Akosua Galloway, a Brooklyn native has worked as natural hair braider/stylist and weaver for more than 15 years. For the last 8 years she has been producing human hair textures, hairpieces and wigs that are virtually handmade and include colors, patterns and textures that are custom created.
As a child, Ms. Galloway observed her mother braiding hair as a source of additional family income. At age 10, Akosua’s mother began to teach her how to braid and by age 13, she was already braiding on her own.
As she gained greater experience in the natural hair industry she realized that she wanted the appropriate professional recognition for her extensive work and to expand her knowledge. As a result in October 2013 Akosua entered the Carsten Institute of Cosmetology and began a course of study in the “French Haircutting Technique”. Upon graduation from the course in August 2014, she became a licensed cosmetologist.
Akosua Galloway has tremendous experience, excellent creativity and sharp sense of the trends in the Natural Hair Industry. Add to this her understanding of her client’s needs and you have a beauty expert.
