HOW WE STARTED
It all started with Tyler having a perm all the way up until she was 14 years old. Since then she's done several big chops, used almost every product you can think of and her journey brought her here. She never knew how to take care of her hair so she rocked her natural afro whenever her hair wasn't in braids and many people loved her for it. Students reached out to her to express how much of an influence and inspiration she is to women who look like her. Although she couldn't master taking care of her own hair, surprisingly she took care of many of her friends' natural hair during high school years. But after years of being natural with no guidance, something clicked at 19 years old. Yes, a 19 year old finally mastered the tricks of beauty care. But not just for her, for everyone.
The Tee Affect was founded on September 23rd, 2019 by Tyler Anderson.
Originally, TTA was only a natural hair styling business. Tyler used to do up to 3 heads a day while juggling her leadership position on campus, a job at the financial aid office, and being a full time college student. As hectic and fun as this was, TTA was on its way to expanding because Tyler had a bigger vision for her brand. Before you know it, TTA’s product line became an addition to the business on February 10th, 2020. On that day she launched hair oil, a beard balm and two body shimmers in gold and bronze. These four products were made by Tyler in her dorm room and sometimes her house. She would sell her products all throughout campus and family functions with the help of family and friends because TTA did not have a website at the time, only an instagram page. TTA’s products would sell out every week then Tyler would make a new batch on the weekends just to start selling products all over again on Monday mornings. But towards the middle of March 2020, college students were sent home for Spring Break and never came back. At this point, COVID-19 had struck the United States causing all schools to shut down. Tyler was then forced to adjust and change the dynamic of The Tee Affect. But there were brighter days to come. Life changed for TTA just one month after lock down. Our website dropped on the 15th of April in 2020 and it’s been amazing ever since. We gained our LLC, shot our first commercial, vended several events, launched apparel, and more! Our TTAFamily is growing and we’re so excited to keep climbing the ladder with you right by our side.
