I use to watch my mother cornrow family and friends' hair, I loved watching her. Mom passed at the early age of 26 and I was 8 years old. At the age of 12, I began taking paying clients by the age of 16 pregnant and in love with my now husband I began working in my aunt's salon. I've landed my dream job and with my dream person. My aunt was like a celebrity in my eyes. He trained me on the game of the business of hairstylist and what I gravitated more towards was business ownership.
At age 19 I started cosmetology school by the age of 21 aunt had passed from cancer. Watching aunt Jackie's hair fall out, her once black Jerry curl Locs are no more and replaced by baby fine bleached blonde Reggie (#1 guard low cut) although she looked fly with her new do I was crushed inside because I wish there was a way I could replace her hair strand by strand and take the cancer away at the same time. I kept asking myself how could I make a weave look natural and free-flowing without humps and bumps and attach it to her almost bald head. Every day I'd try different methods on my mannequin, but soon without expectation aunt Jackie passed on. I was still left with the burning desire to help women suffering from alopecia replace their hair strand by strand.
As I learned more and more techniques and having different unfavorable circumstances happen to me in my career a blessing happened and I ended up becoming one of the leading hairstylist in my area owning and operating a nonsurgical Hair Replacement salon.. In fact the only Nonsurgical Hair Replacement salon in my area. I love what I do, and even though wigs weaves and extensions are temporary the smiles and the gratitude from my clients lasts in my heart forever.
