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.

  • I cant keep up with my DMs! This is the podcast I’m encouraging everyone especially those in #cleveland to listen to! The third season focuses on the criminal justice system locally. Real cases, real judges, real prosecutors! It’s heartbreaking and more motivation to get out and VOTE!!!! I listened to all five episodes back to back the second being the most disturbing! Judge Raul is up for re-election this year! Go listennnn @serialpodcast it might not paint the best picture of our city but it’s happening everywhere! This is #courtneycoverscleveland approved !
  • Well there’s a first time for everything... It’s been ten years since I attended this University (2004-2008) and today was the first #Duquesne Homecoming that I’ve ever been to as an alumni. Despite the downpour and multiple delays to the football game, it was kind of cool to eat lunch at the red ring and walk my family around campus sharing the stories that could be told 😂 #duquesneuniversity  #duqhomecoming
  • Everything about @arrionedeanna and @twansteele wedding was beautiful! I just love love... and I LOVEEE weddings especially when you get to celebrate with  friends! It’s also great to see young people who still believe in commitment and the journey of marriage.

Tudor Arms was an excellent choice for this intimate wedding. This venue is most certainly #courtneycoverscleveland approved! #LoveMadeOfSteele
  • So excited to be here to celebrate the union of my not so little brother @twansteele and his beautiful new wife @arrionedeanna ! This is the first wedding of a friend of Cameron and my heart is full of joy although my eyes are full of tears. I love him and I’m so proud of the man he has become! Everything  is beautiful and I’m just so happy for you both to join the married club! It’s amazing but it’s also hard work and the good always outweighs the bad. Not every day will be perfect but it will be worth it! What GOD has brought together let no man come between... I love you both congrats!!!!!! #lovemadeofsteele
  • Thank you @traceeellisross I was literally  just discussing this at Book Club!!! @mrsjazminemarie @myssliyanalee @ajalewis how timely!!!! #selfcare @dr_mimi and the ability to say NO! I’m really going to work on that it’s one of my struggles, I try to do everything for everybody and attend everything and it’s not only impossible but it’s overwhelming. Even as a wife, mom, blogger, working full time, overseeing a sports program I still find it soooo hard to say NO! My schedule is consistently jammed packed and sometimes I just want a day to do nothing! It never happens because I have not mastered the art of saying NO! Urghhh I’m definitely going to try... for me and my sanity! Anyone have this issue?!?
  • It’s #NationalCoffeeDay and Football Saturday! I’m game day ready... with my Hot Pumpkin Chai in hand. Head over to #courtneycoverscleveland to find out where you can pick your Pumpkin... and choose between a  Hot, Iced  or Frozen Pumpkin Spice Latte, Hot Pumpkin Chai, Frozen Chai and the Pumpkin Cold Brew.
