Hey goddess,

thanks for stopping by. My name is Mary Ebele & I am the Creative Director of Nubian Goddess Beauty. Honestly, this post has been a long time coming but hey, it had to be done at some point right?

I grew up in Africa - Lagos, Nigeria to be precise. I studied at Queens College Lagos & after my graduation, I was off to College in New York. Life in America was a major culture shock for me. I grew up in the city but the lifestyle here was different. It was a lot to take in, but like the millions of Africans before me, I adjusted & adapted.

Summer 2015, I remember making the decision to try out faux locs in my New York apartment. I was at a turning point in my life - just graduated college. I studied Criminal Justice by the way but today, I'm a Business Owner. How did that happen? lol. Although that was not the plan, when you have that creative fire, it burns too strong you dare not ignore it. So, I quit my 9 - 5 for the entrepreneurial journey & I am never looking back.

One hot summer day, I decided to try out faux locs, ditch the weaves for a while & embrace my natural hair and here we are, two years later - still in love with locs.
