COOL PEOPLE IN CLE: RICKEA HAMPTON

Thanks to Siera and The Ginn family, I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Rickea Hampton for a few years! We share that Framily (Friends who are Family) so we’ve spent a lot of time together creating memories! Rickea did my flower girls hair for my wedding (so cute that it’s pictured above), we were roommates at a bachelorette party in Jamaica, and amongst other things, she occasionally does my hair!  She’s such a sweet person and I really admire what she’s trying to do in Cleveland, which is acknowledge and support those within the beauty industry.

Briefly tell me a little about yourself:

Rickea Hampton, Known to the beauty Industry as Coco., hairstylist, and site owner of Hair And The Blog (online platform for the beauty industry).

You were born and raised in Cleveland, what made you stay?
I was born and raised here in Cleveland. I haven’t left yet because I have unfinished business here, and there are some great things I would like to bring in our city.

You created a first of it’s kind event in Cleveland, can you tell me a little about it?
On September 24, 2017, Hair And The Blog will be presenting The Industry Award Show to recognize those in the Industry, and commending them on their hard work. This is definitely an event you don’t want to miss, if you haven’t’ already purchased a ticket, there will be a limited amount sold at the door! Early arrival is highly suggested.

Why was it important for you to make this happen in Cleveland?
It was so important to make this happen in Cleveland because we have so much underrated talent here in our city. It’s time for the world to see them and get the recognition deserved. There is strength in numbers, and Hair And The Blog plans to continue to bring the Industry together for the greater good to make a greater impact for our culture.

What do you love about Cleveland?
What I love about Cleveland…CLEVELAND HUSTLES HARDER. We work so hard for all the things we accomplish, and we as a city should take pride in that.

What are some of of your favorite places to hangout in Cleveland?
Some of my favorite places to hang out are in Downtown, Cleveland. The Flats to be even more specific. In one area there are so many things to do, people to see, many restaurants to try, and an amazing view.

What do you wish more people knew about Cleveland?
I wish people knew of all the COOL people in Cleveland. There is Plenty of us. We have so many resourceful people and awesome events that take place here that I wish even those who lived here were more aware of.

  • So this is me at work yesterday just fine at #22weekspregnant lol. I received a few messages for which I greatly appreciate the concern, but people work while pregnant all the time. I actually really enjoy working and as many of you know,  it’s hard for me to sit still. I started  freelancing for ESPN/ABC in 2007 so I’ve actually worked for them every pregnancy that I’ve had with all 3 of my boys sooo... during Monday Night Football, College Football/Basketball, NBA games, NBA finals and more. Walking is healthy lol and i do a lot of that on game days. My body will certainly tell me when it’s time to scale back but I’m pretty sure I have a few months in me. Besides that, I have the best work family ever and they go above and beyond to make sure that I’m fine! Tired at times... but good! #LetMeLive #LetMeWorkLOL #WeAreFeelingGreat #WorkingWhilePregnant
  • Who would’ve thought two neighbors in 5th grade, crazy about ropes of thunder would grow up to marry cousins! I’m so happy to have you in my life as a sister/cousin/friend always a call or text away. Here’s to pushing each other to our full potential, reminding each other that self care is first, being great moms, God-fearing, learning wives (LOL) and always being a shoulder to lean on— I just love you @mrs_dboyd 😘  #NewYear #NewSalaries #NewGoals #NewGrowth #bo16thbirthday #BlackGirlMagic #WCW
  • So while my family enjoys dinner out for Little Bryon’s Birthday, I’m home with #BryceCameron and his friends Mickey, Donald and Goofy watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse over and over again 😂 #MomLife #StillSick #INeedToSleepTrainAgain #ThisIsTheOnlyWayHeWillSitStill #DaddyNeedsToGetHome
  • Happy 16th Birthday to our oldest child @1bryon_ !!!! Being a #blendedfamily has worked so well for us, I’m so thankful your mom allowed me to have such a presence in your life! You’ve made my job sooooo easy and I truly love you like my own. It’s been such a pleasure watching you grow up over the years and  I’m excited for all that’s in store for your future. Thanks for being the best big brother to Pauly and finding the patience to play with Bryce- I know you’ll be great to your sister as well. You are an awesome son and I’m so blessed to be your bonus mom! I’m hoping to get better just in time for your party lol #HappyBirthdaySon
  • And at #5monthspregnant turns out baby girl and I are sick with pneumonia not strep throat. I was super scared when I talked to the doctor and I regret not asking more questions (FYI- ALWAYS ask questions). I’ll be calling back tomorrow for sure, but in the meantime we are home resting, taking our meds and  focused on getting better. It’s so hard for me to rest but I’m definitely doing it! Baby girl is moving so it’s bringing me much comfort as I lay here confined to the couch and bed urghhh #IHateBeingSick
