Before and After 

Three hours later before and after tonight. I need to get a chandelier with natural lights. I’m still having the same problem here with the  flourescent lights.  You can’t see the true color. Oh well.

Hot tea

You won’t believe what happened to me this past Monday. I heated water with lots of honey and cinnamon in the microwave. I forgot that I had already reheated it…I took the cup out the microwave and cleaned up some of the water that spilled out the cup..I was rushing to go off to work and took a big chug of the cup. I wasnt paying attention and did not realise how hot the honey was. As soon as I swallowed the big gulp of honey tea I felt like lava was melting my insides. I started coughing and screaming and crying for dear life. I threw myself on the  bed crying in agony. I barfed and was in pain the rest of the day. Tuesday the next day I sleeped in bed all day in misery. It hurts to eat or drink, it feels like a torch turns on every time I place food in my mouth. The next day which was Wednesday I come to work in pain and tell my client what happened. She encourages me to go the doctors and so I did after I was done with her hair.  I went to see my doctor he sent me to Urgent care. I had to get two shots on my buttocks, antibiotics and a numbing medication.  I am on my way to pick up the antibiotics when I’m done typing this. I was placed on a liquid diet and can only eat baby food, soups or gello for the next couple of weeks.  I can’t laugh I can’t sleep..everything I do hurts my esophagus and stomach.  This was by far the worse pain even worse than my surgery last year. I don’t wish this on anyone. The only good thing that will come of this is weight loss. This experience taught me to slow down, take it easy, go to bed early and don’t rush. You can loose your life by not paying attention. I don’t know that I could ever drink teas or coffee again. I have to go back to the doctors in two days. It’s affecting my work performance. I can’t move freely. I’m  tired and exhausted. There is no time to give up now.  I have to many clients this weekened and bills to pay and hair extensions to buyūüėā
Slow down take your time and do it right. Until next time…talk to you laterūüĖĎ

Sew in track extensions 

I do the old school track see in extensions. I did her hair a couple of weeks ago. She gets her own hair at Pauline’s in Bellflower  (they sale the best human hair there) it’s so crazy I went in to go check out their hair yesterday and the have to buzz you in the store. Stealing hair is the new thing.  It gets so expensive. I’ve yet to find a company that sales good quality clip on hair extensions. Real good hair comes in bundles or wefts but not on clipons go figure. My friend here in this picture spends about $300 on a bundle of hair and it will last her forever…I re-use the hair for about a year…before she has to go buy more. It’s worth the price. Unlike me I spend  money every two or three months buying cheap clipons. 

Thank you 

I want to thank each and every single follower on here. I don’t come on here as much as I should. I’m like all over the place between me posting pictures on yelp, facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and at the same time trying to start having a active social life, texting clients back, paying bills,  dealing with flat tires and just life. I dont post my work on Twitter that place is more for celebrity gossip and drama…I like WordPress much betterūüĖ§

Before and after 

Ladies please do not color your hair black then decide you want it light a few months later. Black is difficult to get out..this was the first session..its going to take me a couple of times to get the color the client and I both want.

The audacity 

Things are slowly changing for me as far as my codependent attitude of charging low prices. Folks want to come up in here like it’s the 70s and pay cheap prices. I quoted a regular client  $50 for her color roots, mind you color roots go anywhere from  $65-$100. I color her roots then she decides she wants me to cut her hair which I end up doing. Once I’m done coloring, cutting and styling I tell her it’s  $85…she blurted out “Oh! I thought you quoted me  $50!! …Do you honestly think you are going to pimp me again and not catch on that I just gave you hair cut!!…I walk her to the front door and notice her brand new Mercedes Benz!! She lives at home and doesn’t pay rent.  I’m livid at myself for letting folks get by with murder. I’m doing  $300 jobs for  $85?  No more.  I’m NOT only going to raise her prices I’m going stop making appointments for her. The welfare department is out of buisness starting 2018.

Thank you 

I want to thank each and everyone of my followers. I’m a little annoyed I just posted a long paragraph and just like that poof!! It disappeared!! I can’t even find it in my drafts.  That is the one thing that bothers me about posting here… Ugh. ..anyhoo..again thank you..I want to type more but who knows if my post is going to disappear like Houdini.
