Today was a Good Day

I completed the top section of Leilani's hair. I shampooed my hair and didn't braid and band. HAHAHA. I had my hair retightened and my consultant didn't notice. HAHAHA. Ayana thought Leilani's hair looked great and asked me to do a SL for her. I then got the honor to see a Muslim lady's hair. When she came the only skin showing was her eye area and her hands. Immediately I thought she was going into the other room. Next thing I know, she started unwrapping her hijab and BAM. The cutest platinum blond curlies and waves. I told her I was honored that she would let me see her hair. I've only seen three Muslim ladies hair that do wear the hijab. Once in 9th grade when my friend insisted that she could tell her hair was a mess. Then when I was a photo tech at Target in college. I had to cover the shoot the photo fall from so nobody could see them. And she was from somewhere and had 24k jewelry on from head to toe and red. After the Muslim lady left, I had finished another section for Leilani and so next Tuesday I will be retightening a few ladies' for her.
CELEBRATION!
Nothing beats a failure but a try!
