Arlene Martin could never have guessed when she was growing up in Youngstown, Ohio, that she would one day become one of the most sought-after hair stylists in the fashion and beauty world and work behind the scenes on one of the most anticipated shows on the Starz network, P-Valley.
“I believe that the artistry of hair actually chose me. When I really think about it, I feel like it was a calling at a very early age,” Martin shares with ESSENCE exclusively. “I have always been a creative person, so it wasn’t a surprise that my destiny would be intertwined with the artistry of hair.”
