About this pro

Hi there I'm a stylist in Harlem NYC I love my city and the beautiful mix of cultures and I love hair. Are you seeking bouncy shiny healthy hair. Be that sassy classy diva. I've been with same salon almost 7 years with a temporary leave this year to help with an ailing relative. I believe when you walk through that salon door you leave the world behind. It's all about you and having a great experience and I always educate my clients how to maintain their hair. As a client no matter where you go ALWAYS know what products their using its not a secret. I'm on strivers row 138th & 7th. It's all about healthy hair first would love to pamper you. 

I love to focus on healthy hair first then comes the good part beauty. I love cutting and I especially love texture cutting. Curls should be optional to the cut not that once your curls are done you look a mess. I believe clients SHOULD be educated in home maintenance so they can ALWAYS look good

    I found Ms. Knight to be very professional and diligent in making sure I was pleased with her work, and I was! I've been getting compliments on her work from several different people.
