Usher 

The talk at the shop this week is Usher.  People are coming up 5 years later after being with him that he gave them herpes. One of the girls suing says she tested negative. I was believing the girl’s story first until I got fixated watching the TMZ videos.  I did research on herpes and it says it takes up to 20 after you’ve been infected to get an outbreak. How can you sue someone 5 years later? I’m sure she’s been with more people since then. This is when I thank God that I’m not famous. I can’t imagine what he’s going through.  People will sale their soul to Satan just to be able to sue someone for money.

Survivors 

Let me tell you remember last year when I disappeared and I didn’t blog. Well I was in survivor mode. I was homeless in my car for two months. Steve Jobs, Harvey and Carmen Electra were homeless too at one time in their lives.  I don’t feel like a victim I feel  humbled and very greatful for ALL that I have. I won’t go into details on how I ended in the streets..it’s too long of a twisted story. At the time I was sick..I had cancer in the lining of my uterus but I still managed to come to work make my clients laugh and smiled like I always do. I didn’t miss my Christian meetings I missed 3 times the most. I did my makeup, payed bills etc. Some people knew others didn’t. Sometimes I would sneak a load of laundry in the back room at work and my coworkers would find a missing sock and ask me if it was mine ..LOL.  I would just smile and say “Oh! And  grab the sock and stick it in my purse. I would take showers at the gym, do my makeup at Sephora or mac. I was very tired from the lack of sleep. It’s not comfortable sleeping in a small Ford Focus…I knew Jehovah wasn’t going to leave me in the streets forever..I prayed, I cried, I was angry..but at the end he came through for me like he always does.. my childhood friend took me in and left me her apartment fully  furnished, clean, good hot water,comfortable bed. I can’t ask for anything more. I tell my story now because I survived the storm. I look at how pretty Carmen Electra is, how funny and successful Steve Harvey is and all that Jobs accomplished and I’m in awe. You see its not what happens to us but how thankful we are when our circumstances change. Are we going to make the best of it and keep pushing forward towards our dream or are we going to give up? The choice is yours. Be be very thankful for ALL that you have you never know when your coworkers are going to find your socks in the lunchroom 😊😇🤗

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…

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

image

Stuff my clients  and I talk about. Mostly celebrity gossip second relationships. I’m a underpaid  therapist. ..haha…
everyone  wants love but it’s how you go about it. If you keep doing the same thing  expecting different  results. You know the rest ☺…try and conquer yourself by pushing your emotions to the side and take care of you. Notice how your life is fine intil you start catching feelings for someone then you loose yourself. You can’t think straight.  You get brain freezes..you over analize, ..etc..your focuss is all about them.  A dear loved one just got his heart broken like 3 times in the last two years. I try  to explain to him that you can’t show too much too soon. Always telling her he loves her. Flowers, candy, stuffed animals.  Whenever  they talk on the phone she’s always finding fault in him. I try and tell him till I’m black and blue that she’s using him to stroke her ego. Of course. He tells me I don’t know what I’m talking about.  Please  I do know what I’m talking   about. Broken  hearts is  my  rodeo..it doesn’t matter the color the gender it’s a fact that that more you call, text,  and show too much interest something  in the other person’s brain clicks and it tells them that they are all that and a bag of chips. There is NOTHING wrong with showing that there is potential  and that you are interested. What’s wrong is to keep doing  more than you should when they are not responding. It makes you look weak  in desperate even though  you are not. I actually think that the one who opens their heart is the bravest. Weak are the ones running  from  a  good person.  Use balance judgment before you loose your dignity. Dignity and self respect  is all you have. If you don’t have that you have nothing.

Gray hair

image

Got some new clipons last week and the hair looks Gray in certain  lighting. I’m not complaining since Gray silver  hair is the new thing. I lost $100 bucks when I went to store and the guy sold me hair to sew on. I wanted to exchange it for clips on and we wouldn’t  exchange the hair. I’ve been going to him for 15 years. He talked me into getting some snap on clips to place on the hair he sold  me. It was pure disaster!!  Now I have this extra hair that doesn’t match me. I had to go to the hood and buy hair. As I don’t think I will be buying from Samson’s Hair Goods anymore.   I am no longer doing hair extensions  for clients. Got tired of getting  pimped and loosing $$ and
hours of my time. My sister says she likes the new me.😂😂😂 anyhoo..my mom came to the rescue and gave me money to buy new hair…I gotta pay her back today for the new silver hair on my head…it’s been a two crazy weeks of disappointments with other dilemmas with my doctor who has me drive all the way to LA from Torrance  and then she doesn’t show up. She’s done it twice in a row. California traffic is torture. I just got in my car and cried. Oh well. Such as life. I’m having a #kanyewestrant today. #salontalk. ..gotta go now👋😣😃

Cinderella

Loving my Cinderella shoes. Ladies take care of your feet. You might have a tortilla behind,  a big nose, tiny lips or unruly  hair. But  let me tell you. Your feet says a lot about you. They don’t have to be perfect  but at least give them some love. Go get a pedi. It says a lot about you. I’ve talked to many male friends and they’ve told me their secret thoughts on ladie’s  feet. Some guys just don’t care that you have caveman  feet. But those that do take notice. I started paying attention  to my feet when one day my brother at the time was 12 and I 14 years old. I remember  a vivid conversation  we had outside the house in Gardena  where we lived. He told me that it did not matter how pretty  a girl was but if he looked down at her feet and they were crusty  dry with chipped polished that it grossed him out. Mind you  he was 12 at the time. I remember  thinking  to myself  if he’s a kid what do grown men think about crusty feet!!..LOL….

Thelma and Luise

Daisy and I yesterday at Del Amo Mall.  We were playing with makeup ..she’s an amazing barber I don’t understand  why she isn’t  promoting her work on instagram. She is my friend I met at a hair salon in Jersey  when I was 20 years old. Yesterday we talked like time never passed. She’s the older sister I’ve always wanted. She became a witness when I left Jersey. We  have a tighter bond cause now we are sisters  in faith. We shared beauty  tips yesterday and encouraged each other spiritualy. Did I tell you she survived 3rd degree burns. She was in the hospital for weeks. . She painted her nails then went to try and turn on the stove. When the stove finally came on she caught on fire because  of her nail polish!!!!..The last time I saw her 3 years ago she looked burnt. Amazingly the miracle of coco butter she looks good. She rubs coco butter daily on her scars. You could never tell she almost died. I appreciate  my friendship with her.  We were  talking  about her moving to Cali and working together  again like we did 25 years ago. Now that would be too good  to be true.  We are the OG Thelma and Luise….except  now we can’t run as fast cause we both have arthritis 😁😁😁😂

New Jersey

This is Daisy I met her like 25 years ago in a hair salon in Jersey, we hit it off right away. I went on vacation back east and ended up staying 4 months even got job at a hairsalon. We worked  together  for like a week. The owner  of the salon did not want Daisy and I talk to each  other so weird. She didn’t want us to communicate.  Well it just made our friendship tight. We both ended up quitting after about a week. I was going  to stay and live in Jersey until one day a family  member took me to a strange house party. I ended getting  slapped (hard) 3 times by a demonized woman who does  brujeria aka witchcraft…I thought to myself that is NOT how we party in Cali!! The ladie’s son was so embarrassed and kept apologizing for his crazy mother. He told me she gets the spirits on fridays. She had a tranced cold evil look  .you could feel her negative vibe..I remember  I screamed and ran out  the party when I found out  about her being a witchypoo. I called my mom from a phone booth and begged her to get me a one way to ticket back home. Daisy and I kept in touch for the first couple of years…then we lost contact for like 13 years. I found  her on facebook 3 years ago.  She came to visit me yesterday  and I gave her color job. I’m flattered that she will be flying out for her highlites. I don’t know if it’s a east coast  thing to wear the hair so black. Thats fine when your a young spring  chicken but not when your in your 40s or 50s..it makes you look hard. This was her first session. .I will make her blonder with each one of her visits.. there is so much to blog about our friendship but I’m getting  hungry now. Can’t wait for my mom’s cleaning  lady to go home so I can eat in peace. She gets offended when we eat. Isn’t that something. Some people 😃
