I’m back

Sorry I’v been neglecting my blog.I got caught trying to catch up with life and trying to take care of my health. I have extreme fatigue. This past week I’ve been falling asleep in my car when I’m off work and I dont wake up till 2 or 3 in the morning. I dont know if I’m burnt out from all that car drama I had going on and switching shops. On the positive side I went on my first real date.My first proper date…I had the best week of my life. I was running away from this person he had been trying for the longest time to get me to get to know him. Funny how women are (me) I didnt notice him until I saw a picture of him on his facebook wall with a lady friend..LOL..all of a sudden he became interesting.We met for mexican food. I had to wait an hour for him to get there..he was stuck in traffic visiting from Hawaii. I had prayed the nite before and same day we met that the man for me would buy me flowers, as I sat there eating chips and salsa I looked up and he’s walking in with a bouquet of flowers!! I got up from the table and ran to him like a bachelorette contestant. We hugged like we knew each other for many years. We talked and talked and ate and talk. I will tell you more about it later. I’m taking a facebook break. I am on a project of disciplining my emotions. I dont want to start blowing up his cell with text or calls. I want my experience with him to marinate and go with the flow…to be continued….

Yes indeed 

This is a true fact. I just want to blog and speak with my  three friends. Think twice before you express yourself to people who don’t  know you or are envious of you. It can backfire 360 degrees. Learn from your mistakes and work very hard at not repeating them.

Michael

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.

Tales of the chair

image

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.☺

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
