My name is Latonya Saunderson, founder and co-owner of The Weave Shop (TWS).
I would like to welcome you to our 11th Weave Flash. We dedicate each Weave Flash to news about The Weave Shop and the latest hair and beauty trends.
Spring is finally here! This is one of my favorite times of the year. Spring symbolizes a fresh start, a new beginning.
So why not start with yourself and invest in a new weave?
For our first time readers, let me tell you a little about myself and how The Weave Shop started.
I discovered my true calling, working for a hair salon in the Atlanta area. Feeling so inspired, I decided to open my own salon. Coming from a family of entrepreneurs made starting a business easy for me: my brother Kevin Saunderson, a music legend, is one of the founding triumvirate of techno music; my mother Geraldine Withers is a financial services regional vice president; and my father, now deceased, was a restaurateur and an owner of multiple real estate properties.
With an undeniable passion for hair care and the beauty industry and by building upon a successful idea, the “express weave service,” The Weave Shop (TWS) was born. Being a licensed cosmetologist since 1994, I wanted to provide clients with a reasonable and cost effective way to enjoy a great style - to look great for less! There is no reason to pay hundreds of dollars for extensions, at The Weave Shop the base price for our service is just $50.
After opening the doors in a small office space (400 sq ft), with myself styling and a braider, I outgrew the space within four months and moved to a larger location in the Atlanta area. With the opening of my first storefront in Decatur, GA, my brother Kevin and his wife Sharmeela embraced my vision and TWS’s potential and became business partners. Kevin is President of the franchise entity. Sharmeela is the Creative Director of the company, while I still develop the hairstyle process. This dynamic combination and joining of minds helped to transform TWS into a family owned business. Understanding the need to pass on my entrepreneurial skills to my daughter, Ijaaz Saunderson, an inspiring model and hairstylist in her own right, I brought her into the business, serving the joint role of model and hairstylist: she is one of the faces of TWS and a top stylist. Another face of TWS is my sister Michelle, making TWS truly a family owned and operated business. Currently, in addition to the seven locations in Georgia with one coming soon, there are four locations in New Jersey, five open in Michigan, one in Chicago Illinois and one coming soon in North Carolina. I want The Weave Shop to be all over the country.
With celebrity endorsements from VH1’s Basketball Wives reality star Jennifer Williams, Atlanta’s own Risky (winner of Charm School) and Sarah Stokes (Making of the Band season 2), in addition to the Musical group OMG, The Weave Shop is the fastest growing hair extension salon in the United States.

I am so excited about our new technique: THE BRAIDLESS SEW-IN! NO BRAIDS, NO GLUE.
You can get to your scalp which allows you to treat and condition your own hair and scalp.
IT’S NATURAL AND FREE FLOWING.
If you like to wear your hair in a high ponytail, the Braidless Sew-in is what you are looking for. The Braidless Sew-in works great on any hair type and lasts up to 4 months. You will get an extremely flat result. We recommend getting a monthly retouch at our salon to get the longest wear out of your Braidless Sew-in.
Our Braidless Sew-in costs only $200 for a full head.
Check out my YouTube video where I give a demonstration.

TWS Southfield Plus Owner, Savannah Thompkins, would like to share with you her personal story and her experience with The Weave Shop.
I started working as a licensed stylist at TWS Southfield, the first day it opened. I was attracted to how pretty it was with the pink walls and bright white floors. I was promoted to assistant lead stylist for about 4 months, before I was eventually promoted to lead stylist. I put in a lot of long hours and hard work, but it has definitely paid off. I was given the opportunity to take over and own TWS Southfield Plus earlier this year. I was scared and a bit overwhelmed, but am very blessed to be doing something that I have always dreamt about. The power of words and what you put out in the universe is an amazing thing. I have always said, that I wanted to own my own salon by the time I was 25 yrs old and I am actually doing it! I have a deep passion for hair and love when clients leave my shop looking beautiful.
I see things a lot differently now, that I am a shop owner compared to being an employee. Lamarsha Saunderson is my mentor and now I understand her strong work ethic and drive. With the help from her and the support from my family and boyfriend, I am where I’m at now.
Being a mother of 2 young children, I want to be a role model for them. I want them to be proud of me and show them, that they can follow their dreams too. I love working here and one day I would love to open a Weave Shop in Florida. I want to go further; I don’t want to stop here!
