What inspired you to become a hairstylist?

I’ve always had a passion for braiding. As a kid, I would sit and put individual braids in my baby dolls' hair. I remember it used to take me two days. I would sit in my room watching tv just braiding hair. A lot of people will say they don’t have the patience to braid, but I've always had it.

Tell us more about the different hair services that you offer.

At the moment, I only offer braiding services that include: knotless braids, feed ins, men styles, and natural styles. I plan to expand into locs and more men's braiding styles.
