Neesha Maria, is 47 years old born and raised in Chicago Illinois. The passion for becoming a cosmetologist came at the very young age of 12 she started styling her mom and her sister’s hair. Her passion was then confirmed by finding out her paternal great grandmother was a hairstylist as well as her great uncle (a Master Precision Artist who resided in Detroit Michigan) was also a stylist who owned and operated a 36 seat salon. At the age of 18, she got married and had 3 beautiful girls of her own. Her husband has been one of her main supporters from the very beginning by telling her to pursue her passion and paid for her to attend beauty school.

For the past 26 years, Neesha Maria has been an entrepreneur wearing many hats. However none of those hats take away from the beauty of being a licensed hair care professional. Neesha takes pride in making sure the hair of client’s remains healthy, from damaged hair to assisting in the growth of a client’s hair. Her main concern is for clients to know “it is possible to have sass and style while maintaining healthy hair.”

If there was a brand for Neesha Maria, it would be friendly and professional, great customer service and time management. She works extremely fast and it is important to her that clients don’t have to wait, in and out with health and style. Neesha customizes a conditioning system for each client based on their needs. You will find several product lines at the salon to accommodate all hair types. Retirement sounds great but it appears that it won’t be soon. The joy and gift of enhancing women’s beauty is still working.

Ebony "Khavoni" Roberts


Ebony "Khavoni" Roberts has been in the cosmetology industry for over 15 years. Perfecting her gift as a highly sought after technician, she prides herself in educating and establishing genuine relationships with her clientele and students.


Ebony began working in the cosmetology field long before she went to school to obtain her license. As a result, she began to create wonderful masterpieces with hair, and started to make a brand for herself. Being able to tell a story using this gift and talent, she credits God for giving her the ability to create one-of-a-kind pieces. She has participated in several hair shows, The Proud Lady being one of them, and now holds certifications in Fusion Extensions, Coloring (Anastasia Paints, Matrix & Pravana), Keratin Treatments & Barbicide and is currently enrolled to become a licensed Trichologist.


“I want my love and passion for what I do to inspire others to greatness. It has not ALL been easy, but it has ALL been worth it! When I say I love what I do I mean just that. From working in my salon, bridal, cancer survivors, to working on the set of a film, I enjoy meeting, learning, sharing, creating, unforgettable memories with everyone that my path crosses. My father passed of cancer when I was 17, and watching him go through the pains of the disease, I knew then I wanted to help people in some sort of way. It wasn’t until 5 years ago that I realized how to help cancer survivors and those still battling the disease, I just started creating crowns for them. What that does for people who have lost their “Mane” is indescribable. This is what makes me push the limits to give all can to an industry that needs “good people”. This is just one of many ways I have been blessed to be a blessing.”


Her work has been featured in USA TODAY, Child Model, Allezom International Magazine, Full Figured Magazine Online, Sophisticates’s Black Hair, Chicago Style Magazine’s 25th Anniversary Edition, and many more!
