Meet Simone


(Lead Loctician & Braid Artist)


I founded Knotty Xpressions in 2014 in an effort to help others become free in their natural hair and loc journey! I wanted others to feel the freedom that I felt when I finally released myself of the discriminatory standards of beauty that society deemed acceptable.

With over 8 years of experience in natural hair, loc'ing, and braiding, I've had the joy of exploring my intense passion for the art! It's more than just hair to me, it's your crown. It's the way you Xpress yourself, it evokes Self Love. 

I lead a team of beautiful professionals who have a strong desire to nurture your hair as though it were their own. Our goal is to help you beautifully express yourself through your hair alone. If we have done that, then we have mastered our art!


Meet Jyresha
