In Anastasia's household, creativity was important, which allowed Anastasia to form an imagination that grows with age. As a graduate of New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, Anastasia prides herself on being a mixed media artist and likes to embark on life through the eyes of an artist. She works with things such as paints, sculptures, and of course, hair.

Anastasia was taught the practice of holistic medicine and how to work with natural herbs and remedies, through her family. This is a skill that comes in handy while she creates her own products for herself and her clients.

Anastasia is a Deva inspired curl specialist who believes in the idea of always learning new things, especially about your curls. In her salon, Anastasia conducts her client's experiences as learning experiences.

Her goal is to make her clients self-sufficient when it comes to their natural hair. She expresses that natural hair is who you are; it is the way god made you; the way you're intended to look.

Anastasia describes herself as more of a natural hair coach than a stylist.
