I AM AELEISE JANA

Creative Director of Flyness, Lover of Curls, Beauty Business Bombshell, and a complete Natural Hair Geek. I'm a visual artist and Curly + Natural Hair is my primary canvas/medium. I work with beautiful women to give them the best cut and color of their textured hair lives, no lye. I'm not a natural hair stylist. Anyone can braid/twist/loc. Though I have and may selectively continue to provide those services, my specialty is Curly Cuts + Creative Color in the red + brunette family. I create lines, shapes, forms, and dimensional saturated hues with coily, curly, and kinky hair. My people are fearless artists, lawyers, doctors, professors, and entreprenuers who feel free to rock their hair, their way . They allow me to fuse my Art School intensity and technical Aveda training to create fly cuts + amazing color to create bomb ass natural hair.

New and Prospective Clients

First, I'd like to thank you for visiting hairloveart.com. Whether you're thinking about a big chop or have been natural since before it was popular, you are welcome here. My philosophy about natural hair is that it. is. just. hair. Hair is an accessory meant to be worn in any way the owner pleases. I see myself as a facilitator for you to establish or simplify your hair care situation. If you are at the point of thinking about coming in for an appointment please visit my booking site for your city. There you will find a full service menu with descriptions and pricing. Please schedule a New Client Experience only. This allows me to allocate the proper time and resources for your appointment. First time clients are not eligible for color services.
