My Consultant "Ms. Elaine"

This post is dedicated to my Consultant, Ms. Elaine Hill, she is located in the heart of Dallas, 7979 Inwood (Inwood and Lovers Lane), 214 956.7842. She is both a Cosmtologist and Certified Sisterlock Consultant; Ms. Elaine (bottom left & right) is also a true advocate of Dr. Cornwell and she has been certified for seven years. She loves her work and is both professional and knowledgeable, a real jewel! Her clientele consist of both men and women who wear natural hair styles and locks. Over 90% of her patrons are locked and she herself has worn beautiful traditional locks for over eight years. (With her permission, she allowed me to post her photos so I'd appreciate if you do not copy them...thanks!) We've had conversations about her cutting off her traditional locks and starting Sisterlocks TM. While I love Sisterlocks TM, I couldn't image cutting my beautiful traditional locks to start the process all over again! According to our recent dialogue that time may be real soon!

I am probably one of Ms. Elaine's most worrisome clients and I really admire her spirit because she is always so patient, honest and warm. Now, since she takes great pride in her work and doing what's best for each individual customer she does not hold her tongue if you overstep the boundaries. She is very open to questions and ideas but makes sure you understand that "your" hair type is not like the next person so you can't look at others and expect the same results. You are da bomb Ms. Elaine, and I really enjoy the services you provide, especailly those wonderful washes before retightening.

While I was in the Salon last week I met a new Sisterlocker, Cindy Moy. Ms. Elaine started Cindy's SL's six weeks ago and I began asking questions about her decison to get Sisterlocks TM. Cindy shared her story with me, she had been in the valley of decision to get "locked up" for a while when Ms. Elaine mentioned the Sisterlock TM process and showed her the video. After seeing the video she became intrigued and soon ran into someone that actually had them and then she grew totally convinced that Sisterlocks TM is what she wanted. Cindy also allowed me to take a photo while Ms. Elaine retightened her hair and I'm sure she will be starting a blog of her own journey soon. Click on the pic to get a closer view. Cindy, welcome to the sisterhood of Sisterlocks TM and thanks for allowing me to post the beginning your the journey on my blog!!!!

If any of you are in the Dallas/Ft Worth Texas area, I would highly recommend Ms. Elaine for any of your locking and natural hair care needs.

Reminder: DFW Sisterlockers, looking forward to our Christmas Brunch and BlaqKofi birthday celebration December 4th!!!!

Hey LaChanda,

Such beautiful pictures on your blog. Glad you also put a picture of Elaine up. It's nice to know who you've talked on the phone to. I hope to have an updated pic of me and some crinkles.

I'm in the Houston/Tx City area along with Jen for the holiday. We'll be heading home sometime tomorrow evening. It's been nice. My anniversary is tomorrow (28th). Yippee!! We'll see each other real soon!!!

What a nice tribute to Elaine. I'm sure she would appreciate your kind, sincere words. She installed my SLs on Nov. 10th and has been truly an inspiring & helpful consultant for me. I agree with you, LaChanda, if anyone in the DFW area is looking for a SL consultant, call Elaine!!!

I am so glad that you met Cindy. I have been trying to find her email address so that I could tell her about the next gathering. I am assuming that you shared the info with her. Such a small world and really an awesome community.

I love the tribute to Ms. Elaine. She really does handle her business!

I love this post about your consultant. Is she really thinking about cutting her traditionals and starting SL's???? I don't know if I'd be brave enough for that!

P.S. Can't wait to hear about the Brunch!!!

Hey LaChanda,

I initially scheduled my consultation with GiGi, but my aunt referred me to Ms. Elaine.
She quoted me at a lower price so I elected to go with her. Plus, she is 20 minutes from home. She put test locks in my hair yesterday and I just loved them.
She will be doing my SLs in 2 weeks.

I posted that question on Lock It Up Group...
Girl you are everywhere!!!

Hey Creyole,

I still hope to get Sisterlocks. I found your full blog while doing a search for Elaine Hill. My friend Tambra just got her Sisterlocks in about two weeks ago - Elaine did them.
I hope to be able to save to get them too I REALLY want them.

Elaine is my consultant too. My sisterloc b-day is Aug. 4. As a loc wear before, SL has been great for my dense hair. I just love it. Elaine is all that and more.
