|Ms. Rhonda The Owner/Founder
Award Winning Stylist
|This is where it all began. In mom's kitchen. She was a licensed cosmetologist back in the day. So, it's in my
blood. I can remember she would have 10 Jerri curls lined up on a Saturday morning at the house. This is how
busy she was. With that said, she had me stretched out from rinsing neutralizer to taking their rods out.
Everyone in town wanted her to do their Jerri curl :). From then on, I found myself styling my friends hair and
making up their faces. I wanted everyone around me to look beautiful. My friends loved me for that. Every
where we went, we was fly :). They received free hairdo's almost every day when my mom left for work. It was
her Fashion Fair make up we was using. LOL
I then went on to graduate high school and attended a few schools. Bethune Cookman, Jones College, The
Teller Training Institute, FCCJ where I studied Webmaster and Interior Design. During those times I worked in
corporate America @Humana Insurance Co. (as Team Leader) and a couple other insurance companies for
about 10 years. I strongly felt, something was still missing. I done the unthinkable and stepped out on faith. I
quit my job and started with nail school so that I could generate some type of income. I had an unknown talent
that I did not know of until I started drawing free hand designs on my own nails. I created strawberries,
pineapples, little people, and faces etc. Once I finished nail school I re-enrolled for cosmetology to pursue my
true passion. Now, in the beginning yes it was a major struggle, but it was well worth it. My goal was to open a
Hair Extension Salon. It's funny because what started this whole idea was because I could not braid. Since, I
could not braid/cornrow I thought I would just specialize in Hair Fusion. Low and behold, somehow, braiding
actually came to me in a dream just like everything else I come up with. I had my daughter (Ishiah) sit down as
soon as she woke up and told her "I know how to braid"...lol she said "For Real?". This was amazing to her
because I always gave her pig tails or plaits that would stick straight because I'm underhanded (meaning I do
things backwards/the opposite). From that moment on I was braiding. This means now I could use my other
talent sewing, to do sew-ins. Yes, I used to sew too back when I was about 14 years old up to 23 years old. I
stopped because I got burnt out and overwhelmed. Many @ Humana was wanting me to make outfits. I took on
more than I could handle. People would beg me to make them dresses for special events, but I refused to pick
up my sewing machine again. I would make high school prom dresses (while in high school), Christmas party
dresses, top hats, and business attire (while @Humana Insurance). When, I say this is another great gift God
gave me, it truly is. I sew-in hair to perfection now, just like I would sew all those clothes I made. Now, you really
know why my tracks do not come off the track :) . I also write poems and had a small business (Poetic Dreams)
selling them about 15 years ago..they sold like hot cakes. I'm in the process of adding them to my Boutiques in
the salon (because my mom says I should (-.-) so check them out. My inventive entrepreneur spirit comes from
my father (Ron Page). He was always selling something and now so do I. Everyone has a story and this is just
a small, small snippet of mine.....Now 12 years later both of my children are graduates from Fortis Institute of
Cosmetology and Barbering July -2012......My bio below:
