From Esquire

On a frosty morning in January, Esquire rolled up to watch adidas shoot the promo campaign for Arsenal’s new 20/21 home kit.

The lesson is: be careful what you wish for.

Two KC teen entrepreneurs could be the next big hit in KC’s history of beauty businesses success

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The future of Kansas City’s beauty business could be in the hands of two Kansas City teenage girls.

Best friends Chondra Walters, 14, and 15-year old Makaila Traylor launched a beauty company last month called MC Cosmeticare. They got the idea to go into business because both of their mothers are entrepreneurs. The mothers helped their girls understand and complete the process of starting a business, along with offering some motherly advice.

“She informed us on the essentials and how to take care of ourselves when it comes to being business partners and starting our own business,” Traylor said.

The young entrepreneurs are walking in the shadow of some heavy-hitters in the beauty business in Kansas City. Longtime Kansas City residents are well acquainted with Blankenship Beauty and Barber supply in the 18th and Vine District.
