Keya Neal x Choose Beauty Modern Salon Podcast

"With over 25 years of experience as a stylist, Keya Neal is working to break the “textural boundaries” that she says have long separated the hair industry. Keya’s passion for hair color and education led to the conception of Kolour Kulture, an educational resource for stylists who are particularly interested in the science of hair color and how it interacts with various hair textures. She also launched an education series, “Texture Vs. Race,” and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. We learn how she has made a point of putting herself in environments that might not always feel comfortable but where she has continued to grow and contribute to change."
