Ivy decided to use her passion for creating hair art as a means to chart a new path. This was a passion that started during her years as a teen in middle school it would later be the catalyst needed to eventually turn her life around in ways that she never imagined. Sometimes it is only you and your gift that can save you. Ivy saved herself.
Since then she’s been privy to work on tv and video sets. She’s on the rise and has styled Reginae Carter(daughter of hip-hop megastar Li Wayne) and RHOA alum Marlo Hampton. Ivy has now launched her very own hair suite and plans to someday work with stars like Cardi B, Amber Rose, Nicki Minaj, and Keyshia Ka’oir. Ivy strength is amazing beyond words and her talent, along with a vibrant personality a spirit of perfectionism will carry her to heights heights. “I’m not ashamed of where life has taken me and in a world obsessed with money and social media looks I want people to connect to reality. Obstacles and hardships are real but so are dreams,” said Ivy.
Ivy has created a lane all her own and has no plans of slowing down. Hair By Ivy is raising the bar and setting a new standard.
“My favorite part of styling hair is seeing my clients smile and beaming with radiance because they’re totally satisfied and feeling great inside and out. My goal is to be an inspiration for single mothers and consistently bring something new and very innovative to the hair industry”
