Today we’d like to introduce you to Rayann Christine.
Hi Rayann, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
My name is Rayann, CEO of Home of Hunnies, LLC, a Latina Owned and Women-owned business in North Raleigh! I started Home of Hunnies at 22years old. I was about 5 months pregnant with my son. Working full-time at a corporate company, I was ready to test my motivation and talent and be my boss. In April of 2022, I quit my other full-time job and opened a full-time Home Of Hunnies, specializing in Lashes, Brows & waxing! We have managed to create a safe space for all genders & give everyone who walks in the doors The confidence they deserve to walk out and feel amazing about themselves. We are the one-stop shop for everything beauty made for EVERY-HUNNIES beauty🤍
We all face challenges, but looking back, would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
When I started home of hunnies, I was not only five months pregnant but also working 32+ hours a week at my other full-time job. I would get off of that job and work on my days off to help build my business. As a single mother, I wanted to give my son the best life I could offer with no limitations. I’ve spent many hours away from him, working as hard as possible to grow my business. I used my full-time job to pay for my business for the first couple of months and essentially worked for free without having to pay for supplies and rent. With a baby coming, most people would save all they could, but I knew to build my business, I would have to make sacrifices, but here we are almost a year and in October. I make as much time as I can for my son, and I’m still able to be flexible with my work schedule and be the mother that I need to be for him and create an amazing, safe place for any and everyone to walk in maybe not so confident and walk out feeling their best selves.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
At home, with Hunnies LLC, we specialize in full body, intimate waxing, Fanny facials (facials for Butts), Vajacials, and Manjacials (facials for the private area)for everyone lash lifts, intense brow lamination, and tinting as well as, individual lash extensions. We are known for our Brazilians, Manzillians, and our individual lash extensions. What that says, apart from most other beauty salons, is speed waxing for all genders. Most Beauty studios that do all gender waxing are corporate. The biggest thing that I found and made me start waxing for all genders was the lack of gender equality waxing; most people do not want to take that on or don’t feel uncomfortable. But we are a non-judgemental beauty studio🤍 We are most proud of our gross and the number of people who find our studio daily. We are now looking for a bigger studio because we need more space to fit all the clientele that we have created!
Can you share something surprising about yourself?
We are also working on creating the first tiny tattoo studio in the triangle area, meaning we only do tattoos the size of a palm soon Home of Hunnies will expand from esthetics into cosmetic tattooing as well 🤍
