Meet Calin Peterson of Calihair

Today we’d like to introduce you to Calin Peterson.

Hi Calin, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
Hello!! I am a licensed cosmetologist from Saint Louis, Missouri but I currently reside In Nashville, Tennessee for college. I started off by braiding my little sister’s hair when I was only 8 years old. By the time I reached middle school I had friends who would let me braid their hair often. Once i reached my junior year in high school I had a full blown business. I attended North Technical High School for cosmetology while still enrolled at McClure South-Berkeley for my general education. I attended North Tech my junior and senior year of high school and I received my cosmetology license June of 2019.

Since then, I have been working as a hairstylist and released my own hair growth oil. I currently attend Tennessee State University for Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing. I love being an entrepreneur so I decided to continue my education in Business.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
There were not many bumps along the road for me during my journey. The most challenging thing I had to endure was attending two schools at once while still working and enjoying life as a teenager. I learned at a young age how to balance everything going on in my life and time management.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about Calihair?
Calihair is my brand that specializes in braids, weaves, and natural hair styles. I am mostly known for my braids because I started out in my career as a braider. I branched out to weaves and natural hair once I received my license. What sets Calihair LLC apart from others is the passion and professionalism I put behind my work. I try my absolute best on each and every client while being professional to give the best service possible. Calihair LLC also have a hair growth oil named “liquid gold”. This oil can be used by men and women to help them grow their hair and have a healthy scalp.

Where do you see things going in the next 5-10 years?
In the next 5-10 years, I plan on having a full global natural hair care line while owning a few full service salons. I know I do not want to be doing hair forever but I love the beauty industry so I plan to keep going but in a different route.
