Sonya Fletcher's career started in an unlikely place: her neighbor's scalp. While growing up, Fletcher tended to the hair of neighbors and her own mother, beginning a lifelong love for styling and cosmetology that led her to open Sonya Michelle Hair Spa. Her expertise in braiding, twisting, and weaving keeps her nimble fingers in high demand, but that's not all the salon offers its clients. The service menu also includes moisturizing treatments for curly, kinky, and wavy hair that can be prone to dryness, as well as keratin treatments that imbue locks with smoothness, shine, and the ambition to audition for shampoo commercials. Clients can also come in for color services that can transform looks with vibrant hues.
