About me
Ever Since a little girl I knew there was something in me that wanted to do hair! I started out watching my aunts braid to me doing the same thing I seen on my barbie dolls! In middle school my mom started getting lazy when it came to doing my hair so I BEGGED her to let me start doing my own hair, which she did! I would look at some of the girls hair in school and try to recreate the style on myself! When I got to high school I had the opportunity to join this program to go off campus to get credit at a beauty school but I felt like I wouldn't have experienced my senior the same if I would have went! At times I feel like maybe if I had gone I would have been much further in my career but I feel like things happen for a reason! When I got to college at FAMU I was praying for a cosmetology program! My luck was bad, lol! There were cosmetology schools all around, but my mother would not have allowed me to quit school for hair school even though I knew deep down it was what I love! 4yrs into me being in school, my major wasnt working out, so I switched my major from Mathematics Education to Economics! Within a semester of starting the program I had to deal with two deaths, and the loss of my 5 year job at Winn Dixie! When ALL else failed, I thanked the LORD for my HANDS! I started doing hair out of my house for a very long time and it was very hard and it still is but I WILL NOT GIVE UP! I went to hair school and graduated March 2012, yaayy me! On April 16, 2012 Alexei Afonin(photograher) gave me an opportunity to style 4 models hair for Hype Hair Magazine! I had .95 cents in my account left after I got all my supplies that was needed including travel! For that opportunity in my mind all I could keep saying was WHATEVER IT TAKES! I was just so greatful and appreciative for the opportunity! While working the photoshoot, I met the Fashion Stylist Leon Frager, who told me about this website and here I am! Doing that photoshoot was such an amazing experience for me that I felt like NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE! Im excited about my journey and I know its not going to be easy, and there is so much more I want to learn and so many new genres that one day I would love to do and MY LOVE FOR HAIR will keep me pushing to the end! :)
