TRENDZ by Tammy
Ms. Tammy, owner of Trendz by Tammy Black Hair Salon, master hairstylist specializing in black hair, grew up in a group home for girls after her mother was murdered across the street from her childhood home. In high school, she won a $10,000 Coca-Cola Martin Luther King Jr scholarship. She made her case to Vocational Rehabilitation Association that she was a handicap of the state due to the fact that she didn’t have parents and wanted to go to college. That bit of genius landed Ms. Tammy another $1,500 a semester for college. This allowed her to attend the college of her choice. Without the scholarships, she would have had to attend a state college. Ms. Tammy graduated from Xavier University of Louisiana with a Bachelor in Accounting.
It wasn’t until her senior year in college she was bitten by the cosmetology bug. She attended Molers Beauty College for 15 months. Once Ms. Tammy graduated from Molers Cosmetology College, she was ready to put the skills she had accumulated to work in the real world. She was also ready to leave New Orleans and move to Houston, Texas. In August 2016 Ms. Tammy became a Goldman/Sachs 10,000 small business alumni.
