About the Founder
Ja'Nique Blocker, the Founder and CEO of Sconnet LLC. is an Entrepreneur and Certified Public Accountant (CPA) who lives outside of Atlanta, GA. Originally from Akron, OH, Ja'Nique has always excelled in school and this transferred into her professional career, where she climbed the ranks pretty quickly, but was not fulfilled. She wanted something of her own and had always dreamed of owning a business. Many people told her to just open an accounting firm, but she knew that was not her passion.
In 2015, she started to pay more attention to things that she was passionate about. That passion was natural hair. She started her natural hair journey in 2014 and was obsessed, but noticed that something was missing from the natural hair accessory market. When she would go to sleep at night, she would put her hair in a ponytail to preserve her curls. She would wrap a long rectangular scarf around the base of the ponytail and would have a separate bonnet that she would place over the hair extending from the ponytail. It was then that she had an "aha" moment. Why couldn't these two items be combined to form one scarf/bonnet or a Sconnet? Little did she know that it would take a lot of time and research to find a manufacturer to bring her design to life. Once this occurred, she worked with an attorney to complete the design patent process.
Ja'Nique plans to normalize the use of luxurious, quality hair accessories while also making her customers feel good about themselves. Oftentimes, society can make people feel guilty about purchasing luxury goods and she wants to eradicate this feeling. Buying luxury goods for your hair is an act of self-care and should be normalized.
