Transformations



Hey Blog Fam!


Ever so often I complete a install that I can really really puff my chest out afterwards. I mean a install that makes my husband go WOOOOOWWWW!!! A Sisterlock install that leaves me feeling extremely satisfied. Today is one of those days. I have a client with 7 inches of natural hair. Yay! Right!? Well she has tri color hair with platinum blond, honey blond, and some brown and black roots. You guys may remember my rant about blond hair color if not cared for properly. Man let me tell you...this woman came into my business on Saturday with plaits. When I took the plaits down I was stunned to find all kinds of matted hair. To add to that the ends where the platinum blond was just crumbled in my hands. I asked here if she trusted me and she replied yes. I then went to work. I had to cut some of the mats out that I couldn't pick apart. I also had to add some leave in conditioner to get my fingers through. It took me an hour to just comb through it. Her install took 18 hours with 1.5 hour worth of breaks. I took 10 hours on Saturday and exactly 8 hours today to finish. So I will say it took me about 17 hours of work to finish. Here are some pics... I am so proud

I have been reading your posts old and new and I really enjoy. I can really relate to quite a few of your posts. I too love natural hair and I am constantly seeking and learning new techniques. I also felt you when I read the post about your ex. I had to laugh cause it made me wonder if theres a stupid handbook that some men carry around as a bible. LOL! Also, I am so there on the waste of time and not positive convos. People will drop off and Ive learned to be ok. Dead weight gets heavy. Wishing you and yours much Peace and Blessings!

Really good job, Pers... they look very full considering she lost a lot of dead hair in the process. Yay! I am sure she was pleased with the job.

Question: do you charge extra/more for a job that would take this much longer than a normal install?
