After 35 minutes, my hair was rinsed. After a towel drying, Carmen removed the black cape and draped a barber cloth cape over me instead. She put my hair into a double braid. Very cute.
I do have some sad news. Carmen is closing her shop by the end of the month. Most of her stuff will be (hopefully sold!) tossed. She will be working at a different shop, but the shop won't be hers, and she'll be working under somebody else. So if you ever wanted your hair done in her retro shop, do it asap now. Otherwise, if you don't mind having your hair down in a modern salon, as long as she is your stylist, she'll be happy to work on your hair whenever you're ready.
I held back tears when I heard the news. Her shop will be muchly missed. Thankfully, Carmen is still around to work her wonderful magic. When she goes, it will be a very sad day indeed.
