As an Alumni participant of the Harlem Division’s Urban Initiative founded by former President, Bill Clinton, Tear Drops continues to flourish in a highly competitive market and climate and is rolling out the NEW “TDE” boasting a new website, online booking, increased hours and services while continuing to maintain quality standards and a personal touch. 

As an accomplished-licensed hair stylist and designer, Sophia’s hair and apparel fashions have appeared on national television (“Amateur Night at the Apollo,” “All My Children,” “Essence Awards”. Her hairstyles have been published in “Black Hair Passion,” the Amsterdam News,” and the “New York Times.”   Sophia continues to service a wide range of VIP’s, celebrities, and senior citizens. 

Sophia offers experience she enjoys sharing what she has acquired from traveling and producing fashion shows in New York, California and Europe. Her wide range of knowledge motivates her to focus not only on personal hair care and design, but also on community needs.  As such Ms. Sophia provides internships for individuals having completed cosmetology school and needing a “real life” environment to put their education and newly developed skills to work.  But Ms. Sophia doesn’t stop there, she believes …”It Takes a Village to Raise a Child”.  From that adage, Ladies of Elegance United was born, a diverse organization founded on community experience and spirit.  The program provides the youth of the community with mentoring in preforming and visual arts, academic support, and career and personal development curriculum.  To date the youth of Ladies of Elegance United have been instrumental in producing and presenting three plays about Community Leaders, a Fashion Show and various personal development workshops.  Currently,  the youth of Ladies of Elegance United with the help of Mary Seymour- Grammy Award Winning Music Publisher of Alicia Keyes song "You Don't Know My Name and son, Kenny J. Seymour- musical director of the Tony Award winning Play "Memphis, are preparing Rev. Al Sharpton: A Historical Testimony˜, a mini play on the great community leader. A snip-it of the play will be featured during Tear Drop’s commemoration celebration. (www.tdelegance for additional information)
