We had the good fortune of connecting with Admire Dimoh and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Admire, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
Well the uniqueness of my name is where it all began. I wanted women to “Admire” their beauty and what better way to do this than giving them an experience of beautifying their crowns.

Each woman that sits in my chair is transformed through my gift of braiding. Proverbs 18:16 says that my gift will make room for me and I knew that God had a greater purpose for me to inspire, empower, and transform women through my versatile braiding techniques. I am a proud west African woman and braiding is a cultural expression of my people. I wanted to find a way to merge my culture and expand my brand beyond.

I love doing protective styles as this is my area of expertise that I have perfected when it comes to utilizing the hair, the texture, how I braid, and finishing touches. While my passion is braiding, I don’t want to limit the many variations of beauty and have goals to expand my brand by teaching classes on the foundations of braiding, become an advocate to speak on topics that affect African woman and birthing my foundation to help young girls in my country that come from disadvantaged backgrounds that braiding has afforded me the opportunity.

As a young girl I had big dreams to be successful, for someone to know my name and my work to be admired by some of the greats.

Who would have known this little girl from Sierra Leone, West Africa would be seen in interviews magazines, stages and booked by and named a celebrity braider.

I’m truly walking in my purpose!

Prayer is the key to my success and my willingness to be teachable and perfect my gift. I am not where I want to be but my advice to upcoming hairstylists is this: Value your gift and don’t compare who you are to others or rush your process. Everything happens in God’s timing. Stay prayed up, stay determined, be patient, master your craft, stay focused, and never give up!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
For me personally, I love tourists stuff. But it all depends on my friends interests. I love food, music and history.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
S/o to my Girlfriend and big sister Sia M for this opportunity and for all she does.
