Good Day, let me just start this blog of by saying

“I am not my hair
I am not this skin
I am not your expectations no no
I am not my hair
I am not this skin
I am a soul that lives within” INDIA.ARIE

True story, today while out sourcing inventory for the Winter  season ahead I had four random folk comment on my hair

1st RANDOM on Good Hope Road, SE: “Hey lady, want you do something with all that hair like comb it. Is that all your own hair?”

RESPONSE:WOW, right of course my response being sassy and cynical as I am was ” I am doing something with it, I am wearing it.  You know like your wearing your hair on your head.  Is yours real, brother?”

You had to see his face drop with shame. However, I notice a growing response to me with my random hairstyles. Why??? I never ask, It is unimportant to me what one thinks or feels about my bald, long, medium length, natural, blonde, red or pink hair unless I am blocking your view at a ceremony, maybe depending on if it’s standing room only. It just really depends on the individuals approach to remedy the obstruction of the HAIR.

I mean really….

2nd RANDOM on CIRCULATOR, DC:  Hey beautiful you rockin’ that hair. It fit’s you.


Notice he didn’t care whether it was mine or not. He just felt the need to compliment me  on what he liked.

Coolbeans. Compliment accepted!

3rd RANDOM at Anacostia Metro Station: A lady walks around to the front of me as I sit on the platform seat awaiting my train she says, ” I just had to walk around and see who was the face behind the hair. You are working the look girlfriend and I’m glad you are cute, too. If you weren’t right, I would tell you!

DAMN….but candor is OK in my book as long as it’s not malicious.

RESPONSE: As she startled me a bit, “Thank you and what if I wasn’t cute” and then I just sat there smiling.

I guess this Chaka Khan, Tina Turner AKA Craze Chameleon Aisha Keys hair is a “HIT”, huh.

What you think??? WINNING

4th RANDOM walking down the street: A passer buyer yells out the window ” Great hair. You need a ride?…well you still look good!

RESPONSE: I just smiled and continued my journey.

As most of you know hair and fashion go hand in hand. I never really have a clue what will be next with my daily LIFE none the less my hairstyles. So moving along “don’t sweat the small stuff”. If it feels right go with it, “TO WEAVE OR NOT TO WEAVE, that is the question?”

As I always say,  go with your what your feeling…In my world I am the OPENING ACT, the HEADLINER and the AFTER PARTY…IDLEWILD.  

Good people at the end of the day make sure to make self happy, first and always. Can one help it if you’re an anomaly?
