Before and after

image

She drove all the way from Temecula. .to come get her hair done by me. I feel so flattered! ..I’ve been doing blond on her for ages. She’s been with me since she was like 13. She wanted something  different.  I told Michael  Jackson  said to make that change! And so she decided to go purple. It looks black when your inside a room but when it hits certain  lighting it’s like bam! Grape soda💜

Scooba Doo

Some random lil  girl came into the shop this past Saturday  and told me she found  this wig and gave gave it to me. She told me I could use it on my bald clients. I busted out laughing. .and took it…it reminded me of Shaggy’s hair from Scooby Doo. ..she was very  persistent  and told me to keep it. The other kids that came with her were all laughing and spinning the wig on their  hands like a top…..I can’t use that wig on anyone. .who knows where it’s been.  For all I know this wig might of been used on some crime scene..haha…

Pasadena

image

I have no idea why I look so thin in this picture. I took a drive to Pasadena the last two Wednesday nites, its my escape. It’s clean with cute coffee shops and it has the best taco truck ever!!.  .I don’t know what in the world happened to my appointment book. I spent almost $40 bucks on that thing and it just vanish in thin air. Just like that poof!!..My life is in the book. I book my clients and schedule  all my doctor’s appointments, color formulas phone numbers  and all. Thank goodness  my clientel is so amazingly cool they have all responded to my stressed group  text messages  and let me know when they are supposed  to be coming in. Phew!!. Loosing your appointment  book is enough  to give you a heart attack.

I went to the gym last nite  worked out for about 45 min took a shower and went in my car to try and pray in peace. Well no. That wasn’t going to happen.  I just can’t seem to get two minutes  to just chill and mediate. Here comes the nice security  guard telling me I couldn’t sleep over nite in the parking  lot. Huh? What made you think that? I thought  to myself. He then goes on to tell me sad stories about how many homeless people  in RVS and Mercedes cars  park in the gym parking lot, this epidemic is put out control!! He then tells me he too is homeless. His landlord  ripped $40,000 off the tenant’s rent, he would sometimes  give them receipts  for the  rent and other times he wouldn’t. When the new owners  of the apartment  building  took over they evicted 4 tenants  just like that. Poof be gone!… Wow. ..I don’t understand  wickedness, greed and the justification  of the outrages rent, they are charging for just a studio  $1,200 seriously!!! Greed is spreading like a plague. Bad people  make it hard for honest hardworkers who are trying to get by  in life. Just like the Bible says. Men cannot  direct their own steps. It’s a jungle out here. Count your blessings. Be thankful you have a roof  over your head. Pay your bills on time, keep  all your receipts and make sure you charge your clients  what you are worth. I feel bad for homeless  people. No not all of them are on drugs or alcoholic. Some just were a pay  check away from being homeless, got caught  up by greedy, lanlords, got sick, who knows. There are all million reasons why someone is sleeping  at the gym parking lot over nite in a mercedes. In the meantime I’m having to wake up super early to start my day and figure out who is coming when and trying  to remember  their color  formulas. …I wish I were in Pasadena  now…I love it there! One day I will work my way up to moving  to Old Pasadena. Okay gotta go now and get my coffee  before  my first  client Sheila  arrives. She is loyal to the bone. I may have 99 problem but a awsome clientele  ain’t one. …I needed to rant about the homeless problem. Something I will be discussing all day with my clients. I will  vent about whatever  is bothering me for the next week. My clients and I take a turn releasing our frustrations. Cheaper than paying $150 for a therapist. I wish I had that money  for one.  For now WordPress and my clients  will do…ttyl. .chao👋..(rushes to work )

Michael

image

This is Michael we went to beauty college at Flavios together  in Gardena 29 years ago. I have a special spot in my heart for him. I stopped by the JC  Penneys salon  just now to say hello to my ol coworkers. I worked  at JC Pennys for a short time. Michael and I were just reminiscing our beauty  college  days. I’m sure our teachers are sleeping in death. We had a Japanese  teacher named Miss Amy..who was like 5ft tall. She use to wear big plat form shoes a burnt looking afro perm and would color her hair a brassy orange color with these spider fake lookin eyelashes. She looked like a cartoon. Mrs Brown was older. She use to always tell me over and over again  if your not going to do it right don’t it at all. Profound words of wisdom. I use be so impatient  and keep checking my perm rods right after I saturated the hair with the nasty smelling perm solution.  Can’t  they make those things smell better! LOL…Michael went straight from beauty  college  to JC Pennys. It’s the one and only salon he’s ever worked  at. He’s set  with a good retirement plan and benefits when he leaves. I on the other hand have worked in 9 different  hair salons. Was young  and not too stable.  I could never find the perfect salon that catered to my diversed clientele.  The black salons would be mean  to my white and Hispanic clients. The Hispanic  salons weren’t too friendly to my black and white clients. The white salon  owner named Debra would make my black clients pay first. It was a hot mess! I finally ended in a Chinese  hair salon. No drama  no racial issues just straight up buisness  just like I like it. May the salon owner treats  ALL my clients equal. I’m blessed to have found the perfect spot for me. I wish the whole world would be like  nice like May💛

Unless

image

Unless it’s WordPress 😍 seriously  be careful don’t do it. Think very hard who you are going to vent to its  better not to say too much,  talking to the wrong person  can backfire. 1) They can bring up the conversation in front of others at the wrong place in front of others 2) You will forget what you vented about and they wont. They will resent the person you vented about after you’ve already made the peace with the one you vented about. 3) You don’t want to come off as a Debbie Downer 4) Don’t vent about a guy you like. It will draw attention to him and next thing you know
your friend is super extra  friendly to him. 5) Some people really don’t care about you. They just want to be nosy. 6) Don’t always  trust old ladies. Some aren’t as innocent as they look. They still have feelings and fall for guys 30 years younger than them and will  ruin your  reputation so he won’t get a chance to get to know you. 7) Not all coworkers are cool whatever you tell them in confidence  they will rat you out to your boss if it means your going to get a raise or a higher  position. 8) Some people are like crabs..they will pull you down when the water gets hot.  9) Get a handful of trusted friends and even better if they live out of state. 10) Don’t ask nosy personal questions. The less you know the better.
