Yep... it's true! I'm going to cut my Sisterlocks. I have already tracked down my hairstylist from back in the late 90s using the Internet no doubt. I called the old salon and found that he didn't work there anymore. Further, no one there had kept up with him. Thankfully, somebody knew who I was talking about when I described him as I remembered him from back in the day. Luck for me, he had the distinct characteristic of traditional locs. I referred to him by his first name. (Can you believe I never even really knew his LAST NAME? Then again, maybe I did but had forgotten it.) All I KNEW FOR SURE WAS that I LOVED how he used to style-cut my relaxed hair.
So, naturally since I've been thinking about cutting my Sisterlocks-- not all OFF, but in long layers-- he was my FIRST choice for the job.
It was also lucky finding a working number for him online. Praise the Lord! When I contacted him by phone, guess what?! (I disrupted lunch with his sister, but...) He remembered me! It's been 10 years since I was his client. We chatted afterwards by text messaging. I can't wait to meet him again face-to-face.
You KNOW I'll post pics of my before and after. Hopefully, he'll let me photograph him for my blog!
