Syreeta Scott, the Philadelphia native and owner of Duafe Hair Salon in Philadelphia, PA, has coiffed the hair of celebrities like Janet Jackson, Jill Scott, director Ava DuVernay, The Roots’ Questlove and many more. Syreeta has also created styles featured in Vogue, O magazine, Essence, Philadelphia Magazine, Rolling Stone and more since 2001. Syreeta approaches each client from the heart, caring not only for their hair but their overall well-being. Centered in self-acceptance and self-love, she makes a point of helping them understand their natural hair care is an extension of living an authentic life.



On this episode of the Support is Sexy podcast, Syreeta talks openly about the importance of wrapping her business around the idea of addressing her trauma and how our hair trauma affects us, how she helps her clients feel confident through their self expression and how reinvention and a willingness to grow helped her sustain her business for 20 years and counting.
