Salon

In 2010, after graduating beauty college and receiving my license in skin therapy, I began to notice a demand for natural hair education. I remember running to the beauty shop anytime my new growth, aka kinky- textured hair, started to show. The fear was that if anyone saw my curls/naps, I would instantly be viewed as ugly and undesirable. In 1996, I did what is now called the big chop. I cut all of my relaxer out and rocked a short afro before growing long, beautiful dreadlocks. Wearing my hair in its natural state was my way of saying to myself and to the world, “I am a beautiful black woman, just the way I am, and I will not change my hair to fit into society’s narrow definition of what beauty is.”

Now more than ever, I am committed to helping women love their natural hair. I am a cosmetology student at Dudley Beauty College. My passion/ specialty is textured hair, protective styling and color.
