Erica Dixon Dishes On Branching Into Entrepeneurship With Klass 6 Hair & Dress Lines

July 28, 2014  |  

Though known most for their larger than life personalities, crazy drama, and wild antics, reality television stars are more than just primetime entertainment. Many of them have successfully launched their own entrepreneurial ventures, helping them to branch out beyond the television world. One example is  Erica Dixon, cast member on Love and Hip Hop Atlanta and founder of  Klass 6 Hair and Klass 6 Dress Line.

We caught up with Erica to ask her about the inspiration behind the “Klass” lines, what’s she learning about running a business, and advice she has for ladies who want to start their own ventures. Check out the interview below. 

MadameNoire (MN): How did your experience on Love and Hip Hop inspire you to start Klass 6?

Erica Dixon (ED): Being on a reality show, seeing others have that motivation to go ahead and pursue whatever their dreams or aspirations were [inspired me]. Klass 6 was something that I always wanted to do. I wanted to put something out there for the ladies. With Love and Hip Hop, I had that platform [and audience] to go ahead and do it. I told myself that I was procrastinating. What was I waiting for? Let me go ahead and do it.

MN: What made you focus on fashion and hair with Klass 6?

ED: I did hair and fashion because that is what I am all about. I’m a female. I love to have my hair done and I love to have on a bada$$ dress. I’m not going to sell a dress or hair to somebody that I wouldn’t wear or buy.  When you see me, I always have my hair in. I may not always have on one of my dresses. I do like to help other brands, but the majority of the time, you will see me with my own products.

    The weave is a good investment. However, I don’t think the dresses will sell in abundance.
