I can't believe it's been sooooo long since my last post!! Life has changed so much since I was last here. I'm no longer on the East Coast, I've moved back home to the midwest. I'm in Graduate school, and now have a family....ahhhhh!!! Life is great!!! Oh, one last thing....I'm 3 yrs 2 mos in to my sisterlock journey :o)
Hey all, I'm sooooo excited! As you can tell by the title of this post I've reached my 1 year mark...YAY!!!! I'm officially in my 2nd year of locking. You know in my last post I said that I'd seen changes and that you wouldn't be able to see them on camera. Well to put it simply, I lied! I didn't mean to though...lol. I didn't realize the changes were so noticeable until I saw the pictures for myself. I am so in love with my Sisterlocks and look forward to seeing what the next year brings. I've put together some comparison shots Day 1 vs 6 Months vs 1 Year. I'm sure you'll enjoy them as I have...hehehe.
Hey all, I apologize for not updating sooner but working full time and trying to build a business gets a little hectic at times. Unfortunately, it causes me to fall behind on my blog posting. So here's a treat, my second installation. We'll call her "Amatullah", she's muslimah so I couldn't show her face. Not that you all are concerned with her face anyhow, it's her hair you wanna see right? Well here it is, I am very proud of how it turned out...yay me!!! She was/is estatic about her hair and her husband love love loves it. The first day I had only finished about a fourth of the front and already she was trying to swing her babies, loving it!!! Lol. I tell you I feel truly blessed to be able to provide a service that makes people feel soooo good. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
My hair has been coming along great. I see many changes that probably wouldn't show up on the pictures...lol. But guess what?! My one year anniversary is coming up on the 21st of this month. I have a retightening on the 17th of this month and yes I still go to my consultant because I enjoy being in and out in a couple of hours. Don't talk about me too bad... :o). Anywho, I will most definitely take pictures so you all can see my progress. Until the next time....
I have to tell you that after this installation and a couple of retightening clients that I have a whole new respect for SL consultants. :o) This is Berne and she was the perfect first installation client. She was very patient, excited, and friendly. I enjoyed the time we spent together and let me tell you that it took a looooong time...lol. But I know I'll get faster so I'm not worried about it. She had a lot of balding and thinning but I think I compensated very well. I gave her more fullness in the back since I couldn't do it so much in the front. We're hoping that most of her hair will grow back in. I told her that I would add locks as it grew in. I explained everything to her as I went along and she was very understanding. The most exciting part was her reaction when I was finally done, she was sooooooo happy. She kept saying no more bad hair days! She gave me the biggest and warmest hug before she left. I can't tell you how great that made me feel :oD.
Hey all! I just got back from my first day of consultant training and I have had a great day :o). It was interesting at the beginning of the day to hear everyone's hair story. Some were very similiar to my own and some had completely different experience's. There was one woman who said her family makes fun of her calling her gorgeous, and they were thick and gawjus, sisterlocks a pick-a-ninny hairstyle. I was amazed that one they couldn't see the beauty in her hair and two that people even still use that term in 2009. We even had a woman in the class that traveled all the way from France to attend the consultant's training. She had just had her installation three weeks ago and had to travel to London to get them done.
The master trainer (MT) and the certified training assistant (CTA) were both very knowledgeable. The MT has had sisterlocks for about 9-10 years and the CTA has had sisterlocks for 16 years! Wow! Her hair was simply stunning. Our first lesson was towards the end of the day and these two ladies made sure we completely understood and learned the objectives before we were released for the day. They make a great team. I look forward to tomorrow.
I met some wonderful ladies that don't live far from me at all. I am too excited about that because in all the time I've been here I have yet to make any friends. So this was definitely a great day for me.
My hair is doing great, I'm in my 8th month and still loving my sisterlocks. I'll have to take some pictures and post them within the next couple of days. Everyone in the class today, except for one lady, had sisterlocks. I loved seeing all the different textures and lengths, I will definitely be taking some pictures and posting them. Anywho, just wanted to check in since its been a little while since I've posted anything. Let you guys know what's going on with Sereni-T. Until tomorrow....Caio!!
The definition of Serenity is peaceful, calm. This is the state of mind that I strive to embrace throughout my life. It's also the state of mind I'd like to keep thoughout this journey into sisterlocks. I'm 6 yrs natural embarking on a new journey. Enjoy...
