Jeremiah 29:11 says,” For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, plans to give you hope for the future.” This is one of the scriptures I believe and live by.


I started doing hair in elementary school; my passion for hair blossomed by styling the children’s hair in the neighborhood and eventually family members. It has always been a passion of mine to emphasize the beauty in others.


I have over 20 years of cosmetology and beauty consulting experience. I graduated from Washington, D.C. beauty academy in 1990 with my cosmetology license. After graduation, I worked in a couple of salons in Washington D.C.  before I moved to Tampa, FL in 1994 to pursue my passion. I then attended Dudley Cosmetology University in  Kernersville N.C. where I received a certificate in barbering and interlock weave system. Becoming a hair artist was what I was destined for; I now realize that this was planted in me since childhood.


I have mentored and assisted teenagers for over 10 years in the career experience with the Boys and Girls Club. For the past 20 years, Eleth Beauty Palace has provided hands on training for students of accredited cosmetology schools, including Manhattan, Tampa Bay Beauty Institute, and Paul Mitchell. More than 50 % of our interns have continued in this field and are successfully employed as hair care professionals. Many of them credit the experiential learning provided as a major part of their success and a necessary balance to the excellent education they received from their cosmetology school.


The Internship program is designed to facilitate students who are close to graduation from an accredited program and need a place to” practice” or a place that can introduce them to “real world” experience. Eleth Beauty Palace is structured to accommodate these students.


Eleth Beauty Palace team is well trained and has over 20 years of experience in the hair industry. It is a place where beauty, comfort, knowledge, and personalized attention combine to create a memorable and rejuvenating experience.


Our goal is to create a world class experience for both our clients and employees.


Our mission is to build lasting and rewarding relationships with our clients and community through knowledge, wellness, and superior service.
