After being rejected for service at five separate salons due to her coily textured hair for Stephanie LaFlora realized that something was terribly wrong with the beauty industry. Driven to solve the problems of her own customer experience and already a serial entrepreneur, storyteller, marketer, and creator, Stephanie founded Crownhunt to make life easier for people with curly hair while helping under-resourced entrepreneurs thrive.
Crownhunt picked up momentum when Stephanie teamed up with co-founder Ryan Holdeman and they used their backgrounds in data-driven product development to re-launch Crownhunt as the digital marketplace for textured hair.
