As a licensed cosmetologist, Mequeda has over 15 years of experience working one on one with women of all ethnic backgrounds.
Due to a lack of quality options, she is passionate about fulfilling a need for natural looking units to match the textures and styles of African-American women who suffer from hair loss.
Mequeda created a custom unit for her mother who lost her locs due to radiation treatments for breast cancer. This is why she founded the Locs for love program to help other women who are losing their locs. Locs for love is designed to help women keep their locs by getting a loc wig designed out of their hair.
" I believe Locs for love is an unconventional alternative to take back your power, keep your image, and fight back in a beautiful way, losing your hair is devastating, but losing your look is traumatizing".
Mequeda is constantly learning new techniques to invent new products that will help enhance or maintain your image,whether you are losing your hair due to stress, cancer, or other health-related issues.
She is forever dedicated to add caliber ethics and her artistic essence to her clients and the beauty industry as she styles from the inside out.
