Shamika has had a fascination and passion for hair since the mere age of three ─ when she learned how to do her first braid. Throughout her childhood, she would improve upon her braiding skills by practicing on her cousins and neighborhood children. Shortly after high school, she enrolled in cosmetology school and received her license as a cosmetologist in 2006.
Desiring to share and teach her skill set to aspiring hair stylists, Shamika became a Senior Cosmetologist in 2013. There’s an adage that says, “If one can find something they love – then they should do it.” Shamika lives by that adage each and every day and has often said, "If I could do hair for free, I would!!! I love it that much."
She prides herself in making women look and more importantly, feel beautiful. Shamika specializes in natural hair, cutting, coloring, weave extensions and creates custom wigs. Healthy hair is her main priority which is why 99% of her clients are natural (zero relaxers). Her love for the industry drives her to continue educating herself to stay abreast of current trends, new developments, and technology.
Shamika is founder and creator of TerryGregorik Wig Collection, an exclusive line of fully customized wig units that are virtually undetectable.
The beauty and lifestyle work of Shamika has been featured in publications such as The Washingtonian, Washington Bride and Groom Magazine, Black Bride, Upscale Magazine, Today's Black Woman, and Destination Weddings Magazine just to name a few.
Her mission is to enhance the natural beauty of her clientele and staying on the cutting-edge of the hair care and beauty industries. Continuing to take her skillset to the next level by perfecting her craft is Shamika’s driving force.
