I started doing hair at the age of 14, and my passion and commitment to my craft has grown every day over the past 28 years.
I graduated from high school in 1995, enrolled in cosmetology school right away, and became a licensed stylist in 1996. Just 6 short years later, I opened my very own salon.
After Hurricane Katrina hit, I moved to Atlanta for a while before coming back home to New Orleans and opening a new salon on St. Charles Avenue. I didn’t realize how huge of an achievement this was until a 90-year-old black woman came into my salon and told me that she was proud of what I built on St. Charles Avenue because she wasn’t able to walk down this particular street when she was younger.
I stayed at the St. Charles location for 10 years and became known as a celebrity hair stylist. Over the years, I’ve styled many celebrities, including Gayle King, Reginae Carter, Lauren London, Vanessa A. Williams, Christina Milian, and Michelle Williams. I’ve also been featured in Hype Hair and Essence magazines, worked with BET and Hairfinity, and styled hair for tv shows and films.
In 2018, I launched The Pink Lace Brand with the goal of helping as many people as possible to grow their confidence and self-esteem while growing long, strong, beautiful hair. I’m passionate about helping others to feel beautiful inside and out, and every product I create is designed with that goal in mind.
Thank you for letting The Pink Lace Brand be a part of your journey.
