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.

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. 

Work shoes

Nikes are one of the best work shoes when your on your feet all day. I wear them even when I have on a skirt at work. The floor is hard the air conditioner is on I can’t afford to wear uncomfortable shoes just to look cute. Your body takes a toll standing all day.

2018 men’s hairstyles 

This is my nephew Emmanuel. I get a kick out of him. He calls me out and puts me in place, I love it coming from him. He’s twenty years old has been around me enough to know me more than I know myself. He had been going to another stylist because he says I don’t listen to him..  LOL..it didn’t bother me..I’m glad he went..the stylist did  his hair pretty good. I don’t like to talk bad about other people’s work.  He came to me yesterday..I bleached his hair then applied the red. He was very happy with it. I did not get to blend his #fadecut like I wanted to since my client showed up and  I needed to start with her. He made an agreement to come at least once a month so that I could touch up his red again.. he was happy indeed. Here’s one of our typical conversations we had yesterday. 

Me: I look ugly today.  

Emmanuel: Ummm Hummm who you tellin..

ROTFL…


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!!😂

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!
