Rising Stars: Meet Sakeenah Khayree

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sakeenah Khayree.

Hi Sakeenah, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
My Name is Sakeenah Khayree born and raised in beautiful Orlando. For as long as I can remember, I have always had a passion for people and all things beauty!

I started doing hair at the early age of 13 seeking more knowledge I quickly sought more information, and I will always remember contacting John Casablanca’s Institute. Which never really worked out just because my parents did not understand my vision!

Long story short, I pressed into providing hair and makeup for family, friends, or whoever would give me an opportunity to style them. So many of my clients ask me about my story. The story of how I launched Supreme Makeup and Hair Designs LLC and the places it has taken me.

I have learned in life that everybody has a story to tell. Whether grand or humble, we’ve all had experiences that have shaped us into the people we are today. My passion for people and love for beautiful artistry have given me the opportunity to share it with the world!

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
The obstacle that I found was that most bridal hair and makeup companies were owned and operated by a woman who did not look like me, so when I applied to work with them before the launch of Supreme Makeup and Hair Designs LLC.

The opportunity was not given to me because they were not open to the idea of me representing their brand, so my challenge was to create a company that welcomed all people regardless of their demographic and provide hair and makeup services to a diverse client base.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
Supreme Makeup and Hair Designs is a diverse, elite hair and makeup service. Our team creates custom and unique looks for a growing multicultural era.

We have a wide client base that ranges from the everyday ordinary women to the classic bride. You will have a royal experience from the initial contact to the isle. It is important for me to captivate and represent various and individual styles for each one of my clients through my work.

What sets us apart is the impeccable pride that we take in every service, and we believe every job is a self-portrait of the person behind the work.

What does success mean to you?
Success to me means running a company that conducts business with honesty and integrity while creating long-lasting relationships with our clients. It also means reaching my goals and accomplishing what I set out to do and also living life full circle.
