Hair Too{s}day


to the very first blog post of my new 
weekly tutorial

Where it's all about our tangles, trials, and total successes 
of taming our hair. 

If you want to repeat & share my trials, post your successes, or share hair do's and styles you want to see me try. Bare with me, I will be trying out different technology, video vs pictures, etc - I will always appreciate feedback and tips!
