In modern English Satina means “smooth, soft, and delicate”. Although growing up my mother said it meant “sunshine” in an African language. To the clients of Taji Salon I hope to be of service by administering a soft delicate touch along with a healthy dose of sunshine to their hair care experience. My specialties: cuts, color, braids, twists, and so much more!

CARLA

Natural Hair Artist

Durham

My name is Carla Outlaw, and I am a wife and mother of two. I discovered my passion for hairstyling back in 2007 during my high school years. After completing my studies at Winston-Salem State University, I pursued a career in Health Care Administration. Although I wasn't initially interested in Cosmetology, my true passion has always been focused on natural hair. Unfortunately, at that time, there were no specialized programs catering to natural hair care. However, I firmly believe in the importance of embracing our natural beauty, appreciating our unique qualities, including our hair, curves, and complexion.

 

Today, as a licensed Natural Hair Care Specialist, I specialize in various natural hairstyles for women, men, and children. From 2-strand twists to braids, locs, and cornrows, I offer a range of personalized services. Through consultations, I provide tailored hair care solutions to help individuals achieve healthy and beautiful hair. My ultimate goal is to empower women, especially women of color, to embrace their natural beauty and adopt a hair care routine that promotes long-term health.

 

With over 16 years of experience in the industry, I remain up to date with the latest techniques and products to ensure exceptional results for my clients. I am genuinely passionate about helping individuals feel confident and comfortable in their own skin by embracing their natural hair and overall appearance. Together, we can embark on a journey of self-love, self-expression, and celebrating the beauty that lies within us.
