Courtney Davis Walker, a former financial analyst, who’s desire for hairstyling since the tender age of 15, lead her to take a different path to becoming an educator with Farouk Systems Inc.
Originally from Atlanta, GA, raised in Ellenwood, GA, she began her pursuit by enrolling in her high school work-based learning program where she attended classes in the morning and worked in a salon in the afternoons.
Courtney proceeded to college, earning a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Alabama A&M University and a Master of Business Administration from Keller Graduate School of Management. However, her love for hair did not waiver. She later attended Atlanta Area Technical School, where she obtained a diploma in Cosmetology with a Master Cosmetologist certification and a Certified Master Cosmetology Instructor.
Courtney joined the Farouk Family in 2007. She began as a teammate educator under the tutelage of DeeDee Pierrin, where she was promoted to a Certified Specialist educator in just six months. In 2015, Courtney became a Certified Master Specialist tech artist. She is known for her short iconic styles, blazing coloring techniques and helping her clients to rock their styles with a classic and sophisticated look.
Outside of Farouk, Courtney teaches Cosmetology for Dekalb County Schools in Atlanta, Ga. She is currently the owner of So Couture Hair Extensions, while still serving clients in a boutique salon studio setting.
