From daytime work style to evening GLAM in just a matter of minutes!
I want you to walk with me over here to the “salon” part of the studio. Meet Xavier Cisca Ross and her model Loko. Thank you ladies both for being here with us today.
Xavier is the owner of Zavia Beauty Boutique, a mobile hair and makeup styling business here in Augusta. She provides services such as makeup, braids, locks, hair enhancement techniques, and now braided wigs.
And if you notice an accent, it’s because she’s from the islands!
“I’m from Trinidad. I grew up in Brooklyn, New York. My career in makeup and hair started 23 years ago in Brooklyn. And I loved it! I knew that’s what I wanted to do. I did not know I wanted to end up doing it for television or backstage or anything like that. I knew I wanted my own makeup line one day or something like that. And so I just went for it. I never gave up.
“I moved to Atlanta 13 years ago. And ended up working for CNN. And I worked on a few anchors there for three years and after I built my clientele there, my great resume was really, really fun.
“A position opened up at the Weather Channel, and I managed the hair and makeup department there for several years.”
