Mrs. Pat 's Follow Up Visit

Mrs. Pat came two weeks after her initial locking session for her follow up visit and ALOT of the locks in the back were out. We will have to train her hair and watch it very closely due to her texture. But, I was pleasantly pleased when she walked in the door to see how her hair had filled in, it was gorgeous. Sorry, I didn't even think to take a picture but I will next time, I promise ;>

Drea's Locking Session

Hey everyone!

Sorry it took me so long to upload these pictures but here is my latest full install. Drea had 3 to 4 inches of new growth with permed ends. It took us 12 hrs and 45 minutes to complete. Her hair came out beautifully! She was sitting in my chair justa made my heart happy ;> To view all of the pics, click on the link in the right section of the screen to go to my client's photos.

Eva's Consultation

Eva is SO funny to me. I thought I was excited to get my SL's but she (and Drea) have me slap on hold. I love it though, SL's will do you like that. We have chatted on the phone and via email a few times. Eva will have her hair locked on July 4th and 5th. She has not had a perm for about a year so she has a few permed ends but not many. She's already let me know what look she's going for. She loves Golden_08's locks. I do too, they are fierce.

Oh, she just had a little boy too and you all know that I'm expecting too. She' brought Brendon with her to the consultation. I was able to hold and love on him...I can't wait until my little man gets here. His name is going to be Aidon Jamal...what do you think?

Drea had her consultation today and we are going to have such a great time during her locking session. She's having her locks installed on the weekend of July 27th. She will have a blend of small to medium locks installed. She can't wait and neither can I ;> Drea has permed ends but we will only lock her new growth and clip the permed ends away little by little. She said tell everyone in blogger world, HEY...

I have pictures

It took us 14 hrs to install Mrs. Pat's SL's. She was a true champ! Her hair gave me a bit of a challenge because it was so soft and had a loose curl to it but we did it! I will watch her really close to minimize the amount of slippage she may have. I can't wait to do my next client!

1st Atl Client Install Day

Well, we got started at 7:20 this morning and stopped around 3:30 or so. We completed the front of Mrs. Pat hair and will complete the back tomorrow. Mrs. Pat has a very loose curly texture so it did present some challenges but we tackled them all. Her SL's are going to be beautiful! I'll post pictures tomorrow. (Can't you tell it was early, Mrs. Pat was like it is too early for all this ;>)

How I love my clients

I had a new retighten client today and we just clicked. She bought work with her and didn't get a chance to touch it. We talked the entire time. We had so much in common. That's what I love about my business. Although my body may be a little tired, I always feel completely satisfied once I complete a client's hair. This is so gratifying, it's the best. To all of my fellow consultants that are looking to become full time, it is so worth it! I love Sisterlocks ;> Well, I'm going to bed now, I have a client coming at 7 am so we can start the full locking session.


My hair

Well, I have been pressing my hair for the last year or so after I took my SL's down. I couldn't figure out how to manage my loose natural hair but I didn't want a perm so I started to get it pressed. It was SO long and pretty and then I had to go and put permanent color in it. It totally altered the texture of my hair. The body was gone and so was the beauty of my hair (to me). Anyhow, I have just continued to press it although I knew that it was damaged because when I shampoo my hair, some of the ends were still straight and would never revert back. Anyhow, I haven't pressed my hair for about a month or so and I just can't take it anymore. It looks so damaged because those ends are bone straight while the rest was kinky. Well, I took the scissors out and just started cutting.It's just hair right, it'll grow back. I will have to go to someone to let them even it out for me but I'm going to let it grow out a little first. I cut A LOT off but it was needed. Now, it'll be able to grow healthy and so much quicker. I'll keep you updated. Hunh, what does this have to do with SL's...I'm still considering getting a second set but I want to court my loose natural for a while first ;>

Starter locks for children

For those looking for a more affordable option for starting locks in your childs hair, there is another option that I provide, braidlocks. Don't get me wrong, SL's is the best option IMO but braidlocks does provide a great option for starter locks. The new growth would be interlocked during retightening sessions. It wouldn't be the same as the SL interlocking process but it will help to lessen the amount of slippage that beginning locks experience. If this is an option that may interest you, give me a call today to set up a free consultation at 678) 887-9912.

AlertPay Retraction

OK, I looked in my bank account today and the two deposits from AlertPay had arrived. I still think it took a little long but I wanted to put it out there that they had made the deposits.

Monday, June 09, 2008


Not so sure about AlertPay. It has been almost two weeks and I'm still waiting for the two small deposits to show up in my bank to verify my account. If it is taking this long to make two small deposits, how long would it be to extract money out of their system. Nah, iIll stick with PayPal...

Celina's Consultation

I just completed a consultation for a lady with the prettiest, thickest hair ever! She has ideal hair for SL's. Take a look at the sample locks. I can't wait until the locking session!

This picture is a little fuzzy but I was trying to show her parts. I put three different sizes,
S/M/L, to see which she liked best. I'll keep you guys posted.

I got my chair

Hey fam...

I got my chair yesterday and my 10 year old son helped me put it together, thanks Rick! It's not the chair that I wanted but I'd say it is a great start. Next, I have to get a shampoo bowl and a hair dryer so I can be a full service salon. God willing, it won't be long...

Two consultations and a new re tighten client! Show on out Lord, my desire is coming true. I was speaking with a coworker today about how my SL business is growing quicker than I expected and how thankful I am for that. I told her, I wonder what took me so long, why didn't I take this route first...she said because you would have been wondering what the other route was like. It was so enlightening and true. Now I know what the other route is about and I know SL's is for me. My calendar is getting very full for June so I'm sure I'll have some pictures to post soon.

Tossing and Turning

I can't sleep! On top of the fact that I have to use the restroom 20 times in an hour, my mind just won't rest. It is constantly moving. I just want to thank God for His blessings and how He is opening the door for me to receive clients. I just set up a consultation for a young lady from DC for 7/26. As I was online working last night (I call consider visiting blogs and answering questions/posting messages working to grow my SL biz) Joel Olsteen was on in the background. I didn't catch it all then I realized that the message was indeed for me. He was talking about God blessing you to do just what it is you desire to do. The reason why I haven't received that promotion is because God has greater things for me than to just become a Sr. Analyst. I have been trying to get promoted for the last year or so and couldn't understand why it hadn't happened yet. If I would have received that promotion, my focus would have turned to learning my new position so that I could be all that I could be. I realize now that that is not my future and I praise God for the revelation each and every day. I will walk out on faith and trust Him who knows the plans He has for my life. I love you Lord and am humbly grateful and I accept this honor/task/responsibility with great regard for Your people. May God bring each and every one of you the desires of your hearts as well! Until next time...
