I’m Tamekia

Unity Salon was founded by Tamekia Okagu, who has been a licensed hair stylist for over 25 years. Tamekia has a passion for mentoring others, which led her to an educator position at one of the most prestigious schools in Scottsdale, AZ (Penrose Academy). Although Tamekia is a licensed educator, she still pursues continuing education classes around the U.S.


What Unity Salon Offers

Innovative Hair Extensions

Tamekia has been doing hair extensions for 20+ years.  Unity Salon can utilize extensions to add volume, texture, or dimension to your hair to create your desired transformation.  Tamekia is familiar with most techniques, including hand-tied wefts, tape-ins, sew-ins, and cylinders. During a consultation, we will find the right combination of techniques for you.  Tamekia has also joined the team of HaloPro as an educator.
