  Latoya
Synergy Assistant

Latoya is a native of Charlotte. All her life she has loved and lived for all things “girly.”. She trained under excellent instructors at the Aveda Institute of Charlotte. Our guests are totally satisfied  with her top of the line pampering head and hand massages.Statistical data shows that five percent of the general population applies hair relaxers to permanently straighten their curly or wavy hair straight. Latoya advises for those with chemically relaxed ethnic hair, to be cautious about certain products they apply to their hair and to stop using home perms. If a relaxer is not applied correctly it can create severe breakage and other serious problems. African-American hair has the tendency of becoming fragile after it has been relaxed. Because of this extra precaution is required since the hair has reduced tensile strength and can therefore break easily.Latoya is a mother of a lovely daughter, AaNiyiah and son, Chanon Jr. She loves to spend time trying different styles on her daughter’s hair. Latoya grew up surrounded by a big circle of friends and family .
