I started doing hair when my first daughter was born in 1995. Having hair that I never had, I had to play hair stylist! I loved fixing her thick, long, curly hair. She quickly became used to the idea that mommy was going to do a “fabulous do” to her hair. Sitting on the bathroom counter in front of the mirror became mommy and me time for my little princess.
Four years later we were blessed with our second little princess. With my new found love of the “fabulous do” I was so excited to have matching princesses! It didn’t take long for me to realize that this little princess came with her own instructions. “You can do anything you want with my thin, hard to grow, straight hair. Good Luck!”
Realizing that she was not an exact hair match did not stop me. I became very creative on how to do both princesses hair. And to my surprise, I could do matching princess hairdos! I love both of my princesses very much and am so grateful for their differences. They make life fun!
Going out with “fabulous dos” was so fun. People would ask me how I did their hair. Word spread and I was doing “fabulous dos” for family, friends and neighbors. Recitals, dance competitions, school dances, family photos, Halloween, receptions, weddings, and of course Prom were some of the occasions that I was creating “fabulous dos”. I was even asked at my church to teach a class about hairdos.
It wasn’t until a couple of years ago, after my father in law died suddenly of a heart attack at a very young 63, that something he said to me a few years earlier came back into my mind. After seeing his daughter walk down the stairs with a “fabulous do” for her second wedding he stated to me, “Wow! You missed your life’s calling.” Well dad, I am now trying to fulfill that calling and share my “fabulous dos” with the world.
Have fun with these “fabulous dos”!
