This is just a quick post featuring photographs of the last few days of me enjoying my Red (ish) Free Afro. The first few photos of me and my husband were taken by Raymond of A-Picture Photography please check out his page and book him, he is an amazing photographer!
This is the very last photo of me and Soleil (my hair) out and about!
The lady on the far right is the beautiful & talented Lucy Lee of House of Loulee the maker and designer of my favourite purple dress!
The lady on the far left is Rachel Miller of The Events Depot she makes amazing balloon decor and also does event and party planning.
The lady in the snazzy red collar (another House of Loulee creation) is Ruby. Ruby does not have a business (yet) but that’s not the point, she is a good friend and so supportive and generous. Yay Sisterhood!
Hello my Cakers Bakers & Beauties!
On the 21st of September, I happened to be in Brixton and wandered past this salon:
The name piqued my curiosity because it seemed to suggest that the salon catered towards the health of hair and not just the look. I went inside to ask some questions as I could see that it was not very busy, I was welcomed in and offered a seat by one of the Senior Stylists- Maureen, I asked if they do Natural Hair and what kind of products they used. Maureen was so professional and knowledgeable that I felt at ease with her immediately. The salon was also clean and well presented.
As I had a photo shoot the next day and since I wasn’t sure how I was going to do my hair I asked if I could have my hair done straight away, Maureen said that was fine as she was not busy until later. I only had a wash, condition and style as my hair was not in need of a treatment. Maureen was VERY gentle with my fine strands and let me read the ingredient list of every single product she used before she used it on my hair. If I wasn’t happy about an ingredient Maureen showed me an alternative product to use instead.
Maureen also explained what she was doing each step of the way and let me see the tools she was going to use on my hair, I don’t know if she does this for every one or just for me because I had explained that I don’t like going to the hairdressers, either way I was very happy with the service there. I also met the owner and manager of the salon, her name is June and she too, is very experienced and professional, June also has her own range of all-natural hair care products, some of which were used on me. I have a selection of her range and will be posting a product review when I’ve used up some of the products I already have piled up ..Lol!
I recommend paying a visit to this Salon if you can get to Brixton.
The style I had was two strand twist in the back and a few canerows in the front, I’m sorry I do not have any photos of the process as June was very private about the techniques they use in the salon. My final aim was to have a twist out the next day for the shoot but as the shoot was outside and it was VERY windy my hair ended up doing it’s own thing and I just went with it!
