We had the good fortune of connecting with Jerissa Hall and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jerissa, what inspires you?
Nothing inspires me more than accomplishments. I love when I complete something rather it’s something brand new or something that I figured out how to make it better; the feeling of getting it done is second to none. High Horse Hair Store LLC has given me all kinds of things to figure out. I had plenty of things to learn like registering my LLC, website design, marketing, accounting, and so much more. I had lots of accomplishments some bigger than others but all extremely inspirational! Just knowing that if I set my mind to it, I can achieve it. In this day and age, the internet provides so many resources you can literally accomplish anything you want.
What should our readers know about your business?
High Horse Hair Store is an online beauty supply store, with a focus on hair extensions and wigs. I have always loved hairstyling but never made of career out of it. Back in 2014 I went down south for the first time and noticed a huge difference in the beauty supply stores. I saw items that I only seen on tv with prices lower than I could even imagine. That drove me to the idea of an online beauty supply store because many of them did not have website. When I went back to Iowa, I no longer had access to any of it. I want those who live in areas without adequate access to a beauty supply stores to still be able to have up to date hairstyles at fair prices. In some areas they simply don’t sale certain items, or if they do the quality is low and the price is high. We have had or fair share of ups and downs for sure but in the end, we strive to become everyone’s favorite hair store.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I freaking love this city! I moved here back in February of this year and the only thing I would change is moving here sooner! I love the beltline and Ponce City Market. Tacomac has the best roasted lemon pepper wings I could eat them every day. I still haven’t figured out which I like more Piedmont Park or Centennial Olympic. Midtown has my heart but downtown is my home lol. The restaurants and shopping in Atlantic Station are also something worth checking out. I can’t forget about the Atlanta Hawks and Falcons walking to games is something I never got to experience before moving here. Oh and the rooftop day parties, they never disappoint.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Oh man I definitely would have to shoutout my husband Cory Hall. He absolutely loves IT so naturally with High Horse Hair Store being an online store he has given me so much advice and guidance on this journey. He created an app for High Horse Hair Store and I made the website. He’s actually in the process of remaking the app, while working his regular job, and helping me with whatever may come my way. He even taught me how to code items myself for the site!
