I'm talking about hair of course!! Getting styled or being styled. My interest started with my Barbie dolls and the Barbie bust...
I started doing my own hair around the age of 9. By 16/17 I'd cut, colored, braided and styled myself any which way I could think of and by 18 decided to enroll in cosmetology school. But I didn't go through with it after my acceptance. WHY you may ask... I didn't want to be a statistic, let me explain. How many young black girls are going to "hair school"??? A bajillion and 3, I wanted to do MORE, make my mark with something better. So enrolled in college with a major of entertainment business(I'll open my own record label, SUPER original) I loved it. But I just couldn't keep my interest up.
I've maintained my stylist gene, doing my daughters hair, my mothers coloring, my own weaves( sew in and quick) etc. But at 27 I dream about hair. Styles, methods, supplies, how many people have a hair supply wishlist or lose their minds when they go into a Beauty supply store... My younger sister is also a hair fool and recently enrolled in cosmetology school. She says the reason I'm dreaming of hair is because I'm meant to do hair.
If I wanted to incur more debt and be back in school I'd SOOO do it. Statistic?? maybe but it's a skill that will always make money anywhere I may go...
until then I guess just I'll dream
