Sparkle Hyche started working at the age of eight.
She was born in New Jersey, where she found her passion for glam at the age of eight. Hyche began sewing outfits for her Barbies and family members at an early age, and her work was so outstanding that at the age of 11, she was employed to sew clothes and do make-up on other church members. She started styling celebrities for independent films and music videos in 2008. Hyche was the CEO and Creative Director of S.H.E. Brand Sparkle Hyche Enterprises, a make-up brand that focuses on “the lifestyle, mind, body, and soul of a woman, via materials and products,” in addition to Salon 422.
Sparkle Hyche formerly had another salon named Static Salon and worked for Regis Corporation as a “Master Cosmetologist and Extension Expert.” She has worked with some of the biggest stars in her profession, and her talents can be seen on series like Atlanta Dream and Married to Medicine. Hyche has also worked with gold medalist in track and field Francena McCorory. She was named a Woman of Power and Influence by Atlanta Magazine, a Phat Girl Fresh Lifestyle Honoree, and appeared on the cover of Glambitious Magazine in 2015. Sparkle devotes a significant amount of time to Susan G. Komen, the Atlanta Children’s Shelter, the L.E.A.P Mentor Program, and the American Cancer Society.
In 2012, she released a book titled Maintaining Your Weave. Many “wet and dry style” methods for hair extensions and natural hair were featured in the book. Sparkle Hyche never dated a young guy and divorced when she was 24 years old. She raised her kid as a single mother while relocating from New Jersey to Atlanta.
