Takaya Cunningham Maddox


Takaya Cunningham Maddox is the founder & CEO of Miracles Hair Design and Salon.  She opened Miracles in October 2003 with a physical location in August 2005. The Miracles story began for Takaya at age fifteen when she began styling, in her home, for family members. Her love for hair remained a driving force in her life through high school and college. She attended Alabama A&M University where she received a B.S. degree in Business Management with a minor in Computer Science. Takaya continued styling for friends and fellow students in her dorm room as well as traveling home on the weekends to build a clientele. Her skills earned her dorm room the nickname“Miracles”,  and her salon is still endorsed under the same name today.

After completing her degree, Takaya continued her education in the field of beauty, and is currently a licensed Cosmetology Instructor. Her twenty five years of experience in styling and management has prepared her to be the CEO and Owner of Miracles Hair Design & Salon, Inc. She demands the best from her staff, and encourages their professional development. She aspires to become a better leader and better example. 

Having multiple locations has always been an intricate part of the Miracles vision. Her vision includes, but not limited to salons all over the state and stretching to other states including Atlanta, Georgia, and Texas. That vision became a reality in May 2009, when she opened Miracles Hair Design & Salon of Alabaster located in Shelby County, Alabama. With the desire to serve a growing region with that special Miracles’ touch, we offer the same variety of excellence in hair care services. Although Takaya had to make the difficult decision to temporarily close her Alabaster location in July 2016 she is furthering other entrepreneurial endeavors.  The list includes opening her own Premium Hair Extension line, Miracles Hair Bundles, motivational speaking , business coaching, and celebrity makeup artist.    

Takaya attributes her success to her relentless faith in God. She is the epitome of what perseverance and determination can accomplish when coupled with prayer, vision, and planning. Although her clients inspire her, Takaya is greatly inspired by her family. Her greatest inspiration is her husband, Anthony Maddox.  Together, they aspire to propel Miracles into one of the hair industry's "game - changing " salons.  

The Miracles staff of skilled technicians and stylists share Takaya’s commitment to excellence, customer service, continuing education, and leadership abilities.  At Miracles, we are looking for experienced stylists to work in a great atmosphere.
