General Information
Tanisha Akinloye, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Empowering Through Beauty, Inc., has more than 10 years of professional experience in the beauty industry – most recently as the owner of a highly successful upscale beauty salon in southern Connecticut. While she cut and styled her customers’ hair, she heard life stories of illness, grief from military widowhood, economic hardship, addiction, and domestic abuse. She saw her clients’ inner beauty and strength emerge as she helped them look more beautiful, listened with empathy, and offered advice. Their improved self-esteem helped them to change their lives.

Inspired by the changes she saw in her clients, recognizing the potential to make a difference in under-served women’s lives, and encouraged by those with whom she had worked, Ms. Akinloye launched Empowering Through Beauty, Inc. in 2010. Since its inception, Empowering Through Beauty has served in seven shelters throughout Connecticut and hosted special events. The Empowering Through Beauty team helps people to have the confidence and courage to better their lives, as some have graduated from educational programs, and others have obtained jobs and housing.

Empowering through Beauty prides itself in using beauty to help women see what their lives could be–empowering people to make positive change by offering practical life skills and hope. A different future is possible, and Empowering Through Beauty is helping to make it so.

“Empowering through Beauty prides itself in being the source of hope fo our beauty industry and those we serve stylists,” says Tanisha Akinloye. “I believe if we help people look and feel confident they will sustain income, economic security and complete well being in the workforce and life,” says Tanisha Akinloye
