BUFFALO, N.Y. — It’s all about hair care at one particular hair salon in Buffalo.
High Klass Hair Salon is where you’ll find Christina Bishop, who also started a new business this month with her 7-year-old son.
Bishop said, “Our new venture is Kyle Jackie Hair Care.”
Who is Kyle?
“Kyle is my boss. It’s great working for him. He’s an amazing boss,” said Christina.
It’s possible to say that they are very similar. Her 7-year old son Kyle Bishop-Winfield is Kyle Bishop-Winfield.
“I sell hair care products…hair care products for boys only. Bishop-Winfield said that he was tired of using girl hair products.
Both of them would walk to the store looking for hair products to enhance their long braided hair, but they were disappointed to find that most of the products were pink or girly.
“So I’m like, okay, there’s a need for boys to have products designed for them,” said Bishop.
The bottles were created and tested by the second-grader.
This business venture doubles up as a memorial.
Kyle’s father died of a heart attack in 2017, at the age of 25.
“Before he passed, he would always talk about how much he loves Kyle’s hair, so it was a thing, I was like I’m never gonna cut his hair,” said Bishop.
That’s the inspiration behind his non-profit, Kyle’s Gifts from Heaven. The proceeds of products are used to buy gifts for children who have lost both parents.
Bishop stated that each Christmas, he and his wife gift their children the exact gifts they requested from their parents.
This way, his dad stays involved in his progress. The label of his non profit even features him.
The all-natural products will instill confidence in boys around the world, including Kyle.
“It’s a more enjoyable experience. He enjoys getting his hair done because it’s his products, it’s for boys, and he created it,” said Bishop.
Those products do say for boys only, but they’ve had adults, girls, and all kinds of people buy and use the products.
