Touch of Heaven Artistry
Markeita S Pruitt, proprietor, and operator of beauty brand Touch of Heaven Artistry and CEO of The Suite Life Salons, LLC., and The Suite Life Luxury Suites, was born with a passion for hair. Growing up as a kid, she played “beauty shop” with all her friends, and became well known throughout her academic years as the “neighborhood beautician”. In 2004, after several layoffs, she decided to follow her passion and registered at her local college to obtain her Cosmetology degree. The triumph that followed that decision has been monumentous.
Her salon space has always been a place of ministry that paves a way for mental, emotional, and spiritual growth not only for her clientele but for herself as well.
A published author, and currently working on her second and third, Markeita anticipates greater opportunities to educate stylists, minister to the youth and women of all cultures, as well as continue developing her businesses and launching new ventures as the Lord instructs. Her resume includes collaborations with brands such as Cantu, Motions, Kinky Curly Yaki, Kinkistry, TeamNatural, Bella Kinks, Uncle Funky’s Daughter, Naturally Happy Hair, Aunt Jackie's (just to list a few) and stood on educational platforms such as The Natural Hair Industry Convention and Mississippi Natural Hair Expo.

The Royal Experience
Francheska began experimenting with her own hair at an early age by creating different hairstyles. She sharpened her skills through the years by styling family and friends. This simple fact made it clear that hairstyling would play a role in her life, but had no idea just how big that role would be.
Hair has always been a passion for Francheska and can recall that no matter what venture of life she was in, hairstyling was always there. Francheska has been blessed with not only the talent but also the passion to care about people and protect their hair in the process. In 2016, she decided to turn her side passion into her main passion. The Royal Experience Salon began. What started off as just a small vision has now given birth to greater meaning and purpose.
Francheska aims to teach others that it is possible to have healthy hair while wearing protective styles.
Her career has afforded the opportunity to venture into other sectors of the beauty industry and looks to the future - hopeful for what's in store.
