Dasia: What inspired you to actually want to pursue being a hairstylist ?
Latrease: I actually got inspired by one of my fellow instagramers @Idlelocs I always admired her work and not may people in my area offer goddess locs or faux locs , so I took advantage of that and offered a service that I knew is most popular.
Dasia: What is the most request style customers ask for ?
Latrease: Goddess locs are the most requested at the moment it has been one of the most popular styles that I offer.
Dasia: Do you do any other styles other than braiding ? If so, what kind ?
Latrease: At the moment I am only doing braids I don’t offer any other styles other than braids.
Dasia: Have you ever had a customer come from out of town just to get their hair done by you ?
