Today we’d like to introduce you to Tayion Randle.
Hi Tayion, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
When I very first start doing hair it was my own. My grandma use to send me to the professional browsers called the “Africans” when I was the age of 12 and 13.
I was very intrigued about how to do my own hair when the trips to the braiding shop became less and less and something needed to be done to my hair. So, I started by taking the crown of my braids down and re-braiding each braid to match the ones that were done by the Africans until I got it right.
Eventually, I would do my whole head and people I know would ask me who did them and they would be surprised it was me behind the work. This is when I started “TaysBeauStu”.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
It has not been always smooth that I will say but all the obstacles and trials I have been through made my business stronger than what it started out as. Rug by after starting “TaysBeauStu.”
I had many clients that wanted freebies because we were friends or a lot of clients not showing up but requesting for their deposit back because they weren’t able to make it or changed their mind but I stayed strict with my policy and gained their respect for my business over time.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I do everything when it comes to hair!
Natural hair, extensions, braids, locs, kids’ hair, my peers, older aged men and women hair, and I also don’t discriminate within race when it comes to hair either because I love to feel welcoming and making my clients feel comfortable knowing that I am the right person to their hair because I know what I’m doing especially despite the race.
I am most proud of how I started off and where I am now even though I have a long journey ahead of me but I can truly say I am blessed to be gifted with this type of talent.
What sets me apart from other hairstylist is that for all braided hair styles I provide the hair for my clients because I know how it feels to need and want your hair done so bad and then the stylist tell you “please bring this certain type of braiding hair with you to your appointment.”
Then you’re looking around lost in the beauty supply because you don’t know exactly what type of braiding hair they prefer, the texture, or the length.
Nowadays, stylist even charges you extra if you bring the wrong brand of braiding hair which is insane that’s why I include the braiding hair within the price of the style and provide it on my own so that way I can be already pre-prepped and prepared when my client walks in the door.
What does success mean to you?
Success is like a rubber ball the harder you work and the harder you push yourself whenever you hit the ground the higher will rise in the end.
