My Ma! - The Queen

My Ma! – The Queen

Volume 38: My Ma

Hey yall hey! – Let’s jump right in. Aside from my twin sissy, there is another lady of my life that enjoys my services for free and that’s my mom. My golden-haired goddess. My Queen. I began styling her hair permanently around my last couple years of high school. Braids, weaves, color, twists, experiments – we have been through it all! She trust me to make her beautiful – I love that (even though at times she can be hard to please 😛 ). She keeps me on my toes and it works. Having her in my client chair is our time to bond and I would not have it any other way. She has supported me and my dreams of hair styling since it’s inception and I could not ask for a better mother. She never misses an opportunity to shout me out and spread the word. It is because of her that I have gotten quite a few clients – she is my walking hair mannequin and a talking machine! Such a diva – yea, I get it from her. Thank you mother dear – you’re the best lady!

She got long kinky twists last night and I can not wait to see what she does with them!

Peace!

Volume 37: It’s All Love

Hey hey!

I think that I need to clear the air about something. When in conversation with someone, friend, boyfriend, co-worker, my boss, strangers, anyone!, I have a habit of looking up at their hair, while we talk, instead of their face. Now this isn’t happening during the entire conversation but definitely long enough for the recipient to notice and possibly become self conscious and for THAT, I am apologetic. This happened today, sorry Victoria! ❤ Once I see that hand go up and start patting semi-frantically, I should probably interject. It’s not you (___fill in name__), its me.

It’s not that I have noticed a problem that I’m subliminally calling your attention to, I am just obsessed with hair! My eyes are perpetually drawn upward and I’m just checking you out. 😉 Am I the only one doing this??? I’m noticing your cut, the mingling of colors, your layers, your curl pattern, the technique, the length, etc. But, because all of this generally goes unstated, I am working on it, pinky promise. 🙂 Eye contact during conversation is important yall. Whew! got that off my chest. I hope your days have been beautiful.

Peace!

Volume 36: Product Alert!

Biotin & Collagen

Biotin & Collagen

Keratin Oil

Keratin Oil

Hey hey!

Definitely had a case of the Mondays earlier this morning but I made it and now we are here. 🙂


Last Sunday, while in the chair of stylist Toni Fairley, I was told that my hair was a bit fragile in some areas. Being that I am a permanent resident of Healthy Hair Ave., this was hard to hear but it helps to hear it from a pro. Alas, this issue is fixable and it seems that I have found a remedy — Ogranix Beauty Pure & Simple. I recently purchased both their Biotin & Collagen and Keratin Oil products. After one wash, I can already see/feel the difference. The keratin boost in my strands is needed at all times and the biotin and collagen promotes nutrients and protein strength for thick hair on top of that. Plus, it smells awesooome. I will be continuing to use this product and I surely recommend it!

Peace!

Volume 35: Good-bye Summer…Welcome Fall!

Thomas Wedding 9.7.14 Bridal Party Glam Time!

Thomas Wedding 9.7.14
Bridal Party Glam Time!

My goodness time waits for no man – we’ve made it through the summer and fall is upon us. Easily one of my favorite seasons for fashion purposes but also for hair hue/length changes! It’s around this time that most of us ladies decide to go darker and longer. Very exciting times in the land. Ditch those summer styles and transition into your fabulous fall looks! – I am happy to help. 🙂  

Now to a couple honorable mentions:

My family brought in fall with a wedding! My cousin Marcus married Dawn Black yesterday and I gained a beautiful new cousin – see images. It was quite possibly one of the greatest days of my year, yet.

Now onto the glam team for the wedding! Yesterday, the bridal party had the pleasure of being styled by Raedawn Johnson (google her baby!), makeup and Toni Fairley and Mr. Chris Curse himself!, hair. All three are super accomplished and beautiful people with amazing spirits. It felt so good to have someone else’s hand in my head. After my hair was done, I snatched the opportunity to shadow Toni and Chris while they styled the other ladies. They explained their techniques and detailed the “why” behind each move. I soaked up every word they said. One word- invaluable. Our hair was laid and our mugs were beat! It was awesome.
