Zuri grew up locally and attended Paul Mitchel The School Raleigh. She graduated in 2012 and moved to Atlanta where she became a cutting specialist and worked as an Assistant Art Director, an educator, and did editorial work. Her work has been published in the Fall issues of Vulkan Magazine and Elements Magazine in 2016. From a young age, she has had a love for the fashion and beauty industry. Her first memory of cutting hair started in middle school with a pair of 'dull' kitchen scissors. She was THE go-to fashionista for hair advice for her friends, and that hasn't changed!
