Hi, there! I am Tongela Curry!
Since 2009, Ms. Curry has been a licensed cosmetologist who believes that life should be a cultural experience driven by passion and healthy relationships. This career is her life! She has competed in local hair competitions and has been one of the key hairstylists for Little Rock Fashion Week and Designers’ Choice Fashion Preview. In Spring 2011, she received her Bachelor’s degree in Small Business Management (Entrepreneurship Emphasis) from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. Struggling to find a place to express her creativity in a supportive environment that encouraged growth, she wrote out her vision then turned her business plan into a reality in 2012. Her salon became one of the only salons in Arkansas that vowed to educate the masses by hosting classes that included local educators as well as celebrity stylists and national educators. In 2014, her passion to help others in her industry caught the attention of TWO international beauty brands that both invited her to train as an educator. She is now the ONLY Artistic Educator for Design Essentials and 1 of 2 Artistic Educators/Brand Specialists for Pravana in the state of Arkansas.
Tongela has a total transparent personality and shares her WHOLE life, experiences, talents and lessons with anyone who could learn from them. Her life hasn’t been as easy as most assume because she is always smiling and exudes happiness (because she has learned to cope and survive). Tongela has been a research junkie her whole life from her military career, to obtaining her Bachelor’s degree, to everything she has learned in her career in the beauty industry (as a stylist, salon owner, Certified Master Hair Colorist, and artistic educator). Her diverse experiences prepared her for a new venture in life; an Author in Business.
