Today we’d like to introduce you to Tanis Evans.

Hi Tanis, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers.
Well, I graduated from James Island Charter High School in 09′. I wanted to take a break from school before thing about going to college.

So I got into a relationship and then had my first child… when you have kids you have to work started working at Sally beautiful supply needed more money then went to Paul Mitchell got fired from there then work at Iqor a call center working on the phone for direct TV… realized I was at work more than being home with my kid so after having my second child while at Iqor.

I made a decision to trust in God and walk on faith and I started doing loc I went to get my business license and started working for myself and started doing loc from family and friends to Brandon Shell and NFL football players I’m home with my kids and working when I want to work and spend time with my kids without any issues.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
The road wasn’t smooth… I had to figure out a plan to figure out how to build clientele because I had never worked for myself or had my own business.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
So, I’m a Loctician. I specialize in maintenance in locs. I start locs maintain/ retwist existing locs… I make sure my client’s hair is nice and healthy and I also educate them on what products to use and what not to use… I am most proud of how far God has brought me through what I’ve been through.

I’m proud of how many different people I’ve met proud that people love my work and drive hours just for me to show them my craft God blessed me with I never thought about doing hair for a living… what sets me apart from other stylists is ME; my interaction with my clients I treat them all like family and my style is different.

Is there a quality that you most attribute to your success?
Ambition most definitely really doing the work to make things happen was important to my success.
