Yetta Yvette

Yetta Yvette is an Author, Entrepreneur, Licensed Cosmetologist and Model. It might be true that Yetta is a bit of a workaholic, but she's more than just that.

Such as writing, dancing, styling, traveling, fitness workouts and going out with family and closet friends.

Life and Career

Yetta was born in Shreveport, Louisiana. She migrated to California and later attended Hollywood High Performing Arts School. The art of Make-up caught her interest. She took up Cosmetology at Flavio Beauty College and eventually passed her licensure exam in 1994. Aside from her successful career as a Licensed Cosmetologist and model, she indulged into writing. She was a good writer in her college years and took up English classes to perfect her craft. She loves writing based on true stories or inspired by events. Where people are challenged and are able to overcome their obstacles in life. "Age Ain't Nothing but a Number" is a Memoir based on a true story of her life. As a nonficition writer, Yetta believes that it's not about the number of pages in a book, but rather the quality and the words that will impact one's life.
