designing my lofty femme salon atmosphere at Nekesa Natural Radiance Hair Loft.

A Natural Radiant Star was born on September 6 in New Haven, CT. According to my mother Ida M. Johnson, she knew that I was destined for fashion and beauty. As a little girl she said I would dress up, and change outfits and shoes 3-4 times a day. In addition to fashion I would style any dolls or persons hair. I would decorate my room and started my own salon in our family basement at 13 yrs old. I started my cosmetology education at 17 at The International School of Cosmetology in California, and finished at The Osborne School of Cosmetology in Atlanta, GA where I worked with several celebrities and graced many top editorial magazines. I worked on video shoots, as well as some movie sets. I then became a Licensed Master Cosmetologist in 1995, and the rest has been Herstory.
It has not been a easy journey,
however with my faith in God, along with the love and support
of my husband, kids, and family, the NNR vision has become a
movement. After mixing several products to create one result of providing moisture and manageability for women who embrace their hair texture, I created " NNRBC" Nekesa Natural Radiance Beauty Company in 1999. The line started with our main seller the 3-n-1 Deep Moisturizer. Since then, I have added 10 other products to the NNRBC line.
In 2010 I was blessed to open a second commercial brick and mortar salon location. The vision for this was to provide a creative space where women could come and embrace their natural hair texture, where they could learn about their hair, and where it was naturally radiant. At the time I was a sophomore at Spelman College studying to obtain my B. A. in Comparative Women Studies with a minor in Film and Visual Culture. I choose to make this to move to inspire women and young girls to always be the best person they can be by investing in themselves, in more ways than just getting your hair and nails done. I believe that as a woman you must invest in your outer appearance, but most importantly your inner-self.
My quest to make everyone beautiful expanded from doing hair behind the chair to creating a natural hair curriculum at Atlanta Technical college, creating my hair line NNRBC, hair extensions line N'Luxe, becoming the Executive Producer of Beautifully Driven Productions -- which consist of "Beautifully Driven Magazine" an online magazine and future film -- and developing my non-profit "Doing it Her Way" Education-Entreprenuership-Empowerment. The NNR Philosophy is to ENHANCE YOUR LIFE ONE STRAND, WORD, or INNER MIRROR AT A TIME.
