Our Goal

Help rising entrepreneurs develop the essential business and soft skills needed to grow & strengthen their business.

M.O.B. online academy

M.O.B. Academy is a dual academy with focus on building the braidless skillset of beauty pros and a place where we strengthen the business minds and skillsets of young and developing business professionals.

Through our business academy, our mission is to equip young professionals with essential business skills and people skills that will help them sustain and grow their business through relationships. We know that in order to have a successful business and relationships you need people, and you must know how to treat them. The quicker young professionals acquire these relationship skills the sooner they may be able to grow and develop in their careers or build a successful business.

Through our braidless academy, our mission is to equip beauty professionals with a skillset that is high dollar and in high demand, leaving them with the ability to work smarter and not harder behind the chair. With this skillset combined with different essential business skills, we are helping to create a financial gateway for proper retirement behind the chair.

Our Goal

Our goal is to foster a training environment that will assist young business professionals and aspiring business owners in their careers. Our essential business and soft skills programs are created using real life scenarios and role play. We believe this approach is more effective in career and life development.

Meet the Founder & Instructor

Shanitra "Shan" founded M.O.B. Academy on the premises of helping transform the braidless skillsets and business mindsets of beauty professionals. She wanted to help her beauty peers build a business not just through their skillset but through learning essential business skills that would help sustain and grow their business.

Shanitra’s former restaurant management and HR Specialist skills helped create and shape her business work ethics in her beauty business. In those roles is where she learned invaluable customer service, communication, management, and time management skills. She resolved employee conflicts, facilitated group orientations, and customer service trainings. These core skills are what foster the business environment for her own beauty business. It’s what has helped her sustain and continue to grow her beauty business.

As M.O.B. Academy continues to grow the business sector of the academy, Shanitra begins to realize that what our academy offers is not only built for beauty pros but for all who want to grow, strengthen, or acquire new business skills.

All of our business trainings are lead by Shanitra "Shan" who has over 20 years of customer service, conflict resolution, and time management skills. She has over 8 years of running and growing a beauty business, with over nine years’ experience in performing the no-braid sew-in weaving technique. She’s dedicated to teaching and helping others grow. Through our academy, Shanitra “Shan” has formed relationships with local colleges and trained students across the globe.
