“My love affair with hair began at an early age. I enjoyed braiding, styling, and creating fun hairstyles with my sisters. I loved that each of my sisters had a different texture of hair. I took over my Mom’s parlor, washing and doing hair, I was the go to hair stylist in the family.”
– Founder, Tosi Ufodike
