2023.06.06 23:42 Agitated-Chemical895 Anyone know any salons in Baton Rouge that specialize in natural/black hair? (3a-3b)
I am looking for a good stylist that could fix the shape of my hair & get a good trim. The past couple ones I’ve been to, I feel like they always cut an unnecessary amount of my curls off due to “damage” but I know my hair isn’t in that bad of condition to have to lose so much growth every time I go for a cut. And not to mention shrinkage on top of that. If anyone has a good place they trust here, that’s also affordable for a college student, it’d be a huge help.

2023.06.06 23:30 blackbeltblasian Black queer friendly hairdressers?
I’ve been wanting to do something with my hair for the past two years I’ve been living here, but I haven’t been to a salon in literally almost a decade. I have pretty bad anxiety and might be autistic, so most things similar to hair dressing where you have to sit and be with usually a single other person are absolutely unbelievably dreadful to me, not to mention that many times those situations are ripe for racism, homophobia, etc. so I kinda just avoided them by trimming my own hair periodically.
But, I have been really interested in either starting locs, bleaching my hair, twists, something other than just a natural afro, and I was looking for an inclusive hair dresser that would be good for someone who hasn’t had their hair done in so long. My afro is a nice slightly bigger size since it’s been growing this whole time, but it’s not giant. I live near Uptown, and closer would be better but I am totally willing to drive most places in the metro. I’m also looking for something more affordable, since I am a barista and don’t have much in the way of money.
Thanks in advance for any help!

2023.06.06 23:07 veryconfused_ray I finally went to a barber
My mum always made me go to women salons, and they always cut my hair too feminine.
Today I told a friend I was hanging out with that I wanna get a haircut and we went to a barber together and they had an appointment right away.
All of the barbers in the city I was in are turkish, and since turkish people are mostly not used to transgender people I was kinda nervous.
But the barber wasn't bothered by it at all. He just cut my hair and I had to pay a very low price for it.
I think he didn't know my gender since he never used any prounouns or gendered language and probably just didn't care about it.
It turned out quite good, I look way more masculine now.

2023.06.06 23:01 TheLastKokiri Question about self-employment (Colorado) and an estimated tax I should be putting aside every paycheck.
Hey all, my wife started her own hair salon (renting out a studio) after 8 years in the career. She started Feb 2023 and I’m wondering if there is a simple ball park percentage we can put away in savings come quarterly tax.
I somehow came up with 28% in February, but I don’t know how I got this number. I just want to make sure that I am not over estimating, or underestimating.
I would love for someone to break it down for me, or show me a good website that is friendly to ignorance on the subject.
Details: Averages $350 a day, works 5 days a week.
We’ve been saving all receipts for product she purchases, and I broke down each service provided to the dollar amount used in product. (I can’t recall what it was, it’s written down in her salon, I want to say it ranges between $10-$20 for colors and styles)
If there any any questions, please ask away. Thank you all very much.
Side note: We have an appointment scheduled with a CPA soon who is familiar with self employed cosmetologists. I think it’s set for later in the month though, and I was just scratching my brain these past few days, kind of stressing about it all.

2023.06.06 22:59 HollowKnight88 Question about barbers
I cannot go back to a hair salon. Cannotttt! I might actually explode from how awkward I feel in that environment! Ideally I’d like to go to the barber but I’ve never been and I’m still super nervous to try. If the salon has one good thing about it it’s that I know what to expect and how to ask for things. Usually I just bring a photo for reference and ask for my hair to be cut that way, or as close to it as possible. Is that common at barber shops as well? Bcuz I’ll be real, I don’t know crap about clipper sizes and my brain shuts down every time numbers are involved lmao

2023.06.06 22:55 RPCVHondu1012 Middle of the road salon??
Hey Sac, where can I (long hair haver of texture from 2a-3b...if I dry it right) get a good cut and color in town for a somewhat reasonable price?
The chains (Great Clips, Super Cuts, etc.) ain't it and don't seem to do color anyway. Then the salons are all like $300 for cut and color before trying to sell you every product on their shelves. I know rent and overhead are expensive, but cat damn. I went to the Paul Mitchell school the last time I had it done last summer and I'm totally fine with students doing it, but it just takes a long time because they have to check in with instructors. My neurodivergent self can only sit still for so long and that pushes my limits...
Anyone know someone who has a set-up in their house or other options? Or are expensive salons really the only place to get colors? Also, City of Sac preferred. I'll do it at home before driving out 80 or 50. TIA!

2023.06.06 22:40 c2833 Protein treatments - are they always beneficial for bleached hair?
I’m getting confusing advice when I look it up online. I have been getting highlights for like 8 years, last year I then went for an all over bleached look, so now I get my roots bleached. I keep my hair dyed pink now since last year using Manic Panic semi permanent dye. Last week I got my roots bleached again at a salon, so my hair is feeling a bit compromised. Ofc due to the bleaching my hair does feel dry, but not completely fried. I use Olaplex no.3 every now and then, and I think my hair is in alright condition having been bleached. I still want to step up with hair repair, so I’ve gotten the Aphogee two step protein treatment as well as their balancing moisturiser. Before I use it, I just want to ask for some advice. Are protein treatments like Aphogee always going to be good for bleached hair? I’m reading some horror stories about people having their hair ruined by Aphogee. I really don’t want my hair to break off lol. I will follow the directions very carefully, but I want to know if there’s anything I should look out for , or ways to tell if I really do need to use Aphogee. Thank you for any input!

2023.06.06 22:30 amandaguilty Family drama – The murder of Sarah Scazzi – 2/2
<<< First part of the post
My post got cancelled the first time, so I’m trying again. Wish me luck! :)
August 26, 2010. The reconstruction
For the Court, “decisive and definitive proof of the correctness of [this] reconstruction” of the relationship between Sabrina and Ivano and between the former and the victim, comes from a “datum of extraordinary genuineness” – Sarah’s last diary entry:
- August 26: “Today had the sweet awakening with the drill, last night then I went out for a while with Sabrina and her friend Mariangela, we went to the brewery for a quick red bull, then we came home and Sabrina as usual got mad because she says that when Ivano is there I’m always with him, and I believe you at least he cuddles me unlike her, I could have 1 boyfriend like that! But whatever, I’m used to it anyway.....By Buffy Rock 95”
According to all the testimonial evidence, on both the morning and afternoon of August 26, Sarah (once she’d returned from San Pancrazio) went to Sabrina’s house; but why would she do so if the relationship had broken down? The Court considers this issue, advanced by the defense, and replies that
once her brother had left, hanging out with Sabrina represented, for young Sarah, hungry for life and leisure, the only opportunity to get out, to escape from a family environment that appeared to her to be rigid and, at that time, with her grandfather dying and her mother busy caring for him, certainly bleak and oppressive.
Anna Pisanò’s testimony sheds light on the underlying conflict between the cousins, although her account of the morning – as well as the other portions of her testimony – has been rejected by the defense, who argued that Pisanò’s role as a “super-witness” (more on this later) was the by-product of her resentment towards Sabrina, of “her willingness to create misunderstandings” and of the shared religious beliefs with Concetta. The Court rejected this argument reporting that Pisanò and Sabrina were quite intimate friends before the disappearance and the religious practices Pisanò participated to still don’t explain why she would have falsely accused Sabrina. In any case, Pisanò was a client of Sabrina; she said she was close with her, although the latter contradicted her in court. 7:55-9:30 am:
Pisanò said to the investigators and later to the judges that, on the morning of August 26, she went to Sabrina’s for a session (she worked as a beautician off the books); after like an hour, Sarah arrived. Pisanò noticed that she looked unhappy and that she didn’t greet her as usual. The prosecution used this episode to argue the confrontation of the night before continued on August 26, but the defense replied that either a) Pisanò was disliked by Sarah because two years before she had said to Sarah that her father was a womanizer or b) the story narrated by Pisanò was false since the other witnesses who saw Sarah that morning don’t report anything unusual about her. Make of that what you will. 12-12:30 pm:
Once she had returned to her own home, coming from the Misseris, Sarah informed her mother that she was “probably” going to the beach with Sabrina and that, in any case, she would have to wait for confirmation by her cousin. Immediately thereafter, Sarah had asked to accompany her father, who was headed for meat and fruit shopping.1:45-2 pm:
Sarah left her house and headed for Sabrina’s without having received the confirmation message from Sabrina. This is corroborated by
- testimonial evidence (Sarah’s housekeeper Pantir, since the first time she was heard by the investigators, on September 1, 2010, but also later, on December 14, has always maintained that Sarah left the house to go to her cousin’s approximately shortly before 2 pm, after having quickly eaten a chicken cutlet; Antonio Petarra, an Avetrana resident and neighbor of Sarah, saw her walking down the street around 1:45 pm; likewise, a young couple;
- forensic-pathological evidence (medical examiner Strada calculated the ToD considering that Sarah had eaten precooked and homogenized food around 1:30 pm; this was contested by the defense for two reasons: a) the first, methodological, is based on the failure of the state’s forensic pathologist to analyze separately gastric content and b) the scientific questionability of the consequences of stress on the digestive phenomenon);
- cell tower evidence (the first worrying contact someone had with Sarah’s phone was Sabrina’s call at 2:42 pm – the call went to voicemail, apparently making Sabrina go in hyperventilation – and from the analysis of cell towers we know that, during this call, Sarah’s terminal pinged off the tower 40067-60241-TA-AVETRANA-Via Ludovico Ariosto-Sett.1, serving Michele’s garage, while, in the previous contacts from her schoolmate and Sabrina, the tower used was the one serving the Scazzis and the Misseris. This tells us that either Sarah was killed shortly before 2:42 pm by Michele in the garage or that Sarah’s corpse was moved in the garage by someone after she had been killed inside the house. If we hold forensic pathologist Strada’s conclusion that Sarah was strangled with a belt as true, the second hypothesis seems the more likely narration. If we additionally take into account that Sarah didn’t reply to her schoolmate messages and rings – and she was used to respond instantly according to the latter – we can conclude that Sarah was already dead at 2:25 pm and that moves the clock back also for Sarah’s departure from her house).
The Court stated that the reconstruction advanced by the defense – according to which Sarah waited for the 2:25 pm confirmation message in order to go to Sabrina’s – can’t be accepted also because it didn’t make sense for Sarah not to reply to her schoolmate Francesca’s messages if she was really waiting for the confirmation message and wasn’t engaged in any housework. The most plausible reasons why she left before receiving the message are to be identified with the fact that Sarah didn’t want to participate in the house renovations and was anxious to go to the beach.
The defense also attacked the testimony of Pantir indirectly arguing that the “young couple” – that’s the name media used to describe Giuseppina Nardelli and Fedele Giangrande – since a week after the disappearance have always said that they’d seen Sarah walking down the street after 2 pm. The Court countered that Sabrina had tried to influence the memories of the people involved in the case and that’s the distal cause of the young couple’s testimony:
[I]t is well understood how the imprimatur of a certain time indication that placed Sarah’s disappearance around 2:30 pm and, in any case, before 2:42 pm, the time when the search for her began, was provided precisely by Sabrina Misseri in the course of the interviews she gave, with the effect of conditioning not only, as already seen, the memories of Sarah’s family members, but also the information disseminated by the media.
That would explain why the missing person report compiled by Concetta mentioned 2:30 pm as the time of disappearance – Sarah’s mother had simply taken at face value Sabrina’s indication that she’d sent the confirmation message around that time. Moreover, in at least another occasion, Sabrina tried to influence directly a person informed about the facts surrounding the disappearance, namely Mariangela. This is an excerpt from an intercepted conversation between two on September 30, 2010 in the Carabinieri headquarters:
- S: “If… I was sitting under the porch, you know”
- M: “No, Sabri”
- S: “Look, you’re misremembering…”
- M: “No, Sabri”
- S: “That… that if I was sitting…”
- M: “No… you were sitting, last time you were sitting, when I came you were… And you had even closed the gate and I said, ‘what about Sarah?’”
It’s also a fact that the after-2-pm version was initially accredited because everyone thought the last movements of Sarah’s cell phone were genuine and not the result of post-mortem manipulation (more on this later), so it’s not illogical to think that the young couple could have “aligned” their memories with what they deemed to be true. Still, I think the defense raises a good point; ultimately, it’s likely that Giangrande and Nardelli misremembered or made a bad estimation because their original memory (in the later versions they admit it could have been also 2 pm) simply doesn’t fit with all the other evidence, especially Pantir’s testimony, who talked about 2 pm as the time of Sarah leaving the house when everyone else thought the correct time was another. 1:50-2:05 pm:
Sarah arrived at Sabrina’s. Testifying to this there are Cosima’s intercepted words: “it would have been better if lightning had fallen on the house, electrocuting us all that day… electrocuting us all before the girl came”. It’s unlikely that she went to the garage as hypothesized by the defense since, even according to Sabrina, she wasn’t used to hang out alone there at all. Moreover,
It is utterly implausible that Sarah Scazzi – if previously molested, as the Defenses assume – could have decided, for no plausible reason, to voluntarily descend into the dark garage, into the clutches of her molesting uncle (as will be said shortly, just as the latter, enraged by the failure to start the tractor, was shouting and “swearing” like a possessed).
Sabrina testified in court that around this time (when, for example, she received her cousin Adamaria’s call and didn’t respond to it) she was resting in the double bed of her parents, though this is contradicted by Michele even when the latter was offering a completely self-accusatory version: he said that he’d talked to Sabrina in the house before Sarah arrived. On the other hand, Cosima – who according to Sabrina was lying next to her in the double bed – never mentioned the numerous calls, messages and rings her daughter had received in those minutes. Why would she lie about this, in any case?
There was, in fact, a need to defer the moment of her exit to the porch, in order to exclude the possibility of a meeting with Sarah at the moment when the latter – according to the defense version, which saw her leaving the house after receiving confirmation text messages from her cousin – was arriving at the Misseri house.
It’s difficult to understand, moreover, why Sabrina would send the message, “I’m trying [to poo] in the bathroom :)”, to Mariangela if, as she testified in court, the “attempt” lasted only a few seconds. But there are lots of contradictions in Sabrina’s accounts of the events. The shower that, according to previous statements, she had taken once she got out of bed, in the trial statements became a “rinse” of her private parts; regarding the message of 2:39:27 pm to Mariangela (“Ready”), Sabrina, in her statements of October 15, said she’d typed it when she was on the porch, but – faced with the contestation that she had stated that, 55 seconds earlier, when she had received the message from Angela Cimino, she was with certainty in the bathroom – she argued at trial that this message had been sent when she “was going out on the porch”. Concerning these details, the defense tried to deflect holding that Sabrina was in a state of “mental confusion” caused by her cousin’s – to whom she was very close – disappearance. The Court replied that
The detectable contradictions cannot be the result of mnemonic deficits, especially since, most of the time, this is not the explanation that was given by the defendant to justify the narrative inconsistencies.
At this point, though, we have to introduce a crucial witness who showed up quite late but was deemed genuine (at least in his first deposition) by the prosecution and then by the Court; his name is Giovanni Buccolieri and he was a florist in Avetrana.
The kidnapping: the dream of the florist and Cosima’s motive
The finding of kidnapping, contested in complicity to Cosima Serrano and Sabrina Misseri, in the reconstruction of the criminal facts constitutes the logical and factual antecedent of the murder of Sarah Scazzi: the young girl, shortly after entering the house, hastily left [Sabrina’s house], heading on foot toward her home; however, she was chased and immediately tracked down by Cosima Serrano who, together with Sabrina Misseri, forced her to board the Opel Astra car and, placing herself in the driver’s seat again, drove her back to her home in Via Deledda, where she was strangled.
The path by which the information about the kidnapping reached investigators was tortuous. On April 5, 2011, super-witness Anna Pisanò talked with the investigators to report that, in September 2010, she’d heard by her daughter Vanessa Cerra that “someone” she knew had seen Cosima grab Sarah by the hair, snatch her and throw her in the Misseri car on the afternoon of August 26, 2010. Pisanò had asked many times to Cerra who was this mysterious individual, but she decided to make his name only when she left for a job in Germany (saying that, if questioned, he would have said that it was only a dream). When Pisanò discovered the identity of the witness, she went to the investigators.
April 9, 2011 is the day Buccolieri appeared before prosecutors to offer information about Sarah’s disappearance. Only two days later, however, he requested another interview to retract what he’d already told, justifying himself by saying that he wasn’t sure it was real – it could have been a very vivid dream. The prosecutors immediately charged him with perjury, since either the first or the second interview contained false information. Then, in court, Buccolieri used his right to remain silent, although the content of the first interview was mentioned in the motivation report that sentenced Cosima (and Sabrina) to life in prison.
The florist’s dream is one of the most contested points of the sentence. The Supreme Court observed that Buccolieri retracting his testimony about having seen the kidnapping has to be explained in terms of an “attempt to evade the judicial responsibilities incumbent on him”. On the contrary, Cosima’s and especially Sabrina’s defenses argued that only Anna Pisanò reported the incident by talking about a real fact and not a dream, and that she cannot be trusted for the reasons described above.
Concerning the validity of the testimony, the Court considered firstly the discrepancy between Buccolieri’s preoccupation with the incident and it supposedly being just a vivid dream:
that Buccolieri continued, in the days and months that followed, to talk about the affair, albeit representing it as a “dream”, to relatives, relatives-in-law and friends while showing agitation and disturbance, however, makes it quite clear that he – aware of the seriousness of the episode and its significance as an essential junction in the reconstruction of the murder – could not help but think about it and, therefore, talk about it.
Mention has already been made of Pisanò’s credibility, which again becomes an important point here. The woman reported to investigators that her daughter had told her about the incident in terms of a real fact, while the daughter claimed that Buccolieri had only ever told her about a very vivid dream that made it difficult to understand whether it was real or not. Cerra said in court that, when she had asked again Buccolieri to go talk with the investigators, he replied, “If they call me, I deny everything”.
This is probably the strangest piece of evidence pertaining to this case, the only one directly implicating Cosima and it’s quite difficult to assess its validity. The Court considered the issue and tried to justify its reasoning in more than 100 pages. There are reasons both to believe and not to believe that it was a vivid dream.
Firstly, we know for a fact that Buccolieri did have a flower delivery to do on that day. Interestingly, his description of the abduction temporally preceded the discovery of Sarah’s body; this suggests that he may have been truthful insofar as he would have anticipated other evidence emerging from the trial. Another reasoning in favor of the theory that the kidnapping was real is that Cerra wouldn’t have asked Buccolieri to talk with the Carabinieri if his narrative had been really told in the terms of a dream; at the same time, Cerra wouldn’t have refused to tell her mother the name of the dreamer. It would also have been strange for Pisanò – if she had falsely said that the kidnapping was real – to have been able to predict that Buccolieri would speak in the terms of a real fact in his first interview. Finally, the Court considered that the fact Buccolieri said to Cerra that only she knew how things went proved that what he said to his wife and mother-in-law (namely, that it was all a dream) was false – in other words, only Cerra was able to listen to the “true” account of the events; Pisanò then managed to discover it and told about it to the investigators.
On the other hand, it would be dishonest not to acknowledge that Buccolieri to this day maintains that the prosecutors somehow convinced him that the episode was factual, when in reality, according to him, it was only a dream. Other bits of intercepted conversation suggest either that Buccolieri was truthful when he accredited the dream version or that he was trying to impose it to Cerra: “The two of us, when we talked, we talked about a dream and that’s all… we didn’t talk about anything else”. Others again seem to imply that there was a common preoccupation, between Buccolieri and Cerra, with not being involved in the case: “You have to say that… the right things, Va”, “But I said the right things”. In court, Buccolieri’s wife Giuseppina Scredo testified that her husband seemed worried about the “dream” because at the same time he told her about it circumstantial items against Cosima had emerged – but prosecutors replied that, in reality, Cosima became a suspect only in 2011, so it’d have been exaggerated for Buccolieri to be worried about the dream:
[Buccolieri], however, would have had no reason to feel such dismay if it was merely a dream going back in time or if he was in doubt between dream and reality, and even less so if [the story about the kidnapping] was the result of popular suggestion or a “collective dream” of the Avetranese who disliked Serrano. […] Unless we want to attribute to Buccolieri premonitory powers and divinatory abilities, it is not possible that, immediately after Michele Misseri’s arrest, he could have already had suspicions – based, it should be assumed, solely on the unjustifiable dislike he felt for a fellow citizen with a “strong” character whom he saw appearing on television – about Cosima Serrano, so much so that he became convinced of her guilt and “dreamed” of her involvement in the victim’s kidnapping.
It’s also important to ask what would be Cosima’s motive. The Court considered that
The attention that the entire family paid to the aspect of public consideration is further evidenced by Valentina Misseri’s statement at trial about the reasons underlying the reproaches that she and her sister Sabrina used to address to the young Sarah because of the young girl’s affectionate attitudes – which they considered excessive and out of place – to people of the opposite sex, or the makeup that was too “heavy” for her age, which could have, in the older cousins’ view, aroused the gossip of the Avetranese community (“people who talk and are gossipy”) by having the minor girl ‘labeled’ as a ‘no-good’.
Cosima was therefore greatly concerned about what might be said about her daughter if her failed intercourse and on-and-off relationship with Ivano were discovered and especially held Sarah responsible for the humiliation her daughter suffered. As for why she decided to follow Sarah back to her house like the florist had described, the Court considers that the news of the argument was not supposed to reach the Scazzi home – if it had happened, Sarah’s parents would’ve been outraged at Cosima and Sabrina for everything “improper” for a 15-year-old Sarah had discovered or participated to (especially in a rural, tight-knit community as Avetrana is): from knowing about the intercourse to being photographed in pajamas with Sabrina by a shirtless Ivano late one night in May 2010.
It is also shown that the defendant [Cosima] Serrano paid extreme attention to the profile of family respectability, opposing conduct of her daughter that appeared to her, in terms of mentality, age, and culture, to be excessively uninhibited – so much so that she regularly called Sabrina insulting epithets alluding to her sexual mores (“bitch”, “whore”). […] The affront suffered at the hands of the little girl, her rebellion against the authority of her aunt and the fear that she would reveal facts that would compromise the honorability of the Misseri family, generated a strong emotional reaction in the woman that induced her to commit the kidnapping and, once the little girl was brought back home, to commit the crime of murder.
The murder and the weapon
According to the Court that convicted the defendants, Sarah entered the Misseri’s house and stayed there for only a few minutes before leaving abruptly. The fight that broke out that afternoon had to be different from the typical altercations between the two girls, having required the intervention of Cosima.
Sarah, who was attacked and reprimanded, did not suffer supinely this time: she must have experienced those reprimands, those accusations as so undeserved, disproportionate and unjust that she reacted harshly toward her aunt in harsh tones, and with accusations, certainly serious and unexpected, that affected not only her cousin, but also her aunt because of the seriousness of them. […] The questioning of the authority of the two women, Serrano’s outrage at what must have seemed to her to be intolerable accusations made by Sarah and an inadmissible act of rebellion, as well as a show of ingratitude on the part of the little girl who had been welcomed and raised “like a daughter” in that home, the realization that Sarah had grown up and was no longer the shy and submissive child who could be “managed”, but a person capable of reacting, responding in kind, questioning the authority of the two “parental” figures, even rivaling her older cousin and revealing her habits and secrets, shaming her before her mother’s eyes, all these things triggered the reaction of Sabrina Misseri and Cosima Serrano.
After they had returned to the Misseri’s house on the Opel Astra, Sabrina and Cosima strangled Sarah with a belt, one holding her down and the other tightening her grip around the neck. This is also corroborated by the forensic-pathological evidence: according to prof. Strada’s autopsy, “a flat, ribbon-like furrow in the front of the neck is clearly visible [on Sarah’s neck], even to the layman”, while “excluding the mode of strangulation hypothesized by the defense [i.e. a kind of complete hanging] is the absence of signs of fracture of the hyoid bone and cricothyroid cartilages”. Strada concluded therefore that the murder weapon was a belt, the seams of which produced the furrow present on Sarah’s neck.
Against the objections of Sabrina's and Cosima’s defense – which argued that the indication of the murder weapon was intended to shift the blame towards the two defendants – there is the fact that the autopsy was filed on November 11, 2010, when Michele was still the only suspect: Strada could not have known that Sabrina and Cosima would be investigated shortly thereafter.
It is therefore clear that the indication of a belt, not a rope, as the murder weapon preceded the reconstruction that, only later, by virtue of an unambiguous circumstantial framework, came to identify the Misseri family home as the scene of the murder.
The Court noted that “the defense counsel ultimately failed to provide a plausible alternative explanation for the presence of the whitish furrow ‘averaging 2.6 cm wide’ found on the front of the victim’s neck, nor did he effectively explain the origin and nature of the repetitive segmented, in-line impressions present at the edges of said furrow”. In response to the argument that the weapon may have been a rope (such as the one indicated by Michele), the Court underlined that Strada argued extensively that the furrow couldn’t have been produced by such a constraining means.
In addition to that, the Court holds that – since on Sarah’s neck “a sharp, smudge-free pattern was detected” and “the victim did not put up any resistance, especially since it was found that there was no further injury to the ‘structures’ of the neck” – the perpetrators of the vicious attack must have been two, namely Sabrina and Cosima. It was also argued that, if Cosima should be held responsible for kidnapping Sarah and make her go back to the Misseri house, then it becomes quite hard to explain how she didn’t also participate to the actual murder. If the florist’s story is not a dream, Cosima is responsible for killing her niece.

2023.06.06 22:23 Catastropiece Ali Express Extra Long Human Hair Wig Review
| || | submitted by Catastropiece to Wigs [link] [comments]
I’ll preface this that I was not comped or paid to buy this wig. I read multiple reviews of people wanting to find a good human hair wig resource, so I thought I’d try a new vendor, order a wig, and report back.
I am a decades long wig wearer, I learned in University about wigs in theater and it became a life-long hobby. I wear them with my own “edges“ out, so I use a wig I’ve styled and added clips to line up just about an inch behind my hairline. I dye the human hair ones I purchase to match my own current hair color, and usually always add a medium brown root in as well. I set them myself and when I go out I do my hair in different ways.
This wig is from the Luciya Hair Official Store on Ali Express, it’s a 6x6 HD lace top in a 250% density in the longest length 32 inches in a body wave texture for $246.41. I ordered it May 25 and it arrived an hour ago via DHL. I have not ordered from this store previously but I have ordered once before from Ali Express from a defunct store and the wig was the same quality, which I have worn the past year. I do a lot of research before I buy, and have still gotten some awful ones for high prices from eBay in the past. Buying online is a gamble, so YMMV. https://preview.redd.it/tuyexusgdg4b1.jpg?width=2923&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=803370488a4901b689128b174cd2ab2659a7b282
Here is a shot of the inside, the construction was what I was hoping for, and true to what was listed on the website. https://preview.redd.it/zx8i23undg4b1.jpg?width=1536&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=b0ecab4933b3217a7036bab72e818683bee054e9
For complete transparency, there was a few straggling white threads on the one side of the wig, that I can trim off when I sew my wig clips on. It’s no issue for me, but it’s worth mentioning. The hair quality feels good, it’s a basic 613, with some brassy tones. There are not broken sparse hairs at the crown, and very few stray hairs of brown that got through the wefting process. (These are easily tweezed out). Wetting the hair, it doesn’t feel overprocessed.
This is a blank slate, with customization can look like your own hair. After all these years, people are shocked when I tell them my hair is a wig. I like to look like I walked out of a salon with very little effort, so they are my favorite accessory. I would NOT recommend anyone to buy this wig and expect to wear it out as is. These are the canvases that hair companies buy, customize and resell for an extra 0 on the price. https://preview.redd.it/fzkk73vydg4b1.jpg?width=1549&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=bb5f537b2dec86f59b322fc4c4bfe768567f8f62
Wigs direct from the manufacturer in China tend to have very sparse ends. So, measuring the wave stretched out its 33” long from top to bottom, but you can see the bottom is not thick. I always order longer than the length I want, as if I chose to do layered cut with a more blunt end on the unit, I would lose length when cutting this. I like “mermaid hair”, so this one will be turned into a U shaped layered cut but I will still remove 2 or 3 inches to make this look realistic. I will tone this wig with a rinse in purple shampoo to take out some of the brassy tones as well. I also install a silk monotop into my wigs after my cut & dye job is done. I buy my mono tops on Ali Express or at His & Her Hair
in Los Angeles. I used to buy wigs here years ago and the prices went too high so I started going direct to the Chinese manufacturers. His and Her is great for supplies and emergency weft when wig customizing. https://preview.redd.it/6dtkp395hg4b1.jpg?width=1536&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=6e8eaa17c43e7468663f61f36c027986c010cf98
The wig arrived with these freebies in a pink satin bag. https://preview.redd.it/grgm3748hg4b1.jpg?width=1536&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=23ff4e64742a5aa84f5f25c91b2edbb4701f31e3
I hope this is helpful to other Redditors, I stay in this group to see other‘s wigs so I thought I better contribute too. As an aside, I am not a cosmotologist!
2023.06.06 22:23 Kat1020 Hair salon for my senior mother in downtown area? Cut, wash and set recommendations?
We will be visiting Victoria next week and my mom won’t have a chance to get her hair done beforehand. Most the salons I see online seem more trendy. Are there any places in the downtown area (we are staying at Worldmark at the warf area) that cater to elderly women and do roller sets?

2023.06.06 22:18 curlyfae should i give a haircut another shot?
i have had some pretty bad experiences and this sub is not short of any salon horror stories but i’d just like to share a bit of mine. when i was younger between the ages of 6-8ish my hair was longgg and spirally curly and very thick. one day i complained of a headache and idk what my mom was thinking but right away she blamed my “heavy” hair and took me for a haircut. i remember sitting there watching the stylist (who of course straightened my hair as well) wondering what she was doing with the shears. i left with shoulder length hair. as my hair grew out, it started looking….. mushroom-y for lack of a better term. big on top, thin one bottom. i realize now that she THINNED MY HAIR. i was EIGHT. my hair was never the same after that. its been more on the wavy (2b-3a) side, still thick and very poofy/frizzy no matter what i do. many failed haircuts later, ive resorted to giving myself trims but i wish i could find a stylist that will listen to me and not just do what THEY think is best for MY hair. i’m sure i’m not alone but god, having this hair feels so isolating. im still learning how to style it and what products work but since it has no shape to it, i kinda look like a big poof ball most of the time. i can provide photos later! but anyway, just needed to vent a little. i appreciate all my fellow curlies in this sub yall have helped so much 💗

2023.06.06 22:16 BeginningAgency9035 need a haircut! going to trim my bangs too, can't decide what to do though!
| || |
first and last pic are of my hair currently, wavy when first air drying. I want something low maintenance that i can still tie up and not have to put too much effort into styling. usually I'll get a long layered cut with face framing pieces but I'm itching for something a little more dramatic, without completely changing from what I'm used to! also want to even out the splotchy bleaching job I've got going (posted in the hair dye sub about going to a salon to hopefully reach a platinum blonde or dye over those pieces with a purple colour - also open to suggestions on this front!) submitted by BeginningAgency9035 to femalehairadvice [link] [comments]

2023.06.06 21:00 Lucky_Swimming_8953 I had to buzz my hair off and I feel DEJECTED (vent)
| || |
I'm completely gutted. Posted this in another sub but I need some curly solidarity. For my first day at the office after my vacations I went to the hairdresser get a haircut, look presentable again cos I let it grow a little wild and needed to take some frayed ends off. I have 3C curls so it takes a while to grow. submitted by Lucky_Swimming_8953 to curlyhair [link] [comments]
The hairdresser botched it, made a nonsensical assymetric mess which my curl shape hates, I told her but what can you do after the hair is on the floor? She was ALLEGEDLY a curly hair specialist but tried to give me 90s Monica (from Friends) layers saying it would suit me. I told the manager of the salon I'm never going back, got a refund but what does it matter? In the end I was giving As Told by Ginger and not Monica at all tbh
Then I went to my dad's barber to try and salvage it, he made it worse. I looked like a soccer player now. I went to dad's house and asked him to just shave it all off. I have a buzzcut now, think Kristen Stewart when she shaved hers. My dad was really sweet about it but I was just sobbing at the end.
This was last Sunday. I'm feeling so insecure, I played up my makeup and outfit, and I'm wearing some beautiful big earrings, but I feel so dejected. My hair before all this was shoulder-length already. I'm never going to a hairdresser again. This is the worst. Thanks for reading 😞
2023.06.06 20:59 Prestekia What is your preferred at-home option for hair removal?
Hello, I am looking to get rid of body hair, but I just don't know how to go about doing so as there's just too many options avaliable.
My main criteria is that I wish to do the process myself as I do not feel comfortable visiting a salon. It's not too important to me whether the process is noisy, conspicuous, long, or difficult to hide. Although I don't like painful procedures much, I'm okay with enduring a bit in order to achieve my desired look. I'd obviously prefer cheaper options; however, if the purchased product can last a good while and is worth my buck, then I am okay with dishing out the required money.
When I started browsing my options I came across the following: shaving, waxing, epilating, laser hair removal, and hair removal cream
Are there any you tried and would recommend? Which one should I go for?

2023.06.06 20:43 Harvey_Hawk [M4M] The Ogre and the Butterfly Prince Pt. 1 [Romance] [Fantasy] [Series]
AN: Happy Pride Month! This month I am focusing on LGBTQIA+ scripts, naturally. This is a new series! Grahven is my new Fella that spins in my head like a microwave meal, and I love him. I don’t know what to call the prince yet, so if you have a suggestion feel free to leave it in the comments. This script is a bit heavier on direction and action than my others, which I feel is necessary, but let me know if it’s too much. Also, my next script probably won’t be the sequel to this one because I want to work on a nonbinary script next ^-^ I will update this soon, though! Also, I suggest opening the google doc for this one due to formatting weirdness :p Google Doc Usage: - Okay for monetization - Please credit me as Harvey Hawk :) - Tweaks, improv, and pronoun changes are okay! Just please do not rewrite the script completely. Synopsis: In a modern fantasy setting, the listener has trouble sleeping due to insomnia. Their roommate, a tsundere half-dragon just back from a grueling double shift, helps them finally fall asleep. Key: [SFX and Action] (.) Short Pause (...) Longer pause (Voice instruction) Word Count: 1274 Synopsis: The speaker is Grahven the Ogre. Grahven runs the Zinnia Inn, an inn catering mainly to migrating Butterfly Folk. When he receives word that the Monarch's son is due to visit to meet with suitors, he is nervous but determined to give the prince a luxurious stay. —
'Morning, ladies. How was your night? Room to your liking an' all that?
(.) Good to hear. Will you be taking your tea in the garden?
(.) Of course. And what are we in the mood for?
(.) Purple coneflower and lemongrass, and a poppyseed loaf as well. Honey with that? Yes ma'ams, I'll have that out in a jiff.
Hm? Oh, so you’ve heard. That’s right. The Monarchs of the Butterfly Folk are sending their second son on his migration journey. He’ll be stopping here to meet some suitors and take a rest.
Is that so? I heard the migration journey is a large step in a young adult’s life; it must be an especially celebrated event for a prince.
Parties for weeks! What a thing to imagine! I hope the Zinnia is up to his expectations…
Why thank you, ladies. The brothers and I do our best to bring our guests the best experience!
(.) Well met, Sir Kingpage. What can I do for you?
(.) Oh, you're here to see the prince? Well, his royal highness isn't here yet, but I'd be happy to bring you some refreshments while you wait. I just got a shipment of citrus from the Sungold Groves.
(.) Yessir! This way to the garden, then. [Trumpet fanfare]
That's him! Whoa, look at those guards! And that carriage!
(.) Ah, if you'll excuse me, sir. Oi, Dawl! C'mere and show this gentleman to his seat, yeah? [Footsteps]
Your royal highness! Welcome to the Zinn Innia - er, the Zinnia Inn. It sure is an honor to have you. May I help you out of your carr- [Guards rush to intercept]
Ah! Those spears sure look sharp. I'll just, uh, back up a smidge.
(.) Right, right. Sorry 'bout that.
(.) Your royal highness, this humble orc begs your forgiveness. Allow me to bow in your presence. Urgh...
(.) (Grunts in pain)
I'm alright, your highness. Just this ol' knee of mine actin' up. [Approaching footsteps]
Huh? Please, no need to trouble yourself your... (In awe, softly)
Highness... Gods, the way the sun hits you from this angle... [The prince helps Grahven up, maybe a grunt of effort from Grahven]
T-thank you, your highness. Both for helping me up and, uh, calling of those guards.
(.) (Clears throat)
Now then! May I offer the grand tour, or would you like to start with refreshments? Of course, your highness. You must be exhausted from your long journey. Allow me to escort you to the garden gazebo. Uh... will your guards be coming along?
Right then. (To the guards)
Don't worry, you lot. The prince will be safe with me. Dawl will tend to you until the prince is ready to meet his suitors.
(.) Dalin, my good dwarf, bring a platter out for the prince, yeah? And make sure you brew the tea before you chill it this time.
(.) Right this way, your highness. [Footsteps]
(.) Dalin? Yeah, he's a good friend. He and his brother, Dawl, helped build this place. They also made the gazebo. I tell you; those dwarves know a thing or two about adding a homey touch. They even put in a bench swing and hanging planters. [Footsteps stop]
We met in their village. I was there to buy materials and Dawl and Dalin were the only ones who would sell to me. The rest of the village either ran and hid or tried to attack me since… you know. Ogres aren’t exactly welcome in most places, on account of the tyrant and all that.
He may be gone now, but people haven’t forgotten. Thankfully, I’ve made a good reputation for myself here with the Inn. Of course, that’s thanks to the brothers and my patrons. Without them, I’d… well, I’d really have nothing.
Yeah, I’m lucky to have ‘em. [Footsteps]
Ah, here comes Dalin. Huh, he’s got one of your guards with him. Everything alright, gentleman?
Wait, really? Someone really tests your food for you? I thought that was a myth!
Huh. Well, I hope he enjoyed it. Hey, food-tester! We’ve got plenty, and none of it’s poison, so eat all you like! [Dalin sets down the platter]
Thank you, Dalin. This looks delicious.
I hope it’s to your liking, your highness. Let’s see, we’ve got fresh Milkweed salad, wild berry tarts, and my own specialty summer blend of tea. Everything is picked fresh from the garden, save for the Honeybells. Those don’t grow so well here, so I buy those from the Sungold Grove.
Honeybells are your favorite? I knew I made a good call on those! Well, dig in, your highness!
Oh, I’ve been running this place for… hm, five odd years. It started out as just a garden stall. I’d sell fruit and flowers – mostly to the Butterfly Folk during migration. It was a safe place for them to camp, ‘specially with my protection. It was slow going at first, but once Dawl and Dalin came along people were keener to trust me. The garden got so popular with migrating Butterfly Folk we decided we ought to give them a proper place to stay, and the rest is history.
What did I do before this? Before this, I… Forgive me, your highness. I’d rather not talk about that, if that’s alright. ‘S a bit personal, is all.
No, no! No need to apologize. It’s alright. Let’s change the subject. Are you enjoying your journey so far? The Painted Ladies say the Monarchs go all out for their migration. I’m not even sure how it’s supposed to work, in all honesty.
Oh, really? So, it’s not like the insect butterflies at all then? It’s more of a self-discovery thing. Oh, and to find a mate of course. Can you do both on one journey?
Seems like a tall order to me. Then again, you do have your fair share of suitors to choose from. The dining room is just bustlin’ with ‘em!
Are you alright, your highness? You look nervous.
Whenever you want to meet them. You are the prince, after all. I’m sure they wouldn’t mind waiting if you want to rest up a while. I can have Dawl show you to the royal suite–
You want me to show you?
No, it’s no trouble, your highness. I’d be happy to. May I offer you my arm?
Heh, your touch is so delicate. Guess I should expect that from royalty. Right this way, then. [Footsteps]
Don’t worry, your highness. You’ll have plenty of time to rest and freshen up as ya like. (A bit hesitant)
Draw you a bath? Of course. Whatever your highness needs, I’m happy to deliver.
C-comb your hair? I could – (gulp) – yeah, I could do that. But are you sure you want me to do it? You wouldn’t rather one of your royal assistants or –
Oh, okay. Then, uh, it would be my honor, your highness. Ah, here’s your room. I hope it’s to your liking, your highness. [Door opens]
I’m glad you enjoy it. It’s the room with the most windows, so there’s always plenty of light.
Oh, you want me to come in now?
Of course! I’ll just, uh, get that bath started. Please make yourself at home, your highness. I’ll only be a moment. [Door shuts] (Softly)
Gods. Grahven, you big oaf, you’ve done it now. Went and cozied up to a prince and now look at ya. Blushin’ in the mirror like a schoolgirl. Get your head out of the clouds and focus! [Knocking]
Nothing, your highness! Just getting your bath started! [Turns on water] (Sighs)
Just give it up. It’s not like a prince would ever love an ogre, anyway. TO BE CONTINUED
