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

Hi Penny, what are you inspired by?
I am inspired by love, joy, happiness, and most of all my children! I inspire to give my children love and joy because I didn’t have it growing up. I feel if the world had more joy and love we would join together better. I am inspired when I do someone’s hair or makeup and the pure happiness and joy over come their faces, because I just gave a wonderful over all service. I am inspired that one day I will be able to spread love through what I do everyday.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am a Natural Hair stylist. Although I can do all types of hair I absolutely love doing natural hair and Locs. I love helping natural hair flourish and GROW! I definitely want to beat the stereotype that we can’t grow long hair! I cater to my clients and their hair. Each one of my clients has a custom service for them while still maintaining monthly hair maintenance.I am most proud and excited by the reactions and growth my clients see in their hair after coming to me for maintenance of the hair/Locs.I have learned to trust the process and to stay consistent in everything I do! I would love the world to know I pour love in all things I do.. I came from a crack addiction lost custody of my children and now a business owner flourishing. This is only the beginning of Pennys Natural Touch!! Nothing is impossible and I put all the love, energy, good vibrations into my work!

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?
I absolutely love the Rouxpour at Memorial City Mall. They have great food and even better drinks. Kiss Houston is a nice place for a night vibe, but with kids I don’t really get a night life. The museum district is pretty cool

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Well, First off I want to shout out my husband Fabian because he pushes me and supports my business at all cost. I’m grateful because he taught me about LLC., business credit and etc. Another shoutout will had to go to Drum and Drip over at @DGKhouston .. for the incredible work on my husband and I and our cars! You can find them on Instagram.
