Came to New York in 1970 and was discover by ULTRA SHEEN Product from Chicago doing Platform hair stylist through out the USA. for many years, I was the only Chinese Guy doing hair at the Black Hair Show,, In 1976, I heard about Jherri Curls and was trained by Lustra Slik Products by their local tech. and from there it was history! My Salon on Flatbush Ave was one of the first Salon doing JherrI Curls in Brooklyn, went back to my home land Trinidad and introduce the Jherri Curl, had seminars and later years I went back and open my own salon and all the natives was coming to get the Jherri Curl,Cuts etc,,... In 1985, when I return to New York, I saw Miss Diane Ross with all that long hair flowing in the wind in Central Park, I created my own hair weaving system that same year, When I mention to hair stylist what I was doing, most told me, weaving would never last, now look at most women wear some sort of weave or false Hair...
weaving was not fashionable in the 80", till I went to most of the popular Black hair show and demostrated the "Unique Interlocking Hair Weaving & Netting System" with NO CornRowing! hair stylist was amaze seeing me interlocking the weft hair into the clients own hair with out cornrowing, as the years went by, I started to teach hand on training to only license Hair Stylist through out the World.
In 1988 when I move my Salon to NYC, from the regular working women to house wife to Celebrites were clients like Kim Coles, No one knew she was wearing a Weave in "Living Color" as years went by, I move back to Brooklyn where I am still located with a full staff who all do the Interlocking & Netting System...In 1999, I did the first African woman to win Miss Universe Show In Trinidad wearing my Up do on the night she won!, she went on doing Clairol Texture & Tone ad wearing my hair weave. log to my website to learn more on what I do now.
