Do you suffer from....

Admit have it...I know I sure do!
After washing, drying, and trying to style there it is. That DARN electricity. Isn't it so annoying?
Well folks I have found an answer :) (I just am praying that you all already know this)
The answer my friends is...dun dun dun dun!!!!!!!!
Leave in conditioner!
Yes a leave in conditioner is the answer.
I used to not care about my hair...mostly cause I was lazy and also because I didn't know how to.
And that's OK if you don't cause honestly I'm still learning too.
But a leave in conditioner is one step in the right direction....another big one is GOOD shampoo.
You've all heard me rant about the proper shampoo...don't know if I changed anyone thoughts but you will love your hair once you have used it for a few months.

So try this ladies and gents switch up the hair routine.
1. try a leave in conditioner after you shower
I can say with 99% accuracy that if you hate your hair before you will love your hair after!

365 days of hair

There are a few blogs that I follow such as Miss Ashley & Miss Sam and they are doing this thing that sounds really interesting.
It's called 365 days of me.
What you do is take a picture of you each day for a full year.
It's really cool to look at the pictures and see changes and such.
Well on my break about 10 minutes ago I was thinking how much fun it would be to twist it and show you how my hair changes for a full year! Wouldn't that be kinda cool?
We can watch how hair color fades and how fast hair grows...the works!!!!
I hope that it's as cool as it sounds!!! I will be posting my first pic on Friday so stay tuned! :)

School thus far....

School so far has been GREAT! I am loving it so much :)
For those of you who don't know I am in my 3rd semester of Cosmetology school.
I'm guessing that I should be done with school by August my calculations...
Hopefully that's correct. :)
Right now I have 791/2000 hours down.......Seems like forever!
I need so many men's haircuts before I can graduate....
I have 7/67 complete.....
But I just started on my blue sheet last semester so it shouldn't be far...right?
I am working on them now so don't worry!!! :) I will be done with 60 cuts by August 2012 :)
Wish me luck!!!!!!

(My barberin blue sheet that needs to get done before I'm done)

The end is near.......gulp.

Tomorrow we start...dun dun dunnnnnnnnn. Anatomy. I'm a little nervous. This is a big chapter that I would REALLY like to do good on. I will be frank with you all. I suck at remembering things, and testing, and staying awake at 7am. HELP ME! What are some good study tips to remember anatomy? Can you give me advice? I am going to try my hardest but I am worried that I will freeze up. Help anyone????

What face shape do you have?

Have you ever looked at your face?...I mean REALLY looked at your face?
Ever notice a haircut that looks AWFUL on you? I know I have!
Today in barbering on my down time I had to analyze face shapes. The main face shapes are....








Heart face shapes...
  • Keep volume at chin and little to NO volume at top
  • Curls help to soften features
Diamond face shapes...
  • Keep narrow sides & fullness at chin
  • BOB is the best to soften.
Oval face shape...
  • Lucky for you, you can get away with most hairstyles
Round face shape...
  • Asymmetrical hair styles distract from roundness
  • Add height to top and have sides wispy
Square face shape:
  • Volume is needed on top of head & narrowness at sides
  • Curly and wispy textures around face soften the boldness
Oblong face shape...
  • Long curly hair create the softness
  • A bang can shorten the look
Pear face shape...
  • If you have long hair it should reach past your jaw line
  • Curly hair and wispy sides can take away harshness of angles.
Another thing to remember is that NO ONE'S face is perfect! But every one's is BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think I ruined your hair :(

Be proud of me!!!!!!! :)
I did a WHOLE head weave on my sista and it looked AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
and get this I did the ENTIRE THING BY MYSELF!!!!! :):):):) And finished with 45 mins to spare :)
That may not seem like a big deal to anyone that has never done hair before but it's HUGE to me since I am not as fast as I wish I was.
I started at 8:30 and finshed the weave, haircut, and style at 11:10 :) YES I am that good :)
And it looked AWESOME!!!!!!! My camera is being stupid so pics will come :)

So here it is Brandee!!!!!!! :)
Carrots are SO good
Carrots are so Healthy

Uh...English please!!

So I had mid-terms today...and let's just say I really had no idea what I was doing. Not going to lie to you.
Yep. Pathetic. I know...
So about 2 weeks ago the instructors posted the mid-term on the board in front of the Cosmo lab.
I'm not sure about the other girls but it looked as if it were in russian. A thermal Style.
Yeah drew a complete blank on that one.
Finally a instructor explained what it was in I guess dumb english. Finally got it!
So mid-terms didn't go as bad as I thought they would :) HOORAY!!!!
Hopefully I did it right...they didn't say I di anything wrong...:) I switch over to Barbering on Monday :)
Look out MEN here I come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My best thinking is done when I'm half asleep....

It's true. I do my best thinking when I'm half asleep.
And last night I thought that my thinking was real AMAZING until I woke up this morning and realized it was the dumbest thing I have ever thought haha!
Do you do this? think when your asleep and think it's real good stuff? Anyways...
Let me give you the situation.
I was lying in bed last night after I said my prayers. I've been praying about when I will find the right guy for me and every time I get some thought to a year.
A year until something will happen whether it's meeting Mr. Right or I go out on a date (I hope not that long) or idea. So a year until somthing happens.
Well I was thinking about this, while I was half asleep. Not a good idea because this is the quote that I came up with...
" You have to find someone to be imperfectly perfect with." I know right? hahahaha I think about it now and I'm kinda embarassed cause it sounds so dumb but whatever. Late night thinking is AWESOME!!! :)

Hair...ya's what's on your head...

I was thinking and contemplating where the idea of cosmetology came from...why I decided this is the thang for me!
It was mostly my ex.
I knew (for personal reasons) that I would have to work the rest of my life. Even though I wanted so badly to be a stay at home mom, I knew that it wouldn't be possible if I were to marry my ex.
So I started to look around at what jobs would be fun and easy to do while being a mom...somthing flexable.
I played with the idea of a school teacher, but learned that I can't handle kids for that long in a small inclosed space.
(learned this from my semester of "student teaching" at Snow)
So that was out of the question.
Don't get me wrong! I LOVE KIDS!!! Just not teaching them...playing with them.
So one saturday I went to the Lovely Jessica for a haircut. She has an AWESOME salon in the basement of her home. She is able to be a stay at home mom while doing hair.
I thought as I watched her 'maybe I can do this...'
So that Monday I went onto SLCC website and began doing research on Cosmetology and Barbering...
Ever since that moment I have ABSOLUTLY loved hair! I can't get enough of it! I wish I could do it all the time!
Since starting in Aug. 2010 I have broken things off with the ex but I am still finishing my license. Now I am doing it for me! NO one else! The man that I marry may have a wounderful job that allows me to stay home with our kids...but I still want to do hair from my's an AWESOME feeling chainging the life of someone through hair!!!!

Hagga Mattress sale turned into Mattress Warehouse sale :)

Well Hagga Mattress pretty much only had crap. There I said it. Crap!
The mattress's in my price range were rocks. OUCH! So I went to Mattress Warehouse and boy am I glad I did!!!
They gave me a KILLER deal on a Pillow top no name mattress!!!! $399 for the set. It was better then a simmons that we tried out before at Ashley Furniture. And A TON cheaper!!!! :)
I will post pics once I get time to take one :)
Wanna hear a great mattress shopping story???
So When the manager told me what the price of the mattress set would be and after I tried it out I decided that I wanted it so...
We start the paperwork...
The salesman calls over to the warehouse to make sure they have it (and they did)
Warehouse man finds out how much the Manager sold set for and asks to speak with the manager.
So Salesman put Warehouse man on speaker phone so everyone can hear.
Warehouse man: "DON'T GIVE IT TO HER AT THAT PRICE!!!!"
Manager: "Your on speaker phone!!"
Warehouse man silent...knowledge that customer's heard what he said: "Tell them they are getting a killer deal."
Manager: "Don't tell me how to run my store!"
Manager slams phone shut HARD and tosses it on the desk.
Me sitting on chair at desk hearing every word.
And YES it was a killer deal :)

Hagga Mattress SALE!!!

So I sleep in a twin bed and even though the mattress is super comfy I need a bigger bed. It's just not comfy to sleep on a small bed and almost fall out every night. Plus my feet hang over the end...awesome!
So my parents have this AWESOME old bed fram that is metal and tarnished!!! Super AWESOME!!!! but there is no mattress that fits. PS it's a full....not HUGE but better then my little twin bed.
So this weekend Hagga Mattress is having a sale...AND I AM GOING!!!! HOORAY!!!
I think it was a sign because I was thinking about asking if I could use it once my parents sell there house but once I asked the commercial came on right before I left for school...I believe it was a sign! That I should be able to find 2 and use the bed this weekend!!!!!!!! YAHOO!!! I hope I can find something for a good price :)
But does anyone know of a cheap mattress place just in case?

Hair and all that Jazz :)

I keep forgetting that this blog is mostly about my cosmetology school adventure....
I'm not very good about doing that am I?
Honestly nothing much has been going on at school.
Being week 3 and after Memorial Day school has been so slow.
Not sure why...
I've done pretty much nothing this week besides my punches (for those of you who don't know what those are they are certain assignments like colors and up do's etc that have to be completed by mid-terms).
It kind of sucks but oh well.
I have 6 more left to do by 6/22 :) I am so proud of my self for getting them done so fast!!!
woot woot!!!
My mama and sista are coming in next week to get there hair did!!!! I'll post pics of there BEAUTIFUL hair!!!! :) Peace!
Found this and I loved her honesty!!!!
Maybe that is why I love her :)

Naked much????

Yes I was recently naked at the airport.
not really hahaha :)
but pretty darn close.
I decided that for memorial day weekend I wanted to join my mamasita and my sista in Las Vegas to visit some family!!
Well my mama and sista left friday afternoon at about 5ish.....lucky me I had work until 9 that night!
They were planning on spending the night in Cedar City then drive the rest of the way Saturday Morning.
So I decided to leave Salt Lake at 8:30 am Saturday morning and they would pick me up when they got to the airport.
Well I got to the airport at about 6:45-7:00 just in case I had to wait in the Memorial Day airport traffic.
First of all this was my first time going to the airport by myself.
In terminal 2.
That's when the fun began.
Well I'll admit it...I got lost.
Yep. Pretty much the smallest airport in the country and I get lost.
I couldn't find the security and side note....there are no signs that distingished where security is! How do they expect me to find it?!
After 5 minutes of walking around so lost and confused I saw a pilot :) so I followed him...lo and behold you have to go upstairs.
So I hop in line (ps the guy checking my ID was very cute :)) and get checked with my ID.
I get in line and notice "THE NAKED MACHINE"
Yep it was right in front of me.
So I put all my belongings in 2 totes and take off my shoes. And I get forced into "THE NAKED MACHINE" line.
And of course with my luck there is a creepy bald white guy behind the screen watching my nakedness.
And of course you get to stand like a dumb with your legs streched far apart and your arms way above your head for 5 seconds.
Not long right?
WRONG when your NAKED!
Whatever happened to the right to privacy?
Well thanks to Osama that went out the window!
But I figure that a naked pic of me in a guys head for a minute is better then a full on hands on search...even more akward.
So watch out when you travel and be ready for...
