Who is TheHaiRazor?

Ayana Abakah, also known as TheHaiRazor, is a licensed cosmetologist and beauty lover, located in Atlanta, Ga. Her love of”everything” beauty stems from childhood, when she would chop off her Barbie’s hair into the “funky” styles she saw on TV. At the age of 14, Ayana began working at one of Atlanta’s hottest salons as a shampoo assistant. There, she was trained by the best to be the best in her craft.

Ayana attended cosmetology school at Atlanta Technical College where she excelled in each of her course levels. She won numerous awards during her time at the college. Ayana went on to graduate at the top of her class and landed a position as a Hair Stylist at one of Atlanta’s top salons right out of school.

In February 2009, Ayana decided to share her lover of hair and beauty to the masses by launching TheHaiRazor.com. From then on, TheHaiRazor.com along with TheHaiRazorTV, quickly became a top source in the search for beauty news.

Being in the “hair game” for a while now, Ayana is continuing to make a name for herself in the beauty industry. Watch out, because she is a force to be reckoned with.

    OMG, Ayana I am in a suburb outside of Philadelphia, and since living here for almost 5 years I cant find anyone that can do my hair the way I want it. I am older now and love short, short hair now. I saw your youtube and said I have to come to Atlanta for you to work your magic. I will be scheduling an appointment with you for some time in March. You are the bomb!

    I have seen your work and you have great skills. I’m in my 40’s and I’m looking for a new sexy style. I kind of like the style Taraji P Henson is wearing in her latest movie. Can I make appointment with you.

    I have been searching for diy short hair tutorials for months and I must say that your videos are not only helpful but a giant burst of fresh air! I found your mold before dryer tutorial extremely helpful and was curious if there were any plans for a tutorial on how to style hair after the molding and drying? Keep up the excellent work!
