Most days you can find him using his skills to create stunning looks for his hair clients at Style Me Riche’ salon in Columbia, South Carolina. While working his hair magic, clients might hear his melodious voice humming everything from India Arie to Luther Vandross while receiving advice on what to wear at their next event.

Award-winning stylist, Travis Douglas migrated from the small town of Society Hill, South Carolina to Columbia, South Carolina where he attended the Kenneth Shuler School of Cosmetology. His love for his craft combined with his competitive nature inspired him to not only participate, but also win many style competitions.

To his credit, Travis has won the "Golden Scissors Awards, Washington D.C."; "The Hair in Motion Competition, Chesapeake Virginia"; also the "Who's Got Flavor Hair Battle, with the style trio team T.R.D., Columbia, South Carolina".

In 2017, Travis was selected to sing on a four-week tour in Italy with the Benedict College Gospel Choir.
