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.
