Kendalia is the original owner and operator of Miracles Hair Studio. She has been in the hair industry for over thirty years. Her career began in Texas where she was born and raised. She continued her work in North Carolina and then in Manhattan where she worked at the M-salon on the upper west side for six years. Finally, she settled in Syracuse, N.Y., where she had an opportunity to open her own hair studio in Fayetteville that fit her vision of what an upscale, sophisticated salon experience should be: welcoming, intimate, professional and a place that caters to more than just hair. In 2010, the studio relocated and expanded its services all while maintaining its original mission and vision. Regarding the evolution of her business and her dream, Kendalia says that, "Somehow, it all seems like a miracle. I wanted to work in a place that felt like home. I think I've achieved that with Miracles, and I hope you feel at home here too."
