Interview With Hair Care Mogul, Yalmikia Edmonds
Yalmikia Edmonds stands as a beacon of inspiration. From her dedicated role as a mother to her venture as the owner and creator of Levonye Professionals, Yalmikia’s journey is a testament to her commitment to empowering women and restoring their confidence through hair.
Her journey as a hair restoration specialist began when she started doing hair in her community as a teenager. When Yalmikia graduated from high school, she then went to Cosmetology school in 2004. After graduating from Cosmetology school, she went and worked for a popular hair cutting company, that’s where Yalmikia learned more hands on skills.
After working there for four years, she decided to take a leap of faith and operate her own salon. Yalmikia opened up her salon at the age of 25.
As time went on, she continued her education in the beauty industry. This is where Yalmikia became a Certified Hairloss Practitioner.
Yalmikia then went back to school at USTI institute and studied Hair loss. Now she’s able to see clients with hair loss conditions and scalp issues. She shared with us that she’s deeply grateful to be the solution and to have the opportunities to serve women who have unique contrast with their hair.

Yalmikia: Our product line is one that is unique. We offer a variety of products, from medical wigs, to traditional wigs, and hair restoration beauty products. Although our hair restoration products are created to help restore your hair for women who have thinning hair and alopecia, they can also be used for women who want to maintain and keep their existing hair. I wanted to cover all corners. When our customers/clients choose Levonye Professionals we want to make sure that they don’t exit without learning and gaining the resources and knowledge about hair care that they were looking for.

What makes your business and approach to hair care unique?

Education is key so we don’t just provide services and products, we also educate. We provide services that are changing women’s lives, families and communities.
Who is your business role model? Why?
Yalmikia: Me, Because I can’t understand another role model’s pitfalls, hurtles or shortcomings. But I can understand my own shortcomings, pitfalls and my own hurdles.
