Turn a bad hair day from boring to beautiful!
I am Josette "Lovie" Stewart, 17 year old owner of JBandz Headbands. My mom and I absolutely love to wear headbands, but we were bored with the common elastic, solid color headbands. My mom kept hunting through stores unable to find ones we wanted til one day she said, "you should just make your own". I wanted something that was stylish and I wanted cloth...so I began making my own. It started with me making them by hand, my family wearing them and posting on social media, that I then decided to start selling them. After a few weeks of sales over my summer break I was able to purchase my very own sewing machine which moved production from a 20 minute hand process to a 5 minute production process.
I now seek various fabric types to create fashionable headbandz that can be worn at the gym, to school or a weekend out with friends. I chose to donate a portion of the proceeds to the "Alive on Purpose" Suicide Prevention organization and hope to inspire other teens to follow their dreams.
