jalexartis ~ Hair Styling, Natural Genius Hair Salon, Fayetteville, North Carolina, 12/23

Okay! Here I am 6-days after my 74th Birthday with a retwist of my dreadlocs and a first-time hairstyle [and photos of me] by Tressa, Natural Genius Hair Salon, downtown Fayetteville, NC. My hair extends below my pectoral muscles in front and shoulder blades in back.

Tressa styled a dreadloc crown of my locs to reduce the weight of my hair on new growth. Over my 7 years of wearing my hair loced, I have had some breakage. Over the next year Tressa will reattach some of my broken locs. That will cost me $10 for each repair.

I will forever be indebted to and most thankful to Nafisah, my first stylist and the person who cared for my hair for the last 7 years. Nafisah consulted with Tressa and put her in contact with me for repair of broken locs and to be my new stylist.

I like today’s style. Repaired locs on the crown on my head, will allow subsequent styles to cover more of my receding hairline. Let’s see what we have a year from now.

Thanks Nafisah and Tressa!

Downtown Fayetteville, NC Happenings ~ Parking Deck’s Completion Enters Another Month, 12/01

I published my last update on this parking deck’s construction November 6, 2019. Since then there has been a lot of progress, yet much more to be done before it is released for use. The bottom two levels were to have been finished by the end of last month. I do not have a revised use date, nor the number of levels that will be put into use.

I am anticipating this month and the two lower levels. There remains brick work—most on the west side. Windows are being installed on the east side.

Maybe, there will be sufficient progress for a photo update at the end of this week. I continue to capture these shots with my iPhone 11 Pro. Stay tuned for my next photo update…
