I woke up and reached for my cell. I saw that I had one message. It was from my friend and longtime client Michael July, author of Afros: A Celebration Of Natural Hair (#Afrosthebook on Instagram). I saw this Instagram photo and before I could even read what he wrote, I noticed the number in the upper left hand corner...the amount of <3 that this photo had received so far...I think I saw about 886 likes! WOW!!!
Then I read his message to me:
naturalhairdoescare Michael July, Author of @afrosthebook, has the serious locbraid going on! #naturalhairdoescare #anuessentials #springhairaffair #tameyourtresstuesday #locstar #NHDCMen #NHDCHomme
" This photo was taken around 9pm tonight at Khamit Kinks. Someone just sent it to me and said I'm an Instagram hit. Lol"
I'd say you're an Instagram hit also Michael July aka Mayor of Brooklyn LOL!!!
After reading his text, I opened up my Instagram #yendysnef to see who posted the image. I found the #naturalhairdoescare Instagram site. I clicked the tab to follow the page of course, I <3 the photo, then added my comments .
I love that pic! I remember the first time I actually gave Michael that 'fishtail.' He liked it right away. We always do a 'hat check' after I'm finished just to make sure that his hat sits just right! Then we do a high five LOL. It's been his signature style since that day...
I'm sooo excited to see all the love that this style and image has received!
Read Michael's comment on that photo:
