One may ask “What is London’s Beautii?” London is the name of Darlynda’s daughter and she decided to add the “Beautii” to remind her daughter how beautiful she is every day.
When asked about the meaning of London’s Beautii, Darlynda stated “London's Beautii means a lot to me. It means working in my life purpose and using my gifts daily. I get to bond with and meet different women from all walks of life every single day. They talk to me about their struggles and what they've overcome. I don't take those moments for granted. They share with me their life experiences and we uplift one another”. In addition, Darlynda has an immense passion for creating. Over the years, protective styles were looked upon as being unprofessional, unkempt, being lazy, etc. However, that is a misconception. Darlynda has been able to create protective styles for women of all professions and including providing hairstyles that are worn at weddings, seen on students, busy moms, and more. Protective styles are classy and professional and she is proud to display that outlook through her work. She states “I get satisfaction from my clients when they say "This is exactly what I wanted".
