I had an interview with Home Depot for a position in their corporate offices in Atlanta on 12/15/05. While preparing myself for the interview my coworker asked. "what are you going to do with your hair?" I said that I was going to wear it as I usually do. She tried to make up for it and say, "and you'll be fine, it'll look nice". It was too late for me though, she had already put her foot in her mouth. You know what I did. I went to that interview, with a braidset in my SL's, which is my everyday style. I had my business suit on, briefcase in hand and landed that position.

I got the call yesterday that they were offering me the job making 12,000 more than I currently make with a 5K signing bonus. Yes, I am ATL bound.

So, for all of you Atlantians, give me a call for all of your SL needs. Be it from products, initial locking session to retightenings.

Good for you! I don't know what people think S/L's are, IT'S HAIR! It's a hairstyle! Not something that is just hanging there out of place on your head. Of course you got it!! CONGRATS!!!

Congrats, you will absolutely love working for The Home Depot (I did a little consulting with them a few years ago:-). It's a great place to work.

I dont know, where your blog has been? I'm sorry, I am just getting to know it! But I still am going to give you, your delayed props on landing that job and being apart of the Sisterlock industry, keeping our sistahs and brothas beautifully natural!


That is great and enjoy your new job. I am from the Stone Mountain and I love the ATL and you will too. Take care and God Bless.
