About the Owner: Zakiya, a native from Los Angeles California came to Baltimore in 2000 to attend Morgan State University as a student athlete. As a little girl she always had a passion for hair styling. She began by creating different hair styles for her dolls, relatives, and friends and whenever the opportunity presented itself. As a teenager she worked in salons for no pay just for the love of hair! At the age of 21, Zakiya was certified as a freelance makeup artist working fashion shows, multiple weddings and teaching make up application in the meantime, but hair was still her passion. In 2001, Zakiya went natural by doing the big chop! At that point, doors opened as she learned the beauty of natural hair. Despite being raised in California where the societal messages conveyed that being natural was neither beautiful nor accepted Zakiya it made it her goal to promote natural beauty and change the world one person at a time. Zakiya worked at Natural Images hair studio for six years and The Sanctuary for a year before she opened up her basement for business in 2009. The Hair Temple is a store front business at 7000 Belair Rd Baltimore MD, with limitless possibilities.
