About Me

My name is Erna Jones-Blackman. I am the Founder of Butterflies BBI which is a 501c3 non-profit organization that provides FREE hair replacements and solutions to children experiencing hair loss due to medical conditions. I've always been bestowed with a passion for cosmetology, hence I created Butterflies BBI after recognizing a need for unique services while volunteering with the American Cancer Society as a stylist in their wig program.There, I was inspired by the smiles on the faces of my clients as I assisted them as they dealt with their illnesses. I resolved to bring these services to the children, in attempts to brighten their days and quite possibly their futures.

Although Butterflies BBI services all children, I have a special interest in inner-city residents as they are a group that has often been overlooked due to the special needs of their hair. My goal is to help uplift, inspire and create a sense of normalcy for each and every one of them by assisting them in obtaining the most age-appropriate and natural look possible. I believe all of these goals are attainable under the right circumstances because "at Butterflies BBI, we create the right circumstances." ~ EJB
