How it all Started

Celestina Abankwa, a passionate and driven native Ghanaian, discovered her love for hair at a remarkably young age. With a fervent desire to make a mark in the industry, she dreamt of owning a thriving salon and achieving financial success. However, her aspirations took an unexpected turn when she migrated to the United States to join her parents.

As the only child, Celestina was burdened with immense expectations from her parents. Pursuing higher education was not a choice but a non-negotiable requirement. While she had a deep affinity for children, science, and math, the calling to become a hair stylist continued to resonate within her. To honor her parents' wishes, she enrolled in college and pursued a degree in Business Administration.

During her academic journey, Celestina took a courageous leap and attended a prestigious hairdressing school in Boston, Massachusetts. Upon completion in 2000, her mother supported her dreams by opening a salon of her own, aptly named HAIR CASTLE. Despite her newfound success, Celestina knew that fulfilling her parents' expectations meant completing her college education. Determined to strike a balance, she resumed her studies and graduated from Central Connecticut State University in 2013, earning a Bachelor of Science in Tourism and Hospitality Management.

Driven by a resilient spirit and a desire to learn from her past experiences, Celestina's journey led her to pursue an MBA in Entrepreneurial Thinking and Innovative Practice at Bay Path University in Longmeadow, Massachusetts, which she accomplished in 2022.

Armed with newfound knowledge and a burning ambition, Celestina decided to venture into business once again, leveraging the lessons learned from her previous endeavors. Thus, Zaidas Braiding and Cuts was born—a manifestation of her unwavering dedication to providing clients with an unforgettable experience, coupled with affordable prices.

With Zaidas Braiding and Cuts, Celestina is poised to make a significant impact in the industry, offering her clients nothing short of a spectacular and transformative experience.
