I’m a business strategist that empowers stylists to know their value as service providers and cultural artisans. I’ve worked in the salon industry for 20 years as a Licensed Barber, Cosmetologist, and the founder of Mahogany Hair Revolution. I’ve hosted classes and workshops in Paris, Johannesburg, the Virgin Islands, Trinidad, and Tobago. I increased my salon income from $8K a month to $40K a month in less than a year. My reputation as a skilled Braider, Master Loctician, and Trichologist has made me one of the top requested Natural Hair Stylists hired by notable celebrities and athletes including Chole x Halle, Sloane Stevens, Halle Berry, Meagan Good, Brandy Norwood, Wale, Ava Duvernay, Kelis, Ayesha Curry & Jennifer Hudson to name a few. As a multifaceted Entrepreneur, I have developed strong business skills that have led me to serve as a consultant and educator for top haircare brands including Shea Moisture, Eden Bodyworks, Deva Curl, Curls, Kinky Curly, African Pride & Sof’n Free.
As an industry leader, I was appointed by Governor Jerry Brown to the California State Board of Barbering & Cosmetology where I served for two consecutive 4-year terms. During my tenure I was elected as President of the board for three years and Vice President for three years. As an innovator, I created the original Goddess Locs with a pending patent and developed my own hair care products, Beauty by Dr’K.
And this is why you are here. I am a one-stop-shop for all of your hair business needs.
As a self-taught braider from South Central Los Angeles, many of the things that I have accomplished in my career are things that I didn't know were possible until I stepped out of my comfort zone and surrounded myself with people that reflected the vision that I had for my life and career.
On this platform, I have combined my wealth of knowledge, experience, and resources into simple steps to help you build a solid business with vision.
I’m excited to be a part of the journey to your next level of success.

I'M READY TO TAKE MY TO THE NEXT LEVEL!
