Healing Through The Hair

Eighteen years ago, I was arrested by seven undercover cops, handcuffed and dragged out of my own salon in Texas. I was guilty of the "crime" of braiding hair without a cosmetology license. Today, I'm free. U.S. Judge Sam Sparks ruled that Texas Braiding Laws were unconstitutional. This fight for the right to teach the next generation braiding is today's modern day civil rights movement!
