Conversations with Jahanna McGowan

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jahanna McGowan. 

Hi Jahanna, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
I started off in 6 grade as a way to put food on the table turned into my passion I just took off. I’ve been providing for my little brother & myself since sophomore year of high school. Started working I shops at 17 I have a lot of people with faith in me so I was taught along the way on ways to keep it professional. I’m really blessed to grow up with nothing but have so many people around me that loves me & supports my dreams none of this would be possible without my support system. It’s only going to go up from here 

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
Being homeless for most of my life has definitely been the most challenging thing. I’ve been doing it by myself for so long It’s like having the world on your shoulders 

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I’ve done lashes, but I’ve been doing braids since 6 grade & I’m 20 now I love it the most I’m most proud of my stitch feed ins braids it has been a ride perfecting my craft on feed ins period so to be where I am makes me very happy. I know we have some cold braider in my city, but I think what sets apart from the rest is the fact that I have a great attitude & I treat my clients like family. Anyone who has ever sat in my chair has came back because I leave that mark on people, they just automatically love everything about me the energy & vibes are always there 

Can you talk to us a bit about the role of luck?
I wouldn’t call it luck because everyone has the potential to be great just takes a lot of practice & dedication but if I had to say it would be good luck, I’ve had the pleasure of having clients that are mature & don’t do the most. Which I know a lot of stylist have that problem
