Being raised in a Foster home I was not around many people who dreamed outside the box, I experienced hunger, homelessness, physical and mental abuse. I would mentally escape by dreaming of owning a home and having my own business. One day my social worker told me “I was smart and could do whatever I wanted if I was willing to work for it” Working for it meant to channel my anger and attitude into something more positive. I started cutting anyone’s hair who would let me.
After 22yrs in corporate America, the opportunity presented itself for me to move to the next phase of entrepeneurialship, I worked for a lady who became my business mentor in a salon in Old Town Pasadena, and nearly 5 yrs later I opened my 1st salon Strandz Hair Studio. Three yrs later came the second one Strandz on Grand in Covina, CA and then the TSFairley Hair Restoration Center.
