Formal Updos

When I first started doing updos, I had no training.  

Now with 30 years of experience and practice I have confidence to create updos that are beautiful. As a professional now, my clients leave happy! This makes me happy!

I really enjoyed doing this sweet young lady’s hair for her 2014 prom!


My practice updos, on some manikins 🙂


Picture I took, of a flawless updo!


So beautiful!

Hairdresser Adventures


They say only your hairdresser knows.  We know a lot of our clients secrets.

Neck strips and the sound of clippers;
Towel, towels, and more towels!!
Foil and perm rods,
Wax is sticky!!
Nothing is like a fine working hair salon!!
What a pleasure giving women modern beautiful hair styles, cuts; I like handsome groomed men.


Clean stations and relaxing professional shampoos.

Sharp shears and satisfied customers is a hairdressers joy!

Barbers and cosmetologist  working together for one common goal, making money and wanting to make people look and feel there best.
To move forward hairdressers learn the new trends in the hair fashion world.

Well I have worked in 15 salons in the past 30 years.
Wow! I experienced some kindness and drama!
If you stay in the same town people will follow you.
If you move to a new state you have to start your clientele all over again! Waa Waa!
Life in a salon, there are rumors, gossip, laughter, jokes, bad hair cuts, good hair cuts, great hair cuts.  Prayers, compassion, friends, and enemies.

Having no lunch break we would eat a meal in 15 to 10 minutes.
Competition between stylist for space between salon chairs; bumping buns so to speak!
Hair is everywhere; in your shoes, pockets, and bra.
Clients who tip and those who never will.
The smell of different shampoos, remind me of different salons, I worked at.
Greeting clients so they feel welcome! Making sure there comfortable. Offering them a refreshment.
Comfortable shoes are a must for a hair stylist.
Skunky perms; smell like money!!
Some clients weren’t happy no matter what anyone could do!!
Everyone would like you to do their hair for free! 😦 
Make sure you keep your clients phone numbers. Just in case you move to a new shop in town.
Before and after pictures are awesome!
It helps to have a sense of humor!

Tapered Fade Hair Cut

I started with a #4 guard on my clippers and cut off the hair at the temples on both sides and the crown.

Then a #3 guard on both sides 1/2 way up to blend, then a #2 guard 1/4 of the way up to blend. 

I cut the top short, one finger width with my shears and cleaned up the edges with my t-edgers.

This cut is very stylish. As the cut  grows out it will look good for a long time. My son looks so adorable and definitely styl’in!!

Party Hair Style

Not too formal hair style for long hair. Tina wanted to wear her hair down for a big get together with family and friends. She is a nail technician. At work she always wares her hair up in a pony tail. She wanted to look nice and wear her hair down, so we decided on this style for her.

I used a med size curling iron. I started with sections on the bottom. I sprayed every strand with Joico firm hair spray. This will make it stay in. Your hands can get a little sticky but it works great. Then I back combed the crown for some height . After that I pulled up the front of her hair and crisscross with bobby pins to the crown of her head. So cute!!

JoiMist® Firm

  • This firm-hold aerosol spray locks in finished style for all-day hold and support.
  • UV protectants protect against daily environmental stress.
  • An excellent humidity-resistant firm-hold spray that maintains hair    shape throughout the day.

This is her finished product. She love it, so did her friends and family at the party! She is going to have her first baby soon. I am excited for her!

Locks for Love

What a great gift my client gave! I cut 91/2 inches of his hair, that he had been growing out for almost 2 years. It was grown and cut for one purpose; for locks for love.


I measured it because it needs to be 8 inches long or longer to send it in; then wrapped it in a tight rubber band.


Then I cut it off. I think he lost some weight with all that hair gone!


Now he is going to grow it out, so he can give it away for locks for love again.

Prom Up-do

This was easy to do!

Jordan went to Prom last night! I did her up do.

I hair sprayed each section with Joico joimist firm hairspray.

Then curled large rotated spiral curls

I loosed her curls with my fingers.

I took a section from the crown and crisscrossed  some bobby pins to make a small bump.

 I took more hair from the top to go over the crown to make a bigger bump.

Then I bobby pinned it together and sprayed more hair spray.

I sure hope she had a great time!
