My name is Cristian Frias, I was born in The Dominican Republic and Raised in the South Florida area. Originally introduced to the barbershop culture at the age of 13. I started my first job sweeping the barbershop floors. By sticking around long enough I saw how the community looked up, appreciated, and respected their barber /stylist.
At the age of 13, I made the decision that I would become not just a barber but a grooming specialist in the cosmetology field. Best decision I have ever made. With great association and mentorship from other barbers, now at 20 years old, I can not only cut hair but can also perform other services for example: Scalp Detoxes, Full Black/White Head Extraction Facials, and Beard Detoxes.
I’m always looking to expand my knowledge. I’ve attended out-of-state barber courses where I got the mindset and the keys to take myself to the next level. I’m very grateful for everything I’ve been able to accomplish up to now, but I’m even more excited about where I’m going and what’s next.
My name is Jahlesa Taylor, I’m a 29-year-old professional hairstylist, raised in North Lauderdale, FL. I specialize in textured hair and color, and I also dabble in barbering. I tell folks I became a hairstylist on accident while braiding hair in college. After college, my mother suggested I try out cosmetology school, and I fell in love instantly. This October marks my third year as a licensed professional. My career began at Moda Hair Salon in Coral Springs where my first boss and mentor helped me find my passion in color. Immediately as a new stylist, I began to see that there was a need for stylists who not only do textured hair, but love and respect it enough to be patient with it.
As my career progresses, I plan to continue to hone my skills in textured haircare. This includes; cutting/styling hair in its natural state. I’d also like to focus on relaxers, because I believe that every WOC deserves healthy hair regardless of how they choose to wear it.
