Mature and maturing locks

Here are two photos of my clients (and good friends!) showing how beautiful locks are in all their rich diversity, as they mature.. Akos, on the extreme right in the bottom photo, has MASSES of hair and it is taking a while for her sisterlocks to condense. She was about about fourteen months locked in this photo. Aj and Abby (L to R) have traditional locks which they've been wearing for about four and two years respectively.

I love my sisterlocks!

My locks are now past shoulder length and I am enjoying wearing them freestyle (right) or with a a bit of a curl from a braid-out (left). They are so easy to style and add instant glamour even when they are badly in need of a retighten as they do now, Amba I do miss you!

Weddings and Babies

Its been ages since I last posted anything! I've been busy taking care of my new baby girl Kukua since January this year and recently attending a spate of weddings. That's my mother on the bottom and Miss Koo and I! My hair has grown quite a bit this year and the orange has faded to a dull bronze colour that I prefer-I never quite got round to doing a rinse! Next time I colour though I think I will see a professional.
