FROM DREAM TO REALITY
So, Hair it is! I had no idea, 15 years ago, that I would develop such a passion for doing what I am doing now. I mean it all began in my senior year of high school when I merely decided I would attend any type of vocational school so that I would not have to be in school for a full day. That was the "thing" to do, go to school for two to three hours and leave school for "something". I decided my "something" would be hair.
Well, it turned out to be more than "something". In fact, cosmetology became my passion. I completed cosmetology school in 2007. I passed my licensing exam with flying colors and I thought I would end "things' there. However, while working as a cosmetologist, I pursued a college education.
In 2013, I earned a double BBA in Business Management Administration and International Business from University of Michigan. I went on to work in the corporate world, assisting in the opening of a salon, then going on to work in executive management and developed skills in operations, marketing, finance, hospitality, sales, team management, and entrepreneurship.
In 2013, I started my hair extension line and reached over $20,000 in sales in 4 months. Unable to keep up with the demand of my product while giving all my time to the corporate work, I stopped the operation of that business; one of my life regrets, but also a life lesson.
I went on in pursuit of higher education in 2016 and received my MBA from Kettering University in 2018. In 2016, I also began the research and development process for my hair product line, creating a multi-textured friendly natural hair care line.
I am a proud owner of LaTresha Rená Salon and Spa with a vision that combines my passion for health, beauty, and my business knowledge and skillset. I am yet pursing higher education as a Ph.D. student, remaining disciplined in business with a desire to impact many and give back what I have been given.
Outside of work, I serve in ministry at my church within the music department and as the youth president. Overseeing and working with young adults, teens and children. I have devoted my life to Jesus Christ and the best part of life has been his every changing plan for me. Which has included getting married to a wonderful husband that supports my vision, living down south with him, working on a second location, and traveling to Michigan to service my clients and business.
