Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert

Teyana Taylor is embarking on another business venture. This time she is opening a 1990s-themed nail salon in New York City. The salon, which she named after her and basketball star Iman Shumpert's 2-year-old daughter, will be called Junie Bee Nails.

Junie is the nickname Teyana and Shump gave their daughter Iman Tayla Shumpert, Jr.

The salon will have a '90s vibe and she plans to sell ghetto fabulous merchandise and clothing that reminds her clients of the good times we used to have in the hood.

"I’m talking everything from Dapper Dan style Uni’s, to Door Knockers, Bamboo earrings, baby hairs, Airbrushed nails, 54’11’s and all that other fly shit! The true essence of that 90’s Flavor," she wrote.

Teyana will open her salon in Harlem at the end of the month, and the 27-year-old star is currently hiring nail technicians to work at the salon. Teyana plans to conduct the interviews herself.

"This is so exciting," she adds. "Also been a long time coming! S/o (shout out) to my partner @cocamichelle we've put in so much work make this happen!"

Teyana's new beauty venture comes almost two years after she launched a membership-only exercise website, Fade 2 Fitness which sells workout clothing and exercise gear.

The singer also promoted her and Shump's reality TV show on on Wednesday.

"The @TeyanaandIman and @babyjunie4 show is coming to @VH1 on March 26th!" She wrote in the caption of a photo of a shirtless Shump.

    They seem like they are one freaky ass couple.

  • T3

    I love their family! I pray reality TV doesn't destroy what they seem to have going.

  • RespectSelf

    Good for her. She's be grinding for a minute now. I'm glad Kanye let her shine in his video. Since that video she's been coming up in the world.

  • pure_rachet

    He looks so zesty and she knows it. She can't even make eye contact!

  • Yardgirl

    I love this idea!! I am definitely going to the shop when it opens. I wish more African Americans would get their certification and open nail shops. Our people go there the most and are making Asians rich and "a lot of them" don't eeem like us!!

  • TaylorFinallyMadeIt

    Congrats on all your endeavors!!!

  • Kemi

    Good for them! Nothing wrong in building more wealth for the future/future generation

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    go girl.

  • free

    they seem to be a loving couple; reality shows do nothing for marriages. but i guess she may need it for promotion of her other ventures.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Nasty photos cute little girl all I got ....

  • Rayne

    Much success. Cute baby!

  • my view

    Sounds good i would love to see the pics of the place

  • Ebony Starr

    She looks like Grace Jones in the 2nd picture. Baby Junie is too cute!

  • PinkGoon

    Reality tv equals doomsday!! And everything don’t have to be told...just do it!!! ??When folks get to boasting too much ish goes left ....and they have no idea how to react once it do!!! I miss the privacy of it all....them there days when u had to pick up a magazine and find out ish if U wanted to now it’s practically thrown in ya face like every 5sexonds boom another reality look at me and my Bish ok we see u..? move! She barely lived through the 90s...still in diapers...leave the 90s alone....something’s u just can’t relive or redo!!

  • Yoni7

    I preach it in here ALL THEE TIME! They come to us for NOTHING! We go to them for hair, nails, food. It saddens me to no end.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    She has a unique voice. Talented girl. Wish them the best.

    That being said, Iman already has a problem keeping his D in his pants, reality tv would be the last thing I would want to do.

  • Yoni7

    I like her. I wish her MUCH SUCCESS! Way to go! SHE is my #bodygoals2018

  • Yardgirl

    Girl me too!! And don't forget the hair supply stores!! Back when I used to relax my hair and searched far and wide and was able to find a black owned store. Lady got old and no one took over so it closed and guess what Asians took over the spot!!

  • JRock

    Good looking out for creating job opportunities in Harlem. But why post a topless picture of a baby girl in this day and age of extreme pedophilia? Oh, I forgot. She and Iman have an open marriage so there ya go. Got married for what reason? Oh, I forgot. So they could still have sex with other people.

  • Mia Said so

    YES!! reall go back to the 90's with keeping you rmouth shut.. Like our parenst would say what goes on in this house stay's in this house

  • Yoni7

    I thought I said "hair". LOL I don't understand for the life of me, how Madame CJ Walker came through with the black hair product and now the Asian's got it on lock.

  • Rayscoty

    Let me know when she post his print again. Good day

  • TawnyDelux

    she knows how he gives it up, cause shes usually there.

  • TawnyDelux

    I'm giving them 2 episodes, then they really have to pull me in. I HOPE this is a gateway to a new album cause VII is still in rotation in my life. that little EP she had was cute but VII was amazing.

  • Bonsai

    I love these two and baby Junie

  • 5000BlinK

    That Baby so PRETTY!!!!!!!

  • 5000BlinK

    What! He has a problem being faithful???? I thought she had that on lock!

  • BeUtFullSoul

    I love this family! #positive #black #love

  • Diva4lyfe

    Much success to the Taylor/Shumpert family love you three.......

  • 5000BlinK

    Good way to get a free wedding

  • Renee26

    I want to see the set up for the baby hairs LOL

    Much success to her

  • Kayke

    Yo' because there is no difference between a baby girls chest and a baby boys. If you see something different then you are the problem....stop smexualizing babies.

  • Michelle

    Man go on somewhere. Nobody but a nasty mf thought anything about that baby having no shirt on. Didn't even cross my mind. Baby's are naked on commercials and there's a million boxes of huggies and pampers with babies in nothing but a diaper. A pedo going to be Ya pedo no matter what and a baby ain't going to change that.

  • Gloria

    Sounds like a really cool idea. Will definitely check it out the next time I'm in New York.

  • the guest

    This is Fabulous! Will definitely support this lovely family business!

  • JRock

    Perbs protect perbs, I get it.

  • JRock

    A perbs wil protect a perbs, I get it.

  • KLo


  • Kayke

    I don't know what you are saying, but that babies bare chest gave me no thoughts one way or the other. Your thoughts went straight to smexuality and the potential people who would want to do things to her.

  • shun king

    stay home and cook for the kids dont that dude have millions she should be stay at home mom

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    I wouldn't mind seeing a "leaked" tape of theirs lol

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    Stop hatin. Nothing about him is zesty.

  • 1BlueStar

    I hope this does well. Dope idea!

  • Enoughsaid2020

    Great idea! Another place for me too visit in NYC.

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    There's a lot of Black nail techs. The issue is we don't have the capital to open up nail shops.

  • Trace da Ace

    hmmmm.....why would you think that??? That was sooo left field....and I think you are meaning to say "pervs" as in pervert....not "perbs"...jus saying.....

  • Yardgirl

    I have never seen a black nail tech. I had read an article about them needing to take courses for certification and this being a barrier (don't know why) A few years ago I was given a spa certificate and the white lady that did my feet was amazing. She told me the same story about certification issues.

  • Phyllis


  • Phyllis

    I bought her album a few years ago and just revisited it earlier this week. It was definitely a major banger indeed. Teyana is amazing in everything she touches. I wish her and her family much success.

  • Misslaydj

    Her album is TOTALLY slept on. My niece has to put me on and its so GOOD.

  • Gamer?? Chick

    Go Teyana keep building that generational wealth!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Idk if it's a problem. She must be ok with it. But yeah he has been linked to a couple of every day chicks in Cleveland.

  • TheyDontHearMeTho

    The idea sounds extremely dope and I hope she succeeds. I’ll definitely support

  • Keepin’IT100

    They seem like a fun couple

  • Junkanoo

    People need so much attention,praise and validation these days its obnoxious and draining. l thought the the same the 90s is trending right now but will it be hip and cool 7 years from now. I cant stand this little heffa with her hard looking face

  • Latisaj


  • Lady_Elle

    Make your coins! I love it!

  • HTOWNPuffinBlockGameSoStrong

    Wait... what?
    Nothing wrong with shooting for billions, and, I totally respect the fact that she's not letting her talent and dreams go to waste. Why just sit around when you can make a difference, she may inspire others.

  • shun king

    child need love and nurturing and a mom who attention is not divided not billions

  • HTOWNPuffinBlockGameSoStrong

    Who said that she was neglecting her child? Some people can multitask, my grandmother raised my dad and my aunt, worked two jobs with no help from the government, and still gave them the motherly love they needed, and to this day it shows. So open that mind of yours up, career doesn't always mean you neglect your kid. From the looks of it she waited until the baby was a toddler instead of starting another business while she was a infant.

  • Notatall

    Cutest little baby!

  • 90’sBawdy

    Their daughter is a cutie pie.

  • SummerBaby

    I love this idea!!

  • Harley

    He stay with a side piece

  • Harley

    There are many black nail techs in Cali

  • Harley

    I do not care for her and her pug face either. But these people are narcissists and cant help it. I wont be watching. Will his side chicks be there
