creative? How have you been able to push through these obstacles in your industry?
Right now what we struggle with the most is exposure we have everything ready but we do not have a large following giving our business exposure.
What we have been doing is traditional word-of-mouth, marketing. social media marketing, etc.
Share a great moment or accomplishment in your career?
The best moment of my career is when I was able to relocate back home with our family and open up my very first public store front.
What advice would you give to an aspiring creative who wants to thrive in your industry?
Don’t give up when it gets difficult, that’s just the beginning, there’s no easy way to be successful. Don’t always take shortcuts. Keep pushing and surround yourself by people who have the same mindset and goals as you.
