Celebrity stylist, Tamia McCray has set out to make a name for herself in North Carolina with her headlining hair salons, Weave Doctors in Greensboro and her recently opened salon, WD Hair and Extension Bar in Charlotte, N.C.. With more than 10 years of experience as a stylist, her resume is what sets her apart. She has held key roles as a stylist for The Monique Show and Tyler Perry Studios, where she worked as an on-set stylist for hit shows, “House of Payne” and “Meet the Browns.” She has also provided her services and talents for many non-profit opportunities in the community by donating custom wigs to cancer patients and alopecia clients that may not be able to afford these items.

With McCray’s experience and expertise, she has channeled all of it into her entrepreneurial mindset that has given her the ability to juggle more than one salon that provides excellent customer service to all of her clients. In April 2012, she founded Weave Doctors Full Service Salon in Greensboro, N.C. Ever since it’s opening, the salon has been booming with customers and retention has stayed at a peak. This salon was designed to meet the needs of all its customers by creating a wonderful salon experience. McCray says, “My salons are not just a place of service to get a great hairstyle, but a place to get away from it all. We can make you laugh, smile, and even sing you a song or two.”

With the success of Weave Doctors in Greensboro, McCray set out to open her new salon, WD Hair and Extension Bar in Charlotte. As a native of Gastonia, N.C., a neighboring city to Charlotte, she saw the marketing opportunity the city offered and the impact she could make as a business owner. The salon is upscale and equipped to provide any and all weaving and extension services including partial and full sew ins, the new Vixon/Versatile sew in, Lace Closure sew ins, Fusions, Tape extensions, and Malaysian/Micro link sew Ins. Natural Hair Services will also be provided at this location.

Her newest hair venture is launching her new “Illusion Custom Hair Units”. These are custom wig units that are unique and hand made, and sewn by McCray and her staff. Last year she launched her own hair line “True Life Virgin Hair” which offers premium 100% Virgin hair in all textures and lengths. This line is offered in both locations and also available for shipment.

McCray’s passion for her businesses is the fuel that sets the bar high for the stylists who work with her to build her vision. She believes and is serious about bringing in stylists that are skilled in their profession and can add value to her brand. She remains so committed to her salons and customers, that she personally trains her stylists before they are allowed to handle any clients.

“My salons are a big family, we check on each other and my stylists care about my salons as much as I care about them,” says McCray. “With their support, it helps me to function efficiently by operating two salons in two different cities.”

McCray continues to stay motivated by her husband, Michael, and entrepreneur in his own right who owns Mesic Boy Productions, a Marketing and Promotional Company. She is also motivated by her 13 year old daughter. McCray says that she strives every day to show her daughter that she can do anything she sets her mind to do by going to school, having her own and being a responsible person.

In the future, McCray plans to open more salons and franchise her business name in multiple cities. Coupled with Mesic Boy Productions, she plans to offer services such as photography, professional makeup, hair and fashion styling. She is very excited about her new ventures and knows that with God by her side anything is possible. In addition, she is launching her newest hair venture, Illusion Hair Unit line. These are custom wig units that are unique, handmade and sewn by McCray and her staff. Last year she launched her own hair line, True Life Virgin Hair, which offers premium 100% virgin hair in all textures and lengths.
