More Bio In 2002 she found her salon home with
the Salon Lotus team. Anitra says, "Each year I find something new
about creating fresh hairstyles that makes me excited to be in this
industry." Anitra has had many years of extensive training in the
industry and her continuing education has allowed her to travel all
over the country. Anitra was chosen by Salon Lotus and Goldwell Hair
Color Systems to become a Salon Ambassador so that other designers
have the opportunity to learn from her overabundance of knowledge
with haircolor. Salon Lotus has also chosen Anitra to team with
Co-Owner Tonya Samples Kvapil to lead the Lotus Apprenticeship
program. Tonya says,” I knew Anitra was the perfect instructer for
our apprentice program. We are blessed to have an entire team of
designers but Anitra truly understands the geometry of technical
haircutting. This profound knowledge paired with her artistic eye
makes her an absolute genius at what she does!” Anitra’s knowledge
of and experience with Aveda, TIGI, Brocato International, Balmain
Hair Extensions, Sunpure KeratinTreatments and Mizani Retexturing
Relaxers allows her to serve her multi-ethnic clientele well. Anitra
enjoys every part of her job, but color seems to be her forte.
Anitra also says, "I love to transform people, to make them feel
great!!! Being a day maker is awesome!! Color is one of the best
ways to drastically change a look, from just adding a few highlights
to something completely new; it is truly 'instant gratification'!
The feeling of satisfaction I receive when my client says, 'I love
my hair!', makes each day worth it! I feel that excellent customer
service and fulfilling my client's expectations are priceless."
Every day Anitra comes to work with the aim to overwhelm each client
so that they know that with the combination of expertise and
professionalism they will get a more unbelievable hair experience
then they have ever had in a salon before!
Anitra happily resides in West Atlanta with her husband Trevis. She
loves Atlanta, but N’awlins will always be in her blood!
