Beauty iz Black

Author: Tafari, Sunday, October 28th, 2007 at 11:57 PM
First of all, beauty iz Black, no matter the hue, hair texture etc... Now back to the matter @ hand.

I met this 14 year old model the other day & was floored when she told me how old she was. When I entered the area where the models were getting hair & make up, he mother was blowing out her fro & she was almost in tears. I laughed inside because it reminded me of Sade when she gets her hair combed.

Being natural is not as easy & pain free as it seems.

I could not wait to show Sade the pictures of the aspiring model, so that she can know that she is not the only Black girl without chemically processed hair. Lately, Sade has been wanting to get her hair straightened or at least pressed. I had to break it to her that the only way that was going to happen, was a, over my dead body & b when she moves out of my house.

Believe it or not, I feel her but, it is important for me to let her know that her natural African gifts are the best. Mindspill

The Other Woman: Freedom @ Last

Author: Tafari, Monday, June 11th, 2007 at 5:56 AM
So to follow up to my “The Other Woman” post, this afternoon, I had my 1st appointment with Freedom to retighten my Brotherlocks.

Well, to make this quick, my appointment was FABULOUS!!! First of all, it only took me 10 minutes to get to her house, second, it only took her 2½ to complete my entire head. When she was done tightening me up, she went through and clipped off all of my frizzies.

When she was completely done, I was fucking awe of her speed and the quality of her service. I was like, I cannot believe that I was missing out on this, I mean, she did my hair literally in half the time!

I actually like the way my locks felt afterward because they were still soft and had some movement/body. More often than not my locks were kinda stiff when “Pam the Silent” did them.

When I left and called Suite Suzy to let her now I was on my way home, she tripped out and could not believe that it was so quick and we both laughed at that.
2½ hours in her chair, I am calling “Can’t Call a Nigga Back” to cancel my future that appointment because I am sticking with Freedom.

Freedom & I really hit it off I just think that our meeting months ago in Wholefoods was just meant to be. It's strange how time, space & Karma work (if you believe in this sort of thing).

So after I got off the phone I called “Pam the Silent” to break the news about me leaving her for another woman. I got her voicemail and left a message for a call back. Fast-forward 8 hours later, “Pam the Silent” calls me back and I let her know that I was making a move to “Freedom” and told her why. I told her that while our hair relationship was on perma-hold for right now, our friendship would remain no matter what! She thanked me for that and thanked me for letting her no that I found another woman.

She said that sometimes people leave her but they never say anything, they just all of the sudden stop showing up and she never knows why and not only that sometimes if she contacts them they will not respond. I suspect that this is an issue across the hair stylist/service continuum.

Since I talked with “Pam the Silent”, I feel much better and at peace.

Fast-forward 2 hours later, I am home after a quick outing in Detroit (post coming soon) and I wash my hair to be funky fresh for the week. I get out of the shower, towel dry my locks, shake my hair a little and look in the mirror, then I say, damn my hair looks fucking good, but you already knew that (I'm really not that cocky).

Side note: Mid post, I stopped to watch the final episode of the Soprano’s and what a waste of time that was. One of the biggest shows of all time goes out without a bang, how disappointing! If you watched, what did you think?

The Other Woman

Author: Tafari, Thursday, June 7th, 2007 at 3:12 AM

My Brotherlocks are a little over 3 years old now & I have been seeing the same consultant (Pam the Silent) since the beginning.

Over the past 3 years, Pam the Silent & I have grown quite close. She is truly a good friend, therapist & most importantly the woman that keeps me looking like me.

Since the price of gas has been slowly going up over the past few months, I have been feeling the need to cheat on Pam the Silent, which really has been bothering me as I have been actively seeking out a new woman to come into my life to keep my locks looking good.

The decision to leave Pam is boiling down to good old fashion economics. The trip to Pam’s place is 96 miles round trip + the 4-5 hours I spend in the chair watching movies & talking. Shit by the time it’s all said & done, getting my locks retightened takes a whole workday. Wait; I just did the math & it costs me $1,976.00 per year to see Pam, this includes hair cost, gas & travel time.

So last week I actively started looking for a consultant & decided to dial up a Freedom, who I met a few months ago at Wholefoods. When I met her I liked her instantly but at that time leaving Pam was not an option but I kept her number just in case. Well now that the option is open after I got off of work last Friday I ran home to get Freedom’s number to so that I could schedule an appointment.

It’s now 6:05pm & I dialing the number somewhat nervously, the phone rings & I get voicemail so I leave a message. Minutes later I go outside to get the mail & as I get back in the house I saw that I had a missed call & had a voicemail. I was like shit, I missed her!

Now it’s 6:09 & I call my voicemail & it was Freedom (I was like yes) but she has a bit of bad news. She told me that she was not taking any clients but referred me to a friend, who I will call “Can’t Call a Nigga Back”. That kinda bummed me out because when I want something, substitutes won’t do. I was like cool, what can I do but call “Can’t Call a Nigga Back”.

It’s now 6:15, I dial up “Can’t Call a Nigga Back” & get voicemail & leave a message for a call back. I just knew she was going to call me back soon but that was not the case. It took her like 2 days to get back with me, which threw up some red flags.

Bottom line; it is 6 days later & we are still playing phone tag, actually the game ended because I will not be chasing someone down if they can’t even call a Nigga back.

So after I got sick of the phone tag this afternoon, I called Freedom to let her know what jumped off & asked what it would take to get her to open up her availability to fit me in as a new client. All the time I was on the phone with her, my fingers were crossed hoping that she would say I can take you on.

Luckily, my finger crossing & hoping paid off because she decided to add me to her clientele & I have an appointment for this coming Sunday.

The cool thing about Freedom is she is only like 15 minutes away (less gas & time) & I hear she is pretty fast. When I talked to her today, she informed me that she finishes most of her clients in 4 hours or less, which was music to my ears! Lord knows I love Pam but she is not the quickest.

So now that I have a new lady in my life, I have to break the news to Pam. I think I will call her after my appointment Sunday. I think she will understand because it is getting hard on everyone one especially in Michigan. Gas prices are stopping me from doing a lot of shit I used to do all the time for business & pleasure. Mindspill


While I was pulling this post together I happened to check my email & saw a message from someone with a familiar name but it had been a few years since we last talked so I was like what the…

So I open up the message I found it was indeed from my good friend & former hair stylist Curtis Griffin. I mentioned Curtis on my blog before in my “Hair Theme” post, which is how he found me. He did a narcisurf (when you Google yourself) & my blog came up.

In his message he called me out & said, “If you’re going to write something about me, get someone to proof read it first.” Y’all now I don’t proofread shit (read my Ghetto Disclaimer) & usually don’t care but all of the sudden I was embarrassed as hell.

After I got over my shock, I call my friend to reconnect & we picked up right where left off years ago. Curtis was my stylist for almost 8 years & saw me trough some major life changes. Not only can this brother give the “baddest” hair cut in Detroit, he is a great friend & yes a great therapist.

The timing of his contacting me was so ironic as I am going though a stylist change. I wonder what the universe is trying to tell me???????

Curtis, if you find this post, I did try to proof read but gave up half way.

About Last Night IX

Author: Tafari, Sunday, April 8th, 2007 at 5:17 AM
A few weeks ago I purchased a few tickets for Urban Organic’s Eric Roberson concert, which was this past Thursday. I was pretty excited to see ErRo because I missed every show he did last year for one reason or another. So the timing of this event was perfect because his new album …Left was just released & I am digging it big time. His sound is consistent & his music tells you great stories of love, life & misery etc with passion. This concert would serve a “Keeping the romance alive” date for Suite Suzy & I (finally time together & no kids!!!). Anyway, I had the date all planned to start at the Centaur Bar for drinks & then dinner @ Twingo's (what a perfect agenda, drinks, dinner & good music all we need is a little lovin' afterward to really make it off the hook (TMI I know, but hey, I'm on a roll)). Well, it’s now the day of the concert & I cut out of work a little early to iron my “outfit” & to do a quick spot check aKa a hoe bath. As we was preparing to leave, I got a call from my girl who asked me if I wanted to vend at the concert & you no I said hell yeah. Basically this turned the date to work but it was all good. It’s now 730 & I am wrapping up my last French 75 (my Martini of the moment) while Suite Suzy is polishing off her Pear Martini & it’s time to get some din-din. Twenty minutes later we arrive @ Twingo's, were we enjoyed a deliciously intimate dinner. If you are in Detroit or nearby, you gotta hit this spot up. Twingo's has great service, an excellent variety of fare & the décor is very Urban Euro Chic (this is my description). Now it’s after dinner & we are headed downtown for the event. Upon arriving at Plan B (the venue), We bumped into 2 of Detroit's finest performers & friends of mine; Tanesha C. aKa ButterSoul Fly & Penny Wells, who greeted my with a very energetic BYGBABYYYYYY!!! Once we made it inside, we quickly got set up & waited for the party/concert to jump off. Sad to say but this event was running on CPT (colored peoples time) like nobody’s business & by the time ErRo went on stage, it was 12 o’muthafuckin’ clock, which means that we did not get home until like after 1am. OK tell me why the tickets say that things start @ 9??? The drive home was rough as I struggled to stay awake but we made it safely & the next day @ work I was just dragging. Over all the music was great, the crowd was chill & we made some Quench ducketts. Below are a few snapshots from outing. The boo-boo shot was taken in the bathroom @ Twingo's. When I walked in & saw that, I was like hell nall & I quickly ran back to the table to get my camera. On the 2nd shot, you can get a good look at my recently fired locks.
On another hair note; if you were wondering how I got that wavy lock look; well my secret is a braid out. In these pictures it was 2 days old. When I do a braid out, it usually last for a good 3 days before I redo it. To achieve my look; I dampen my hair then massage in a little Khoret Amen Hair Oil in & plat like 8-10 braids & rubber band them at then ends. I then let my hair air dry over night or sit under the dryer (yes I do have a hooded dryer! Is you got anthang to say bout' dat?) for about an 1½ hours (it just depends on how I am feeling). My New highlights were done by boosting a hand full of locks then I did a Black Cherry Sebastian Colourshine to get my red hot highlights.

Bees and Things and Flowers

Author: Tafari, Tuesday, March 20th, 2007 at 10:58 PM MindspillIt’s officially springtime (well all damn most), so this means that my spring bulbs are ready to awaken from their frozen slumber. I am a big perennial gardener & my favorite time of the year is spring, which is when I get to smell the sweet perfume of hyacinths surrounding my home. I also get excited about my sunny daffodils that command my full attention as they shine as bright as the afternoon sun.

Springtime also means that I need to prepare to clean out the fall & winter debris that has collected in my gardens over the past few months & this is never too fun but now that Olivia & Sade are older I recruit them to assist me and work the hell out of them.

For the last 2 years I have been lucky enough to have a family of robins make the nest along my cedar fence so I am hoping that they again return. I love looking at the brightly colored eggs & awaiting the arrival of the chicks & then enjoying them for the summer as they hang around the backyard eating grubs that try to destroy my lawn.

The spring also means that this bitch ass family of rabbits will be back out to eat my precious lilies again before they even have a chance to bud. One of these years I am going to kill cook & eat them (not really, I hate rabbit but I might kill them).

To celebrate all that I am looking forward to over the next few months, tomorrow, I am taking the day off work, getting my locks tightened & if I can still get a ticket; I will be at the Angel Bofill concert downtown Detroit.

One thing I hate I mean don’t like about spring is Easter, Oh how I dread the thought of spending money on Easter dresses for the girls, Easter basket grass all over the fucking floor for months (you can never get rid of it all). I also dread the faux fashion, childrens play & the long drawn out sermon @ church. Mindspill

The Failed Business Trip

Author: Tafari, Saturday, March 3rd, 2007 at 6:38 AM
Last week Cousin Dee & I planned on attending the March Black Business Expo, which is a monthly event held the 1st Friday at the Charles H. Wright African American History Museum. Cousin Dee & I have been planning to go to the BBE for the last 8+ months & never seem to make it. The BBE is a networking & informational series for Black entrepreneurs on the rise in Detroit. So this time we made a promise to be in the house this past Friday.

Our goal was to go to the Centaur Bar for some after work cocktails to loosen us up to network with our fellow entrepreneurial peers. Actually anything that we may plan to do on Friday will start with a trip to the Centaur Bar (one of our favorite spots).

Since I got off my slave job before Cousin Dee I made a few stops in Detroit, starting with a trip to Tulani Rose to get some Khoret Amen Hair Oil, which I really just started to use. I really like the oil (obviously, since I just paid $22 for it) but there is something in it that makes me itch a little but I deal with it because I really like the smell, especially after I wash my locks.

So after my hair oil stop I made my way downtown to see my homegirl Zana @ Spectacles. While there talking shit & convincing her to come to the Centaur Bar after she closed her shop, the UPS guy came, not really a big deal right.?. Well it was a big deal because the UPS guy just handed Zana a box filled with Eric Roberson’s new CD …Left.

It was so ironic that it just came in because just Thursday night while on the Honey Soul message board, I was asking if the CD was available for download online & was let down to find out that it is not. Since it was not available, I was about to order it, but something told me to wait. So lucky me, I got a hot out of the box copy for only $10.

Side note: I am listening to …Left as I pull this post together & it is tight as hell.

After leaving Zana’s shop & as I make my way to my car, I saw a little sign that read “Nations Bean Pies” so you know I was like HELLLLLLL NALLLLLLL. I am so happy that grabbed my camera before I left the house.

Now it is 6pm & I dipped from Zana over to the Centaur Bar, perched myself & ordered my 1st Martini (a French 75) & waited for Cousin Dee & friends to show up.

After everything was said and done (6 Martinis later), Zana did show, so did my girl Gina X along with her friend who I will call The Unknown Ingénue & off course Cousin Dee, we set off 2 chicken satay plates, a plate of mini lamb chops, a plate of Thai spring roles & 4 plates of chicken falafels, (before you same damn, yall ate all of that, theses were only Tapas & not like a real person’s portions) & we never made it to the BBE event.

We all were pretty bummed that we missed the BBE event but for some reason we could not stop ordering drinks, talking shit & enjoying snacky snacks.

We made a plan to try again for April’s BBE event, but you best believe we will mos def stop @ the Centaur Bar 1st.

Here are a few shots from tonight & yes they are mostly of me but I just want to show off my new beautiful Mud Cloth Dashiki from Senegal. If you are interested in knowing more about Mud Cloth, the Smithsonian has a cool site here.

God knows how I love a good night out & a safe trip home to my family.

The Hair Theme

Author: Tafari, Thursday, November 9th, 2006 at 6:55 PM

This morning while driving to work I was cruising along listening to music as usual when my old Hair Theme came on, “Mr. Lover Man” by Shaba Ranks. This became my hair theme the first time I walked out of the Nathan Influence Salon downtown Detroit in the Renaissance Center with my hair straighter than any white counterpart.

It’s kinda funny because as I as walking out the song was playing & it was like I was moving in slow motion through the salon with everybody staring at me like what the fuck did he get a page boy for & why is it straighter looking better than my shit (I heard the whispers) but I did not care. As I approached the door still in slow motion it opened and a gentle gust of wind blew my freshly permed hair around like I was in some type of Pantene commercial & I liked it in a strong Black man kinda way.

"Who are they to judge us simply because OUR hair is long"

When Mr. Lover Man comes on I am always taken back to that unforgettable slow motion gentle breeze moment, which brings a smile to my face. To this day I still enjoy a gentle breeze through in my hair. The man responsible for my progressive look was non other that Curtis Griffin, a hair stylist, therapist & good friend for 7 years. Curtis got me hooked on Sebastian ColourShines Reddissimo, which I still use to this day.

In 1999, I went to Curtis and we looked at each other dead in the eyes & said are you sure which I replied yes to (he could read my mind). 20 minutes later I was bald. I was happy with my decision but I did this in the winter & my head was so cold.

For weeks I would go to look into the mirror expecting to see my long hair but it was never there, I had a few nightmares which annoyed Suite Suzy & at one point a cried in my sleep (a bitch cry). It took me a while to get over the fact that I had no hair but I survived. I continued to see Curtis for my barber service until he retired from the business to get a legit 9-5.

I am not sure if I am weird because I have such a string attachment to my hair because I am a guy but…
