She had a vision of owning her business as far as she can remember. Growing up in Burlington, N.C. Kanta Hinson was inspired by her sister, Patricia Logan and brother, Bobby Logan, both who are professional stylist. She would visit their establishments and study how they conducted their business. She says her sister taught her at a young age how to style hair. It was in her genetic makeup to become a hair stylist, a vision Hinson says she soon realized.

After graduating from Cummings and Hugh High School in Burlington, Hinson attended Carolina Beauty College and obtained her cosmetology license. After graduation, she began working at Upscale Hair Salon in Burlington. After two years there, she move to Greensboro and began working at Millennium Styles Hair Salon, under the leadership of Latonya Couch. Hinson says Couch inspired her and gave her insight on the business side of the styling industry. As her skill set developed, Hinson saw better opportunities in her future as a business owner. Four years later she left Millennium and opened the doors of her own salon, Exclusive Touch.

Exclusive Touch remained opened for three years before she outgrew that location. She then opened her current location, Divah’z & Co., a full-scale hair salon offering professional hair styling services. She credits her fiance, Mareio Reaves for being the driving force from the beginning. As Hinson continues to grow, she says her daughter, Ka’niya Reaves inspires her to be the very best in her profession.

A native of Burlington, Kanta obtained her Cosmetology license from Carolina Beauty College in 2002. After graduation she began working at Upscale Hair Salon and soon moved on to Millennium Styles. Kanta knew she possessed leadership skills and stepped out on faith and open her own salon, Exclusive Touch in Greensboro in 2007. In 2010 she opened the doors at Divah’z & Co. and currently leads four professional stylist, passing along her expertise and knowledge while doing so.
