Enjoy!!

LJ: Tell me about yourself. How long have you been in the industry and how did you get started doing hair?

TT:  My name is Tamieka Taylor. I am a graduate of Lawson State Community College c/o 2006. I am a licensed cosmetologist who is proud to say I've worked at the same salon since graduating 6 yrs ago. My love for hair came as a teen as I experimented on myself, family & friends. 

LJ: What is your specialty?
TT:  I specialize in a wide variety of hair services with my main specialty of taking severely damaged hair & transforming it back to its healthy state (I love a challenge).

LJ: What is your personal hair care routine?
TT:  My personal hair care routine changes depending on whether I wear my own hair or add extensions.. But most of all I shampoo & condition it weekly & ALWAYS wear a wrap or bonnet on it.

LJ: What advice would you give to women who relax their own hair?
TT:. The advice I'd give to women who are non-professionals in the industry about relaxing their own hair is DON'T DO IT!! You take the risk of over processing your hair. Leave that to the professionals.

LJ: Do you believe that glue and hair mix? 
TT: Although sew ins weaves are healthier,glue in extensions can be worn with minimal damage considering there are new products on the market known as glue free weave protectors plus I always advise clients to not pull out the tracks but to shampoo it out CAREFULLY or better yet, let your stylist remove the weave.

LJ: What is the worst thing a woman can do to her hair in your opinion?
TT:  In my opinion the worst thing a woman can do to her hair is NEGLECT IT. 

LJ:  What is your top hair care tip?
TT:  My top hair care tip is to maintain regular shampoo & conditioning. CLEAN HAIR IS HEALTHY HAIR! 

LJ: Where can we find you on the web?
TT:  You can find me located on Facebook: Tamieka TheStylist Taylor,
