Hairstylist. Makeup Artist. Groomer. Aleetha Clanton is all of these things and more! She attended Paul Mitchell cosmetology where she perfect her artistry. Fueled by passion and motivated with persistence, Aleetha managed to establish clients like NBC Universal, Macy’s, Avon, & much more. She has had her work featured in the pages of Elle, Bravo TV, displayed on billboards in Paris and grace the runways during New York Fashion Week. Her artistic vision, determination, research skills and work ethic created big opportunities for her talents to be showcased.
Many people viewed her decision to pursue her creative passion as a hobby, not a career move. Without a mentor and the lack of industry support, Aleetha was forced to adapt a new lifestyle to make her dreams a reality. As a result, vacations turned into business trips, parties became networking events, fancy clothes were replaced by black attire, her bedroom was soon her office, TV became non-existent, and every penny earned was contributed to investing in her brand. Aleetha truly believes that there is no dream too big to achieve. Her way of thinking is, “Why not me, Why not you, Why not us!” She strongly feels that success comes to those who work hard and believe in themselves. She lives by her motto, “Every minute that you are not living your dream, someone else is.”
Her experiences includes working with editorial publications such as Vogue, Marie Claire, and Elle. Aleetha has also worked with celebrities Solange, Rick Fox, Rotimi, Jojo Fletcher and Miles Tiller to name a few.
