I’m going to sum this up by saying no matter what Angela says, I have helped her develop and grow as a hair stylist. It doesn’t matter what anyone says about me; God has the last word. My goal, daily, is to follow His leading. I’ll admit that our work ethic is very different; however it’s not for me to change her. You can’t control or change people; I have to allow God to do the transformation. As of now, I’ve decided to keep her on in the salon because she is a talented stylist. I also want to give her another chance to see where this goes. I’m still trying to figure this whole “Angela” situation all out. God has gifted me in this hair industry, and in the meantime, I must maintain focus for the rest of the staff, my business and our clients.
Working in this industry with high-end clients there’s always some kind of “hair emergency” right around the corner. On the previous episode, actress Shari Headley came to get a short cut in an effort to achieve a new look and to reinvent herself. A day after I hacked off her gorgeous mane, she got called in to do a reshoot for a film that she had worked on previously. I had to give her what she needed! Thank God for good working relationships; Shari, Jas and I packed up and headed out to go work a miracle! Fortunately, I was able to get a wig unit made for Shari, took her back to my salon cut and styled her and she was off to her reshoot. There’s always a creative way to recover from a hair fiasco.
I was extremely disturbed by Anthony and China’s behavior while I was away. They both were completely out of line acting that way in front of salon clients. I often speak to the level of professionalism that I expect in my salon. That day, the two of them were a poor representation of professionalism. I don’t want to feel as if my salon loses its integrity just because I’m not present. I can only hope that Anthony and China learn how to get along and be respectful in the presence of our clients.
I still can’t believe that Terry and Jas set me up on a blind date; however, I appreciate them for looking out for me to help keep me balanced. One can’t live life with “all work and no play.” However it’s hard dating with the career that I have; I’m always on the go. I want to be fair to whoever comes into my life by being available to make the commitment to investing the time in developing a relationship. I’ll admit Frank was a very good looking guy! I’m looking forward to seeing what comes of our meeting.
