If you’ve been following me on Instagram and Twitter, you probably already know that I have a new hair stylist. And OMG is she NICE!!!
Camille London is a master stylist who I met at an event earlier last month. I had never met her before, yet I almost knocked a few people down just to get to her to ask, “Who does your hair?” When she told me that she did it herself, I was floored. A few weeks later, I was in her chair.
Camille own the Glamm Hair and Lash Bar [1516 N Capital St NW] which is located just at the crossroads between Florida Ave and North Capitol st. When I walked in, I noticed that she was already working on a few clients but each client has a perfect head of hair.
My goodness, does this woman have skills.
Clearly, Camille is a master weaveologist who easily blends extensions with natural hair. One reason why I loved her hair so much was because the blending was so perfect. I couldn’t really tell that it was a weave. (The only giveaway was the color, FIYAH Red!) But for all of her other clients, I had absolutely no idea!
So, when I finally sat down in her chair, I knew my blend would be perfect.
And sure enough, it was.
The process went something like this:
Camille cornrowed my hair straight back and then sewed the loose ends of the braid up towards each cornrow. She also added a few pieces of synthetic hair to the cornrows along my edge line. This was perfect for me since my edges are slightly thin.
Next, she applied a keratin treatment to my leave-out, which helped a lot during the blending process.
Then, Camille sewed in my hair track by track.
After that was done, she shaped my hair with some scissors.
And finally, she ironed my leave out (which is part of the keratin treatment process) and wanded the hair, leaving me with some wonderful waves.
OMG! I love my hair!
Oh, and I forgot to tell you that before she sewed in my hair, she bleached the tips just enough to give me a little flash of color.
In case you’re wondering about my hair type, I am a 3c/4a. (my kitchen get’s kind of course.) And my weave is none other than Dache Hair’s Russian Wavy. I LOVE this hair. It behaves JUST like my natural hair. Which is important when I want my hair to continue to blend long after I leave Camille’s chair. Plus, the hair never sheds, tangles, matts or loses it’s natural wave pattern. So it lasts forever.
Anyway, Thank God For Camille! I will be in her chair every week from here on out!
