a WHOLE WEEK…

I’ve been on the floor for a little over a week now and I am T-I-R-E-D!!!.

SHEESH!  lol.  I’ve had clients every night – some scheduled, some walk-ins, all amazing.  I’ve been busy busy busy and let me tell you – SPEED is important.

It took me an almost an entire class period (630-915) to do a manicure, pedicure and cut. – she was supposed to get color too but we just didn’t have time.  We had to reschedule her for another day.  But, doesn’t her cut look CUTE?

Cute!

My averages are looking good though.  If I really start hustling, i may make student designer this month!  Heck yeah buddy!  Thanks to a little help from my friends, of course 🙂

Flirty Layers

In other news, on Saturday we had our very first “Rehearsal” Class.  We were supposed to be learning about weaves, tracks, extensions, and wig making – but, we didn’t have any hair so Ms. Isabell couldn’t show us.  She did promise to show us next Saturday.  Oh, and we finally got to crack open our Workbooks that we got in our kits forever ago.  So, we spent the first 3 1/2 hours of Saturday working in our workbooks and discussing the reason people wear wigs/extensions like cancer, alopecia, balding, thinning hair, fashion, etc.

That afternoon – I was able to buy my lunch by using the tips I had made throughout the week – so that was cool…lol.  I just keep my tip money in my apron, that way come Saturday, I don’t have to run to the bank!

After lunch we got to perform student services on each other, so I let Jessika cut my hair.  off.  a lot. lol.  Ms. Isabell showed her a way to comb the hair back in order to do a swing bob and it came out pretty amazing.   I plan on eventually going back brown, but right now, i’m kinda enjoying being natural-ish.

In other news, Student Council has finally gotten kicked off.  We had our first official meeting last week to discuss the Newsletter (ours is called “Snips & {Tips}” – first issue went out on the first!) and fundraising ideas.  We are kicking off Penny Wars next week and I was lucky enough to be able to get a trophy donated to us so the winning class can display it!  It’ll be Workshop v. Rehearsal and I’m super excited about it!

So that’s what I’ve been up to 🙂  Hope you’re loving it too!
