Tiffini is a graduate of Clark Atlanta University and a former corporate bank executive turned entrepreneur and digital influencer. In 2015, she became a pioneer in the hair and beauty industry after turning her 20-year side hustle of braiding and protective styling into a multi-million dollar beauty brand by creating the first pre-curled and looped synthetic crochet hair. Curlkalon Hair Collection was later acquired. Today, Tiffini has expanded her vision for creating safe and affordable synthetic hair extensions with the launch of her second beauty brand, Latched+Hooked Beauty—catching the attention of celebrities such as Gabrielle Union and mainstream media outlets like Allure magazine, which named her brand one of the best brands for Women of Color.
