Got to love repeat business!

Made this last year now she is back for more!  She make my heart smile. I have one customer get a tone because asked for my money.  I had to ask for my money. When I worked at Winn Dixie and Walmart I was told it takes 5 good customers to make up for 1 bad one.
Good clients bad clients all apart of the process. Blessed just to have a client.

Much better

I like my hair much better today. Last night I wore a head wrap to bed added a few more Bobby pins this morning and the style is much more tapered. I plan on repeating this style next week.

My faux tapered look


I used the above video to achieve this look I think it is so so. This is actually day two. I did flat twists in the front and bantu knots for the rest might be why it is so so.

More print mixing
