Something about Merry






Today, I got an email from Merry (of Meredith Harper weddings), telling me that one of her friends had died. I was suprised by this because when Meredith and I were in LA to shoot My Fair Weddings we had gone to see her friend Cleo. What you may not be able to see about Meredith is her charitable heart. Cleo was an elderly woman that Meredith had befriended a few years ago but who she always had the time for in her busy life. When I first met Cleo the first thing she said to me was "bullshit", when Meredith introduced me... "This is Marque"...most people may not know that Marque is not my given name. And, if people think it no one says that to me. Especially in this brass and blunt way, which was my impression of Cleo. I did proceed to tell her my given name which I really only reserve for my loved ones. Even with this from Cleo there was something endearing about her. But, what was more endearing to me was the time that Meredith took to spend with Cleo. Not to mention, we were on our way to a friends for a pool party. Who knew that Meredith had a 85 year friend that she spent time with. And, I could tell that this was not charity this was who Meredith was and Cleo was her friend. This really reinforces the saying, "be kind to your elders".

Baby Hair

Baby hair is not just for the Jackson's (as in Michael Jackson). All children have baby hair and I don't mean the hair around their hair line. Your hair actually will go through many changes in your life time if you live long enough. The hair that you were born with is not the hair that you have when you are 1 years old. I consider the hair between when we are born and 1 your baby hair. Please, parents pay attention!! Now, after 1 years old the next change is puberty, which is between 11 and 16 years old. The hair after puberty will last until middle age. I have heard so many black parents say that a relaxer ruined their childs hair. It's just not true unless your child ate the relaxer. Usually people of color hair gets thicker and more course. Children that are born blonde usually get darker during this time. Your hair grows from within, therefore you would have to eat the relaxer (which I doubt) . What did happen is your hair changed at puberty and your child needed that relaxer. If you do damage your hair from the outside all you have to do is cut it off and grow it again. Now there are things that you can do to your hair from the inside good and bad, which I'm going to save that for another time. Stay tuned I have much to discuss about hair.

Yes, I said it!

Red Bottoms

Christian Louboutin, wants a court order to stop other designers from putting Red Bottoms on their shoes. He better get a good legal team. I bought a Red Bottom Donna Karan shoe in 1994. And, I still own the shoe in it's box. Was, Christian Louboutin even in business in 1994? I don't think so... LOL... I'm suprised that Christian Louboutin has been getting away with bullying his competitors for so long. He has sued YSL in April and they counter sued. Now Dior is coming out with a line of Red Bottom Shoes and Christain wants an injunction. Dior, I will testify....in my Red Bottom Donna Karan's....LOL.... Donna Karan must remember making that shoe. Donna Karan I say you testify.... Well, anyway I can't wait to see the out come of this battle of the shoe Diva's.

Let the Games Begin!!

My Fair Weddings





Meredith Harper Weddings did My Fair Weddings with David Tutera. Of course Meredith called me to do the hair. The setting was a beautiful home in Hills of LA. The Bride wanted sabby chic for her wedding. And, that's what she got. David Tutera really captured the shabby chic look with the ease of a pro. But, her hair and make-up was more chic than shabby. What can I say Meredith and I don't do shabby...LOL....The the bride did say to me that her hair was was she imagined what it would look like on her wedding day. That always makes my day when the bride says those magic words, that means I achieved my goal and made her happy. Mission accomplished by http://www.meredithharperweddings.com/. Stay tuned to the WE network and My Fair Weddings to catch Meredith and I on the show.



Mission Accomplished!!!

The Cut

When I was on the Jet Blue flight to LA, to shoot a segment of "My Fair Weddings" I had a shock, on the screen was the commercial I shot for Suave. And, I was missing...LOL...I landed on the cutting room floor. But, as the plane landed I had a realization. That when one door closes another opens and I after all was on my way to a gig. What a life!!!!!

May the Force be with you!!

Naomi Campbell at Prince Albert's wedding

DO NOT FUCK with Naomi Campbell....alert.....Naomi Campbell wore Givenchy. She claims that since she is the New face of Givenchy, they wanted her to wear it. Pleeease, did she have to wear a halter with the back out to her ass. Not to mention that she wore white, a clear sign that she was out too up stage the bride. Did I mention that Naomi Campbell dated Prince Albert. Never invite your EX to your wedding, Fuck being Friends. It's your wedding day. Have respect for who you are marrying and the love.

P.S. I don't know why all the profanity seems to go with talking about Naomi Campbell.

I've moved salons again and I don't need Therapy.

I'm now at Kayrunn Hirsch and I don't need therapy. Now I would like to explain this statement. I told my sister Alisha that if I moved salon's one more time that I needed therapy. Basicly that I was the problem and not the salons. Well, I may be the problem and the salon is NOT and I still don't need therapy. I think that the solution may be, having my own salon. Since I don't have the capitol to open a salon therefore, I'm now keeping my brushes at Kayrunn Hirsch. I found this salon through a stylist that I worked with named Kazonori, whom I worked with at Warren Tricomi years ago. WoW, what a circle of hair life....LOL...Wish me luck!!!

May the Force be with you!
