OMG HEADBANDS' founders, Markeem Leonard and Chrissa Karathanasis with their children, Ki'Lynne Leonard & Makenzo Leonard
We are originally from Chicago, IL. We moved to Florida in 2014 to start a family. Both of our children were born in Florida. In August, 2019 we came up with the idea of making headbands for our daughter, so we got some fabric tied knot and snapped some fasteners on them.
Never thought of turning it into a business until we noticed we were getting tons of compliments on the bows whenever we go into public with our children. So we did some research and noticed that none of the bows that were created had the fasteners like we do to make multiple styles of bows. That's when it clicked and "OMG HEADBANDS" was born.
We knew we had to get this patented and we did. We just launched our website in October 2019 and have been receiving an overwhelming amount of support from our friends, family and customers. Thank you to you all! We could not have done it without you!
