HISTORY

At the tender age of 3, Tei picked up a comb and hasn't dropped it since. She always loved doing hair and started doing everyone in her neighborhood's hair at the age of 8; from little girls her age to even older women who were friends of her step mother.Her love for hair continued until high school and her techniques were cultivated by on-the-job training at her Aunt's salon "Hannah's Place" in Largo, Maryland. She worked as the salon assistant when she was 18 while taking university classes.She knew her passion was putting smiles on people's faces one hairstyle at a time and before enrolling for her last year at her university she decided to attend beauty school.

Tei attended AVEDA WASHINGTON D.C and gained the love and support of many of her teachers, directors, and fellow students as one of the top cosmetology students in her school.She began to play in make-up right before starting her year at AVEDA and continued to sharpen her skills in beauty school.Her make-up techniques were so good that she would be chosen to teach many of the make-up segments at school and even won a trip to represent AVEDA DC and compete in the AVEDA Full Potential competition in Nashville, Tennessee. She took her crafted make-up and hair skills and techniques and continued on in the cosmetology industry gaining clientele and building THE TEI TOUCH brand.  

She has worked with many including doing loc maintenance and styling for MMG rapper from her area WALE, hair and make-up for the late Daisy Lewellyn of reality TV SHOW Blood, Sweat, and HEELS, and make-up for reality star Maja Sly of reality TV SHOW Cutting It in The ATL.She has worked in make-up and hair for many fashion shows and video/photo shoots in the DMV area and continues to push her brand beautifying the everyday woman and still reaching to work with celebrity clients.

Tei has recently honed in on her make-up artistry taking it to the next level by studying with Celebrity make-up artists such as Renny Vasquez, Sam Fine, Tatiana Ward "BeatFace Honey",Anagilda Acevedo, Keita Moore "Kilprity", and Tiyana Robinson.Her studying has taken her artistry to the next level and catapulted her brand.
