Growing up, I always looked up to my mother - a strong business minded woman. From early age, I captured her success, her downfalls, and everything else in between. Today, I am reminded of her hardships and growing pains.
From the age of 13, [when mom first introduced hair to me] leaving New York into small town Flowery Branch, Georgia was a big culture shock for me. Mannequin dolls were my only friends and my only free time. At age 15, styling mom’s hair in our basement salon [before Sunday mornin’ came] had just become second nature to me. I never really dreamed about becoming a stylist at the time, but over time; I unknowingly and blindly had fallen in love with hair. At age 17, I had already been sculpted into a professional level stylist. I worked as an assistant for many years until I decided to attend a school that would further my education and knowledge in hair. Through those years, I attended over 140 professional classes that have made me more successful as I’ve grown within the industry.
In 2015, at age 23, I landed a one-of-a-life-time job in the city of Beverly Hills, California. Being amongst the elite, I quickly learned where I was headed in life. I obtained my California Cosmetology License that year and began my journey in becoming that high status stylist. After learning about my father’s heart conditions, I left California for good. And my life came to a halt.
Today, as I reminisce the stepping stones - I have come to the conclusion that life is nothing but a glimpse. This is the beginning to a start that I have always dreamed of. For the first time ever, I am becoming my own culture, my brand, and my own signature.
