Featured Stylist: April B. (Atlanta)

My name is April B. I’m a loctician and natural hair artist. I’m currently working in Atlanta’s  premier luxury salon The Glambar.   I attended the Virginia School of Hair Design and graduated ahead of my class.  I learned valuable information & training there.  During my school years I realized that society implies that we should have chemically processed hair in order to have a certain look or appeal to the masses.  It implies that if “our” hair is straight then we’ll have a better chance of succeeding or getting a promoted within the workplace. I began to get tired of living within those standards.  So I then began to look deep into my soul and realized what makes me; me. I developed a love for natural hair when I became a mother.  Starting when my oldest daughter was just 2 months old, I began to braid her hair.  She had so much of it and I didn’t want it to just sit on the top of her hair.  As she grew, her hair grew, as it grew my skills grew.  That is how I developed my braiding skills and became a braider.

Then I came to the conclusion that I needed a transition in my life, so I decided to cut all of my hair off from shoulder length to nothing almost and began to loc my hair.  From then on it was my mission to keep the world “kinky” as possible “fresh from the roots”.

My goal is to educate every client on the proper up keep of their hair.  Many say that I have a GROWING HAND and it shows.  I love to give consultations to find out more about my client and what their needs are.  Too often one will go to a stylist wanting a particular service not necessarily knowing whether that service is healthy for their hair. I’ve seen too many stylists who do whatever to the patrons head without educating the client.  They’re more concerned about their wallets rather the health of the client. NOT ME!!! If I know that a particular style or process is unhealhthy, I will not do it.  Simply because I know the long term effects that they are unsafe hair practices. I will offer you a suitable solution and options for you to achieve the styling that you want. Something that will compliment your facial features  as well as what will coincide with your personality; making you feel better about you!
