I Cheated...The Story of My Hair Affair

I cheated. On my hairdresser that is. Yep, I felt guilty...but boy am I LOVING my new hair style.

See the thing is the hairdresser that I 150% loved and adored moved away 5 years ago and I have not found that one person who just totally gets my hair. You see this mane of hair on my head has a mind of her own, she's thick, she's a mix of textures, she's brazen, and if you don't play nice she will show you that she ain't having it...sigh. Oh yea and I call her Luscious Lola.

Lola and I have salon hopped over the years, we have fallen prey to quite a few slick marketing gimmicks, we have allowed hair dressers to put creamy crack in our hair, we have been the victim of carrot top aka when the color goes oh so horribly wrong, we have beaten and subdued our hair at The Dominican Salons...which caused heat damage you could not even name it and Lola and I have done it.

Late last year we started seeing Mr. Big (the name has been changed to protect the innocent - smile), and we really do love him. He pampered Lola, he nursed her back to health but still she and I just wanted something more.

And then we found her. Yesterday we walked into Christo in Manhattan met Queen Curl herself Ms. Tameeka McNeil-Johnson and so our Hair Affair begins. Tameeka is a gorgeous curly who looked at Lola and got it. She played nice with her and coaxed her into gorgeous ringlets. Who knew??!! Lola swooned, blushed, and fell in love.

Christo Fifth Avenue is a salon for curly's and is located in Manhattan. Find them on the web at; but be sure to ask for Queen Curl: Ms. Tameeka who can also be found at her web-site

Until Next Time,

  1. Oooooh I'm tellin'! I've been going to the same barber since 96, even in my bald stage.... and I feel like crap if I cheat. I really think cheating is easier for women to handle than men since us men are know for being such faithful creatures. But sometimes u gotta get away from what you know to learn what you don't. I hope you continue to see them both, its kinda exciting... not to mention, ur hair looks INCREDIBLE!
