“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
DALLAS — For Kindria R. Hawkins-Simpson, arguably her life’s grandest, God-mandated encounter had suddenly taken on a rather unanticipated detour earlier this year.
“I had a dream and woke up with an unexplained joy,” Hawkins-Simpson told longtime journalist Andre Johnson during an exclusive interview Tuesday afternoon. “Go back and reinstate my cosmetology license.”
The rest, as they say, was history.
Once a veteran Corporate America professional who, during her illustrious, notable career, had evolved mightily as one of the most respected and beloved personalities in her industry, Hawkins-Simpson subsequently deemed it essential to reconnect with one of her greatest, most sought-after passions, one whereby she would greatly enhance and help revitalize the overall appearance of people from various walks of life.
Today, unlike never before, this 41-year-old Tulsa, Oklahoma native has witnessed her long-awaited dream come full circle by way of the much-anticipated birthing of a new chapter, one that has appropriately landed her in the world of entrepreneurship.
An accomplished Certified Hair Health and Hair Loss Practitioner, Hawkins-Simpson is owner and chief executive officer of Rekindle Hair Restoration Solutions.
WHAT ABOUT KINDRIA: https://www.styleseat.com/m/book/v/kindriahawkins.

“As a Hair Loss Practitioner, I am a specialist in the health of hair, scalp disorders and hair loss,” Hawkins-Simpson said. “I’ve trained in the health of the hair and to look for and identify hair loss problems in a holistic way i.e. genetics, scalp disorder, chemical damage and styling habits, just to name a few. After an extensive consultation, I will be able to offer a customized all-natural individual treatment plan, give nutritional advice and recommend lifestyle changes to improve the health and appearance of the hair.”
“If you’ve fallen out of love with your hair for any reason, come see me,” Hawkins-Simpson emphasizes at http://www.salonsatbellasuites.com/. “I work miracles with all types of hair. My skills range from hard-to-manage hair to color corrections. I look forward to restoring your hair to the soft, shiny condition you once loved.”
In addition, consumers from various parts of the country have thoroughly embraced Hawkins-Simpson’s hands-on approach as a booming, thriving Hair Loss Practitioner.
Said one client in a July 2016 review at https://www.styleseat.com/m/book/v/kindriahawkins: “Kindria is the most professional stylist that I’ve ever let cut my hair. In addition, you can tell she really appreciates and cares for her clients. From the initial consultation to the new client kit that I received after my first visit, I could tell she was different from what I’ve been used too. Just this past weekend, Kindria had a “Client Appreciation Party.” Really!!!! Now how do you think that makes me feel…. APPRECIATED!!!!”
And then there’s another client: “OMG! I was so happy to finally have someone seriously listen to ME, exam my hair and scalp, then DISCUSS WITH ME about its condition and how we were going to treat it. I loved that she actually showed me on her computer my scalp and hair follicles, and explained to me all possible reasons for my condition and how to restore it back to health. She was patient and thorough, and let me ask all the questions I wanted, which I really and truly appreciated. She was so friendly, down to earth, made me feel at ease throughout the entire process. I was extremely impressed with her knowledge of hair and that she had created her own hair products that are tailored to the customer – WOW! Not to mention how wonderful it felt on my scalp and smelled in my hair long after my treatment. Also!!! she didn’t take offense when I told her how I didn’t like my hair styled, nor did she try to convince me to go with what she wanted to do!! I can manage my own hair and style it to where I feel comfortable; and I’ve gotten allot of compliments. Kindria is great and you will truly and completely like her. I can’t wait to go back and then show my sisters!”
And there’s this one: “I just left my consultation and OMG!!! My dermatologist didn’t do half of what Mrs. Kindria did today!!!!! Thank you and see you again soon!”
Yes, there’s another gratified client: “If you want someone that’s a cut above the rest, go see Kindria. You won’t be disappointed….”
By and large, Hawkins-Simpson said amongst the biggest reasons she was inspired to return to what she describes as the “beauty industry” is that she, along with others with whom she has crossed paths had endured various forms of hair loss.
Given her immense knowledge and passion in this ever-so-evolving industry, she sensed the time had finally come that she put her remarkable skills on display.
Backed up by that life-changing dream, of course.
“Since coming back to the beauty industry, the one consistent thing I noticed is a significant number of people, including myself, suffering from various forms of hair loss,” Hawkins-Simpson explained. “Concerned with my own hair loss as well as my clients, I began educating myself on hair loss and regrowth solutions.”
To her credit, that ultimately gave way to Hawkins-Simpson having obtained a full fledge certification as a Hair Loss Specialist Certification (HLSC) and Hair Loss Practitioner Certification (HLPC), as well as having garnered national accreditation from the American Medical Certification Association (AMCA).
Talk about a massive, favorable career change for a former Corporate America professional whom, since bolting her rewarding job, has been nothing short of impressive since the night of that career-inspiring, tear-jerking dream.
Come October 30, Hawkins-Simpson and her staff will hold an event called “Sip and Rekindle” at the Meridian Business Center located at 6060 North Central Expressway, Suite 500 in Dallas.
During this event, she will provide attendees with private A scalp scope and hair analysis, a vitamin deficiency Scan A customized solution for their hair, scalp, and body, as well as all-natural customized products available for purchase.

A current resident of the Dallas/Fort Worth area, Hawkins-Simpson earned a Bachelor’s in Business Administration and began a successful career as Regional Human Resources Director.
Consequently, she sensed a career change was in order.
“After 17 years in Corporate America, I hit a crossroad and started questioning my destiny,” Hawkins-Simpson said. “I had a dream and woke up with an unexplained joy. I have come full circle and back to doing what I love.”
The rest, as they say, was history.
