Isn't she an attorney? I think I read an article that she was an attorney who started selling hair.

Yes. A Columbia U law degree, corporate lawyer. She was in Cambodia doing commercial real estate & acquisitions and decided to do a venture of her own while there.

Does anyone know anything about her husband?

Also the time where customers information was readily available online and the apology after that in which she pretty much blamed someone else....janice is too much.


Sorry, I just couldn't resist. 

Janice actually started the company BEFORE she joined BHM.  She was advertising to English-speaking Cambodians to be a part of a company that supplies extensions to Beyonce.  She then hopped onto BHM claiming she was launching a small company and needed help and advice. 

She ripped off BHM for its knowledge and to get some capital via asking testers to pay for hair to see how the ordering process would work.  She welcomed suggestions and basically ignored them. 

I watched the whole thing unfold without typing a word because I KNEW she was scamming BHM from the start.  She did a Swtcandy and got away with it.

On top of that, you had capes like Missbossy who got free or heavily deep discounted hair from the company telling tall tails about how exclusive the hair was and how 3 finger spacing was easily achievable with the hair.  She swore she had no affiliation with the company, but she was one of the moderators of their forum. 


As for her husband, I am willing to bet she's married to a white man.  The way she carries herself, she'd be a white lady if she could.

Yeah.  The thing was--there were a few who called BS on her from the get-go, but they were sort of silenced because other members were singing the "give her a chance to succeed" song.  I thought she was going to scam folks the same way Swtcandy did (and Janice must have done her homework on Swtcandy), only she came right out and said she wanted to start selling hair and "innocently" asked if there was a market for it. 

When Janice started talking about how great Cambodian hair was, I really wanted to step in and say it was Chinese hair and would act exactly the way Chinese or Japanese hair acts, but she got people to sip the Kool-Aid.  I had been to Cambodia and I *knew* the prices of weave were not only sky-high, but the workers were not going to be the ones to receive much profit nor were the people she scalped. 

I remember the e-wars with her when she got all upset when I said the factory she had those women working in looked like a damn sweatshop and then she proceeded to justify herself by explaining how these women were working and receiving an education. 

I STILL think Janice is a disgusting human being and I wouldn't even buy her hair second-hand.

Wait a minute...so she sells directly from Cambodia??? I just don't understand why the hair is so expensive and why the process is absolutely ridiculous. Her hair must be the bomb because I don't know how a company comfortably makes their product so hair to get.

I just got a pm in my inbox from a company called Mermaid Hair that sells on AliExpress. Would that be Janice? Or the supplier that she gets it from? So this hair would be junk as well?
 
Do they scan BHM for potential victims or something? I was just asking extensive questions about weaves the other day on TTT...
 
Edit to add: There's a thread upstairs on them. It seems others have received the pm...
