Natural Hair Educators & Dreadlock Experts
VANITY was founded in 2012 in the burgeoning neighborhood of Bedford Stuyvesant Brooklyn, NYC. VANITY thrives on the principles of tranquility and discretion. This basic salon feature draws in women & men as far as Pennsylvania & Delaware every month.
In 2020 VANITY opened two additional studios in Suffolk County Long Island, offering loc maintenance services and laser hair removal for brown & dark skin tones.
In 2022 VANITY-Brooklyn converted into a different business model and focused on servicing clients in the Long Island studios only.
In 2023 VANITY was highlighted in the news article "Ten Best Natural Hair Salons in New York City."
In 2023 the owner of VANITY challenged Dr. Joanne Cornwell, Founder of Sisterlocks and Michelle Bryant, Sisterlocks Master Trainer of the Sisterlocks Corporation, for unethical practices. This brought world wide attention to the salon and the salon's newest YOUTUBE channel "Ask a Loctician."
VANITY encourages clients to maintain healthy skin and hair through education and practice outside of the salon. Empowering clients is the #1 priority. How do we do this? Discussions of internal health, diet, hormones, and stress levels are incorporated into consultations and single service sessions to help clients manage their expectations.
