Braiding hair ever since she’s known herself, Jalicia Benjamin, recalls the days in her childhood when her mom would ask her to cut the braid or prepare the hair. “That’s all I’ve known,” she said, finding it difficult to remember the exact age when she started. Now an entrepreneur, the twenty five year old works in the capital on Cardin Avenue in Basseterre and often shares her beloved hairstyles with her clients and followers.
At the age of fifteen, she began working for herself, and though her plaits then were not perfect, this did not stop her from making a place for herself. She started off by
charging $30 – 50 for a braid style and as she better, her prices went up. As for being an entrepreneur she says, “Nothing much to do in life when you’re independent but to better yourself. Put the money to use and live comfortable.”
Jalicia’s styles have been shared and copied millions of times all over the world via social media. She is the most in demand braidstylist in the Caribbean and arguably the best braidstylist in the world.
