Objective: To be one of the greatest hairstylists that ever lived!
Tikeisha Floyd was 16 years old when she was introduced to the world of hair styling. Keisha made a visit to a salon to get her hair styled and while waiting, she saw a hairstylist do a hair weave on a client. The process captured her attention and this was the beginning of her new found love. Her mom bought her first mannequin head and at that moment, the dream was born. Keisha was going to be a hairstylist.
In May of 2004, she attended The Aveda Institute of Cosmetology in Atlanta, Georgia and graduated in June of 2005. She worked at Rick's Styles & Cuts in Lithonia, Georgia for 4 years and 2 years at Sokai Salon in East Atlanta Village. She currently works at Salon Scenes. All along she began taking classes and studying sewing techniques that would better master the custom wig she was creating for clients with alopecia, cancer and other medical conditions. She became an educator for Farouk Systems and and went through Paul Mitchell Educator Training. Keisha's goal is to become the best at what she does. She has received all types of training from cutting, to coloring, hair weaving, and wig-making. She believes that continuing education is one of the keys to success. She has become an educator in teaching weave techniques and also holds private classes. She made an instructional hair weaving dvd that has been sold around the world. Her customized wigs for women with alopecia, cancer and other medical conditions are worn by women all over the world. She has made several wigs for a certain radio personality and her work has been seen on national television. Keisha's work has been featured in several local beauty supply stores.
In the near future, she wants to become a platform artist. And she is in the early stages of launching a wig line. She also wants to win a Stylist choice Award and an Emmy. Keisha believes that the universe is the limit and she just scratched the surface. In the words of Diana Ross, “ It took me a lifetime to get here and I'm not going nowhere.”
