Our Founder

Bestowed with a passion for cosmetology most of her life, Founder, Erna Jones-Blackman created Butterflies BBI after recognizing a need for services while volunteering with the American Cancer Society where she served as a stylist in their wig program. While serving with ACS, Erna was inspired by the smiles she would bring to the faces of her clients as she assisted them while they dealt with their personal illnesses. She then decided to bring her services to children, in attempts to help brighten their days and quite possibly their futures. 

Although Butterflies BBI services all children, Mme Blackman has a special interest in inner-city children because they are a group that has often been overlooked due to the special needs of their hair. Her goal is to help uplift, inspire and create a sense of normalcy for each and every one of her clients by assisting them in obtaining the most natural look possible. She believes all of her goals are attainable with the right circumstances, because according to Mme Blackman, "At ButterfliesBBI, we create the right circumstances." ~ EJB
