Damali Fils knew from the age of 14 that her passion was to be a hair stylist. Her motto is “you never know where you’re going, until you understand where you come from”. She comes from a small town where she was raised by a hard working single mother. Growing up Damali’s passion for hair showed in her neighborhood as she styled family, friends and even her teachers’ hair. Although her first instinct was to pursue hair school following high school, her father convinced her to pursue her college degree.

 

After pursuing and earning a degree in Business Management at The University of South Florida, she pursued her true passion of styling hair at Paul Mitchell the School. After three years of exploring salons and attempting to find the right fit, Damali decided to open her very own salon. In October 2014 Damali opened her first salon, The Extension Suite, an upscale salon that specialized in hair extensions and custom made wigs.

 

With several years in the beauty industry, Damali has discovered that there are plenty of great hair stylist but that understand how to run a beauty business. As a result, Damali has decided to assist hair stylist in living their best lives both professionally and personally, with her new venture "Stylists in Business. This venture will provide business tools and coaching to hair stylists. Damali currently lives in Sarasota, FL with her loving husband Christopher Fils.
