How It All Started

J’adore Noir was founded by myself Sammie in 2020 simply on a whim and with just 1 month preparation! I learned to braid from the very young age of 5 and have been doing hair ever since really! My mum would spend hours doing my hair for school just for me to go to school and take it out and do it how I wanted it.. even if it didn’t look the greatest! In school I would do my friends and family’s hair and at the time I HATED doing hair but I always did it anyway because I could and it’s something I did alongside every job I’ve had for some extra cash.

In 2020 I was made redundant from my job as a dental nurse due to covid which is when I decided to finally launch my business and start working for myself, instead of trying to find a new job in the middle of a global pandemic. People were losing their jobs left, right and centre, it didn’t make sense for me!

Who says you can’t look cute in scrubs?!

After doing hair as a self employed hairstylist and loctician (ouuu sounds so nice you gotta say it twice.. SELF EMPLOYED HAIRSTYLIST AND LOCTICIAN). I then decided that I wanted to start making natural, cruelty free products to go hand in hand with my hairdressing services. So I got my notepad and pen and started researching. I researched every single ingredient before I decided to use them and I choose aloe vera to be the main component in my products because of the amazing benefits the plant possesses. I wanted to make products to help others reap benefits for their hair and skin, as opposed to hair and skin problems which some products can and do cause.
After very extensive research and planning, I started making, designing, marketing and selling my products all in 30 days and fast forward to almost 2 years later my business is still going strong! I am so grateful for the journey and so far not one person has had a negative thing to say about any of the products they have purchased from J’adore Noir. My clients and customers are amazing and my products are amazing so it’s a win win all round!
And now it’s safe to say, I LOVE doing hair, making my products, designing labels, packaging and posting your orders, meeting new people, slaying their hair and making them feel good, all while using my products. I thank you all for supporting my small business and allowing it to continue to flourish. 

The love doesn’t go unnoticed!!
