Greensboro native Kenisha Curtis graduated from James B. Dudley High School and North Carolina A&T State University. Her love for styling hair began at an early age. Before deciding to pursue her passion, she worked in corporate America for ten years.
“My passion is to first educate my clients about the science of hair and continually provide results that are cost efficient as well as competitive in the industry,” she says. According to Curtis, the industry has been compromised by supply stores and chains, and she believes styling professionals have to constantly perfect their craft. “By doing so, we can reassure the clients that we are indeed professionals and we have their best interest at heart,” she says.

Curtis has been a professional stylist for seven years. She currently works at Wray Wells Hair Studio 710 West Market Street, located in downtown Greensboro. The services she provides includes Relaxers, Keratin Treatments, Color, Precision Cuts, Weaving, Fusion, Malaysian Weaving, Braidless Sew-ins and Natural Styles.

As a stylist, Curtis says she faces many challenges. One of the biggest is having individuals devalue her profession. “A lot of what we do is readily available and because of this we come under a lot of scrutiny. I’ve had clients come in and advise me that they can receive the same service from a neighbor/friend, who is not licensed, for lesser than what the average stylist charges,” Curtis explains. If her services are offered somewhere else and at lesser cost, Curtis says the results are not the same. “As a stylist, we have to remain professional, courteous and respect others time,” she says.

Curtis says she is inspired by serving the under served. “My mother used to say that a woman’s clothes can be old, but if her hair is fresh, everything else falls into order,” she says. “It is my desire to serve that population who effortlessly cares for others but in turn deserves pampering themselves.”

Curtis offers specials and free days because she says everyone deserves to feel good about themselves and their hair. “The feeling I get when someone looks at me and smiles and cries is priceless. It makes all the bad days worth while,” she says. She is happily married to Michael Curtis and a proud mother of three.
