Ladies, let’s talk class and elegance with the “Old Money” bob. Timeless like a Louis Vuitton bag yet versatile like our favorite Lulu Lemon leggings, this haircut is a lifestyle game-changer that blends comfort, efficiency and luxe.

Stay tuned on my story each day this week for stunning transformations that will show you just how this look can change your style game!


Y’all, the Charleston Dragon Boat Festival is this Saturday and I’ll be paddling in it, once again! Also, you may already know this, but I’m in my 5th year of cancer survivorship and I give great credit to my Dragon Boat Community for the way they have empowered and supported me after my cancer battle. There’s so much more I could say and I WILL because I’ve actually been asked to be the Survivor Speaker this year! Whew! 😅 I fully expect someone to bring a big GONG to beat on like they had on the GONG SHOW.

Come have some fun watching the race, eating from the food trucks, shopping with vendors and support DBC. Show us some love , just don’t throw rotten tomatoes 🍅 at me 😉

Happening now!! Tents are going up!

What’s the coolest thing about this beautiful cowboy copper hair color? It’s actually 100% natural! Untouched virgin hair. Probably more Irish ☘️ than country western 🤠 And, yes! Cowboy copper is still super hot. But, you can see that for yourself!

Somebody tell me what was in the air or the water this week! So many meaningful moments and happy hair transformations!

You don’t need a close up look to see how thick and full and ridiculously SHINY (and healthy!) this hair looks after an all-over color and a good, crisp cut!

I was SO excited to do this transformation. No, I’m not scissor happy, but I really believe the Chanel quote, “A woman that cuts her hair is about to change her life.”

A big hair chop like this is a BOLD move! This fierce woman takes life by the horns in a big way, so it’s no surprise that this bold, blunt bob was her cut of choice. I can’t wait to see what she is manifesting in her life, cause I think it’s gonna be BIG!

We don’t just do HAIR, we do LIFE together! And this precious friend is a lifer in my book!! ❤️

Hey, life may have blips & bloops, or even BLEEPS! @& #%*!… But, that’s how it goes! I’m here for you, and when that dust settles, or you get back in the saddle, or back to taking care of numero UNO, I’ll be ready for ya!

Have you thought about that before? If you’ve been gone for a bit, or haven’t been doing much with your hair lately, or *gasp!* salon-hopped!!! It’s OKAY!!! I do the SAME THING!! It’s not personal, and I don’t take it that way. Some days I like slumming it too. Kidding, kidding…

What I’m saying is, I am always here for you. PERIOD.

Have a great day and SEE YOU REAL SOON! 🥰

“Hurry, real quick, let me snap a pic of your hair before the sun goes down! I deserve it for all the sweat I put into it!

…Story of my life, after giving my favorite daughter a haircut & smoothing treatment. 4 hours-worth, ahem!

Lawd knows she has more hair than we know what to do with!! 🩸 😅 😭 …But at least we are all set for at least another 3 months! Phew! 😅

What a difference a haircut can make! This brave girl took the bull by the horns and committed to a curtain fringe. BUT…bum…bum…bummmmm…Did you know you can get bangs that are temporary?? Yes, you sure can!! I’m stocking up on them and will personally tailor the fringe to the shape and color of your choice. What’s stopping you from trying it out for yourself?

Once upon a time I took on a 26 hour color correction from black box dye. Please do not try this at home. The box dye OR the correction. Thankfully we had super powers of 3-in-1 molecular mender to protect her hair. Whew 😅

I mean…I just can’t…um…fshbbbflllbbbst…just speechless! My cousin sure does know how to pick a beautiful girlfriend!! I mean…


Not gonna lie, this isn’t my hair. It’s extensions. And I used Facetune. Why? Because I can! I have a splitting headache and a nasty cold and couldn’t deal with makeup. But I could deal with putting in extensions! Just wanted a little more flirty fun!!


I am so excited for the new things to come in 2024. With the top notch education I’ve invested in this year there is SO MUCH in store for you. Dream big and let me help you make your dreams a reality!


All I want for Christmas I already got! My gorgeous daughter is the light of my life. Secretly, I wonder when will be the day she no longer asks me to style her beautiful hair. But for now I count my blessings that we have these moments together. A drivers license is coming soon, and you probably know what that means. I’m clinging to these short blips in time before she’s off to the races! A perfect relationship? Nooo. But, I’m okay with that. We learn and grow through our challenges and I wouldn’t change a thing. 🤗🤗🤗


Whether you’re sippin’ or snipping’ BonBon Salon by Karla Jean is the place to be! ❤️

And on my days off I forage to make healing tinctures, teas and home remedies. Thank you April and Wild Herb Academy 🙏🏽 for sharing your wisdom and nature guidance!


I’ll have to get to these herbs later. I haven’t looked up what to do with sumac yet. I think maybe April sent an email covering it? I’ll have to look and see. Fingers crossed! Oh! And I found the tinyest amount of life everlasting too!!

We actually grew her hair an inch. Can you see it? How the heck? Well, by doing a CEZANNE smoothing treatment her curls and FRIZZ were relaxed in such a way that it provided extra length. How cool is that?!

How fun to be a fly on the wall while Linda was tending to this gorgeous head of hair today!! I loved shooting these after pics for her and made her promise to be a model for me sometime!!
