Tales of the chair

It’s been a loooooooong  time. Sorry I haven’t been posting I’ve been  venting to my friends instead. I like how we end up laughing our heads off at by the end of the conversation. Client is sitting  with her color. We were just discussing Sonia  Risken. She was a hairstylist  who had two of her husbands killedfor insurance  money. She had a shop in the next city over named Lomita. Google her. This is the stuff that movies  are made of. One of my coworkers use to work in her salon.  First of all killing your spouse  for five thousand  dollars is ludicrous. Number two are you nuts!! There is not enough to money in the world to be going around killing people. Heck if you were short on money open a instagram account  and hustle and network there.  Anyhoo..Sonia ended getting shot by her nephew. I take it she owed him money for the hit he did on her last hubby. So  sad indeed. Suffering is worse than death. She caused a lot of pain to her ex in laws who have to mourn for rest of their lives. ….

I colored my hair a black violet color today. It was time to change my whole attitude.  Behind every dramatic color change or hair cut there is an emotional  change or growth. Not for everyone  but for some of us.
I went through one of the craziest, saddest unexpected change this month. Thank goodness  today this month is over. I don’t want to remember it or relive it. Well time is up! I gotta rinse my client’s hair color now. Chao!

Salon talk

Sorry I’ve been soooooooo busy trying to catch my breath with life. So much to say so little time to post..one thing I learned this month you don’t always have to go back and deal with a messy person who’s trying  to sabotage  you. Don’t waste your time texting, calling or even asking  why they’ve been so horrible to you.
Let it go. I had a hard time accepting that thought but trust me. It’s worth it. If someone does you wrong stay focused  and look ahead. Keep walking towards your dreams…every time you turn around to confront, ask, or try to fix a situation  with a sociopath you feel dirty  for lowering  yourself  to them. It takes weeks to get that nasty feeling out. It’s not worth  it. Remember  stay focused don’t look back.‚ėļ

Found these powerful words from someone’s wall on instagram. These  words are profound. I was done evil this week. In the past I would of held a grudge like an elephant. Thanks to my daily Bible reading and prayers I have managed to survive the ax in my back from someone whom I thought was my friend. The Bible says that jealousy and envy is earthly, animalistic and demonic. Those words cannot be any truer than that. I forgive even after they hurt my mother in the process of their wicked acts. I have a family, good friends and amazing clients that have been giving me nothing but love and support this week. The story is too INSANE to type up but good enough  to make me thankful everyday that I’m NOT that person.  My mother is not bouncing back as fast as I would hope.. she’s fallen into depression and doesn’t  want to stick her head out the covers. A bouquet of flowers will take care of that.ūüíĚūüĆľ.  Flowers for the Madre.

Black nails

image

My signature¬† black nails. It works for me because¬† it doesn’t¬† matter if I wear gloves my nails always get stained with hair color This way you can’t tell.¬† I try to be creative and have Jimmy do designs or I ask him to use glitter polish on some of the nails to give it a lil spark.¬† I get about 3 fills out of set then I take them off and get a new set about every two months or so. Did I tell you how I went to the bank on Friday and the bank clerk asked me if I was a hairstylist. I asked her why she said “The way you looked¬† at my hair.¬† Wow! She’s good. “How did I look at your hair she said “Stylists look at hair in a way that cannot be explained. I then went on to commend her stylist for doing a awsome job on her hair color. She told me she pays her $100 bucks for a root touch up. There is something¬† wrong with¬† my prices..LOL!…

Purple

image

My client  was inspired to get purple highlites today because she misses Prince. You know I don’t think there will be another genius like him in my lifetime. The man played 27 instruments.  Why wasn’t this discussed when he was alive. I don’t remember  ever hearing that. Today was more like a trial thing. To see how good her hair would take. She loved it so much  she wants to get more purple the next time  she comes in. Today was a good day except earlier in the day I had dilemma  with another client. I never get her hair exactly  the way she wants it. She’s nice but there is  something  about her INTENSE  personality that blocks my rhythm, there is always a minor complaint. .. (sighs)
For some strange reason the topic of racism kept coming up with different  clients today . People  are getting sick and tired of the oh me oh my,  stop picking on me because of my color. This life isn’t fair. Stop stirring  the pot. There is good and bad in all races. Don’t hate a race because what someone did to you 26 years ago. Life is too short. Drink your water daily and mind your business  who cares who is dating who and why is he going  out with Becky with the  good hair.  Heck get a good wig from @Tokyostyles on instagram and go to Switzerland. There is someone  out there for everyone focus on yourself and work on your inner  beauty. The right man will come along when you stop hating  on others. #forreal

Transformation

This is LIL Kim. She use to be a famous black Rapper amazing what money can do. I have mixed emotions about her new white look. I mean she does  look cute in a strange  way to me. I remember when she was a pretty brown. I’m not against fixing yourself but going to this extreme and trying to become a whole different  nationality is a cry for mental therapy.
