Have you met Shawntel M. Waajid, the co-owner of The Nappy Hutt Natural Hair Care Salon & Braid Center in Savannah, Georgia? The salon was established on February 4, 2012, and Shawntel is a beauty industry veteran with over 40 years of experience. She graduated from Atlanta Technical College with a degree in cosmetology and received her professional license in 2003. Shawntel specializes in Loc Maintenance, Extended Styling, and Natural Hair Care. She is a passionate educator and regularly teaches and sells her products at various hair shows, including the Bronner Brothers, Kevin Kirk’s Jam Session, Premiere Beauty Shows, and the Taliah Waajid World Natural Hair Healthy Lifestyle Event, Juneteenth Atlanta, and other hair and trade shows throughout the year. Shawntel also offers 2-day hands-on seminars focused on business, natural hair, and protective styling. Countless stylists have been trained by her and her team, and they plan to expand their training programs and salon start-ups up and down the east coast. Shawntel has even developed her own product lines for natural hair and skin care for men, women, and children: the Kings Solution and Shawntel Marie line of products. In the cosmetology industry, her ultimate goals are to open her own hair academy, establish a chain of Nappy Hutts across the country, and distribute her hair products and skin care for men and women nationwide. She is passionate about changing the financial trajectory of her community’s lives, and she gives back by making her seminars very affordable to almost anyone who has the desire to learn.
