Today we’d like to introduce you to Dee Dee Bennett.
Hi Dee Dee, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I first discovered my passion for hair at the age of six. Since then, we grew inseparable. I grew up all over Houston, but the Southwest side is home. The salon was a hobby for me every two weeks, I observed and was inspired by a hairstylist who kept my mother’s hair slayed. I even hustled in middle school, collecting ten and twenty dollars for braids. My crown became my most prized possession until my life took a turn when I was teased for having fine hair. Suffering from low Self-Esteem and insecurity issues, I never felt like I was beautiful enough. Though I’ve always smiled through the pain, I mastered hiding behind it. Because of it, I stopped doing hair for years until 2014. I met my spouse, who also had the same passion for hair, which motivated me to go back to my first love. Since then, I have grown from being a mobile hairstylist to taking clients in my home to moving into my own suite. I take pride in helping people through my hands and ensuring where true beauty begins, which is in the Heart.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Starting my business was definitely difficult because I still had to manage my life. Juggling school, work, my household with minimum support was stressful, which lead me to losing everything in the process except what I love to do. During that low time of my life, I then begin to get back closer to God. I don’t regret starting all over from scratch because it made me stronger, equipped me to focus harder, and motivating me to continue to seek after my goal-driven dreams.
