Meet Kierra Flowers of Key2Sleek

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kierra Flowers. 

Hi Kierra, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
My name is Kierra Flowers I am from Kansas City, Missouri! I could write a book about faith, grace, and hope that God has placed upon my life but I’ll just say THANK YOU instead! Everything may look like a piece of cake but it was definitely long nights, hard work, confusion & let’s not forget where & who I actually wanted to be. 

It all started after high school graduation in 2013. I’ve always had excellent grades & graduated number 3 in my class. Picking colleges & receiving scholarships became the norm during my senior year! 

However, after my first year at The University of Kansas, I immediately knew “College/Universities are not for everyone” I returned home & decided to do Dental assisting in 2015. After so long I decided that was not for me either! I loved it but something just did not sit right within after graduation & working in the field 

I took a break from everything to try and figure out what I really wanted to do & who I really was! 

In September of 2019 I started my own business Key2Sleek LLC! Selling a variety of hair products, hot tools, and accessories! This was something I loved! 

Providing one of the best edge controls & wax sticks for my city was like a shocker to me! I continuously sold out & was working hard! 

I launched my website in October of 2020 and things started to speed up more! With “out of state” orders going out every single day! I was still in shock! Titanium flat irons & wax stick were sold in a beauty supply store called “Beauty Icon” & I’m still appalled by that! A huge shout out to my close friends for keeping me grounded! It was not easy! 

However, I still just was not happy! I wanted more, I wanted to do more! I made a final decision that I would stop selling these products! 

In March of 2021, I moved to Dallas, Texas & even brought all of the products I had on hand with me! I started promoting in Dallas and literally sold out of everything the first month here! Another shock to me, so why would I want to quit? I was drained from it all & I wanted to be into something that I enjoyed! Not saying I did not enjoy it, but again, that was not for me! 

In July of 2021, just a few months into a new state! I started Esthetician school! Let’s talk about it! Another friend and I decided we wanted to start esthetician school right in the middle of summer! I don’t know why we started school right in the middle of Summer knowing we did not want to sit in class on hot summer nights! But we did! It was definitely a struggle and we were pushed to get through those 10 months without stopping! 

Fast forwards to now April/May of 2022! 

I will now be graduating from one of the Nine “Ogle” campuses in Texas & will be a licensed Esthetician 

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
It was never a smooth road for me! Some things went smoother than the rest but it was never easy! Entrepreneurship is not easy at all! Especially when you are trying to please customers/clients! 

I’m always in a constant battle with myself if I should go harder or if I’m doing just fine! I always choose to go harder! That has always been my mindset! Some of my struggles come from overthinking or doubting myself, which is normal! 

As an esthetician now I love what I do! Now that I am close to the finish line with school! I might bring back a couple of those hair products my customers are asking about! 

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about Key2Sleek LLC?
Well as everyone knows now, my business started off with hair products, hot tools & accessories! 

I am still in the Beauty Industry, but doing something totally different that does not deal with hair! 

I provide skin treatments and facials that are designed to promote beautiful, healthy skin. I also specialize in specific treatments, such as waxing, massages, chemical peels and want to perfect my craft with lash extensions & brows 

Networking and finding a mentor can have such a positive impact on one’s life and career. Any advice? 

One thing I will say about networking is, it can happen at any given moment and to stay prepared! Moving to Dallas I noticed I am a walking business, whether it’s wearing a shirt with my logo on it or just having business cards ready to pass out! Everyone supports one another here and I love it! 

One of my biggest life lessons are:

Do not worry about friends & family supporting you! Once you start networking a complete stranger will put their trust in you, & help you live up to your goals!
