I have worked in the beauty industry for more than 20 years. With this experience, I have learned that beauty manifests from the love given in service. 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!
