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 the one thing I refuse to do during #quarantine is gain the Corona 19! So I subscribed to @nulifefitnesscamp TV and I start my mornings with a workout. This morning, my husband @crewcamp_bo joined me!
.
.
We did a 45 minute cardio class with @mieshanulife and just when he was ready to quit she came through the TV lol literally listen to the video lol... this was almost the end of our workout in his defense 😂 and swipe for the Martin comparison lol
.
.
My husband and I have committed to pushing each other to stay fit (I even made him throw away his brand new apple pie) but it’s also kinda fun and another way to connect while we are home together. I do all of our healthy shopping and cooking but he joins me in the kitchen for a glass of red wine. Tomorrow we will also start @watermeloneggrolls @nike running challenge of 30 miles in April! .
.
What are you guys doing to stay fit? .

  • Last week I started an amazing new weight loss program and in the first week I lost 5lbs without stepping foot in the gym! What did I do? Simply change my eating habits and start using @profile_sanford ! #AD .
.

This program (which is backed by science and takes a DNA sample) was developed by physicians and researchers tasked with creating a healthy, safe, and personalized weight loss experience. In doing so I am paired with a Health Coach. She helps me create my weekly plan, set goals and pick my weekly products. We have weekly meetings (now calls) to talk about my progress and goals so I love the accountability that comes with this program.
.
.
Now that I'm shut in, I can get everything I need for the week delivered right to my door step! I can't wait to see my progress- especially since I've started working out. Check out my IG stories to see my week one results. Read more about @profile_sanford by clicking the link in my bio! Receive $100 off when you use the code: COURTNEY100

  • The Coronavirus hit #CourtneyCoversCleveland pretty hard! No events to host, no events to plan, no events to attend or promote. No new restaurants or bars to cover. A few contracts canceled or postponed and... my $1,500 MacBook Pro that I had less than a year Bryce spilled coffee on the day before my birthday and it never turned back on. No AppleCare and of course liquid damage isn’t includee in the manufacturers warranty. So let’s say the last few weeks of business have been rough...
.
.

In spite of it all... this picture is everything! I am beyond blessed to have such an amazing family- spending time with my kids all day every day has filled my heart. If you watch my stories you know we are having a good time being quarantined. I spend most of my days in the kitchen— literally all day lol cooking various meals- and playing games or learning with kids! My husband is missing because he was binge watching Billions in the other room lol .
This is just what I needed. Between my computer breaking, my migraines coming back- and all my friends telling me to slow down. This break from everything has been a gift in disguise. I hope you are enjoying being at home with your family as much as I am! What are you guys doing? How are you guys holding up? How’s your business? How many times have you been to the grocery store lol? .

  • The face you make when mommy says you will still be reading and doing educational work over the next three weeks that school is out. #AD .

That might’ve made him sad but this new OREO Shamrock McFlurry definitely made him happy! Lucky for us @McDonalds is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Shamrock Shake (which I had) and for a limited time you can enjoy one of these two treats too! .
.
Not only that but for every Shamrock Shake sold, McDonald’s will donate $.25 back to one of my favorite charities @RMHC — it’s a double win! #McDonalds #ShamrockShake dotheShamrockShakeRMHC #CourtneyCoversCleveland #stpatricksday #greenshakes #mcflurry #oreomcflurry #sweettreats #afterschoolsnack
  • Last night #CourtneyCoversCleveland had  the pleasure of hosting the Advanced Screening of Little Fires Everywhere at Silverspot @discover_pinecrest .

We had such a great time! All the guests received a Little Fires Everywhere notebook and T-shirt, and complimentary popcorn and beverages. .
