This past weekend not only did I have the pleasure of connecting with old High School classmates, I also went to a haircut party and got my “do” did.
Growing my medium length hair to lower back length has been a goal of mine for some time now so cutting it seemed a bit counter productive to that goal. Plus, I like to wear my hair in protective styles most of the time (like up-dos with a front swoop).
The problem with reaching my goal was I hadn’t had a decent hair cut in years. Couple that with the fact that my hair grows much faster on the bottom in the back, it was not really shaped well. Hence, the reason I was never 100% thrilled with my twist outs and wash and go’s.
So, instead of just having hair that’s there. I wanted a cut that gave some shape to my hair.
On Sunday, I took a trip to the
boonies New Jersey where I attended a hair cutting party (sorry Jersey girls. It’s a world away for me).
Me and 8 other ladies had our hair cut by the infamous, most talented Tameeka of Jaded Tresses. Tameka can reshape any hair into a work of art. Check out my before pics:
I was very nervous about getting my hair cut from the beginning so not being able to see how much Tameeka was cutting had my nerves on end. I honestly didn’t even think my hair looked that bad before the cut.
After the cut, when I saw the results on my wet hair I was a little disappointed. I thought my hair looked very flimsy. Every other lady that had her hair cut was left with it looking better than before – curled, defined and full.
Then, here I come with my fine hair. This is it after the wet cut:
Nothing too fabulous to look at right? Not what I expected but what a work of art that cut turned out to be after completely drying and moving in to second day hair (keep looking – it’s a slide show :-)):
BAM! I’m telling you, I didn’t even expect my hair to look as defined and voluminous. After all, it’s fine hair right?
Anyway, Tameeka used Wonder Curl products which I had yet to try for myself. I did however purchase them before the cut. More on that later.
If you are in the New York area and need a bomb diggity cut (or just a consultation), contact Tameeka. You final result won’t be a disappointment. Just look at me 🙂
P.S. Shelli of Hairscapades arranged the hair cutting party. Check out the other ladies cuts here.
