Cheryll Hosey and Michael Martin own and operate IMB (It’s My Business) Hair Braiding Gallery in Youngstown, Ohio. Cheryll learned to braid as a child and has braided for over 18 years. Michael performs consultations and does dreadlocking.

Cheryll and Michael have a long history of community involvement. They bring that commitment to IMB as well. IMB serves a nearby nursing home, Gateway for Better Living, providing natural hair care for African-American residents, whose hair had been damaged by chemical processing. Cheryll also volunteers through her county’s Human Services agency to braid children’s hair.
