Project Description

 Hello beautiful, thank you for stopping by. 

My name is Tiffany Shelly. I am a licensed cosmetologist restoring and maintaining natural hair for over 12 years. I am a mom of two amazing girls and founded the beauty tech company, Last Minute Hair. 

So what is Last Minute Hair, and why do we matter? Glad you ask.
 Last Minute Hair is the first on-demand delivery service for beauty-related goods through a mobile app. After years of being fed up with traveling from one beauty supply store to the other in an attempt to find specific products, I said enough was enough. I decided to make an upgrade that the beauty industry so desperately needed because I knew I wasn't an isolated case.

  • No more wondering what store is carrying a specific product.
  • No more over spending on products
  • No more lost packages from online orders 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My clients would often call me complaining that the store I recommended to them not having the hair/ product I suggested, or not being able to make it to the store make due to work hours. I would then have to channel my inner Ms. Cleo and guess what store would have what they needed.

There had to be a better way, soI spent the last two years formulating a system that would rid beauty consumers of the cumbersome feeling of not knowing where to go for their hair and cosmetic supplies.

Last Minute Hair makes it easier for beauty consumers to locate and buy any beauty-related product from their local beauty supply stores and deliver it within one hour or less.

Not only can you get your hair and cosmetic products you need wherever you are, you can get it whenever you need it with little effort. 

 

Do you know this pain?

I need my hair done

 

I have made some significant progress in the company. But I am looking for capital to accomplish a few things:

 

 

Last Minute Hair is a registered trademark entity. We are members of the U.S. Chambers of Commerce, WBE (Women-Owned Business Enterprise) Certified, and first place winner of the Black Girl Ventures pitch competition. Last Minute Hair has also been published in Hype Hair Magazine, Femfounders Magazine, and Chitown Black. It has piqued partnerships alongside notable beauty companies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My goal is to raise $100,000 to streamline this company over the next 6 months. I have met my first milestone of $500, and my next is $1,000, and this is where you come in. Your pledge into my company will help me get to my next goal, and every bit counts. I have listed a few tier rewards in exchange for your gracious support. I am offering a lifetime membership on the Last Minute Hair platform with a one-time payment of $25, $50, or $65. I wanted a way to give back as we grow. As you sow into me, I plan to sow a seed into another local beauty businesses starting in Chicago and surrounding areas. The milestone breakdown goes as follows:

$500- Last Minute Hair will sponsor one local beauty supply store
$1,000 - Last Minute Hair will sponsor 2 local beauty supply stores
$2,500 - Last Minute Hair will sponsor 5 local beauty supply stores
$10,000- Last Minute Hair will sponsor 8 local beauty supply stores and five small beauty brands.
$60,000- Last Minute Hair will sponsor 12 local beauty supply stores and ten small beauty brands.
$100,000 - Last Minute Hair will sponsor 50 local beauty supply stores and 50 small beauty brands

I have reach my first milestone with 10 lifetime members, and I am looking for an additional 490+ wanting to be apart of this movement. 

With your help, I cannot only acquire the capital needed to fund Last Minute Hair, but we can also take a step forward towards rebuilding our communities while assisting with the scalability and growth of other beauty businesses and creating more jobs. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OUR MISSION: Shop Local!

Our mission is to stimulate economic growth within communities large and small by making it easier for beauty consumers to shop from their local beauty suppliers. Through our mobile app, beauty consumers can locate, buy, and have delivered all their beauty-related goods in three simple steps. Our philosophy is when you look good, you feel good, and looking good shouldn't be a hassle to obtain. Help me disrupt the market and level the playing field for small beauty businesses nationwide.

Your beauty products. On your time.

 

What I will cover with the $100,000?

- Operational cost: This includes upgrades to the system and setting up automation.

- Payroll: As we get closer to launch, it will require hiring additional staff. I currently have five team members in the software development department. I will need to fill positions for Customer Relations, Sales, and drivers as immediate hires.

- Marketing: I will need to continue to educate the market about the service of Last Minute Hair and will need to increase my marketing to do so. That along with your exceptional word of mouth recommendations and sharing of this platform, this will take over like wildfire.

Together we can do this, so take a look at what reward would be most beneficial to you and make a pledge today. If you just love this idea and would like to just show support, you can select to donate to our goal. I will keep you updated on our progress. I also plan to have some significant bonuses for my lifetime members. You all are my V.I.P., who believe in my mission from day one, and I want to make sure I continually pour back into you the way you were willing to do for me. Thank you again for stopping by, and don't forget to share this campaign with five family and friends. Together we can Slay!
