Today we’d like to introduce you to Caprisha Daniels.

Hi Caprisha, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I fell in love with the Art of Braiding at the early age of 13. I practiced on all of my friends all throughout middle school and high school and became familiar with all textures of hair. As much as I enjoyed doing hair, I just wasn’t confident enough to make it a full-time career.

I enrolled in a Phlebotomy program in Georgia and worked in clinics and hospitals. I always styled my hair different ways. I was my own model! My clientele grew

2008 I was hired at a Natural Hair Salon in Atlanta, Georgia as the braider. I received on the job training in Natural Haircare and Locs.

2013 I became a Licensed Cosmetologist

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
It hasn’t always been a smooth road. Entrepreneurship is definitely not for the weak! You have to build your clientele and be your own model and cheerleader even when you don’t feel like it! It is so important to choose a career you absolutely love. There’s a lot of late nights and early mornings. But when you love what you do, it doesn’t feel like your working.
