What Natural Hair Means to Me ~

I have been in the hair industry for over 16 years and have had the privilege of working as a salon manager, creative director and consultant for one of the top natural hair salons in the country.  This has afforded me the opportunity to have my creative designs grace numerous magazines, television shows, and high profiled celebrities.  However, throughout the years, I have realized that there was something terribly missing in the hair care industry….. HAIR CARE! Believing that the integrity/health of our hair should not be sacrificed or compromised for beauty, but rather beauty IS natural, healthy hair, I created Meko, New York Natural Hair Care Spa & Boutique.”
