Several Namibian influencers and celebrities are seen rocking the thick bouncy ‘Cina Hair’ on their Instagram pages. ‘Cina Hair’ currently is the plug for best quality wigs and wig styling. Founded 26-year-old personality entrepreneur, Celma Hamunyela, ‘Cina Hair’ was born out of the continuous hunger to succeed and grow. The name Cina is derived from her mother’s name Francina.
The young entrepreneur says starting her business wasn’t easy but her positive perspective on things seemed right at the time.
“Everyone knows how much I have invested in the hair industry (from setting trends of luxury hairstyles, wigs etc ) I did that all by myself and only for myself,” she says.
As a woman Celma is motivated by different women from different backgrounds working towards bettering themselves, building wealth and becoming full blown creatives. Celma is not only a founder of ‘Cina Hair’ but also a self-taught cosmetologist and holds an honours degree in Business Administration, currently pursuing her masters.
Before venturing into the hair industry, Celma worked with multiple huge brands such as Air Namibia, MTC campaigns and Cora Awards just to mention a few but one brand that contributed most to her career path was Divine Virgin hair boutique owned by her best friend’s elder sister.
“The brands I have worked for throughout my career played a huge role in advancing my talent. All I know now is the luxury of owning good quality hair products. That’s how much I love doing what I do now and what forced me to share what I know while at the same time monetizing it,” Celma says.
The official launch of ‘Cina Hair’ hasn’t yet happened due to Covid-19 restrictions; however business is running and in full effect while still adhering to enforced regulations to ensure safe services for everyone.
