Courtney has spent the last 5 years developing her skillset as a powerful Relationship Coach to the community both local and abroad through her growing online presence.  She has authored a 21 day interactive prayer journal, 21 Days of Real, Raw, Relevant Prayer.  She coaches women and men to discover and create the life they want!  As a relationship coach, Courtney supports you in uncovering what you really want in your relationships while guiding you as you create relevant steps to get you the results you desire in your relationships, your purpose, and ultimately your calling in life. 

She bleeds coffee and pours her heart and passion into making the best cup of coffee for each person who walks in the door. Courtney is a passionate teacher who connects her knowledge of history and experience with biblical principles and relates it in understandable and applicable ways. When she’s not creating new concepts, you can catch her training, writing, playing, cooking for the family or creating new coffee profiles for the future.



Amber Smith is a Lafayette native. She graduated from Lafayette High School and attended Cosmetology Training Center from 2019-2020. She then apprenticed under Jamie for an entire year. Amber became Natural Beaded Rows extension certified in May of 2021. Since her certification, she has worked diligently to excel at her craft! 

Amber has a passion of helping women discover their true beauty inside and out. 

In her free time, Amber is a wife and mother of two! She is excited to meet you and see the transformation of you becoming the BEST version of yourself!



April is a Jesus girl, wife of 17 years, and for the majority of those years, was a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom of 3. She'd always wanted to be a cosmetologist but spent years allowing the enemy to convince her she wasn't good enough, pretty enough, or talented enough. 

After years of inner work and healing, she realized it was about so much more than "just hair," and God had truly placed this desire in her heart to help women see themselves as He sees them. She believes women spend so much time pouring themselves into others - their spouses, children, communities, churches, family, and friends and is honored to have the opportunity to use her God given gifts and talents to pour into them. 

Her favorite movie is Steel Magnolias. Favorite book is Chasing God by Angie Smith. Favorite season is summer. Favorite flowers are wild. Favorite activity is anything outdoors - as long as she's allowed to be barefoot and the temp is above 80°. 

Her passion is extensions, and she cannot wait to share the magic of NBR with you!



Layla is a licensed cosmetologist from Erath, Louisiana.  She graduated from Cosmetology Training Center in 2021 and has been working behind the chair since.  Just attaining her NBR certification, she plans to apprentice Jamie in hopes to help spread the confidence that extensions provide.

She is a lover of coffee, the color pink, and all things beauty. Her favorite tv show is “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” and her favorite movie is “I Feel Pretty”.  Her favorite music artist is Taylor Swift. In her free time, you can find her with her friends, shopping, or spending time with her cat, Flower. With her love for the beauty industry, Layla cannot wait to grow as an NBR artist with you, while helping you find your true beauty!




Amazing experience! Jamie and her crew are top notch. Wonderful conversation, delicious lunch, perfect espresso, and lustrous, long hair like I’ve never had before. Jamie is a perfectionist and won’t let you leave that chair until you look your absolute best!

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Jamie and her staff. They’re kind, professional, and caring people. Your satisfaction is their number one priority. Jamie was highly recommended by several of my friends! Well let me just tell you I have absolutely no regrets except I wish I had gotten my extensions sooner!!

Jamie is a wonderful person who touches more hearts than hair.
