Vixen Chat: Shekinah Jo Talks ‘Weave Trip’, Being An Entrepreneur, and Life Outside Of Reality TV
VIBE Vixen: How did you get your start in the hair industry?
Shekinah Jo: I started out at a beauty school and got my cosmetology degree.
How did you meet Tiny?
I met Tiny about 7 years ago when she was pregnant with Major. We automatically clicked and she liked the way I did her hair and that was the start of our crazy friendship.
Before the TV exposure how would someone describe Shekinah?
I’m the same person I was before I was on TV. I’m always going to keep it real. Most of my friends would say I like to have fun and just have a good time. You know, when they’re stressed out or depressed they always come to me and I crack a joke and it’s done. I would like to say I’m a cool person to be around.
Were you ever hesistant about being on TV?
I was a little hesitant. Tiny and I are always together so one day I came to White Water with the family while they were filming for the show, just being my regular self, and I guess it caught the attention of the producer. Honestly, I didn’t even know he was the producer because he was dressed normal, no camera, no nothing. He came up to me and asked if I wanted to be apart of the show and I was like sure. I didn’t know what to expect but I figured if he saw something in me then me just being myself was perfectly fine.
What was your main objective for being on the T.I. & Tiny Show?
