Hi, I am Omeka Walden, a Licensed Cosmetologist serving the South Florida Area. I specialize in Trendy Cuts, Color, Hair Enhancement Services (custom extension services), & Healthy Hair Care. I have always had a passion for styling hair. This passion was awakened at the tender age of 15. It just came so natural to me and I really enjoyed it. Practicing this craft on my mother first, and then winning referrals from her co-workers, our neighbors, and friends was how it first started. I loved styling hair but could not see a future in it at that time.
I have always desired to become a business owner. While I wasn't sure what field of business I would pursue, I knew that learning the fundamentals of business were important. So I studied courses at a community college focusing towards Business Administration. At which same time I landed a financially rewarding sales position with a major wireless company. Although I made great money, there were not favorable opportunities for advancement or growth. This made me feel purposeless. I was severely unhappy, stressed and depressed. I found myself so tired of sacrificing so many hours a day, some holidays away from my family. Being a wife and mother of 2 made me desire a path that would allow flexible time at home. I realized after eight years that I had outgrew my job. So I prayed hard for the Lord to direct me on how I could contribute to my family's income and still be available for family time. God is so good, HE sent a perfect stranger to remind me of the "gift" that I was not using. The message was confirmed. Opportunities were discovered as to how I could resign from the wireless company and enroll into Cosmetology School. In 2007 I graduated from Charles Academy of Beauty Culture, in Mobile, AL. I obtained my cosmetology license in 2008.
I have worked in a couple of local and national salons. My experiences were priceless. I learned so much about the business, and various cultures of hair. Ultimately I learned that many clients appreciate one on one services and professionals dedicated to healthy hair. I learned for myself that I enjoy working with clients one on one and being able to set and control the atmosphere. Which is why I offer hair care in a private beauty suite as well as travel to clients and/or their event locations.
I started INSPIRED HAIR in 2009, which offers professional private hair care to a private clientele base and personal referrals. After years of researching virgin hair types, the Remy process, and how to offer Premium extension options competitively I started the company, Inspired Hair Effects (web based business) in 2010.
During the summer of 2012 my family and I decided to take it back to where it all started. South Florida will always be home and we are excited to be back.
