Today we’d like to introduce you to DeAndrea Peterson Jackson.
Hi DeAndrea, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers.
I originally started doing locs by starting and maintaining my middle son Omari’s locs. As people would see us out and about they would ask about his hair, from there I began acquiring clientele. I took a step out of faith and walked away from my full-time profession as a medical assistant to pursue locs full-time in May of 2020, it literally took off from there.
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?
Overall, yes. I honestly discovered my passion and made it work for me. Some weeks are slower than others however I’m thankful for it all.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
I am a loctician. I specialize in traditional locs, microlocs, and loc extensions. What sets me apart is my professionalism, the quality of my work as well as my timeliness.
I’m honestly most proud of helping countless clients achieve the healthy natural hair that they desire. My focus is overall loc health. Not only will your locs look good, but they will also flourish.
Where we are in life is often partly because of others. Who/what else deserves credit for how your story turned out?
My clients are my biggest supporters. I appreciate them for trusting me with their locs. My kids; definitely my motivation. Special thanks to my family, they are definitely a Godsend by being there for me and my children.
Allowing me to service my clients without worry.
