"I received my Cosmetology License at Richard & Joseph Cosmetology School, and received my Instructor License at Barrow Beauty School.
Growing up I always practiced hair on all of my sisters and brothers. I said to God, one day I would love to have my own hair salon.
My dream came true on January 19, 2015. I am the proud owner of Lady D Hair Salon & Spa, located at 210 Shelley Dr. Tyler, TX, 76701. We are a full service salon. We do all types of hair, no matter the color of your skin, your gender or age.
I was born in San Augustine Texas, I am the 7th of 12 children. I graduated High School in May 1979. In January 1980 I moved to Tyler, TX. My husband, Kerry Blakemore and I have been married for seven years. I am a member of the True Vine Baptist Church of Tyler. I work faithfully every Sunday with the ushers of our church."
Hi. I’m best known as Gus. I attended Barrow’s Beauty School and finished at Star College of Cosmetology where I later became an instructor and taught for a while. I worked for Regis QO for six years and for JCPenny Salon for 17 years. My color experience starts many years ago at Renfro’s Color Academy in Dallas, TX amongst many other hair shows, seminars and technical on hand shows. My drive is evident in my craft, regardless of the type of service or demographics.
