Landrine Djembo


I am a hairstylist who has been in the beauty industry for over a decade. I've recently expanded my business with Organic products that I've formulated myself. I also sell hair extensions and custom made wigs.

What inspired you to start your own business?
I’ve always done hair since i was young but as I got older I realized how much I loved it. I tried working in many different jobs but I was always miserable and felt unfulfilled. Whenever I’m styling I’m in my zone I feel great, happy, passionate and fulfilled. So I decided to go to school for it to better educate myself more once I did that I had more confidence to build my own clientele. After that I figured it’s time to branch out on my own and be my own boss.
