Rising Stars: Meet Jameicia Moore

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jameicia Moore.

Hi Jameicia, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today.
I am originally from North Carolina, my family moved to St. Louis when my dad was stationed overseas, he is a marine. My mom would send me back to North Carolina every summer to be with my family.

That’s when I started to grow a passion for hair, hair care, and cooking.

I absolutely love cooking that’s my first love and my second love is a hair and properly caring for hair.

Alright, 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?
It definitely hasn’t been a smooth transition, I worked for USPS for 9 years until I was comfortable and financially able to walk away. I ran into issues with finding the perfect location for manifest braids and I also started working on my food truck which has been a rollercoaster because of COVID. COVID has delayed permits, titles, and licensing needed to get the proper work done to launch

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I specialize in proper protective hairstyles and I also cater at the moment. I am known for never sitting still, giving people beautiful braids, and feeding them soulful food.

Networking and finding a mentor can have such a positive impact on one’s life and career. Any advice?
My advice for networking would be to not be afraid to talk to others. People have been in your shoes and they’re willing to help the next person start their journey. When I started back doing hair full time, I reached out to other stylists for advice.

Since I am currently working on my food truck, manifest STL, I have reached out to other food truck owners, gone to shows, and reached out to a local known chef and owner of Love At First Bite chef Jason. He has given me the tools and continues to mentor me daily
