“I will say that being a creative stylist is something that runs through you personally. Being able to create something dynamic that’s not only pleasing to the eye but also very distinct is a great talent, especially as a male hairstylist in the women’s sector. “, says Adelaja.
My plans for the future
Talking about his plans for the comingAdelaja said he wanted to be able to turn people into kings and queens.
In his words:
“In the future, I want to create an avenue where different genders can enter the saloon or the store even if they are not beautiful and be able to turn them into elegant queens or kings because I think all genders are beautiful in their own way.
“Transforming them includes their massage of the face, hair, skin, body and whatever they want and if possible create an avenue where they also have a fabric already made for them (like a line of fabric) whether it is to be sewn or already made.”
