hair glue

It’s time we talked about the effects of glue ins and who uses it. Well, as a licensed professional  hair stylist I have learned a lot about the horrible effects of using hair glue. In the past, I have used hair glue because it was cheaper and easier to do than sewing in extensions. Cheaper isn’t always cheaper in the long run though. After, much usage of glue I experienced hair loss and lots of glue residue in my hair and combs. It was the worst thing ever, especially in the summer!

Many stylist tell there clients that they have to use hair glue to lay their top tracks flat. That is a lie! If you are a skilled stylist and care for your clients’ hair, you will be able to braid small enough to make a weave install look and feel natural. I have ran into many clients, that have been told that glue is necessary and now when working with them they truly notice the difference and know the truth. The top of one of my client’s head was very short and experienced a lot of breakage from using an extensive amount of Continue reading


HBK HAIR FACTS: Hair Nets for Sewins

16 Jun


So it’s only right that since I am a licensed professional Cosmetologist.. specializing in Hair weaves and braiding, that I present to you with Hair Facts . So many of my new clients have been complaining about hair loss and wondering why their hair are not growing like it use to. Well, most time its because of the sew in technique their hairstylists are using on them. This post will be mainly on Hair Nets. A lot of hairstylists suggest that clients use the Hair nets because they say its safer for the hair and that it keeps them from sewing directly on the natural hair. This is a lie!

The net is mesh and has to be sewn directly around the clients hair hair line braided and then the weave (extensions) are sewn on the net still on to and through the braids underneath. The net is only beneficial to the stylist not the client. When you are wearing a net, it leaves no room for your hair to breathe or receive hydration. When washing your hair with a net installed it helps trap soap suds and prevents the hair to dry properly. Your hair will then tangle with its self and the ridiculous amount of thread used to secure the extensions. The only time the net is Continue reading

HAIR: Indique Partner Stylist

How many people land a Job doing what they love to do and get the chance to meet amazing people? well, I had that opportunity when I was hired by Ericka Dotson of Indique Hair for the Flag Ship location in Soho, NY. Working there I learned that hair was not only a hobby it was a career for me. Working at Indique Hair groomed me in many ways, I learned how to be fashionable, apply make up and how to pick the best hair. I looked to Ericka and the rest of the staff for advice on going to school or handling difficult customers. Though I have been doing hair since I was in Middle School, as I worked at Indique as a Sales Consultant I was unable to do much but sale and refer to Partner Stylists. When I decided to go to Cosmetology School, I received support from Ericka, the Marketing Staff, fellow Liaisons, Partner Stylists and loyal clients. It made since to further my education in Hair and beauty, since so many people valued my knowledge on hair products.

Do I stay unlicensed and continue working as a customer liaison or Do I quit, get licensed and freelance? Those questions ran circles in my head for another few months, until I made my decision. I pursued my license in Cosmetology and left Indique. It was bitter sweet but I had to put my career first. After leaving I stayed in contact with most of the staff, which made it feel like I never left. Like any job you leave it will be a little awkward and iffy but when you are a good worker who has also put the company’s best interest first, only good things can come.

I wasn’t only into hair, I also founded a non-profit Yadestiny Treasure Chest, Inc. that provides clothing for underprivileged children and was trying to also get a handle on that. But I seem to be getting recognition for both hair and philanthropy. I graduated and 4 months later received my  Cosmetology License. So excited I shared the news with Ms. Dotson, it  was encouraging to have her reply to my text with: “that’s amazing!So Proud of you! You go Karyne!”. Many ex-employees aren’t privileged with receiving a Congrats from their former bosses, but that wasn’t the case with Indique. I was also asked to work with them on a few assignments as a hairstylist. Just think, if I would have never pursued my license this would not have occurred. My life after Indique is really not a life without Indique. I am now a Partner Stylist and have always remained an Indiquenista! Screenshot_2014-03-27-16-03-12-1 Screenshot_2014-03-27-16-02-50-1

Words of advice to anyone who is thinking of leaving a job, don’t leave on a bad note. Be true to yourself and do your work to the best until the end. It doesn’t pay to burn bridges, cause you never know who will present you with an opportunity in the future.
