We had the good fortune of connecting with Michaiah Israel-Crenshaw and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Michaiah, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I was never really “good” at working for someone else. When I have a vision I like to execute it with swift action and the company isn’t always looking to better themselves in a way where only I seemingly am the only one to benefit.

The crazy thing is, I am a great team player when amongst individuals who desire to have a team.

I soon realized after working random jobs that didn’t coincide with my career and working for friends and family, that if I want the dream team I have to create it.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My hair craft is art. I truly connect with my ancestors when I’m performing in the salon. Typically people have an idea of what they want when they come to be, but I like the shake things up and show them something different that they’ve never seen before. And I don’t just mean hair, but their entire experience in the salon.

My hair craft is art.
People love it when you can break down their barriers and fill them with confidence and assurance. I take my craft serous and guarantee satisfaction.

Everything is a challenge. If it were easy we wouldn’t do it. I’m in the process and releasing books, classes, and more to help any and everyone that wants to learn.

I have been doing hair for 20 years and I still get excited about it. The products, tools, clients and content all make it worth it.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
You got me on this one. I just moved to Atlanta 1 year ago and I still need my tour.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My family has been and still is my biggest support system
