As operator of Touch of Heaven Artistry and a creative soul, Markeita sees hair as a form of expressive art using each client as a canvas. Touch of Heaven Artistry, a single operator mini salon, allows her to deliver polished, unique protective styles to a clientele that has reached over 200+. Coined the “Protective Style Curator”, Markeita has grown Touch of Heaven Artistry into one of Humble’s Top Rated Salons.
In 2017, she launched Studio 29:11 Salon Gallery, a salon park that houses amazing creatives who are equally passionate about the beauty industry. It is her goal to rewrite the narrative that surrounds African American operated and patronized salons. Her second salon venture allows her to do just that, one stylist at a time by teaching time management, client retention, business operations and more. Markeita is intentional about her role as a leader and explicitly leads by example.
With 2018 behind her, she anticipates greater opportunities to educate stylists on proper salon etiquette, as well as operate more in another area of passion – hands on training and the sharing of hair care knowledge to non-stylists. Markeita has been blessed to present for brands such as Cantu, Motions, Kinky Curly Yaki, Kinkistry, TeamNatural, Bella Kinks, Uncle Funky’s Daughter, Naturally Happy Hair, and many more.
