During the Thanksgiving Holiday my daughter with the assistance of her boy-friend John put hair extensions in using the hair glue. When sleeping the extensions would get matted and brushing them out got really hard. She’s a back sleeper which wasn’t helping. The back was turning into a rat’s nest. She cut off the extensions,but what was matted she didn’t. Then shampooing she was able to get most the glue out, and more of the extensions, but what she couldn’t get out turned into a huge massive dread-lock.
She named the mass, “Frank”. A colleague of hers gave her the name of a stylist who he knew would be able to save some of the hair. Daughter had resigned herself to getting a Faux Hawk. I imagined her with a huge spiked Trojan Warrior Mohawk! I didn’t realize how matted her hair had become. When she told me about the Faux Hawk I asked to see her hair. She came over and I was pretty stunned. I tried to comb some of it out using baby oil. I got a good bit out of her crown, but after an hour. I gave up, and told her I’d take care of the bill. She made the appointment the next day. She was really lucky getting in to see Faten on Christmas Eve Day!
Here she is at Salon Mona Lisa, Los Gatos, CA. waiting for Faten aka Cori the Stylist
“Frank” the hair-ball. Faten heard the description, but didn’t think it would be this bad!
The Pull Out. This you pull out not comb!
In just under an hour Faten had it all out, combed and ready for shampoo, and deep conditioning! Amazing!!
One more look before the shampoo Daughter said, “It’s a fro! and ” I look like Carrot Top!” The other stylists and clients were just as impressed as we were that Faten was able to get it all out too. We thought it would have to be cut out and or shaved.
After the shampoo and conditioning. Isn’t the transformation amazing! Instead of a Faux Hawk she got a sassy little A-Line Bob.
Daughter’s head is a bit tender from all the pulling and tugging, but she’s thrilled and say’s Christmas came early for her. She’s very happy, and I’m so thankful she didn’t end up with a Mohawk!
Thank you Faten! You made our day, and Daughter’s Christmas a happier one!
