My name is Melissa Etienne but everyone calls me City. I wanted to supply the natural hair community with protective styling options that helped us maintain our natural look for a reasonable price. I've been natural myself for a little over a year but I did my big chop in September 2013.

I started Big Chop Hair because I've been in the hair industry for a long time and I know high-quality hair. I had been exposed to this hair that I knew other people would want but didn't know how to get. I felt the natural hair community didn't have many human hair options available to them.

Whatever you do to your hair is your choice. Nobody can tell you how to be you.

I'm different from other companies because I'm out there for everyone to see. I'm not a secret person, I'm not hiding, everyone sees pictures of me, they see pictures of my family, they're able to call me, they're able to text me and have one-on-one conversations with me.

Another thing is pricing, I have great prices! And aside from my great prices, I also work with people. Someone might text me or call me and ask me for a discount code and that's not a problem for me. It can be hard to get back to all of the people, but I do make it my priority.
The reward is seeing how happy everyone is once they receive their product. I get so many happy emails and texts from people. They send me pictures, tag me on Instagram and all these things make me so happy because I love seeing that I am supplying these wonderful women with a wonderful product that they love! Your hair should make you happy. Do whatever you want to your hair. Wear it the way you feel like wearing it. Wear it straight, curly, colored, weaved or wild, what ever you do to your hair is your choice. Nobody can tell you how to be you.
