Founder and Owner Mariama Toomey has been styling hair since the age of 10. Originally from Liberia, Mariama was often with her mother Hawa who was a famous dance performer and would style the hair of Aminata a dancer also with Hawa. During Mariama’s play time Aminata would say, “Come Mariama and do my hair”. It was those experiences that gave birth to the career of Mariama and fueled her passion for becoming a professional Hair Stylist and Artist.
Since 2002 Mariama has focused her craft on Natural Hair and has not deviated from this path. Today Mariama has collected her years of experience along with inspiration from her mother, friends and loyal clients and centered them at Mayee Natural Hair Salon.
