HARLEM, Manhattan (PIX11) – An businesswoman from Harlem is using her talent in the beauty industry and in business to serve as a teaching moment for other young ladies living in her community.
Vakeela Wilson is enthusiastic about both the beauty industry and assisting young people. Now, she combines the two, assisting others in launching themselves into jobs that pay well and careers that are chic.
Blake Monroe, who lives in Harlem and is six years old, eagerly anticipates being on the hairdresser’s chair. Wilson, who is both her stylist and her role model, is someone who she eagerly anticipates seeing every six weeks. Wilson imparts wisdom and loves into each and every braid that she assists in making.
Wilson stated that she had an idea for a business after observing that barbershops and salons were unable to properly work with textured and curly hair types.
Now, Wilson runs a camp in Harlem that teaches young people how to properly care for their hair.
I AM H.A.I.R. is the name of the weekly program that enables young women to get the confidence they need to enter the beauty industry.
According to Wilson, the objective is to teach young people, particularly girls, and women between the ages of 8 and 18, the skills necessary for professions that pay well.
The fundamentals of proper hair care, such as washing, braiding, and styling, are covered in this session.
Wilson offers weekly classes for a group of fifteen young ladies. Her goal is to one day run her own fitness center and increase the scope of her curriculum. If you are interested in receiving further details.
