Born and raised in Arkansas, Tongela is a licensed cosmetologist and entrepreneur. She believes that life should be a cultural experience driven by passion and healthy relationships. She is a free spirited person who loves to create exotic looks through hairstyles and makeup. She has participated in the American Hair Idol Battle, Fist Full of Showstoppers, Hair Invasion and she was one of the key hairstylists for the 2010 Little Rock Fashion Week and the 2014 Designers' Choice Fashion Preview. This career is her life; she loves dealing with people and believes that everyone deserves a personal stylist. Her dream is to build a networking empire within the beauty industry founded on support. She stands out as more than your average hairstylist as she loves to research the chemistry of hair….down to the products used to give the best results.  She has already dedicated 2015 to rebrand herself as a business and hair concierge consultant since she wishes to fulfill the demand for a diverse educator locally and abroad.  Tongela is a trusted stylist in Arkansas and frequently gets asked hair questions from potential clients as well as other stylists.  To keep the dialogue interactive, she created and manages her personal as well as salon’s website, social media accounts, and mobile app.  In 2014, her efforts to educate caught the attention of TWO national brands and in 2015, she became the ONLY Design Essentials Educator and the ONLY Pravana Brand Specialist and Artistic Educator in the state of Arkansas.

Tongela is a U.S. Army veteran and she has a Bachelor’s degree in Small Business Management (Entrepreneurship Emphasis) from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. Believing in continued education, she wrote a business plan focused on the overall growth of an innovative salon and its styling team. In 2012, this led to the birth of….The Diamond Salon!
