Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, NY.

Brave, I asked “How old are you?”

Her reply, “Oh, I don’t even know anymore…after thirty I just stopped counting…”

Apparently, there’s only so much I can say that her website doesn’t about this Emmy Nominated hair designer.  Bronx native Hadiiya Barbel’s designs have been featured on the likes of Mya, Iman, Ciara, Angela Bassett, Keri Hilson, Taraji P. Henson, and others. 

On this particular day, it was her hair that I saw from a block away while leaving a BBQ joint, that caught my attention.  She happened to be grabbing some Coconut Juice when I asked for a photo.

Of course, this answer made my day.  She adds some soul, and funk to her hairstylings, and so in honor of her, I decided to add some to this photo, which I don’t usually do.

PLEASE do check out this woman’s website for more information on her at www.HadiiyaBarbel.com
