"Put one piece of hair out of place. Not everything has to be together"

I always ran from the idea of being a stylist. I saw so many people go to school and never do anything with it. I decided in 2012 that I was not going to be one of those people that went to school and never got a license. In school I still was not as focused as I should have been but, I completed and got my license. I worked in two salons before starting at the Blow Dry Room. I feel like my journey with hair has just begun. I am more focused as ever and ready for whatever comes. 

I learned about The Blow Dry Room when my cousin tagged me to the Smash Glam page. I researched the company, and realized I needed to be a part of Aisha and Tiffany’s team. My beauty industry inspirations are Trisha Bagley, Tippi Shorter and Tokyo Styles.

My favorite Aveda hair product is the Dry Remedy Masque treatment. I like to remind myself daily that "My success is guaranteed"...make sure you do the same and check out my video below!

Have a great day!

Meet Our Team: Meika

 Meika “Stylez By Meme” Cheatum 

Hometown: Kansas City, Kansas

Years in Industry: 5 years+ 

“Take care of your hair from the inside out! Eating healthy and drinking plenty of water will definitely show through in your hair."

 I became a cosmetologist by chance. While styling the hair of friends and family, I fell in love with the creativity of it. After going through a divorce and moving to Topeka, KS my Aunt, whom was my biggest support system, told me to go to school and get my license. That was the best advice that led to me making the best decision I have ever made. 

I learned of the BDR through owners and good friends Aisha & Tiffany. When they decided to add hair styling to their photography and makeup firm, Smash Glam. They presented me with joining the team and without a doubt I was on board.

My beauty industry inspiration is Stephanie “Hair Magician” Thomas. When first starting out she took the time to take me under her wing and show me the in’s and outs of this industry. She taught me to not be afraid to take chances and be confident in everything I do.

My favorite Aveda hair product is the Smooth Infusion line; because it allows us natural girls to transform our beautiful curls to a Sleek and Smooth style. 

 This is Meika signing off...Have a great Wednesday, and remember to always....

 “Be your own kind of Beautiful”
