Meet Mama Gold

Olunife - founder of MyHairGold

 

Someone called me "Mama Gold" on Instagram and I loved it, so I'm keeping it. Hi I'm Mama Gold, real name Olunife Adeyemi. I know that's a mouth-full. My friends and family call me Nife, which no, is not pronounced like knife. The easiest way for most people to pronounce it is NeeFee with two long E's,and I actually like that. If you know how to really pronounce my name, then sorry you had to read all of this:) Wait, they say women in business need to stop saying sorry. Ok sorry not sorry. :) 

I'm what you can call a "lazy natural" (working on doing better). I've been growing out my natural hair for the past two and a half years. Sometimes I actually work at it to take care of it and sometimes I don't. I needed a way to rock a natural looking hairstyle and some of my favorite looks without spending hours doing it or having a hairstylist spends hours doing it (ouch and I'm tired!). I also wanted diversity with looks that flatter my style. I found that a lot of my friends wanted that too. We also want to rock different hairstyles we can switch out without going to hairstylists or taking forever to take out. Flexibility, Diversity and Luxury Hair. That's why I created MyHairGold. It's the answer to my hairstyle prayers, and I believe MyHairGold will answer yours too. 

Here's my third person, "official" bio. Since you came this far, you might as well read the rest. Thanks love. Shop around and enjoy.
