About Us

Master Hair Weaver Clem LueYat and his Styling Team offer 2 full service hair salons, one in USA and one in the Caribbean.

The USA salon is located in Brooklyn, New York, at 1655 Flatbush Avenue (between Avenues H and I, obliquely opposite Target store). Spacious and accessible, the salon is comprised of nine work stations with a convenient private room for clients requiring special attention. In addition to its owner and hair guru, Clem LueYat, 8 dedicated hairdressers (male and female) are there to deliver the best results in the hair industry.

 

All hairdressers are licensed and have been carefully selected and trained by Clem. Their experience and expertise, from no hair to lots of hair - and no lumps, no bumps - led them to be called The Styling Team. Our Salon Manager is always available to take your call and answer all questions pertaining to hair and hair care products.

About The “Master”

Clem LueYat is a name synonymous with Hair throughout “The world of Hair Dressing”.


Clem’s career in hair took flight at age 13 when he demonstrated his creative ability. He built up a clientele but needed formal training. After completing a hairdressing course in London, England, at age 17, he returned to Port of Spain to open his first hairdressing salon.


In the 1960s Clem provided hairdressing services to the Who’s Who of Trinidad and Tobago, local beauty queen contestants and visiting celebrities; he also did platform work in other West Indian countries, demonstrating hair products represented by Oscar Francois Limited.


It was the late Gospel Singer Mahalia Jackson who, so impressed by his work, advised him that he should be “doing hair” in America.


In 1970, he emigrated to Montreal, Canada. He entered a High Fashion hair styling competition and came in 1st runner up, but after six months relocated to New York, USA and opened up a salon in Brooklyn in the heart of a West Indian neighborhood on Washington Avenue (and later at 1260 Flatbush Avenue).


A Hairdressing business grows by “word of mouth” and, indeed, his clientele grew. At the same time, the largest “black” hair preparation company, Johnson Products of Chicago, hired Clem to demonstrate their products at Hair Shows throughout the USA broadening his horizons in the Hair Industry.


Clem moved from high fashion hairstyles in the Sixties, Jherri Curls in the Seventies, created his own Unique Interlocking Hair Weave System in the Eighties, and then his Wrap Net Weave System for Severe Hair Loss in the Nineties... earning him the title “The Master Hair Weaver of the World”.

 

In the new millennium, many hairstylists have been trained by Clem in his hair weaving and hair styling techniques and, more recently, he has mastered Hair Extensions using micro cylinders without using glue or chemicals. As our population ages, Clem has been paying attention to the needs of the baby-boomer. By offering solutions to hair loss problems from aging or illness.


To enhance his skills as a Hairstylist and a Tutor, Clem has designed tools and equipment to make hairdressing easier. He is about to launch his first instructional DVD in his Hair Extensions Technique and will soon release other instructional DVDs for hair stylists.


Clem has appeared in the leading “Black” hairdressing magazines in the USA and at annual major Hair Shows in the USA and England. Platform work has exposed his skills to other hairstylists who are baffled that an Asian (believing that he is from Korea or Japan) is so versatile in handling all lengths and types of hair for both sexes, and in particular “black hair”. When the questions arise, he explains that he is from Trinidad and Tobago, where the ethnic makeup consists of just about every race, and that he has been “playing” in all types of hair for a long time.


Clem operates a Full Service Salon in Brooklyn with a staff of 10 employees, 7 of whom are Trinidadians and travels the world over, teaching his techniques. While living the American Dream, he maintained his Trinidadian roots and still made time to give back to his country by sharing his expertise with local hairstylists and the Government-sponsored Beauty Culture classes, demonstrating what he does best with future hairstylists.


By sharing his skills, Clem is ensuring that upcoming hairstylists empower themselves to step out of the box and operate as professionals with the client in mind, ready and equipped to handle any technique in hairdressing and beauty culture.


He flies the Trinidad & Tobago flag throughout his travels around the World, and his  Trinbago flavor salon offers the lastest Trini sights and sounds, and news of what’s happening at home. He cooks Trinbago food and is proud to be a Trinbagonian who has “done” winners of Miss Universe and Miss World pageants, Miss New York State, other West Indian beauties, Soca Artistes, US stars and has achieved many heights in his career while making four generations of clients more beautiful.
