JANUARY 2017 – ISSUE 13 – BEAUTY!
Mushiya Tshikuka, breakout star of the new WEtv reality show “Cutting It In the ATL” is a mesmerizing, magnetic presence now available for speaking and brand collaboration opportunities. Mushiya makes an unforgettable impression on audiences offline and online, and works with Event Planners, Talent Bookers, Producers, Editors and Brand Managers on projects to quickly connect with new audiences to entertain, inspire and encourage.
As the founder of The Damn Salon, Mushiya has married high-fashion, edgy aesthetics with the celebration of women’s curly and kinky textures to usher in a “New Era” in Natural hair. With risqué marketing (their tagline is “Hair That Causes Horny Husbands”) and bold styles that emphasize volume and funky pops of color, Mushiya and The Damn Salon have transformed attitudes toward natural hair across the nation, with their touring salon division, Taste of Damn, which hosts pop-up styling suites in cities like Oakland, Houston, New York, Washington D.C. and Charlotte. Mushiya is an engaging interviewee with VERY defined opinions on today’s beauty culture. Originally from the Congo, Mushiya came to the US by way of Montreal, which gives her a cosmopolitan flair. As part of her mission to redefine the idea of natural hair and provide women with more options to celebrate curly and kinky textures, she launched Runway Curls, a line of 100% HumaHair and Blended extensions that flawlessly blend with natural curl patterns.
