So the Nzuri show was great and I’ve got hundreds of pictures and vids to edit and organize, but first things first: LOLA HAS A NEW LOOK.
So here’s how this all went down. I’ve had Damn envy for months since meeting the Damn ladies in February. A couple weeks ago I facebooked Mushiya (founder and owner of the Damn Salon) with this message:
Mushiya. I’m inspired. it involves me, you, and a pair of clippers. call me.
We chatted eventually she got on my Damn vision train. Upon my arrival in Houston I immediately went to get Damned to the tune of Urban Twists and added a streak of honey blonde to the front for a pop of Damn color. Loved it. Here’s a vid on how that turned out!
But this was only part of my vision. What I REALLY wanted, was a Damn Fade. Yes that’s right Damn Urban Twists + A Fade = THE NEW ME. I ended up finding an accommodating stylist named Faruq of Knatty Headz Natural Hair Studio (who happened to be an exhibitor at the Nzuri show) to also get on board with Operation Damn Fade. So at about 13:45 (we speak in military times when it comes to such serious missions) I sat in a Knatty styling chair in the middle of the Nzuri show with the Damn girls by my side and magic happened. It was pretty Damn epic so good thing we caught it all on film!
Yessssss…..I am TRULY loving it! As you can see it was quite an epic Sunday!
The irony is that last Monday I featured Chescaleigh’s faux-shave tutorial for those who didn’t want the commitment, but what no one really knew is that the Damn Fade was already well underway by the time that went up. My last cut grew out quite quickly and I actually had wanted it more dramatic with the short side being even shorter. So once the Damn Urban Twists are out, I’ll have everything evened out and where I want them to be! Here are a few stills of the Damn Fade. Enjoy!
