Growing up on the south side of Chicago;  Shanté Parker, also known as Luxury Strand, always knew she wanted to make a change within this world.


From watching her mother make wigs and creating such innovative looks, it truly inspired her. Despite her mothers inability to grow hair significantly, the wigs she made always looked very natural. At the early age of 8 she grew the same interest . Shanté began practicing on friends and she realized how much of an impact she was making on their confidence, so she decided to attend Paul Mitchell located in Chicago, IL to further her education.

There she joined many charity events and had the honor of winning Illinois Nation Wide Beauty School competition. After completing school, she couldn't bear the fact that many people in the world are suffering from their lack of confidence due to an inability to grow hair.  Shanté then joined American Cancer SocietyLook Good Feel Better Program and became a Certified Hair Replacement Specialist. Having the ability to uplift a indivuial spirit and confidence is all that she lives for.
