Chenita Dickerson is an artist in many forms. An aspiring cartoon artist and book illustrator, she has displayed her work in magazine pages, art galleries, and on stage. As a licensed cosmetologist, she’s also displayed her skills on the heads of happy clients.
At Hair is Artistry Too, Chenita trades in her paint brushes and pencils for scissors and blow dryers. She removes split ends and adds ombre color or full foil highlights to craft exciting new looks when you’re tired of your hair or have to help an action hero tell you apart from a clone. She can also sew in hair extensions or glue in a quick weave to add fullness and length to hair.
Aside from beautifying clients, Chenita uses her art for other good by selling art through Autism Artistry and donating some of her proceeds to the Nathaniel’s Hope charity for kids with special needs.
Faye Bailey was beginning an uphill battle when she told her mother she wanted to open her own salon. Faye had been braiding and pressing hair since she was 14, but her mother worked as a teacher––and all 11 of her other children attended traditional colleges. After a brief stint at the university, though, Faye could no longer ignore the pull of hairstyling.
Thus, Faye moved from Macon, Georgia to Florida and started studying at a beauty school. Before long, her dream became a reality: she opened All Dolled Up Salons and Stores. Now a chain of five salons, including a braidery house, her stylists specialize in natural hairdos such as loc styling, cutting, and short hair wraps. But they also color, perform smoothing treatments, and affix weaves to natural hair.
