I meeaaan…FINALLY! The Fly Cut is finally, finally going to launch next Tuesday, July 17th! For those of you looking at me with a blank-faced expression, The Fly Cut is a website my sisters and I created — the first and only daily deal site exclusively offering discounts to black hair salon services! Exciting, right? Folks are calling it “Groupon for Black Hair Salons.” We were set to launch in March, but, well…you wouldn’t believe how many crazy technical issues arise when creating a site like this. But now it’s 100% perfection! *shimmy*
Le deets: Every week, The Fly Cut will feature a top black salon in your city, offering 50 – 80% off of their most popular services. And we have something for everyone — weavologists, maje natural hair salons, blowout meccas, you name it. We’re launching in NYC first, and then expanding to DC, L.A., Houston, Atlanta, Chicago…and on and on, till we hit all the major markets. Our first featured salon will be Miss Jessie’s in SoHo! Can you stand it?
Me, Devon/Brownie and Lauren are just SO excited. We feel like this idea is so necessary right now (sexy hair on the cheap? Don’t mind if I do)!! And to celebrate, my wicked sisters are making me humiliate myself by revealing “fly cuts” from my past — a new one every day leading up to the launch. Ready for today’s throwback?
Me in 1990, age 15, sporting a meticulously hot-rollered Designing Women-esque ‘do punctuated by my sophomore year staple, the Croissant Bang. I achieved the Croissant Bang by setting it in two rollers overnight. The top one was rolled backwards, the bottom one was rolled underneath. In the morning, I’d tease and spray the whole situation to oblivion. This is actually a subtle version of TCB — if memory serves, my girlfriends and I decided to serve “demure” for our mall glamour shot portraits. Insane.
Ladies! I’m dying to see your favorite “fly cuts” of yesteryear! Hit The Fly Cut’s FB page and upload your pics…my top three favorites will get a very special giveaway!! Oh, and every day leading up to next Tuesday’s launch, we’re giving away The Fly Cut gift certificates — check out the deets on our FB page. Yay, it’s all happening!
