Our Founder

For more than 20 years, Sunshine has worked in New York City as a celebrity hair stylist. With clients including Kelly Rowland, Melanie Fiona, Kashdoll & Andrea Lewis, she would often use hair pins and other hair accessories to create memorable looks that appear on the grammy red carpet or at the MTV award show. 

After the birth of her son, Sunshine embarked on a spiritual journey as her desire to have a greater impact on the world grew. Ignited by a backpacking trip through Africa with her 4- year-old,Sunshine's was clear her purpose was to inspire women to express their powerful nature. 

Sunshine, inspired by earth's element of pearl and gold encapsulates these influences & expresses it through hair accessories giving birth Sanctioned By Gods.

Sanctioned By Gods™

Every woman is born with the attributes necessary to be exactly who she was designed to be. Life experiences and worldly standards cause us to abandon who we are for what's considered acceptable for the comfort of others. Every woman has to decide when she will shed her old skin & transform into her truest self. The moment she does, she becomes the most powerful, the most beautiful, and the most feared creature walking this earth;

Founded in 2022, Sunshine's handcrafted headbands and hair accessories, offer an exhilarating experience to spark this synergistic energy that brings her pieces to life. Produced by global artisans, balance is captured with pearl, gold, colorful crystals, and seasonal textiles reminiscent of earth's elements.

To be sanctioned, is to be granted official permission or punishment. Through Sanctioned By Gods, we hope to accentuate the beautiful power women exude by living a liberated life no matter the consequence. This quintessential intersection of global inspirations reveals your most rebellious nature.

Rebellious is our legacy.
