About the Owner Amber Le'Shea
Amber aka is a Dallas, Texas native who moved to the Big Apple upon graduating from Spelman College in May of 2007. She worked as a Middle School Mathematics teacher for 5 years in Harlem before embarking on her dream of becoming an entreprenuer. Amber was a hair fanatic and had grown accustomed to scheduling hair appointments with her Harlem stylists every 3 to 4 weeks until she gave birth to her son. Her monthly hair routine shifted drastically as she was no longer able to afford the luxury of wearing hair extensions. There wasn't a hair salon in Harlem that offered such services for an affordable cost, and Amber had to allocate her hair funds towards baby expenses. After months of research, getting her finances in order, and with a little faith, Amber was able to acquire enough funds to open Wicked Weaves. To date Wicked Weaves have provided hair weaving services to over 10,000 fabulous women and now have a second location in Dallas, Texas. Amber still teaches Middle School Mathematics and serves as the Mathematics Department Chair for her school in Brooklyn. A co-founder of the Standing 4 Kaepernick platform, Amber is also a social activist. She has lead protests and created platforms that allows for disenfranchised people to take action against organizations who have neglected to support marginalized groups. Amber is currently working on her book Ratchet Assets, and a Wicked Weaves album that is scheduled to debut Fall of 2017.
