Comb twist coils

I did my cousin’s son’s hair yesterday..he was sporting a short afro but wanted something fresh and different. I sprayed warm water with a little bit of hair conditioner and  avocado oil…I also used hair pomade and that hard cement gel called (Got 2 be glued)…I sprayed his hair with the warm water bottle and took small sections of his hair and twisted his hair into coil twists. It was very important for me to see his hair looking shinny and smooth there is nothing sadder looking than dry brittle broom looking hair. I know it’s the style but I can’t have my clients walking around like a crusty brillo pad. …..anyhoo it was so good to see DJ…he’s grown into a mature nice gentleman. His  rap album is dropping on January 16th. He’s a good rapper just a little concerned with all the foul language. I’m sure the radio is going to edit it. Funny how his music is not representing his kind gentle side..I guess you have to face and cave in into what the kids are into nowadays, trap music.  None the less I’m hoping him and Drake can do a song together..a cute song about how they think ladies are queens and we deserve  to be treated like crystal glass ….is that too mushy?🤣

If you are into trap music you can follow my adorable DJ’S Instagram page at @vince_2turnt or check him out at Sound Cloud.  I can’t get into the new music but I can support my family’s dreams💜🖤

Ps) The name of the album is Black Out.

Men’s fade cut.

I want to eventually transition myself to doing more barbering work. It’s less wear and tare on the body than dealing with long thick hair. I faded my brother in law today. He’s a perfectionist and so when he said I did good on his fade I was like “Phew!!😂

Black nails

I’m feeling my black nails just got them done yesterday..always do something nice for yourself. Now that I have my own salon studio I have to get my nails done. I’m no longer working under someone else’s buisness. I now own Evy’s Hairstyles..I’m representing myself. Men and women notice the little things you do. Keep up with your appearances even if Satan is putting you through the ringer. We don’t have to look bad just because we are going through a trial. 

Angled Bob haircut

This is Julie. I had  to recut her hair on Saturday. I left it choppy a few days before..I was running behind and rushed her. I could feel the piercing glances through the mirror from my next client who was waiting in the lobby area. Energy speaks louder than words. Funny Julie was playing on her cell and she too could feel the negative vibrations.  You can’t squeeze every in..some clients want ALL your attention and get jealous if you spend to much time on someone else. 
I colored and cut Julie’s hair…her hair is resistant and pulls a lot of red. I’ve been controlling her red tones by doing low lights. I use a level 7 ash and do bleach highlites as well. And here you have the finish look tada!

So inspired 

This is Phillip he’s a famous Instagram hairstylist who does models and actresses. My dream was to have the chance to work with him two years ago when I met him at the supply store. My dreams came true. I even got to cut his hair twice and he loved it. He tells me that I’m a good hairstylist.  He was kind enough to teach me some hair tricks and share his secret formulas with me. I mean who does that!!..Some hairstylist can be so petty. Not him. He inspired me to raise my prices, what I charge he charges tripple..Ive been selling myself short for so many years. The girls at Solas Salons work half the time that I do and they are driving in name brand baller cars taking vacations while I’m over here overworked burned out killing my body. One painful lesson I’m learning is that charging cheap prices because you feel sorry for people when they tell you pitiful stories of how broke they are does not guarantee loyalty. They will drop kick you and leave you for someone else in a hot minute. I’ve been doing hair for 30 years I think its time I start spoiling myself with vacation, houses and diamonds.  Not only are we hairstylists we are straight up counselors, therapists and everything else. My studio has become a congressional.  As soon as I tell people that my glass slidding doors are sound proof  I get dumped on😂….
Be careful how you speak the choice in words you use about yourself. You can sabotage your dreams by lacking self worth. Force yourself to think positive don’t be a envious hater be good to others and forgive..then you will see life bring good vibrations in your life. Phillip left Solas and opened his own salon, his last day was Saturday. I was so sad. He’s so amazingly humble and adorable. He left me with the fire to better myself to think highly and to not settle for less than I deserve.

Before and after hair color

It took 3 hours to get it like this.  It’s a lot of work. This is $200 job but she gave me $140..I.told her  $150 but she was short on cash. I’m following my first gut instinct to charge what the job is worth instead of charging cheap and then walking around all resentful. Charge your worth. At the end of the day if you are late to an appointment they will drop kick you and go somewhere else.


I just did this before and after makeover on my friend..I’ve always wanted to do more makeup but it’s so expensive and tedious…the reward is worth it when you see the big smile on the client’s face.😍


My client Katherine custom designed this t-shirt for me. I love it..shes designing t-shirts as a hobby and  is going to donate the money to charities one of them to cancer research. Isn’t that awsome…  .you would think with all that money they collected after all these years they would of found a cure by now. How is that money really being spent? Hummm…
