Beyonce, Solange, Brandy and Zoe Kravitz are just a few of the celebrities that 24-year-old Nigerian hairstylist Susan Oludele has blessed with her in-demand braiding skills. Inspired at a young age by her mother's hairstyling talents, the New York City native taught herself how to replicate those styles on her friends and family and later attended cosmetology school. Social media has played a large part in the swift growth of Susan's reputation, particularly on Instagram where her account @africancreature has 42,500 followers and counting. Currently, Susan and her team of talented cosmetologists are in the process of moving their salon from Queens to the Brooklyn neighborhood of East New York. Her entrepreneurial instincts also prompted her to launch Zuzu, a line of high-quality crochet wigs.
