New Protective Style: Cornrow Twists
After waiting for hours for my turn at my salon, though I own the place, I make the customers the priority so I gave up and decided to have my braids done on Sunday instead. I just whiled away the 6 hours I spent there chatting with the clients about hair care and gave some free tips!! And poor me, I had a flat tyre on my way to the salon on Sunday!! How much hussle do I have to go through to get my hair done by my favourite braider?!! Hhehhehehhehhehehe (I have no idea about where to even start fixing flats!! Bad huh?) !! Luckily, I asked around and found some mechanics who helped out for a fee, and then when I called the hairdresser about an hour later, she had already left the shop on an errand since she thought I would take longer to get there.
Now I was pressed for time since it was past 1pm by this time and I was sure the braids will take at least 3 hours so I decided not to wait for her but get another hairdresser to do my braids!! Bad idea? Let's see the outcome of my adventure.....lol!
I always try to allow some room for error when I go to a new salon, but not the kinds of errors that will leave my hair in a disaster.
My observations with this hairdresser:
She complied when I asked her to use a wide tooth comb only to comb my hair and did not braid tightly. I also asked for big braids so that was also done well. My only problem was that she wasn't an excellent braider.....the job is not the type that will turn heads......lol!! And she wasn't able to do the exact style I wanted with the cornrows in front though the photo calendar was right in her shop. I alerted her at least 3 times to no avail. Also, the braids were not done well; I had to redo 2 already this morning as they fell out as I was massaging my scalp. Conclusions, she is not a good braider and I won't patronise her service again. Too bad because her shop is very close to my house.
I do really need to find a "spare" hairdresser!! Anyone around Tema especially Tema Comm 22 or Ashaiman you can recommend?
