The Diary of a Lagos Mum

While I was in London, I went to my hairdresser, Sam – at Le Beautique Spa.

Last summer he was telling me about this keratin treatment that he does and how amazing it is. I planned to do it before I came back to Lagos in November, but just didn’t have the time.

I mentioned in my previous post that it was such a pleasure to go to a ‘proper’ salon again. I haven’t been to my hairdresser in Lagos for quite a long time – mostly because we haven’t really gone out much lately, but also because… Well… he’s a bit of a twat.

Sunday FunDay

Today is the day, I have so much on my mind. Blog, Newsletter even being asked to contribute to someone else’s paper or blog. 2014 has been a big success story for my business. I just opened my new studio in Beverly Hills. Crazy I know. I never dreamed of working in Beverly Hills in my own studio. Lucky enough I have a studio mate to keep the cost down. The beginnings of a new business are filled with purchases of unexpected things.

My desire is to be in my own private studio. Not sure when that will happen. My vision is December. Excited to see my growth. This year I’ve been networking in a completely different way. Meaning, last year I networked with The West Hollywood Chamber and BNI. I learned a lot. I was constantly around the same group of people. Of course, I was feeling super loved and comfortable.

Group networking wasn’t working to build my business. The one or two clients I would get was just paying all of my fees to network.

So my new networking gig is a place called DryBar. They only offer blowouts. Most of the time you connect or you don’t. Basically, you can blowout some hair with a bit of personality. If I feel like I’m blending well with my client I will ask them about their color. DryBar is the perfect networking gig. I meet all sorts of professional. I pass my card on to very few of them. Always selling my studio in Beverly Hills…
