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.

I'm Faded Barbershop

Perry Irchirl Jr was born and raised here in Houston. He has been licensed for 4 years, with 3 years of shop experience. He learned and practiced not only himself but multiple friends while attending school. They inspired him to pursue the industry shortly after college. 

College life afforded Perry the opportunity to build a clientele and served as a stepping stone to developing his brand. He would work nights, go to class in the morning, then cut hair right after. It was a passion for him that just came naturally. Growing up he used to go to his grandmother's barber and beauty salon and watch everyone come in and leave in high spirits which inspired him; he was unaware that one day he would be a part of the same amazing industry.

Manasseh Experience

Denise Jordan is a native Houstonian who demonstrates hairstyling not just as a profession but as a passion. She owns “The Manasseh Experience” hair salon, where her clients describe it as “The Five Star Hair Spa”. Denise is knowledgeable in revitalizing damaged hair and specializes in various hair textures, lengths, and extension installations. She is also a skilled maker of customized wig units including frontals, closures, u- parts, and clip ins.   She also  participates in cosmetology programs that teach students how to make wigs. Serving as a mentor for the Houston Independent School District, Denise encourages students to pursue their dreams. At a young age, she always dreamed of becoming a hairstylist, inspired by her late grandmother's wig collection. Denise would restyle her grandmother's wigs to keep them looking just as beautiful as her grandmother. As a cosmetologist, Denise encountered several women suffering hair loss caused by autoimmune diseases, stress, medication, etc. As they expressed their grief and hopelessness, she was compelled to create wigs for comfort and was successful at formulating “Improve ME” hair oil to stimulate and strengthen hair follicles to promote hair growth.

Her heart's desire for people's lives to be impacted motivates her to teach innovatively. Denise is currently pursuing her goals of becoming a cosmetology instructor, developing her hair products, and creating a designer line of wigs.

JessBundts

My passion for baking began many years ago when my husband wanted a good homemade cake and suggested I try to make one. I accepted the challenge and made a butter pound/bundt cake from scratch. It turned out great (for my first attempt) and was delicious! Over the years, I’ve tweaked/perfected the recipe, until I came up with the winner. It became famous among family and friends and was requested for all the gatherings.

 

After prayerful consideration and encouragement from family and friends, in 2018, I put my career in finance to the side and established Jess Bundts.

 

Although it all began with bundt cakes, we've expanded the menu and added a wide variety of offerings including custom cakes, desserts, and treats.

 

At Jess Bundts, our goal is to wow our clients by providing options that not only appeal to the eye but are also delicious. We are passionate about all our products, that is why everything is made fresh, and homemade using only the best quality ingredients.

Our sweets are available in a variety of sizes and flavors. The perfect sweet treat for all occasions/celebrations or just to treat yourself!
