Please mama can I have a mohawk?

Jada came and to me yesterday as I was putting my hair up in a ponytail and aske me if I could put her hair in a Mohawk like I do mine. First thing I said was yeah we will do it tomorrow (Saturday) so we have more time to play around with it.
Saturday comes and we are just chilling watching Spongebob and Jada is like Mama can you put my hair in a Mohawk now? I was oh yeah I did say that I was going to do that for you. So as Im looking at her hair I cant think of how Im going to do it because her hair is long. So of course I go to my source YouTube to find some videos where a Mohawks was done on long hair. So after about 30mins of not really finding anything that I liked I had an idea. So tell me what you think. I do have to say that my camera battery died on me so I had to use my phone so I apologize for the the picture quality up front.

My Hair Rant

Alright so I have to rant about something. On two occasions this weekend I was complimented on my Sisterlocks.

Now in the past when this has happened I corrected them and said “Oh thank you but they are not Sisterlocks. They are braid locs that I did, and as they grew I just maintained them.” Then of course the next question would be “Oh for real, can you do my hair?” Then I would have to politely decline.

Now you have to forgive me because I tend to go on a rant, and I might even ramble.

I don’t like to do other peoples hair because there was a time that I did do hair when I was in middle and high school I would do box braids and micros, I like to take my time and make sure the parts are on point and make sure everything is perfect. I would not do anything to their hair that I wouldn’t want on mine. Well there were a few people (didn’t really know them) that would get attitudes that I would not be done with their hair in a certain amount of time and would say so while Im doing their hair. Sooo needless to say unless they are family I won’t even touch their hair, and sometimes doing families hair is a stretch.

Back to what I was saying this weekend when I got the compliments on my “Sisterlocks” I didn’t bother to correct them and not because I wanted to pass them as Sisterlocks. I absolutely love the fact that people would even think that my work is Sisterlocks. I didn’t correct them because I just didn’t want to go through the whole thing of them asking me if I would do their hair. Yes I know that I can’t assume that every person that compliments my hair is going to ask me to do their but I would say 9 out of 10 if they are not locked, and they know of Sisterlocks, they are probably shopping around. I have talked to my friend about this and she just says why lie just tell them that they are not SL and you don’t do other people’s hair. One would think that its simple right? Well its not. If only you could see they way their whole body language changes once I say yes I did this but no I wont do yours its like daggers in my back, and I just don’t want to go through that.

Well that’s all for my rant today.
On a lighter side here are some updated pictures of my hair. I cant really tell if there have been any changes besides the fact that it has grown some but that is about it.
