I am so angry this morning. I had this plan to get my very first sew-in this morning. I have brought the hair (I forgot to buy thread and a needle, though; that won't happen again, lol) weeks before. I didn't want a full sew in. I just wanted to back done so that I could be able to stretch my relaxer longer. I have been so tempted to relax my hair and I am only 6 weeks. So, whenever I start getting tempted, I will go and wet my hair. Sad, but it is the only thing that stops me from relaxing. Also, at six weeks, I do not have much NG, so any relaxer at this point would be pointless, lol.
Back to why I am mad. I have had this hair appointment to get this sew-in for about two weeks. Well, here it is, the day I am scheduled to get it done, and my stylist hasn't contacted me. She will not answer the phone. She will not answer any of my texts. I am beyond pissed. For a professional, she sure is not acting professional. I refuse to try anymore. I cannot beg people to do my hair. If I was a hair stylist, I would do things so much different. I would be on top of appointments, punctual, perform my absolute best work. Word of mouth is crucial. I am too angry to finish this post, I will come back when I calm down....
(This portion was written after the appointment)
But my stylist finally called, THE DAY OF MY APPOINTMENT. No explanation why I didn't get a call back. Oh, well. She started working on my hair immediately, so I was starting to cool down....
UNTIL I realized how she was doing my hair. First she braid only the back because I wanted my front out. She had my braids very big. Like, super big. They were so big that when she was sewing the first weft on, my braids were peeking from under the weave. Then, she started so high up on the braids. Why didn't she start a little lower, I do not know. But she started so high to where when she was done at the top, she had to go back in and add in more weave. That was also confusing and frustrating. After she was done, I went to look at my hair. I was very disappointed. For knowing her personally, I only paid 25 dollars. I honestly feel like I have overpaid for that mess. The way it was sewn it was horrific. If I wasn't care about how I was taking my hair out, I would have lost alot of hair because she sewn it in without even considering me taking it out. Sadly, after three full days, I removed that monstrous mess from my hair. I took it all out. I am totally disgusted in the time and money I have wasted. I did not take any pictures of what it looked like because I am totally embarassed by it. It was not flattering to my face or head at all. I looked really tacky about the head. The sad part about it, it was not cheap hair that I was using.
Yep, I am pissed, BUT I am highly motivated. I am more motivated now than ever to learn how to do my own sew ins. I know in my heart that if I was given the opportunity to fully learn the tricks of a good and simple sew in, I could do it alot better. I cannot bear throwing away anymore of my hard-earned money to someone who is not going to do a good job. She is a license beautician, but I guess it is true that you get what you pay for and the better things in life do not come at a cheap price. My very first sew in experience was a bust, but I am not out for the count. I am excited about learning to do my own. Hopefully, but January or February I will be ready to try again. This experience has really motivated me into becoming more independent. I am ready to rely heavily on myself again for styles.
