My name is Claudia Creebsburg. I am 42 years old and I live in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. I am married and have two daughters, ages 6 and 4 years old. I am a freelance make-up artist and entrepreneur and I own NaturalBlackHair.nl, an online store with natural hair products for curly hair. We also organize hair events locally.

I actually started in the beauty and hair industry for 14 years as a make-up artist.

Every time I was in the US I was amazed of how many beautiful products were available for curly hair in almost every grocery store around the corner. Products that were not easy to get here in the Netherlands. When I came back home, I started Natural Black Hair.

We sell a beautiful range of natural hair products imported from the US for the curly Dutch and Belgium girls. I started the online shop in 2011. In 2013 together with the lovely Taren Guy we started organizing hair events, which was a natural next step.

The biggest perk of doing what I love...

I meet a lot of interesting Dutch and foreign people in the hair and beauty industry. And of course--I am never out of my favorite shampoo or leave-in conditioner.

Every time I was in the US I was amazed of how many beautiful products were available for curly hair in almost every grocery store around the corner.

My biggest piece of business advice?

Do not try to do everything yourself--especially if you do not have a partner. Outsource and find good freelance workers. If the opportunity is there, take it.
