Sparks graduated from Voorhees College in 2013 with a bachelor’s degree in biology with a minor in chemistry. She also earned a cosmetology license from Gwinnett Technical College.
Currently, Sparks is a Cosmetologist based out of Fayetteville, Ga. She owns her own hair service called OnGo. OnGOMovement was originally established as a company for hair services but has grown to house the OnGO Luxury Hair Collection, OnGO Fashion Collection, the OnGO Scholarship, as well as other spontaneous acts of outreach and kindness.
Sparks continually uses both her degree and license to study products and their ingredients to determine the effects on the skin and hair. She said her ultimate goal is to develop her own product line that satisfies the thirst of dry hair, enhances the stability of healthy hair, and normalizes skin tone, elasticity and skin health.
