“Women are like tea bags. They do not know how strong they are until they get into hot water,” Eleanor Roosevelt   I’m a perfectionist. You may not have noticed, but I like things just so. I have my systems, my quirky ways of doing things and I loathe a job done ‘near enough is good enough’. It is not. I have high expectations...

I am not going to pull my punches today. Yes this will make some people mad, but hopefully it will also make them think. I also realize that I’m preaching to the choir here, but if you feel the way I do – SHARE IT and spread the word.   If there is one phrase that makes me mad and will garner an instant reaction, it is when people...

Oct 07, 13 Can you do vintage hairstyles with naturally curly hair?

Posted by in Hair, watch me

I’m always surprised when I have clients with naturally curly hair, that they have so little idea what to do with it. Then I remind myself; I used to have hair like this when I was younger and had just as much frustration.
