Our Betty of the Week is KeeKee Baker, aka @mrkeebles! He started at @urbanbettysalon in March 2021. KeeKee resides at both salons as our Inventory Manager and graduated in 2014 from Arrojo Cosmetology in NYC.
Fun facts about KeeKee:
✨What did you want to be when you grew up?
I remember in 4th grade, I wanted to be a football player or a carpenter, but as I got older, I simply realized I just wanted to work with my hands.
✨Where are you from?
Dirty Jerz in the house.
✨What do you like to do?
I’ve been heavy into gravel and mountain biking for the past year, and it’s done wonders for both my mind and body. I try to keep active in creative hobbies as well, mainly ceramics and cooking. I also am a plant enthusiast and proud co-momma to over 90 plants in our home.
✨Anything else fun you might think of that makes you unique.
I work part-part time at a woodworking/jewelry studio called “Eastwood” and Art Gallery “Cloud Tree” on the East Side that y’all should definitely check out.
I also keep my hands in hair when I can, mainly through editorial/photoshoot opportunities. I was recently part of a team that won Best Music Video by Austin Chronicle!
Thank you, KeeKee, for bringing your creative spirit into the house of Urban Betty. You make everyone smile, and you have an energy that automatically lifts others when they are around you. #teambetty #urbanbettysalon #urbanbetty
