Stylist Moneika Moore, along with Taylor's Barber Shop owner and lead stylist Tom Taylor, and fellow stylist Quenishia Waters stand ready to assist customers with all of their hairstyle needs.

Tom Taylor, owner and proprietor of Taylor's Barber Shop, 2610 U.S. Hwy. 51, now has two hairstylists in his employ who are trained in all the latest and trendiest coiffures and hairstyles in the business.

Moneika Moore, a licensed hairstylist for the past 15 years, has been on staff for more than five years, for more than a third of the time that Taylor has been located at his shop on U.S. 51, after making the move from Hernando's historic West End district more than 14 years ago.

Moore, of Coldwater, said she is constantly updating her knowledge of hair care products and styles.

"I do everything I can to try to keep up with the latest styles and fashion," Moore said. "I specialize in keeping my clients hair healthy. We use professional hair care products and constantly talk with clients about how to keep their hair healthy. We're all about promoting healthy hair."

Quineshia Waters has recently joined the staff to assist Taylor and Moore with providing the latest and trendiest styles in hair care and fashion.

"There are a lot of new styles out there," Waters said. "Hair is my passion. I enjoy making people feel good and confident," added Waters, who has future plans to teach cosmetology in the future. "There is no limit to the knowledge that I seek to improve my technique and provide the very best for my customers."

The Tutwiler native, began styling hair at an early age. "I started doing hair when I was 12. By the age of 15, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I have been licensed for 11 years and I'm licensed in three states, Arkansas, Tennessee and Mississippi."

Waters holds a business degree form Coahoma Community College.

For Taylor's part, he is pleased to be able to provide hair styling and hair products for men and women, which feature the very latest on the hair care market.

"We try and stay current on the all the latest styles and the different styles that our customers request," Taylor said. "There are a lot of new styles out there. I will be going to hair shows to learn all of the latest styles and cuts. We are here for the customer."
