Member at Large

Ziyadah Shamsiddeen has spent more than twenty years working as a natural hairstylist. Early in her career, she was inspired by the transformations she provided for her clients and opened her first salon, Aneu in Atlanta, Georgia. It was voted best for natural hair by Creative Loafing Magazine three years in a row. Ziyadah was blessed to find more success when she returned home to Baltimore, working alongside some of the top natural hair stylists in the industry. Since April, she has opened More Tresses Salon in Towson, Maryland and a second location in metro Atlanta. It is her mission to provide healthy haircare, use the best products and techniques, and provide a superb customer experience. Ziyadah is also a Community Leader for the Crown Campaign – a nationwide legislative effort to end hair discrimination against people of color.
