This industry holds a special place in my heart. It has helped me at the beginning of my career as a teen mom to be able to provide for my son and myself when opportunities were limited for me.

Over these 30 years, hair has given me the opportunity to travel the world as a platform artist. It has also allowed me to do hair for music videos, movies and shows for celebrities like Erykah Badu, Charlie Baltimore, Lil Kim, Kindred and The Family Soul, Mary J Blige, Jasmin Sullivan, and (now I’m telling my age) CeCe Peniston. I’ve worked with great photographers, owned salons and founded Bye Bye Parabens all while still working behind the chair!

Nothing has ever been more gratifying than being able to provide safe natural products and doing hair for women on a daily basis. It’s the best feeling in the world when you can make another individual smile feel and look their best. It’s something that never gets old for me.

All of those years of hard work and dedication pushing through the tough times and sacrifices my family and I have made has come full circle.  I want to announce that Bye Bye Parabens is being featured in the August issue of BRITISH VOGUE!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for your constant support of me and Bye Bye Parabens! It means the world to me!!!
