SERENITY IMAGE CONSULTING

True life, True Image, True Spirit

Hello  I’m Tonise Gardner a native of Savannah, GA and a mother of one daughter Nailyah Gardner.     I spent countless years surrounded around beauty and art.

 At age 19 I co-owned my first salon. By the age of 25 I have co-owned two more salons until   I relocated to Charlotte, NC,  After 4 years of building a clientele base of over 300 repeating customers Serenity Image Consulting was born.  A business designed to enhance a women’s full image.  I worked with fashion designers, makeup artist and other hairstylist to ensure the consumer's entire image had a makeover.  The salon morphed into addressing the inner aspect of beauty oppose to just the outer.  Now, SIC is holistic salon where the client can feel safe to share their stories and are inspired and motivated to step into their true authentic selves.

My motto is “True Life, True Image, True Image” something I choose to continuously evolve in my life.  In 2006 I join Charlotte NC Fashion Week to help coordinate and run the backstage production along with coaching the runway models.  I’m a lover of the arts of creative writing, singing, acting and have performed in countless festivals, churches, weddings and plays like “Walk In My Shoes” and The First Lady”.  I decided that more artist regardless of their expression should have a platform to showcase their talent so I created  N'RICH THE SOUL a production  infused with the artssuch as poetry, acting, singing, dancing and motivational speaking.

 The event is held during Domestic Violence month which is dear to my heart because of my own experience in a domestic violent relationship.  N’RICH THE SOUL has morphed into blogs, meetups, day camps of performing arts and my purpose is to motivate and inspire people through my own life experiences.

 “My prayer is for me to decrease the ego and allow the essence of my spirit to inspire your life”

Hello.  I’m Tonise Gardner a native of Savannah, GA and a mother of one daughter Nailyah Gardner.  I spent countless years surrounded around beauty and art. 

 At age 19, I co-owned my first salon Too Groovy Hair Productions and at  age 25 I experienced a traumatizing relationship of domestic abuse; something I stated I would never experience.  The seed was implanted and I attracted a man who said he loved me in 3 weeks and soon after emotionally, mentally and physically abused me for 3 and half years.  Once I awakened from that sleep I was two weeks pregnant   embarrassed and depressed.  Along with my cousins and mother, I was  rescued from a situation that could have ended my life. 

Shortly after my daughter's birth, I relocated to Charlotte, NC and  attracted a  clientele of 300 repeating customers,  Serenity Image Consulting Salon was born after 4 years.  A business designed to enhance  a women’s self-esteem,  self-worth and her entire image.   Now, SIC is holistic consulting salon where the client can feel safe to share their stories and are inspired and motivated to step into their true authentic selves.

 The event was showcased in 2011 and 2012 at the Little Rock Community Center (the old Afro American culture center) during Domestic Violence month.  N’RICH THE SOUL has morphed into blogs, meetups, and performing arts.   My purpose is to motivate and inspire people through my own life experiences.
