This weekend I had a great opportunity to attend a salon opening called Crie Natural which is a local business in Greensboro, NC. There I met and interviewed the owner and creator of the salon. I wanted to take the time to know the owner and find out what inspired her to become a business owner and who is inspired by her.
Name: Aminah Lawson
Occupation: Licensed Cosmetologist, Natural Hair Stylist, and a Product Manufacture in Greensboro, NC
Q1: A lot of people think that hair makes the person, and since you decided to cut of all your hair how do you feel about that comment?
Answer: How you would wear your hair is a reflection on how you feel about yourself. I cut my hair because i feel comfortable not having hair. To me how a person chooses to wear their hair long, straight, curly, short is a reflection on who they are as an individual.
Q2: Who inspires you in natural hair or as an individual in a daily life?
Answer: Definitely my mother, she’s an entrepreneur. She has never worked for anyone else. She inspired me to work for myself. When it comes to me being a stylist I have so many people I am inspired by in the beauty industry. My aunt is a hairstylist and my hairstylist when I was a child. They were the ones that inspired me to want to be in the beauty industry.
Q3: Are there a few people that are currently looking up to you right now?
Answer: My assistant. She actually will be starting cosmetology school soon and I have been doing her hair since she was about 11 years old. I think I have inspired her to want to be in the beauty industry.
Q4: Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?
Answer: By the grace of God having more than one salon Crie around the country.
