We had the good fortune of connecting with Tamara/Tiara Castille and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Tamara/Tiara, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
Our thought process was to combine our love for the beauty industry, enhancing women’s beauty, empowering self esteem, and our tenacious willpower to create generational wealth for our children and those to come.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Something that sets us apart is that we are aiming to be the Jill of all trades in the hair industry, offering all lengths, types and colors! We aren’t no where near where we’re headed but this process definitely hasn’t been easy, but we are destined for greatness and it’s in us to be great! The lessons we’ve learned along the way is never give up, even on our worst days we have to put it in overdrive, we just do what we have to do now so we can do you what we want to do later. We want the world to know that The Skai Luxe Collection is coming for everything that has our name on it, and we’re beautifying all ladies no matter what color. We are ALL beautiful!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
We would definitely take her to some of downtown Houston’s hidden gems! Tiara’s boyfriend is a manager at Flava Bar so we would definitely go there for a good time! They have such amazing food and drinks! The galleria to shop and mani and pedi’s to top it off!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Definitely our parents they are our driving force and encouragement throughout this whole process. Tamara’s children are another reason why we work as hard as we do we can’t wait to see what greatness will come from them emulating our business tactics! And also our late grandfather Huey Augustine who was a master entrepreneur and definitely ignited a fire within us for entrepreneurship at a very young age.
