Master Celebrity Stylist, Penna’e Akpuru, is also a life coach, spiritual teacher, transformational speaker, and author. Her awe-inspiring story of overcoming extreme adversity stands as a testimony to the ability each of us has to create the life we desire—no matter what we’ve experienced, or what we have done, in the past.
Pennae’s God-given mission is to help each person whose life is defined by the pain she’s suffered to live past that pain and enjoy the abundant life she deserves.
For more than thirty years, the celebrity beauty industry has rewarded Penna’e with the lifestyle of abundance she dreamed of when she was a little girl growing up in the ‘hood. The industry introduced her to clients at the top of their games, such as Steve Harvey, Ruby Dee, Mary Mary, Shirley Strawberry, and many more. Each of these interactions and relationships fueled Pennae’s desire to serve others by sharing her story with the world. The celebrities she styles are living their dreams, and Penna’e believes every person deserves that same privilege.
In the midst of a highly successful career as an award-winning celebrity hairstylist, Penna’e realized her calling was larger than the spiritual and personal work she naturally did with her clients and her staff. As a survivor of child molestation, rape, homelessness, food addiction, drug addiction and overdose, a massive stroke, and other major life challenges, Penna’e learned life lessons she needed to share beyond the walls of her salon.
The calling to reach as many people as possible with her message of redemption led Penna’e to launch a career as a life coach and spiritual teacher. In her forthcoming book, Living Past Your Pain to Live Your Dreams she teaches how to get over the past, find happiness, and finally live a life you love.
