I started doing from the front porch to Hollywood. Age seven it’ was the way I would start my friendships .by fixing and braiding hair At the age of 18 I had a beeper 1 800 beep braids then age 20 I went to beauty college And currently I’m a Celebrity hairstylist in Hollywood.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
No, it hasn’t been a smooth road “the gift remainder inside we just sometimes forget to shine and use it”. It’s always trials to success I say a few I’m a single parent I have raised three children John, Candyse and Johnea I’ve lived a tyrannical lifestyle on the run from the feds with my x husband and survived domestic violence. I open my salon in 1999 someone burned it down in 2000 named Candyforhair I became drug addicted and alcohol addicted. I’ve been homeless.
