About LaKenya

It’s no surprise that LaKenya is a rising star in the Atlanta hair game. As the youngest of three siblings, LaKenya found herself honing her skills while playing with her dolls. This childhood hobby ignited a passion, and after finishing high school, LaKenya enrolled at American InterContinental University where she received her BA in Fashion Design & Marketing. She then decided to return to her first love of hair styling and entered Empire Beauty School. Eight years ago, LaKenya went on to earn her Master Cosmetologist license. Since opening her salon, Allure Beauty Bar, LaKenya has become one of Atlanta’s most sought-after stylists.

Now that LaKenya has established herself as a force in the hair game, she’s growing her business to include her other great loves: fashion and beauty. She has opened Luxe Beauty Boutique as a complement to Allure Beauty Bar, and also has her own line of “Allure Luxe” extensions.


LaKenya doesn’t just want to be a power player in the beauty industry, she wants to be a pillar in her community, and strives to employ “underdogs” and to mentor driven young stylists and entrepreneurs. LaKenya is committed to helping others to stay motivated and to reach for their dreams.
