Our Tribe

Our tribe are the cool, confident, culturally conscious mentors, moms, aunties, and grandmas who embrace the natural kinky/curly aesthetic. They have advanced in their careers, started new businesses, raised families, or have become leaders in their communities and around the world. They represent the beauty and brilliance that other women aspire to be. 

We know them because we are them! Below are the real stories of some of the women who represent the Rhythm Wigs brand.

When did you find your rhythm?
When I stopped giving my power to others

How do you respond when asked your age?
I tell them my age, but I often forget I’m 54.

What’s the most courageous thing you’ve done?
Sued the company that fired me because I wouldn’t remove my braids.  I was in my early 20s and I won!

What do you want to be when you grow up?
I’m finally grown up now (smile).  I now spend the majority of my time doing what I love to do. As the creator of the Rhythm Wigs line, my business allows me to do that; bring together the best of what I have in my heart and what I’ve learned to do with my head…making beautiful, useful things.

Look and listen to those who came before you. See and hear what they are telling you. Learn from their mistakes and successes.

I must have an outlet for serving others. I’m fully authentic when I’m serving and fund-raising for women in prison.

What’s your favorite night out, alone or with whom?
I went alone to see August Wilson’s play, “King Hedley, happy that I did not allow another distraction to keep me from being there. Afterwards, I walked across the street and enjoyed a nice martini.

My wedding gown circa 1995, purchased for $600 at a small retail boutique in Smyrna, GA. I didn’t seek anyone’s opinion. It was liberating!

Getting on a zip line at age 65 at YS Falls in St. Elizabeth, Jamaica.  I didn’t tell my children or grandchildren before because they might’ve talked me out of it. They just saw me waving from the trees!
