We had the good fortune of connecting with Maria Okpeh and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Maria, what’s your definition for success?
My definition of success is the presence or ability to use your pursuit of joy , happiness , purpose to inspire others on their journey as well

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
What has kept me and my salons consistently relevant in the last 12 years is the environment we have created to have our clients consistently get ouchless braids in a serene calm peaceful atmosphere

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We would definitely spend days at Jeju Spa , love love the place. I am a lover of multicultural dining experiences Thai Spice does it for me and Fogo De Chao .. Definitely a trip to Ponce CIty Market love the outdoors

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My shout goes to first God for writing an amazing life script for me to act out. To my son and family whose unquestionable support has been a rock to lean on in the tough and good times .
