Meet the Owner & Artist behind the creativity of Hair Musiq
“The Hair Musician”
The Hair Musician started her passion for beauty at the tender age of 5, where she taught herself how to braid. At the time, her Aunt was a full-time student who attended Brio Cosmetology School. Whenever ‘Auntie’ would come home to practice with her manikins, The Hair Musician would grab her doll and produce a hands-on practice session. With practice made perfection, where The Hair Musician would later be known as “The girl who does hair” around the neighborhood. Beautifying her peers for Proms, parties,& events became an every weekend routine. She effortlessly challenged herself to mimic the latest trends.
In 1999, The Hair Musician worked in her first salon, under owner Rita of Rita’s Hair Design, in East Hartford, CT. Years later, her hobby turned into a passion, which then turned into hunger and ingredients for a professional career. First came education w/ schooling from All Natural Beauty in Windsor, CT and later to Legacy International in East Hartford, CT. In the midst of education were internships, Hair Care seminars, Un-paid trainings, Hair Shows, Fashion Shows, and Wedding/Bridal styling.
The Hair Musician is now a devoted mother of two, CEO of her own Salon Spa, & a full-time student at Paul Mitchell The School of North Haven. In conjunction to hair styling, The Hair Musician is a skilled & qualified hair care specialist and loctician. She is also a professional Wedding & Event Planner with her own business, “Style Drama Event Planning, LLC” in the Greater Hartford, CT area.
The Hair Musician specializes in general hair care. However, her strengths are (but not limited to) Locs, Braiding, Creative up-do styling, & silkening treatments. Shontai (also known to many as ‘Taye’ and later re-named ‘The Hair Musician’) is a mentor & educator to those wanting to expand their knowledge in the beauty industry. The Hair Musician takes most pride in continuous growth. In her own words, “I aspire to inspire.”
