Small Business Spotlight: Hair by Lashaunda Dean-Lawrence

Getting your hair ‘done’ as a black woman is dang near a spiritual ritual and finding the perfect stylist is almost as important as finding the right career path or mate or baby name. Yes, it’s that serious.

That importance is why South Miami-Dade hair-stylist Lashaunda Dean-Lawrence takes her role of being the “curator of cute” for her clients very seriously. She goes out of her way to make sure her clients are comfortable and overly satisfied with her services.

“I make sure that I only have one client at my place at a time to make sure the women feel secure showing their natural hair that might be a state that they don’t want others to see,” she said.  “For example, if they have bald spots due to Alopecia, I want them to feel OK when they are in my hands and not be in a place full of women staring at them.”

Being on time is also a must for Lashaunda. She said for too long stylists have had poor time management and overly booked clients, which can leave some clients waiting upwards of 3 hours to be seen by a stylist.

“I take people’s time seriously. If I’m booked for the day, then I’m booked, I won’t squeeze people in and make them wait hours. That’s unprofessional to me,” said Lashaunda.

It’s this extra care and attention to detail that sets Lashaunda apart from others according to the client reviews on her popular Facebook page, where she primarily books her business. She specializes in lace wigs installs and sew-in extensions. Hair care is important to her as well and she says she uses the best products to ensure her client’s natural hair is protected under the extensions or wigs.

Lashunda studied at Beauty Schools of America and hopes to continue to grow her customer base. She says the best part of her job is talking to her clients and seeing the look on their faces when she is finished styling their hair.

“I can honestly say when I see the look on my client’s faces when I’m done gives me so much joy to see that they are happy. I can literally feel their energy change and their confidence go up after I style their hair,” said Lashaunda. “I think that’s a special gift to have. I love being able to play a role in giving a woman that extra boost of confidence to go out into the world.”

I sat in that very same chair, looked at a picture she had taken/mirror and didn’t recognize who I was and cried. She had no idea but when I did leave she changed my life. I pray that everyone she touches be blessed and she receive her blessing 10 fold…..
