Summer Time Hair

Published with Blogger-droid v1.7.2

This is from my first day at the new job. It never dawned on me to take a picture of it until I was in the ladies room. So far so good, the new job has been coming along and I have a great supervisor. Yah know me... I switched jobs every year to two years. It has been very hot in the DMV (DC/Maryland/Virginia). This updo definitely kept me ccol, and after I took it down, I had crinkles for a couple of days. ENJOY!

wish i could of taken more pics

Consultation Weekend

I just finished the Training course lastweek and I already had 2 consults. My first locking session is scheduled in two weeks and I can't wait. I have been having clients in and out since Friday, and I just finished interlocking this evening. When I get a chance I will post pics of my son's hair. We have only been doning an hour at a time, and he only has two and a half inches of hair. It has been great practice for any future clients with TWA's.

I should be moving into my office space not too far from my home on or around 09/01/11. With August just around the corner, I want to make sure that I have enough clientele to make the rent.

Open for Business

Last week I took the Sisterlocks training course, and now I am officially open for business. I have been out trying to promote the best that I can. I should also be moving into my own little spot soon too. A lot has been going on for me this week, I started a new job this week. I think I might like it. One of the reasons why I took a time out from blogging is because I went from one crazy job to another crazy job. I went through TWO jobs that were just pure hell between the end of 2008 till now. I think this new job will be a great fit for me, if not... then I am staying home and just doing natural hair. Check out the flyer. I am offering the Sisterlocks package for $350.00 this includes: Consultation, locking session, follow up, and 1st retightening. This price is practically unbeatable, but I want to move from trainee status to Certified status by the end of the year. So if you are in the Maryland area, or know someone who is interested, then give me a call...

I can be reached at (301)653-3708.

Happy B-Day...

Today is my baby's birthday. I don't even think I can call him a baby anymore. He has just turned 8. I am glad that I was able to see this day transpire. I wish that I could have taken off today, but we will have all weekend to celebrate his birthday.

All Good Things Must come to an End....

Hooray! I finished my sisterlocks training and I am now an official Sisterlocks ™ trainee. Hopefully in a few weeks I will see my name flashing on the Sisterlocks ™ site.

I have learned a lot through this intense class or should I say Marine Bootcamp. I met a lot of good people along the way. I am curious how we will all progress and I will be keeping in contact with everyone. Right now I am at the airport waiting to come home to my family. I dearly miss them, but I had to go "handle business".

I had a lot of piece and quiet, but now I am ready to get back to my busy life as being mom, wifey, business woman, and student. I am so glad that I have learned so much about my own hair, and knowledge of natural hair in general that I can pass along to my clients.

Family Triple Team!

Pictures can say a thousand words. I know you all know the lady in the middle. Not many may know the other two. They are Monica (far left) and Celeste (far right). Monica and Celeste have been teaching the Consultant training here in San Diego this weekend. They are awesome! I am so glad that I decided to fly out here. There has been no better place and time to take this trainee course.

Let me ask you this... Do you see any resemblence in this picture? Yes, they are all family. Big sis (Celeste) and niece (Monica). These two have been in every step with Dr. C. from the get go. There is nothing like family support.

Being a small business owner myself, one of the main things that me and my husband are incorporating is our children is that family is your biggest support. We are teaching them that encouragement is valued. And Dr. C. has a wonderful family. This week I have seen why there couldn't be Sisterlocks ™ without the "SISTER". Tomorrow is the last day of training. I am receiving loads and loads of useful information. Dr. C. has been a great help this week too!

Checkin' In!

I am on a serious travel budget. This is my dinner every night this week. Good ole PB&J, and bannanas for breakfast! Reality has set in before I even flew out here that bills have to be paid when I get home. No need to blow unneccesary money.

I must say, training has me thinking alot about my hair, its current state, the beginning stages, and what will become of my locks in the future. I have seen all stages hairlocking this week from 20 year old locks to 20 day old locks.

I think somewhere down the line of my journey, I will cut my locks off and start again. When I started my locks I had about 14 inches of natural hair, and I never got to experience the TWA. At times I feel as though I cheated my own self. Don't get me wrong I am loving my locks, and I have always have. But I love seeing women/men starting out with such short locks and then watching them mature. You can correct me if I am wrong, but do you appreciate the experience of having your locks grow from a TWA to down your back?

Made it to the Jacob center.

Published with Blogger-droid v1.7.2

Today has been great. I met lovely new people and started my training. There were plenty of vendors at the Jacob center. And since being in San Diego, I have received a lot of compliments on my hair. I am thinking that is because I have them curled. Anyone who sees me everyday knows that I wear them like plain jane. I am tired (of course) So I will end this day with some highlight photo's of the day. Enjoy!

finally touched down to San Diego

Published with Blogger-droid v1.7.2

It has been a very long night. I have day one of the training course, and I should be sleep, but I am blogging and working on my midterm (I should be concentrating on my mid term. Good Night Folks... more updates tommorrow evening.

Day 1... Headed to Cali

Well I am finally on my way to San Diego. Today is day one of the Sisterlocks Homecoming Festivities. Unfortunate for me, this day will be spent traveling. This has been a very, very busy week for me, I have homework and a midterm, but I tried to accomplish most of this throughout the week. I am also starting a new job, so I have been working 10 hour days to make sure I do not leave any loose ends... can we say exhausting. I will be in San Diego for the next couple of days so that I can enjoy Homecoming and to become certified. Yes CERTIFIED. I am still at Ronald Regan Airport, just waiting for my flight.

This is the first time that I will be leaving my entire family at home, and in a different time zone will make it even more ruff on me to leave them behind. But I go to do what I need to do, to get where I need to get.

Next stop from here is Denver, then hello Sunny California.
