My Story

My Story

My Love for Hair began when I was 7 years old. Growing up I loved trying different hairstyles on my dolls. At the age 10 I had my first relaxer, but it was too strong, which led to my hair falling out. My aunt was the only one that would let me do her hair when no one else would. It gave me the confidence to explore my love for hair .

I know how it feels to not be happy with my hair .I attended Pivot Point in 1989, I really enjoyed cosmetology school.

I worked for several salons, I contracted work for Catholic Charities, Forever Free, Recovery Home, & Abraham Lincoln Center.

There were many competitions held that I competed in amongst other talented hairstylists.

When I worked in different salons there were things I did not like. I knew

there was only so much that I could take.

My lasted project was working with the youth at Phillips high school with Centers For The New Horizon(After School Matters). I taught young ladies about hair and fashion.

For the last 4 years I have partnered with One Summer Chicago and it's been great. I hire young people to help with marketing and running a business. My goal is to be more successful, build a bigger & better shop, get more clients, & Keep every customer happy!
