The Naked Truth

One of ERMAG’s most paramount interviews was with Jackson, Florida’s very own Torie Jones. We were so intrigued about her passion of her body art that we decided to go a little deeper and enlighten everyone else on her true craft. Torie is a renowned Body Art Artist who uses the natural human body in a picturesque way. Using the most intense hues, Torie swings a brush and lands vibrant and vivid results. What is more captivating than the human body in the natural? Body art consist of piercings as well as paint. Between the two, they are both meaningful in many parts of the world in different eras of life. This is indeed broad. After the previous interview ERMAG felt that there was more to be told. We proudly present Torie’s deepest and inner most thoughts of The Naked Truth.

“The Naked Truth”

Toppings of color and design lay just right. The thrill of creating beauty to the senses and knowing it can only happen once this way. That one time encounter between you and me, no matter how many times we meet. I need you nude only to express my true strokes. Originally placed and scripted as it flows from the brush to your skin. This formula can only take place with you in motion to form positions that will be suspended in time.

It’s something eminence about you, now that we represent each other. Maybe it’s the way you have taken on the altered ego that has blended into your persona. Seeing beauty of the Egyptians ancestors transcend out of you and into Goddess status, quickly we fall into scene by scene as the photographer steals you away. Feeling connections that are not really there because as soon as it is washed away, so am I.

This is how body art makes me feel each and every time I am deeply involved. Although it is my responsibility to make sure I am representing your imagery as you dreamed, I find myself, my style forced into letting the art just happen.

Unlike the Egyptian, Roman, Greek and Middle Eastern cultures, this is more for my gratification, than for disguise, religion, or communication. My art comes from my emotions and what customs unconsciously I have been groomed to believe. It goes deeper than paint, deeper than just a one dimensional concept to express on a breathing canvas. As I am always seducing my ideas right into my hands, so it challenges the imperfect, to the perfect lines. Achieving what is almost a guess to me but has been already played out into my universe. The inevitable never missing a beat replaying what I have been exposed to like a movie. The visions become my soundtrack. The various statues, paintings and physical art of different cultures are locked away until it gets its chance to escape through inspirational re inventions of me, my culture, and my views. Art is in everything I cling to as an individual. I see it as my independence. No matter if I’m constrained physically, my mind will never be. One thing for sure, if you can see this with your heart, you will not only feel free but you will always know the Art of

Barber Shop “Chop up”

 

11222698_492171877625604_4489880442864566862_nNothing stands out in any community than the famous Red and White Striped pole. Recurrently associated with a blue stripe at times. This could be found twisting next to a small storefront or other places of operation; signifying a place where one could appropriate a haircut, a shave, possibly a manicure and a bit of masculine bonhomie. A wonderful contribution to any neighborhood and even around the world. Barbers are true comrades. One will marvel at their good-naturedness which sends friendliness amongst the world.

I was curious to know if other barbers in different parts of the country were indistinguishable. Excited about the thought; I disembarked the city of Chicago for a class with Dudley’s school of Cosmetology.FB_IMG_1438308786051FB_IMG_1438308798528 This trip was an Honor for me because Dudley’s Products are like the Mercedes Benz of hair products for African American Hair. This class possessed some of Americas Top Barbers from “Hotlanta” to my Hometown in Highland Park, MI. 11209560_492171967625595_302049933858343301_n 11755147_492171934292265_4101304602645663095_n

Meeting many a barber’s in my day and watching them come and go; there is something about a barber that entices me (no pun intended). These men are all driven by something. Me being me, of course I am going to satisfy my curiosity. In the “CHI” I had the Liberty of conversing with some well re-knowned Young Men that “cut up”.

Sitting face to face with them and straight grilling them, I had questions and they had answers. So those of you that visit the barber shop or are even in thought of becoming a Barber, take notes. Because this stuff you simply won’t find in a text book.

Enchanting Chromaticity

Born 1976 – Torie Jones a native of Jacksonville Florida, grew up loving art. Her passion for art began at a young age. As a child she was surrounded by art and music, along with the beauty of her family’s love of arts and crafting, which kept her interest in fine arts.    She is a motivated mother of three with nine years of experience in the entertainment industry. In various forms IE: management, promotions, and event planning. Now holding title of body artist. Her abstract style of original hand painting on bodies and canvas are straight from her imagination. After many years of drawing Torie moved to Atlanta Ga. and started painting with acrylic paint on canvas. She moved forward, experimenting with abstracts in various mediums. This pushed her to expand her horizons and tap into new areas of painting she had not yet explored. There was an obvious freedom and personal expression with abstraction and it was then that she really began to flourish. She was deeply interested in the effects of color, texture and the emotional response to strong composition and design. By removing the representational and creating something that told a story without an observational subject matter was very exciting. Today, Torie’s work is a bold mix of styles of art ranging from crafting to body art with not just using paint to the body. She brings a subtle and sophisticated feel to her paintings through a unique balance of color, composition and texture.

Artist Statement

“My primary goal when creating my abstracts is to breathe life into what I do. One of my practices is to make sure that I don’t stay locked up in the studio for too long. I get out and explore and try other forms of art for inspiration. This relates to new ideas and the ability to stay excited about what I do every day. As you can tell by my work, I like to create living emotion within my art.

My art is to leave you wanting more so that you may explore your own spirit and to be an inspiration to the next artist. Art can help us grow, heal our hearts, excite our senses and inspire new ideas. It’s one of the most valuable gifts in this world. Thank you for being a part of my journey………”

Most artists use paint to express their artistic talents, color can soften the facial features, warm the skin tones and accentuate a person’s lifestyle and personality.

The laws of color state that out of all the colors in the universe, only three yellow, red and blue (called primary colors) are pure. This means, they cannot be created by the mixing of any other colors. Strangely, these primary colors can be mixed to create other hues. Hey, it’s the law of color and cannot be altered in any way. y76t542 IMG_20130929_190154

Be it hair, nails, make-up etc. Heck even an auto body shop must oblige. With that being said, if I must say myself this takes talent, skill, and pose to articulate. To balance one another without over powering one another becomes a mastered skill by the most streaming artist.

The Beauty industry in yesterday and today’s world has permanently been lucrative and productive. This brings to the discussion I compassed with a local artist out of Jacksonville, Florida. By the name of Torie Jones. She has a talent like I have never imagined. She dominates the law of color in such a way that is amazing. Here is her interview.IMG_0120

A: It is my pleasure Torie to have this session with you and overview artistic skill. I read your Bio, I found it fascinating. I saw your work, I think it’s extraordinary. My theory here is that you are not only artistic, yet brave, creative and bold. So, Torie outside of having an intense background in entertainment, art and music. What exactly prompted you to do this form of art?

T: Well looking back, it just fell into my lap. I was doing face paint with my kids and nephew’s and a friend of mine needed a portfolio for her make up to send to my other friend that was in need of a MUA for a photo shoot. I suggested to be different and give your portfolio some spice by adding face paint on one half and corresponding with make up on the other. We did and it was great. We showed off the work so we can do more for the portfolio. We found people interested but nervous, I mean they (adults) actually asked “would it hurt”? I had to think how I can make this a beautiful thing so I asked a few dancers if I could do a half body paint and take pictures. They agreed and it’s been on ever since.

A: normally, how long does it take you to completely cover an entire individual? I noticed that there is no stone unturned so- to- speak. They are completely covered and colorful.

T: When I first started I use to draw it out so that took a good hour, then painting was two hours. I started watching the Pro’s tutorials on the internet and found some techniques I learned to use just the paint brush and found my confidence. Needless to say my speed took off for a full body paint a little over an hour if I don’t go hard on details. I do get carried away with detailing.

A: Body art dates back over 5000 yrs ago. Many tribes and many cultures utilize body art as a way to express their civilization. I mean, I cannot tell you how many different cultures from ancient Egypt to Prisoners on the yard express themselves in this manner. I myself became fascinated by the Cherokee traditions once I became well informed of my ancestors and saw pictures of my Cherokee fifth generation Grandmother and her Husband. This prompted me to want to learn more about them. The Colors, the pattern, the Pow Wows were stimulating to me. What motivates you to do this? And when & where did you begin?

T: I have always been driven by culture of many, and myself having evident Seminole and other races running through my blood has me always in detective mode. Mostly health and art. I believe that’s why I am drawn to certain things in my life. Most of all I was raised with music of all types and with that helped my drive and passion for more than one art in my soul. Everything I do has passion and loyalty in it. So whether it’s poetry, writing, music, crafting, décor, painting, event planning, or whatever I will try next, I am dedicating my all to see the ending results.

Being a part of a family that was in the army, I was exposed to the art in all of the places traveled. They would bring back art and decor that would have me wanting to duplicate in a drawing. On both sides of my family I had a form of art. I’m sure this is why my art comes out more abstract because of keeping those images in my head for so long. So I would have to say it started for me as a little girl from the age of five. Growing up surrounded by my creative artsy family

A: Now, I understand that the Human body can be interesting and yet complicated. You are enhancing an already provocative configuration here. Have you or do you sometimes get uncomfortable painting these beautiful women? I mean, I imagine this becoming second nature to you after a while, is that correct?

T: Alicia, it’s funny that you ask. My first fully nude model was someone I grew up with that is considered family and the photographer was someone I had a huge crush on. So can we say awkward for the first twenty minutes of painting? I mean this model has an outstanding body ..this was the only way I’d want to see her naked and this photographer has to look at her and my mind is going wild, like is this really happening? But I picked these people because she has always been artsy and open about her art. The photographer and I have always wanted to work together. The Opportunity was there so once my design got in my head … let’s just say the rest is history in the making!

A: What is the proper term to use when verbalizing what you do? Body Painting, Temporary tattooing, tell me what to call this?

T: Body art, Body painting, and temporary tattooing are all great words to describe this because some people identify it differently. Most of the time I have to tell them what I am using so they don’t get it mixed up with real tattooing. Reassuring them that this washes off with soap! Lol

A: Have you ever incorporated men in your work?

T: Yes indeed Alicia

A: (Smiling) Are they Nude?

T: Oh yes… A few have, but in my town I don’t get many fully nude like I’d like to lol. It’s challenging for me here in my hometown. It is so different keeping my designs manly because I have so many female designs and most of my work is freestyle and all my work is free handed, so what comes out … comes out. I see my work as sexy and seductive. So my preference is Adult body art.I usually can connect with my model and the design that is freestyle usually seems custom made to fit their personality, nothing planned that way.. it just comes out as synergy.

A: Again the first thought that came across my mind was BOLDNESS. It takes heart and creativity not to mention patience and a steady hand lol to master this. I commend you for your endeavor and I thank you for sharing your colorful world with Enticing Resultz Magazine. Inform our faithful readers how they may keep track of you. ERMAG is huge on networking and we strongly believe in gravitating one another. So do tell, which social media and websites can we find you Torie? The social sites are

Say What You Want to…..I’m Beautiful

 

Say what you want to, but I’m a girl with class, a little pizzazz. I’m a bounty of beauty, never once settling for less. I’m a woman with edge…….

Beauty was once something that I thought could only be attained with some rouge, eye shadow, and lipstick. What I can tell you is that beauty is more than skin deep. More than hair. Life can be difficult, but only when the cards that you are dealt are not played with stealth and delight. Enjoy the process, ride the wave.

I love the boldness of the young women, the fire and passion. Daring to be different, the colors, the styles. If there is one thing that I would like to see, balance. Balance is something that requires a connection. Alignment, an evenness, proportion. Not the balancing of beauty and brains. Balance of responsibility and power. Power of worth. The power of a beautiful intelligent woman. The strength of a woman that knows her worth without overbearing cynicism of independence. The beauty in knowing that interdependence is something that is needed, yearned for, a must. It’s the silent cry that men want, our children need, and the world is missing. It’s ok to be “every woman”, just don’t forget your purpose. The mental anguish and inner demons, the threshold that harbors the thoughts of the past, may be responsible for most lacking the intimacy and compassion for oneself, let alone anyone else. Say what you want to, but, it is the underlying current of hatred that is leading our nations. The desire to be perfect has become synonymous with power. The desire to be the best has been confused with being the best “you” that you can be. It’s the driving force that causes many to work endlessly to provide a materialistic future for generations, but forfeit the ability to nurture your own children. “That has what to do with beauty?”, you might ask. It has everything to do with it. In my opinion Too much of anything, excess, abundance is not always good. Too much of a good thing can cause a disconcerting effect, such as an overabundance of bad can cause disaster. Hence the term “too good to be true,”

Beauty by definition:

1: the quality or aggregate of qualities in a person or thing that gives pleasure to the senses or pleasurably exalts the mind or spirit :  loveliness……..

www.merriam-webster.com

 

Beauty by definition:

Beauty is a thing seldom seen. It is held by all within the soul it lies, waiting to come out to the surface, but it can only be found if someone is sharing your soul with you. Beauty is suppressed by the evils of the world. Only love can bring beauty out. Once seen, beauty never hides again. Not even hatred can deny beauty of it’s true design. Beauty, although possessed by all by few and fewer yet will ever see one of the most beautiful sights – the beauty held by you.

-Urban Dictionary

Say what you want to….I’m beautiful…..

Marquetta part 2

My Story: How I Survived

MarquettaMay 21, 2012 was the day that I received the most devastating news of my life. Out of the three breast biopsies performed one came back positive for breast cancer. Denial set in, I kept thinking this could not possibly be true. “I’m a child of God and something like this could not possibly happen to me” is what I kept thinking. No one in my family had ever been diagnosed with cancer, I am the first of nine siblings. Not even my parents or grandparents ever faced this disease. Cancer does not discriminate. My diagnosis came at the age 54 and I was employed as a school bus driver for FWISD.  I had been witness to several coworkers suffering with the same diagnoses not even realizing I would have to do some of the same things they were doing including losing my hair. Thank God for my pastor, my children, and my church family because without their support and prayers this journey would have had a very different outcome. One of the hardest things I had to do was tell my daughters because this disease would not only impact my life but theirs also. I love them so much, My daughters suggested I get a second opinion and paid for me to go to a Holistic Doctor. Needless to say when the Dr showed me the cancer cells that was in just one drop of blood under a microscope, my very own prayer partner and sister in Christ Debrah witnessed it as well, and at that moment I felt closer to death than I had ever been in my whole life. So it was established that the cancer was real and that I was in a battle for not just my natural life but my spiritual life as well. A true test of faith. Through faith, hope, and trust in Almighty God and the words of wisdom spoken to me by a great and wise woman of God Pastor Jackson I am still here. I survived surgery, chemo, radiation and hormone therapy. To God be the Glory.

Cancer Didn’t Survive, but I Did!

My name is Sierra and I’m 28 years old. I’m married to my best friend and one of my many supporters. I have two handsome boys. I would like to share my tragedy, testimony, and my triumph.

On August 20, 2013 I was diagnosed with a rare breast tumor that came back as malignant it’s called Phyllodes tumor. It’s rare because it cannot be treated with chemotherapy nor radiation, it is a tumor that must continuously be cut out leaving you victim to constant surgery because did I mention, it grows rapidly? Even if cut with a larger margin of healthy breast tissue/fat. The day that I had my first surgery was on August 20th, however two weeks post-op; still with stitches in place. My breast specialist discovered it had grown back again in just two weeks, my doctor performed emergency surgery and suggested in the meantime to do BRCA1 test. This is a genetic mutation test for breast cancer and ovarian cancer. I went along with my specialist’s suggestion only to get the most unfortunate news. I was positive for the gene not only that, I was in the top 50th percentile. I was really discouraged at this point but I knew God had this all under control at least in that moment. At this point, due to my second emergency operation I was hoping and praying for the best. Thinking the worst was over because that had taken a lot of surrounding tissue out of my left breast plus with test results I was recommended to just come every 3 months for MRI, mammogram, and ultrasound. However, I followed everything they told me and showed up to every appointment, but I just kept getting negative reports.

On one particular visit my doctor nonchalantly asked “how would you feel if you had to get a mastectomy?” I could hardly swallow. I was like a deer caught in headlights. I was so puzzled, she then stated “you don’t have to answer me now but keep it in the back of your mind because things just aren’t looking good. Every time you come you never get any good news. ” I told her I wouldn’t need it, God had healed me and she just smiled. Some 6 months had gone by at this point and I was back at the doctor with guess what? A new lump in my right breast and also the one in the left breast had returned. The tears begin to roll down my face and my faith had been extremely shaken and I thought God was punishing me. My doctor sent me over to the radiologist to get what’s called a core needle biopsy were they go in and take tissue sample to check for cancerous cells. Well my report had come back and they couldn’t really tell what was in my body because some of the tissue was funny colored and textured weirdly. It was something they had never dealt with before. I was told that I needed to meet her, my radiologist and their nurses to figure out our next move. I knew it wasn’t good then….here we are July 2014 and I’m still fighting this monster. I arrived to the office on July 1st and was directed to an office that kind of reminded me of a meeting room and not the usual check up room. As everyone greeted me she had a file of my diagnosis, test results, and etc from caring for me for almost a year. As everyone was staring at me with a great deal of despair in their eyes, I remember her explaining everything!!! She said “SIERRA I’M SORRY HONEY BUT WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO PERFORM A BILATERAL DOUBLE MASTECTOMY …. WE FEEL THIS WOULD BE YOUR BEST AND SAFEST SOLUTION BECAUSE THE NEXT 5 years aren’t looking so well for you based off of all of your results.” Dazed and confused, I could not swallow again. I stated, ok! Well how soon would I have to do this? She said “the next 2 weeks because we can’t leave those tumors in there.” During the next 2 weeks, my life would change forever. My surgery was scheduled for July 16th at 6:00 a.m. It would be a 6 hour procedure, but I made it through and here’s where God began to speak to me. My first week was so depressing and I was so angry with God. I questioned him over and over. I cried until my eyes were swollen shut because I couldn’t believe that the God I served and loved would allow this. But He really does love me because after they removed my breasts they sent them down to pathology for testing, when the report came back I had 6 different types of tumors in my breasts that they couldn’t see due to my breasts being dense because I am so young. That is when I began to experience God in a supernatural way, I could hear Him speak loud and clearly he said “I love you but I wanted to show you everything isn’t what it looks like and I’m operating on you beneath the surface.” I thought really Lord beneath the surface huh? Well He actually spoke so clearly I was literally abled to write it on paper, which I turned into a poem, something I had never done before. See even though He took the very thing that I needed as a woman to nurture her baby, God was showing me I will take and I have already wore your disease. I want you to rest in my bosom (the bosom of Jesus) and I will nurture you back to health spiritually. So even though my body was physically experiencing this process God was spiritually operating on me as well. In this time I have discovered so much about myself as a child of God. My faith was enlarged because of this journey. I couldn’t pay or buy my way out, or even call my parents to fix it. He literally had me in a position to only trust in Him. I was forced to listen to Him because I couldn’t move. He taught me how to find value in small things, love what’s misunderstood, and accept the rejected as well as, not to be surprised by who and what he chooses to use to bless me. I am currently under reconstruction from the inside out but through it all I’ve learned to trust in Jesus and depend on him! My praise and worship is sincere because this entire time I’ve been off work but God always makes a way for every bill to get paid. Imagine! Not working for a year.

If I could give any advice to anybody it would be: always perform self breast exams at home before your monthly cycle and after. Always keep up with mammograms. MRI’s and ultrasounds always follow up. Last and certainly not least TRUST IN THE LORD with all your heart because His ways are not our ways and if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans because he already worked it out. Thank you for reading this I hope it blessed someone, because my journey has surely been a blessing to me and those around me. Isaiah 53:5

Makeup is for Every Woman/ Post Halloween Glam

Every woman wants to feel and look her best, makeup helps to do that. Makeup is not to lie, it’s not some sham to trick men. It doesn’t do anything but enhance the features that a woman already possesses. Makeup helps to cover birth marks or skin defects that would bring unwarranted attention. Makeup helps women feel their best. People all have things they do; one doesn’t stop buying perfume or cologne. Even though they will smell fine with dove soap. But, you buy the smell goods anyway. Men get haircuts and line ups at the barbershops to look more polished. Women wash, rinse, and wear makeup. And yet women receive much criticism for wearing makeup. Whether or not she is what one considers a natural beauty, shouldn’t matter if she wants to wear makeup. If she wants to, then she should do it without being those out having her beauty discredited for it. Even if you are a woman that prefers no makeup, there is no harm in knowing how to wear it on your face, for your features. Makeup is just another accessory that can be used for fun. It is not always about an ego boost or a self esteem cover up.

And now things have changed, there are new techniques and different products out there. All of which may be a better fit for one woman’s skin than another. The only way to discover what’s best for you is to get out there and find out. Don’t feel ashamed for being older and not knowing what will work best for you. There are countless palettes for the eyes and lips, which one may not have known compliments her more. So, no matter the age, go and make the appointment at Sephora, Mac, Chanel, Bobbi Brown, or Nars, or any professional beauty consultant, wherever your heart is content. Let that professional show you the “you” that’s there under the surface. Let that professional put a little extra pep in that step of yours. You won’t be sorry, and you will still be you.

Make that appointment and keep it!

 

Happy Hallows Glam

Everyone assumes Halloween is the holiday solely for children. But, how’s that phrase go…? “There’s a little bit of child in all of us.” Therefore, Halloween is a holiday for us all. It’s the perfect day to break out and do something for the pure fun of it. Dad’s if you want to be that hero in your children’s eyes, throw on the cape. Mom’s if you like a “material girl, in a material world”, be Madonna for the day. Maybe become one of the undead, perhaps a woodland fairy, or a classic horror movie star. If ever there was a time for man to want to moonwalk wearing a shiny red leather jacket, Halloween is that time. The list goes on and on, the possibility’s only a Google search away.

Wonderful things about today’s technology are all the outlets provided to show vast do-it-yourself ideas on costumes and makeup looks. Whoever would have thought Frankenstein could be glamorous. With YouTube videos at your fingertips it’s only a short tutorial away from bringing some glam power to a classic costume icon such as Frankenstein. Fake blood and flesh application sets at the nearest Spirit Halloween stores have brought an all new “real” to the creativity of zombies.

So, ladies don’t stress, there are countless ways to be both pretty and gruesome all at the same time. Instead of that everyday brown or grey smoky eye, try green for Poison Ivy or Purple for that fairy. Contour that face with grey and highlight with white to get that pale vampire look. The point or rather the end goal is to have fun with your look and really do something outlandish. Halloween is the perfect Holiday to get away with it. Take advantage of the YouTube tutorials and Pinterest ideas out there to help find out what creature lives inside of you!

Happy Hallows Eve!

Product Review: “Jeannie In a Bottle”

Shanell Monique Logo

I had the priviledge to interview a very business savvy woman by the name of Melva Williams a while back. She puts the “Entre” in Entrepreneur. She sent me some hair products to use from her product line “Jeannie in A Bottle” (which consists of treatment, moisturizer, and gel), in my salon. I must say, after using the products, I did feel a difference in my clients’ hair. The moisture rich products helped to restore the luster and shine as well as the manageability in everyday styling. I have included some informational videos explaining the use of the products.

Interview: “Premiere Barber” That Has The “Magic Touch”

 

8227000_orig“This life story began in a small desolate town of Indianapolis, Indiana and involves a boy who was born into a bloodline of artistic visionaries. Sternly mannered mother served as a waitress in various venues to provide a financial consistency to accommodate her family’s well being stirred a disturbed state of tenacity within Johnn. He dreamt of a world bigger than his grim and bleak environmental circumstances. So by the age of 10 he was overthrown by his entrepreneur spirit and began hustling by any means necessary from cutting grass to shoveling snow and even starting a paper route on his bicycle.

At the vulnerable age of 18 Belt branched out from under a bitter sweet partnership and opened Magic Touch, his first barber shop. From its ground breaking moment, Magic Touch Barber Shop has been a thriving monument in its community since 1996. Despite the odds it was no coincidence he would evolve into his destiny as a master of sought after enterprising styles and precision. Belt also proclaims the undisputed title of “The World’s Fastest Fade” in the hair industry. With over a decade of artistic cutting techniques and a host of celebrity clients to proclaim like Jagged Edge, Otis Nixon, Sir Charles, Mario Winans and Ray Bucannon to name a few; it was only a matter of time before Belt would cast his spell upon the world of beauty and enter the beauty and health realm with his own hair and skin care product line rightfully branded Magic Touch and emerge as the first African American male to brand The Premiere® Clipper Company.

Belt had a vision of creating a line that would be designed and formulated for barbers and stylists who wanted to provide a product of elegance to their clients without the bother of lofty cost. With a strapping professional background and a heart of passion for his expertise, he began to set out on his branding journey in 2008 and has grown to immense heights ever since. Though it hasn’t been easy, a combination of unadulterated genius and indescribable talents has brought Belt to the vanguard of history itself.

Although Johnn has had his own struggles, he has never forgotten those whom are less fortunate than himself. He deals with an extensive array of charities such as Hosea Williams Feed the Hungry, Second Blessings, his personal philanthropy endeavors Barbers and Stylist World Series and The Touch Foundation, and simply taking time out of his demanding schedule to mentor to our youth about positive options and life choices. Johnn’s shining star shows no signs of deeming as he continues to reach for infinite elevations in the beauty, health and mainstream media industry………..”

Johnn Belt is a man of many talents. Besides being CEO and Founder of his Premiere Clipper Company and Magic Touch Hair Group; as well as affiliate of many different charities and organizations,  Johnn is an innovator. Being a man of many talents has allowed him to target and tackle most issues coming out of Hair and Barber Industry. His aim was to be the best man that he could possibly be. Johnn’s initiative and go- getter attitude makes him unstoppable. Where most people would feel overwhelmed, his tenacity challenges him to new heights.

When focusing on one entity, “Magic Touch” Hair Care, of which a product line does stem from. Magic Touch product Line was developed to put professional barbering and styling products on the market, especially petroleum and water based products to help lubricate and hydrate the skin and scalp. These products were much needed for barbers and stylists as well as clients. Mainly targeting the African American Community. The versatility in these products speak for themselves. Barbers love the H2O Cream because of its conditioning, and luxurious shine such as the liquid finish conditioning sprays for the hairline and beard. The shaving products like the shaving gel with aloe and the aftershave lotion are also a hit. Stylists love the shampoos and conditioners, followed by the finishing spritz to complete that luscious look. Average retail price of products range from $6-$8 for barbers, and $8-$10 for stylists to those retailing to clients. If you are a barber or stylist seeking to wholesale or become a distributor, there is a $500 minimum and it’s based on a tier system.8448414_orig 2750283_orig 8612050_orig

A product line is great, but when there is hardware to back it up to complete a system of productivity, the resilience is even greater. “Premiere Clipper” Line is a company founded by Johnn Belt due to the fact that there was no African American clipper company to date. Premiere Clippers deal with problems faced by other clipper lines, such as issues with heat, speed and weight. Most of these issues you will feel with prolonged or extensive use of a clipper, and Premiere Clipper Company eases those problems for the user. For now these clippers are retailed either through the app/website, www.magictouchhairgroup.com. Wholesale will soon be available to barber schools, stores, etc. Premiere Clipper Company experiences more sales in clippers from the Spanish and African American Barbers because they are the ones that are barbering primarily in the demographic regions that Premiere Clippers are marketed. Right now the southeast and some Midwest regions are familiar with this product brand, soon it will be sweeping the nation and overseas as well as Canadian markets. Strategic planning and marketing is what Johnn Belt has been working on to extend both Magic Touch Hair Care Line and Premiere Clipper Line. He uses all means to promote and advertise his products, such as multimedia and regular platforms during educational forums, of which both lines are used interchangeably..facebook_1412749125892

We know that Johnn Belt is multi-talented as a barber and business mogul, but nothing brings him joy like knowing he had the power to transform someone’s look, by helping clients achieve their optimal look. In addition to the other charities named above, Johnn contributes to “Toys for Tots”, but in the next couple of years Premiere Clippers will be sponsoring their own community events for the public. Johnn also feels that the most important aspect of being a barber or entrepreneur for that matter, is to simply give back. There is no greater accomplishment like being abled to provide a space for others to give back as well. Johnn prides himself on having integrity, with his experience he has acquired wisdom. Having humility and changing lives and being abled to give back to those less fortunate is what makes a true entrepreneur.
