High Honors, but who brags nowadays?!
Sometimes the naysayers are your peers, sometimes authority, instructors, educators. Follow your path and block out the rest. I understand if you don’t know which path you’re on, which path you “should” take, or which path you’re “supposed” to be on... your path is the one you decide to take. You. Only you. Because no one lives your life but you. If you let someone else influence your decision or choose your life, you’ll end up filled with regret and resentment. That is not your purpose. You’re greater than that. Try the thing you’ve always wanted to try; except heroine. Don’t try that. Use your brain. C’mon.

The Perms Don’t Die
White, gray, pink, & blue rods
@zotosprofessional Quantum Perm
(After wrapping the rods, I had to loosen some and adjust the bands in order to insert some plastic picks to reduce/prevent breakage at the band.) (...so that’s why the band goes across the top/faces you?!!?!)
•Happy to announce there was ZERO breakage and her curls came out beautifully.
Once a week she gets her hair done in a roller set. The purpose of the perm (cold wave) is to help hold her style by creating volume and structure. It also makes it easier to roll with the help of the preexisting curl formation.
‍🦱Thank you, @zotosprofessional !!

“Ladybug in Grass”
We had to create a character(paint ourselves)that would fit in the jungle so that we wouldn’t get eaten...or some kind of backstory like that.
I painted my model with layers of grass, including shadow and highlight, and a little ladybug. She’s sure to survive.

Great Cuts = Great Grow-out⁣
⁣

Pictured:⁣
•1 Month Growout⁣
Notice the shape definition, directional layers, frontal fringe texture and how it follows the wave pattern.⁣
⁣
This cut + her texture/density + @pureology Mess It Up Texture Paste™️ = the perfect finger-tousled hair.⁣
⁣
️She has a weight line in the back, near the nape/below the occipital...it’s not a mistake. When originally cut, there was a color contrast between the two lengths which added a very unique perspective, so I kept it.⁣ Just so we’re clear:  horizontal lines build weight, and vertical lines remove it.
⁣
Remember: you can always cut more off, but you can’t put more on. So why not experiment and try different things?! ⁣

It’s been quite a journey, adventure, whirlwind of every emotion possible.
•••...the “even betters” and “better yets” are yet to come!!!

Know my angles, and your angles, too.
When crosschecking a haircut, hold the comb perpendicular to the way the hair was cut. Finger angle is important. You can’t crosscheck a cut holding your fingers at zero degrees if they were held at 45° in that section during the process.
