We love to honor our members that help make this organization work. Their input, contribution, and dedication go far in building and bridging our community of industry professionals. This month's spotlight is Jontae Robinson.
My name is Jontae! I was born and raised in Washington, D.C., where I currently reside. I am a wife and a mother of 2 girls.
I have been in the cosmetology industry since 2003! I have an EXTREME passion for haircare! I specialize in Natural hair care and styling but I am thoroughly qualified and equipped to service my very diverse clientele that ranges from natural to relaxed, short to long, mature to contemporary, male and female, and also to include locs, color treated, and extension services. My work has been published in Hair n Motion magazine, and Black Hair Sophisticates Magazine along with a step by step tutorial and inserts from an interview.
Over the years I strive to stay forefront of this industry by staying involved in the trade shows and continuing education classes! I have earned my senior cosmetology and barbering licenses, as well as 2 certifications as a hair loss specialist. I am thoroughly devoted to perfecting my craft through continued education and “creating YOUR look with HEALTHY hair!” I am a member of a prestige group of professionals, the National Beauty Culturist league, where I have the opportunity to serve on the education committee and the charity committee. I attended the IOC and earned my master’s degree in cosmetology studies!
As an educator I have taught at the Brand Building Expo in Silver spring MD, The Bronner Brothers hair show in Atlanta, and have orchestrated classes on my own in the DMV area. I had an amazing opportunity to serve for the MD Board of Cosmetology as a sponsor in their apprenticeship program where I am able to guide an up-and-coming stylist! I am also the creator of Mahoganii L.O.C.S. Loc n Twist Puddin! Where LOCS stand for Lovin On Curly Strands! This product was created to fill the void in the natural hair community for a product that gives the results our community desires as well as provides nourishment to the scalp and every strand it bears!
More recently I am a new author! I published my 1st book named
An Offering of Thoughts to Consider When… Raising Vaginas”. In my book I share how I was raised and how those experiences has affected my adulthood, and how my childhood experiences influence the way I raise my girls. I wrote this book to initiate a culture that works to disintegrate the shame women feel about their body and sexuality, and instead celebrate the essence of being a female.
Not only am I creative BEYOND restraint, and EXTREMELY knowledgeable, but I pride my self in offering Exceptional Customer service and professionalism! I create the ultimate experience for my clients and always careful to never compromise the integrity of the hair.
