I feel truly blessed and honored to be a hairstylist. This career has brought me some of the most rewarding experiences. This career has blessed me and my two children . It has empowered me as a woman to become independent. I have a passion for hair. Which shows in my work . My heart is poured into each appointment. I have always been drawn to art and fashion . It only made sense for me to pursue my career in cosmetology. I have been licensed since 2005. Only taking time off to spend a year with my little ones after they were born. What I love about this career is that hair is always changing. There is always something to give me the challenge I crave in life. I can remember my first hair salon experience . I was probably three years old. The stylist was so sweet to me. My family “oohed”and “awed” over my new hair. I locked myself in the bathroom and cut every curl the stylist had put into my hair off ! I wanted to keep that feeling going ! Sadly I had to get one of those famous for its time haircuts ,
“ The mushroom.” Luckily hair grows. And life goes on.
I am a lover of the outdoors. I love to work on myself both physically and mentally as a daily practice. I enjoy cooking and learning to make new things. I love to go to new restaurants and try new things. I love to hike and travel. Cant wait to work with you!
After realizing that I couldn’t keep my hands out of my head my mother gifted me with several Bratz dolls so I could stay out of my hair after she styled it. At the age of 13 I was so fascinated with how my sister could loc and braid hair. Learning how to do locs was very easy considering I have an older brother who had locs at the time. My brother would let me do his hair for my practice.
In the same way, Learning to do cornrows was very simple to me,I was a natural. I thought it was so cool to make people’s hair longer with extensions.However, learning how to add extensions was my challenge. After begging my mother to buy me braiding hair for my dolls she finally bought me some. It took me several triall and errors to learn how to braid the hair extensions into my dolls head, but I was persistent and I learned. Ever since then, I’ve been a self taught braider and loctician
At the tender age of 5 my older sister taught me how to braid, sometimes braiding for hours. From then on I knew it was my passion. When my aunty could not do my hair I would practice and practice braiding my own hair. As a direct result it helped expand my skills to help others who could not get services from local salons by the age of 12. Its was very important to me to that I provide services to all ethnicities, so I enrolled in Paul Mitchell "the school". A great experience and 1600 hours later I graduated in 2015. 2 years later I unexpectedly lost my mother/friend so I took a long break from hair. Thank god I was blessed with 3 beautiful children earlier in my story, they reminded me why I could not gibe up on what I love. It is in my heart to help empower and uplift others, let me give a piece of my heart!
Lexi started her styling career at Paul Mitchell The School in St. George. She is excited to continue her education and to be apart of the Bee Wow team as a stylist assistant. Her passion lies in coloring, blonding, and special event styling. When not in the salon you can find Lexi dancing, baking cakes, or taking pictures. She is excited to meet and get to know all of you!
