Hello, my name is Titilola Gbenjo, I am the owner and founder of TAI-LO
I am a licensed Master cosmetologist, Certified Makeup Artist and Beauty Therapist.
From a very young age or as long as I can remember I have loved makeup and hair, I used to sneak into my mother’s room to apply her lipstick. I always knew I would end up in this industry.
Getting an education was the most important thing in our household (Nigerian). After high school, I went to college and got a bachelors in Economics and then to England and got a masters in Business Information Systems. Throughout my programs I always did some type of makeup for family and friends, the more i did makeup, the more my passion for it grew.
I decided to take it more seriously in 2008, I found the perfect school in London while I was doing my masters.
I went for a diploma in Makeup Artistry and Beauty Therapy at the London School of Beauty and Makeup.
After all my education, I opened up a makeup and hair studio plus spa in Nigeria and I also branched into working on local movies and TV shows.
I moved to Atlanta in 2012 and I decided to perfect my hair skills at Paul Mitchel the school Atlanta and got a Master Cosmetology. Paul Mitchell opened a lot of new doors for me, while i was in school i got to intern on Fast and Furious 7 and i started working with the TV station Atlanta CW, I currently work on 5 Shows including Focus Atlanta and Rise up weekly for the Falcons
I also developed a lot of interest in crochet braids, that led to creating my signature style that I am most known for and am very proud of. I also do Cuts and Color and create Customized wigs.
I have a passion for everything beauty, so whether it be hair or makeup, my mission is to have you looking and feeling your best when you leave my chair.
