Meet the owner & artist behind the creativity of Hair Musiq
Shontai started her passion for beautifying at the tender age of 5, where she taught herself how to braid. Her Aunt was a full-time student in hair school. Whenever ‘Auntie’ would come home to practice with her manikins, Shontai would grab her doll and produce a hands-on practice session. With practice made perfection, where Shontai would later be known as “The girl who does hair” around the neighborhood. Proms, parties, and anything that had to do with the newest styles, were light work. In 1999, Shontai worked in her first salon, under owner Rita of Rita’s Hair Design, in East Hartford, CT. Years later, her hobby turned into a passion, which then turned into hunger and ingredients for a professional career. First came education w/ schooling from All Natural Beauty in Windsor, CT and later to Legacy International in East Hartford, CT. In the midst of education were internships, Hair Care seminars/training, Hair/Fashion Shows, and Wedding/Bridal styling. Shontai is now a devoted mother with a motivation for perfection. In conjunction to cosmetology, Shontai is a skilled & qualified hair care specialist and loctitian. She is also a professional Wedding & Event Planner with her own business, “Style Drama Event Planning, LLC” in the Greater Hartford, CT area. Specializing in general hair care, her strengths are, but not limited to: Locs, natural hair, transitioning hair, chemically processed hair, creative up-do styling, and silkening treatments. Shontai (also known to many as ‘Taye’ and re-named ‘The Hair Musician’) is a mentor to those wanting to learn and be inspired. We’re hoping you enjoy all that Hair Musiq has to offer.
