Chauna Payne has had a lifelong obsession with hair. As early as 5, Chauna has always been in the salon. Her motivation comes from both her grandmothers, who were salon owners and WIG WEARERS!!! She has always loved the way that one can express themselves through different styles. Whether short or long, hair defines who the person is, wants to be or wants to convey to others.
Chauna Payne has been a licensed Cosmetologist for over 10 years and holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Missouri in Business Administration with an emphasis in Finance. She owns Heavenly Hair Ever After, a lifestyle brand for Women and Children that provides Cranial Prosthetics, Mastectomy Products and a children’s brand featuring a bald fairy angel named Celeste. Chauna is a certified trainer through the Look Good, Feel Better program administered by The American Cancer Society, a certified Mastectomy Fitter, and Prosthetic/Orthotic Supplier. Chauna has worked at the Muny Theatre and the Fabulous Fox in St. Louis, Mo. Chauna has also authored 3 books with a 4th one coming soon-Insurance Billing For The Beauty Professional, Heavenly Hair Ever After, Celeste and The Science Fair and Celeste and The Wig Shop.
The career path she chose is very close to her heart because her mother is a 35 year breast cancer survivor. Her continued strength and perseverance has been a driving force for her medical insurance training program and the creation of Celeste. She IS her Sister’s Keeper…..
