Childhood Memories

As a child, I loved glamour; from dolls, to makeup, to high-heel shoes, and princess gowns. The only dolls I would play with had to have hair. And the reason why is because I loved, and still do love doing hair. I would literally sit my dolls in a line and talk to them like they were my clients in a salon. I would ask them questions like, “how do you want it this time Mrs. Cabbage Patch?’ Now I wouldn’t say that my passion for doing hair now is as serious as it was when I was younger.

I even had a little cash register with fake coins and dollar bills that I would use to collect my money after serving them. My clients left my shop as happy customers with their nails polished, hair beautifully styled and sometimes even make-up done too.

My whole life changed one day my mother bought me a manikin head with real human hair. I fell in love with that manikin the first time I stroked her hair with my brand new comb and brush set that came with it. And to top it off it was a black manikin head. It was my 13th birthday and my mother felt as though I was too old for baby dolls. I named my manikin Diamond. Diamond wore all the new hairstyles and I would post them on MySpace.

To my surprise this started a whole new world for me....
