Here’s the story of a young and aspiring entrepreneur who has launched a new, luxury hair extensions brand.
Limelight Extensions, founded by 23-year old Miranda Jade Plater, offers women of all backgrounds, from corporate powerhouses to college students, quality hair to reflect their personality and lifestyle.
Exuding as much confidence as the brand she founded, Detroit’s Miranda Jade Plater strived to follow in her mother’s footsteps by declaring that she would be an executive by 25.
However, by the time she entered college at Bowling Green University in 2008, things changed. The economy was at an all-time low with unemployment rising everyday. So, she set out to create her own opportunity to fulfill her childhood dream of success.[ Also Read: Clinton Initiative to Train Women Entrepreneurs ]
“The recent recession hit my hometown Detroit hard, which led to Detroit filing for bankruptcy, so it’s important for me to create my own destiny as an entrepreneur,” said Miranda Jade Plater, Limelight Extensions co-founder. “I wanted to create a company that guarantees quality hair for all women and helped me give back to my community.”
This launch is accompanied by a sweepstakes with media partner BlackHairMedia.com offering one $300 limelightextensions.com gift certificate accessible to everyone who follows Limelight Extensions on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or Instagram between August 12th – September 13th.
