At the hair salon



Dynas and me share the same hairdresser but I think I may have been with him the longest. I met Rick about 8 or 9 years ago and I've moved wherever he's moved. He's currently in Uptown and his salon is huge! (It's called Sense Studio) He has like the whole floor. I'm so proud of him because his first salon was like a shoe box compared to what it is now :) It's been really nice seeing him grow.



ah, here's Rick. He was relieved I cut my one length long curtain of hair when I first met him because it's good to play around and have change. He said "Oh my God, your hair is SOOO long, Jojo. It's nice, it's healthy and really boring" Oh did I tell you another reason why I like Rick? He's totally blunt with me. Doesn't beat around the bush. Just tells me straight. He would see me in a magazine and say "what did they do to your hair???" and I would know he didn't like the shot but if he did, he would say I looked good if he really thought so :) so at least I'll always get an honest opinion.




"So when you wanna cut it, please come to me. I'll be waiting with the scissors" (seriously, he was!) I stubbornly kept my long hair for a few years at least and Rick was kind enough to give it treatments whenever it was getting dry (he never charged me so I didn't charge him either whenever he needed a model for his shoots) From being a person who didn't have any difference whatsoever day in day out, I started to experiment. Just baby steps like colouring my hair a shade of brown or getting a fringe, even chopping it off in '07 to a bob. 



Rick was right. It's just hair. It grows back. I felt much lighter with short hair. It made me feel "cute" and "fresh" but long hair makes me feel more 'sexy'. It's really a mood thing. So now I'm growing it back. I miss my long hair so I've already told Rick to be prepared. The long curtain is coming back. He just rolled his eyes.


I know he secretly likes my long hair but doesn't want me to get too stuck into a particular style. Especially this Adam's family "look" haha. Rick is an avant garde stylist ma. So, what would you expect? ;)



Dynas is the one who's pregnant yet her dress is more figure hugging than mine. Sexy mama!!! (And for those of you who asked, no, my hands aren't covering anything. No baby on the way la. Not even married! ;)



Getting your hair done is like getting your nails or a facial done. It's quite personal so most of us have a "usual" or regular place we go to for these things. What's funny is a friend of mine used to go to a hairdresser down the road from where he lived for the longest time. He even had a bit of a crush on her when he was a teenager but years later, he decided to shave his head so there was no real need to go to her anymore. He found a cheaper place to get a head shave.

Here's the funny thing. He ran into her when he was all grown up and she asked why he hadn't come to her and he found himself making up some excuse on the spot like he'd moved away, didn't bother anymore, was too busy. He felt bad and he thought it was ridiculous how he was mumbling away his apologies as if he'd done something wrong! It's like a relationship and he felt he's cheated on her by going to someone else hehe It's pretty funny when you think about it but it's true that people who do your hair, your nails or your beauty treatments can become a part of the people and places you see so regularly so they are a part of your life in some way.


Lynn also gets her hair done at Rick's and I was asking her how motherhood was going. She seemed really upbeat and is somehow managing to juggle her work and also be a Mum. I asked to see a photo of her baby "Aw, so tiny. really cute!" :)

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I begin to get real money.
It's all about how to select a proper partner who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the income with me.

You may ask, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:

Your clients will certainly commit hrs at the same time inside your studio room for a shade or perhaps a minimize, as well as you wish to allow it to become secure for him or her. You should use a number of tips to create a secure atmosphere for him or her. You should use designing as well as design systems to build a mood that can get customers coming back for over a great Hair Cut
