Background & Training

I have had a fascination for hair extensions for as long as I can remember. My grandmother opened The Talk Of The Town Beauty Salon nearly twenty five years ago. I literally grew up in a Salon which is still family owned and operated.  After graduating high school in 200 I immediately enrolled in beauty college where it all began! I met a local hair extension artist named Felecia Green whom I trained and apprenticed under for one year. During my training I learned various methods of extensions including; sew in or weave, fusions, micro-link or micro- cylinders and many different styles of braiding. Felecia moved on and eventually did work for Black Hair Magazine.

I continued my education at every opportunity I found. I became certified through Cinderella Hair Extensions, Dreamcatchers Hair Extensions, Simplicity Hair Extensions, Serene Hair Extensions, Great Length Hair Extensions, Microchet and I’ve become an advanced eyelash extension artist through Novalash. I am also certified through New Concepts Hair Goods for lacefront applications as well as advanced non-surgical hair replacement techniques including hair grafting.

Doing hair is not just my career or hobby; it’s my passion. I feel obligated to attend every convention and class that I possibly can ( and I do!) I’ve recently been certified through New Concepts as a national instructor to teach hair extensions and most importantly through the American Cancer Society as a facilitator for the Look Good Feel Better program. Every month I volunteer to help cancer victims feel better about themselves which is something I take a lot of pride in doing.

I volunteer as an ambassador for Wigs for Kids and Children with Hairloss. I fit kids and teens with measurements and molds for custom pieces. I am so grateful to be able to help people and to do something that I love doing. I get to see the gratification in the end result of my work. This is why I put everything I can into my work; my heart and soul.

Tami is certified in the most methods of applications on the central coast.
