The salon had a growing celebrity clientele and this is where China got her first taste of how to style celebrity hair.
China was raised in Inglewood, CA, a small suburb in the greater Los Angeles area. One of the earliest childhood styling memories she can recall was her constant frustration that her Barbie’s heads were too small and lacked enough hair for her to style properly. She realized her passion at a very young age when her mother took her to a beauty school where they had dolls with more realistic, life-sized heads. China was enraptured with these dolls, providing her with a more suitable opportunity to style hair. She begged the school owner to give her one of the dolls, and was overjoyed when the owner complied. She would race home every day after school to curl the doll’s hair.
China knew she needed to grow past styling doll hair; she enrolled in beauty school at seventeen. One of her neighbors owned a salon in Beverly Hills and would allow China to come by a couple days a week to study and observe the craft, watching the stylists intently until the doors closed. The salon had a growing celebrity clientele and this is where China got her first taste of how to style celebrity hair. She convinced the salon owner to let her keep their old, broken curling irons, so she could go back home and continue to practice. The owner always agreed, and China was hooked.
After graduating from beauty school, China was ready to make her mark on the world of high-‐end hair. After leaving the Elgin Charles salon for what she thought was a better opportunity, China bounced around the hair circuit for the next few years un2l she finally landed at one of L.A.’s most prestigious boutique salons. From there, her name and reputation has grown considerably. She’s even inspired her younger sister to attend beauty school and become her assistant upon graduation. China is also the creative director and promoter of a line of fashionable ties called “ShowTie”. Keep an eye out for China; she is certainly a force to be reckoned with for years and years to come.
