I'm 21 years old and a licensed Cosmetologist. I specialize on natural hair and I love to do color, silk press, braids, sew in and micro beads extensions.


Hello, my name is Aminata, but I usually go by Amina . I am a senior at Western Michigan University majoring in Human Resources Management with a minor in General Business. Beside school I have a passion for braiding hair. I have been braiding hair since I was a 6 years old but I have been braiding hair professionally for 5 years now. My specialties are feed-ins braids, knotless braids, box braids, kinky twists, boho braids, starter locs, retwists, and cornrows.


Hi my name is Pelumi. I've been braiding since I was 9yrs old and I started working at the shop 3yrs ago. I love it and I look forward to seeing my clients.
