A native of Washington, D.C., Evie Johnson grew up in the school of hard knocks. She was one of twelve children and became a mother herself at the tender age of 13. Evie’s infant son, Tony, was diagnosed with Kawasaki disease, a rare condition involving the inflammation of blood vessels. As a teenager, Evie proved herself to be a high achiever, maintaining a 4.0 GPA at her high school while taking daily trips to the hospital to visit her sick son.
Evie realized early on that she was responsible for the destinies of both herself and her son. Passionate about hairstyling, Evie first made a name for herself as a hair braider and worked her way up to becoming a hairstylist. At just 24 years old, she opened her own hair salon in the Washington metropolitan area. Evie has been trained by prestigious names in hair styling, such as Vidal Sassoon, Pivot Point and Activia while product lines such as Motions and Mizani represent her expertise.
Throughout her years as a platform artist, stylist, entrepreneur, business owner, consultant and mother of four, Evie has proven herself to be a force to be reckoned with.
