This week, we sat down with hair stylist Laquinta Little, to learn more about her career journey and favorite Fantasia products. Here's what we found out.

  • Can you tell IC Fantasia's audience a little about who you are and your background?

I grow up in a hair setting my grandmother owned a hair salon and I always helped her with colors perms, hot combs, and much more. Growing up in the lower east side, everyone had braids and I knew I could do them! And yes, I started at the tender age of 11. I've been working in the same place since I was 16 years old at First Choice Barbershop in the lower east side of New York. It was hard in the beginning because I had to go to school and get good grades if I wanted to work, but I made it happen. My career started at a young age, I wasn't saving money, and it became a problem maintaining a steady income until I learned the skills needed.

  • What do you like most about being a hairstylist?

The best part of being a hairstylist is meeting all these greeting personalities and they become long-time clients who are more like family.

  • What's your typical day like?

A typical day in my life is having five to six clients with a lot of laughs and great music.

  • What are some of your favorite hairstyles you like to perform?

A lot of my clients like my French braids but I love doing a signature style. I call them OFFICIAL QSTYLEZ.
