Professional stylist Tamika Fletcher shares an opportunity to learn at-home hair care!
Introduce yourself and your event and your company!
I'm Tamika Fletcher, co-owner of Natural Resources Salon
, and on Saturday, August 25, we are hosting The Natural Hair Bootcamp - New York
. I've been a professional natural hair stylist for 12 years and I've worn my natural hair for 15 years.
Can you tell me about your curly hair story?
On my natural hair journey I've worn styles like twist outs, braid outs, bantu knot curls and rod sets! You name it and if it's a curl I've tried it! I've also worn organic locs, sculpted locs, short tapered curls and afros so big that people point. I've worn afro cuts and mohawks. Versatility is one of the many reasons I love my curls so much.
How do you wear your hair? Natural? Curly?
My signature natural style is a very polished pin up with stretched hair (blown dry on low heat). I try to add a little retro-flair to my personal pin up creations.
Can you tell me a little bit about yourself and how you got started in the hair care business? Can you tell me about your own personal background and the event’s background?
When I decided to transition to natural, the DIY way was close to my only option. I recognized the need for natural hair care education through service. Taking care of your hair between salon "checkups" or style appointments is paramount. Since we spend more time caring for our hair than our hair stylists, we believe learning proper skills are essential.
I have been in the salon industry for over 12 years. I have spent those years bringing passion to the natural hair care industry from behind the chair. Recently, my salon has expanded from two stylist to a team of ten natural hair care specialist. We educate our clients through social media , local media and hands-on classes like the Natural Hair Bootcamp.
The Natural Hair Bootcamp is designed to encourage you to take charge of your natural beauty at home! You will walk away with techniques that professionals use for proper hair care.
Education is the foundation of every service at Natural Resources Salon. We strive to always teach our clients something new during each appointment. The bootcamp provides an all you need, hands-on experience to become your own stylist.
The bootcamp has been held in Houston, TX for the past two years, once a quarter. Recently we began offering monthly classes. This Saturday, August 25 will be the first Natural Hair Bootcamp held in New York City.
