The Mother of Khamit Kinks – Taeisha Black

On this Mother’s Day, I’d like to take time to recognize our Manager Taeisha Black.  Taeisha has been a member of the Khamit Kinks team since the late 90’s and from the beginning she brought with her that special gift of nurturing others.

Taeisha started out as the assistant to the manager and honed her skills, becoming a serious and active listener.  A naturally caring and nurturing person, Taeisha quickly made her mark on the company when she stepped into the role of Manager.  She had a genuine way of connecting with clients that left them feeling seen and heard.

As a licensed cosmetologist and aesthetician, Taeisha brings to her work an informed and knowledgeable skill set.  Our clients love interacting with Taeisha because of her cool and easy way.  With a soft-spoken voice, she puts clients at ease, but don’t take her softness for weakness, this is one strong sister.    She knows her stuff and she doesn’t suffer fools as readily these days.

Taeisha is also an avid student of living who diligently takes courses in life studies, self-improvement and entrepreneurship. Recently Taeisha has taken on the job of writing a monthly article for The Coil Review in their “Newbie” section, which is aimed at those new to natural hair.  You can see her written advice starting with the May issue of The Coil Review.

It is Taeisha who often comes up with creative ideas for honoring and celebrating our clients.  She loves feeding people, so she often recommends some type of party, like the year she recommended a surprise birthday party for me.  Or the time she said we had to have a Client Appreciation party.  Taeisha is committed to our company and every day makes sure what needs to be done gets taken care of, which includes insuring the accuracy of our scheduling, communicating with Stylists, clients, and our Admin team, placing orders for the endless supplies we require, shipping out online orders, and the list goes on and on.

Taeisha is naturally creative and is often seen with a cutting-edge and unique hairstyle, inspiring clients to ask for the style she is sporting.

We have all benefited from Taeisha’s informed and caring ways and Khamit Kinks has definitely been enhanced by her steady presence.  As a team we all salute her and the Mother energy that permeates her every intention.  She has all the markings of that Mother principle, being loving, nurturing, receptive, devoted, caring and kind.  And though she’s mom like, I still consider her my daughter.  Thank you Taeisha for all the years of love and care!

    Taeisha is everything that was written is this article and more. Four years ago when I did my big chop she was the first person that I came in contact with. Without my hair being wash or styled I was sold. She is a delight & great asset to have at Khamit Kinks!!

    I have always dealt with all my online ordering with Taeisha (approx. 3 years) she has always been patient with me with all my questions and concerns. Just like a mother should! Kudos to you Taeisha. Thank you Schvone from California!

    Taeisha is a joy!!! Beautiful tribute to a beautiful woman! Khamit Kinks would not be Khamit Kinks without her. I’ve been a client for over ten years and she remains as dedicated and committed as my first time. She is truly a blessing!

    Taeisha called me regarding an online order. She was really helpful and patient with me, and honest about the product. I received the order and needless to say, her advice was perfect!
    Thank you Taeisha! I hope to visit Khamit Kinks one day.
    Anu, maybe a West Coast salon…? Just a thought. 🙂
