Meet Shamora Barnard of Goddess Garden

Today we’d like to introduce you to Shamora Barnard. She and her team share her story with us below.

Shamora B. aims to introduce exclusive hair designs, ingenious styling techniques, and inventive beauty tips. Shamora B, the woman behind the brand, began braiding hair at 12 years old and landed her first professional job as a stylist in a salon at 14. Pursuing her interests further, Shamora took her talents to the renowned Aveda Institute, allowing her to sharpen her skills and expand her knowledge about hair care, products, styling, cut, color and many other significant aspects. Such skills allowed her to work for Selden Beylouni and Erin Sevin Vee, notable stylists in the Atlanta market.

She also worked at Salon Ramsey, a distinguished salon in the heart of Atlanta while obtaining management experience. Her creative brilliance is what makes Shamora B. and Goddess Essentials Brand an emerging hair enterprise offering high-quality essentials to preserve the feminine beauty. The Goddess Garden and The Goddess Essentials product line, represent an ideal synthesis of cosmopolitan edge and womanhood. Shamora B.’s desire to cater to women extends beyond the hair and beauty industry.

In conjunction with her blossoming enterprise, she incorporates her unprecedented level of social consciousness & care for the black community. She participates in change initiatives like donating to local projects for women & children. Shamora B. is equally committed to the empowerment of the community, family, and black women. These principles are the foundation of The Goddess Garden; aspiring to make every woman feel chic, maintain healthy hair and remain empowered.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
There are always challenges when stepping out on your own, and going against the norms. Funding is the biggest struggle. My clients are amazing, and I appreciate every single one of them. It is more about larger investments that would help increase our reach and empower women in the community.

Another struggle I experience as a momtrentrepreneur… I would love to have a team, to help me bring the vision of The Goddess Garden and Goddess Essentials to life. I believe in the proverb if you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go far go together. I am always keeping my heart and eyes open for new allies.
