Born and raised in Atlanta . As a young child Dominique started off by doing my own hair. Always taking down the styles her mom did on her own hair and redoing them. Eventually when she was in middle school and started braiding her own hair . Dominique's first client was her close friend from the neighborhood.
Her mom wanted "me" to braid her hair like mine . Ever since then, Dominique had been braiding hair and evolving at a rapid pace. When she got to high school she started to sew her commercial hair into her own. Her clientele took off. Once she graduated, the realization that there was a strong enjoyment and a passion for making people look and feel good guided me to cosmetology school.....and there her craft was mastered. Her very first job was earned as a stylist while in cosmetology school. She never looked back since.
