My Name is Kenie James, owner and founder of Hair La Belle.
I am an African by origin and have been doing hair like braids, dreadlocks since I was 10 years old because braiding is part of my culture. I love and enjoy doing it and making people beautiful is my passion. I moved to Europe in 1999, and learned more about white or Caucasian hair care. I loved working in the beauty industry so I decided to go to beauty school of cosmetology when I moved to the United States to San Jose in 2007 and got my license as a cosmetologist. I moved to Sacramento and started working from home in my garage and became very popular so rented a booth in a beauty salon.
As time went on, my clientele expanded to the point of needing help so I decided to open my own salon business to create a friendly and better environment for my clients. Because of my root as an African and learning experience in white or Caucasian hair care, I am specialized in natural and biracial hair care and have styled various natural hair texture grades from the likes of Stevie Wonder.
