Founder and creator of Glam by Lexx Hair Extension, Lexy Delicata, is a force to be reckoned with in the hair industry in Windsor.
Since a young age, Delicata has always been compelled to be involved in the beauty industry and knew becoming a hair stylist was a natural fit for her. At 18, Delicata completed her education at St. Clair College then immediately jumped into her first job in the industry by working at a local salon.
“I grew up always having a passion for the beauty world and being able to express myself through my creative side,” she shares. “I wanted to be apart of making girls feel more confident and helping them express themselves through their hair.”
However, once Delicata built up her clientele, she started to realize the building frustration many girls were having with their hair and their extensions.
“I was having young girls come into the salon that I worked on and I was realizing how frustrated they were getting with their hair,” she shares. “A lot of them would order products online for their hair and they would also order extensions and I came to the realization that it wasn’t something anyone should be putting in their hair, it was more or so damaging their hair.”
That is when Delicata began her research into how she could provide her clientele with high quality extensions that wouldn’t cause damage.
“My mom and I just started doing our research,” she explains. “We looked into how we could provide girls with good quality extensions that would maintain their hair.”
Since August of 2019, Delicata started up her own extension line and as of this year, she has started her own home business in Lasalle.
“It feels very accomplishing to be able to have my own business only 3 years in this industry,” she says. “It motivates me to keep working hard to reach my ultimate goal of expanding and growing my brand.”
When asked what empowers her, Delicata shared that she knew when she got into the business, she wanted to give it her all.
“I wanted to create a name for myself,” she shares. “It’s thrilling for me to make people feel more confident about themselves by doing their hair the way they imagined it.”
