I'm all smiles as I sported my new hairdo at work on Wednesday and my makeup which was done by a coworker.
She does not work as a hair stylist/braider by profession, but definitely has the natural gift to do such a job. She has never even attended school or training to do hair, but does it for our female family members and some of her close friends.
After a little over two hours under her creative fingers, my niece transformed my hair into this beautiful style which I love and for which I have received numerous complements since this Wednesday.
Actor and Comedian Chris Rock has already revealed many black hair secrets in his recent film, Bad Hair. However, I won’t reveal the details of how my niece transformed my hair. Neither will I post a “Before” picture which will both scare you and amuse you. (Ha, Ha).
“My niece braided my hair,” I told a friend during a phone conversation on Wednesday night. I had not yet revealed to her the details about the hair style.
“Is it your natural hair?” my friend asked. We have known each other about ten years so she knows my hair history.
“It’s on my head,” I told her, “and I’ll leave it at that.”
We both chuckled and then I described the details of the hair style.
Here I am on Thursday morning at the Atlanta airport seriously tuning up my presentation.
