When did you first realize you had the talent to become a hairstylist?
I was in high school and I went to the salon with my cousin to get her hair done. I watched her hairstylist custom design a weave, barrel ponytail and I went home to try it. I was so fascinated by this skill that I knew this was what I wanted to do.
Who was your first client?
My cousin, Sabrina Floyd
What are you most proud of?
Knowing that I am fulfilling my purpose by helping women with alopecia and cancer feel better by helping women get their confidence back.
What three things do you like most about your industry?
I get to transform women into whatever and whomever they want to be. In this industry, you can go as high and far as you want to go. I can be flexible.
What three things should your clients never be caught without between services?
Shampoo and conditioner, a flat iron, and Sleek Edge Control
What is a first visit like with you?
I am professional and kind of humorous at the same time. My goal is to give the client the style they want but not be so uptight while I am doing it.
What sets you apart and/or makes you different from other stylists in Atlanta?
I truly love what I do and I truly love my clients and my ultimate goal is to make every client happy and satisfied.
Who is your mentor?
Mrs. Carolyn Hurst, she owns B Fitness. She sets the standards and helps me become a better professional.
Do you think it’s important for customers to stick with one stylist or is it OK if they chair and salon hop?
Yes, I think clients should stick with one stylist. But, it’s OK to have one back up stylist.
