So, I love my hair- its flexibility to transform, reenergize, invigorate, and all those other fun adjectives! Over the last few months, I have been at an impasse with my hair and what to do with it. I KNEW I wanted something different, something fun, and something easy…
AND THEN I FOUND HER.
My long lost hairdresser from years past! The ONLY woman I will let color, cut, perm, sew, dye, and have free range with my hair. DeDe.
See, me and Dede go way back. Like when I was like 17 ish? She and I met through family friends at church and I knew we were going to be a great match. But, after moving to the bay and back again, she changed locations and numbers and my hair longed for her… I missed her. She was the ONLY person I could go into the salon to and tell her what vibe I was feeling and would magically make it happen. Edgy, Sexy, Fierce, you name it, Dede had a style for me for that word…
SO! Being the ever so resourceful person I am, I tracked down her sister on Facebook. I KNEW she’d be on there, cause Dede is not! And VOILA! With one message in her inbox, Dede’s sister shot me back the digits to her sister!
We finally connected. FINALLY! And when I sat in her new chair, it felt like time never passed between us! I mean 13 years is a long time to know someone especially when it comes to your hair! LOL Now that I am back in Southern California, TRUST we will never be parting, if I have anything to do with it! LOL
So yesterday, I strolled into her chair and told her I wanted a chop (DEDE can cut the hell out of some hair!) I knew my hair wasn’t in the best shape and wasn’t sure that color was an option, but she said with as much as we are cutting off, my hair would be able to withstand it! And we went for it!
Here is the finished product!
