“Take care of your hair from the inside out! Eating healthy and drinking plenty of water will definitely show through in your hair."

 I became a cosmetologist by chance. While styling the hair of friends and family, I fell in love with the creativity of it. After going through a divorce and moving to Topeka, KS my Aunt, whom was my biggest support system, told me to go to school and get my license. That was the best advice that led to me making the best decision I have ever made. 

I learned of the BDR through owners and good friends Aisha & Tiffany. When they decided to add hair styling to their photography and makeup firm, Smash Glam. They presented me with joining the team and without a doubt I was on board.

My beauty industry inspiration is Stephanie “Hair Magician” Thomas. When first starting out she took the time to take me under her wing and show me the in’s and outs of this industry. She taught me to not be afraid to take chances and be confident in everything I do.

My favorite Aveda hair product is the Smooth Infusion line; because it allows us natural girls to transform our beautiful curls to a Sleek and Smooth style. 

 This is Meika signing off...Have a great Wednesday, and remember to always....
