Here's a Funky Introduction of How Nice I am

Posted by Tasha Morris on

No, this isn't your typical hair blog post. I'm not that girl. Who I am is Tasha Morris. For as long as I recall my hair is my mood. If it's unkept, I'm unbothered. Let me get it done though and I'm walking around like a peacock trying to get seen. I have always been a little corny, a whole lot nerdy and always passionate about the things I like. Hair is one of them. Now let me tell you a little bit about me.
I'm a mom to three adult children. My oldest is disabled and for most of their childhood I stayed home, supporting them and their activities. Rejoined the workforce but never a traditional job. I'm a hustler, always have been. Before the kids I would keep two or three jobs. One of them was at a beauty supply store in the neighborhood for a very nice Korean family. We had the largest variety of hair in the city. I learned a lot from them. I also procured customers because of my knowledge of the product and my braiding ability. I learned to braid after getting my hair done from a college friend. When it was time to redo it I went to the supply store and purchased the hair and was just able to do it. Well, I may add. So when I left school and went home when I wasn't working I would braid people's hair at their place. I eventually added sew in skills when a well known stylist came to me to do her braid down then proceeded to walk me through sewing a few of her tracks in. From there it was on and popping. I would work 4 ten hour days at the beauty supply then part time hours at the mall and on my off days was braiding hair. So much hair for so many years I would dream of scalp at night. LOL I stopped braiding regularly after I started my family.
I started cosmetology school at world famous Pivot Point Academy Chicago but with three little ones, with the oldest being special needs I did not complete the program. However while in school I attended Taliah Waajid Seminar learning 17 different styling techniques. Although my professional aspirations were cut short and I took a what seemed to be an indefinite break from doing what I loved, I have found a way to get back into the industry that I am passionate about. Hair. How to style it, grow it, nurture it. Making it look good however you dress it. Looking forward to sharing with and learning from y'all. One.
