Netizens have reacted to BBNaija’s Nengi Rebecca Hampson’s story of how she used the services of a 13-year-old hairdresser.
The reality TV star recently took to Twitter to narrate her heartwarming encounter with the young hairstylist and pointed out an important lesson from the encounter.
According to her, she wanted to make cornrows but her usual hairdresser was not available so she had to request for an alternative stylist.
A young girl was brought to her, but she didn’t turn down her service. She revealed that the girl was appreciative of her trust in her, despite her age.
The 22-year-old beauty queen noted that sometimes people only need someone to believe in them. She also expressed gratitude to everyone who believed in her and vowed to make them proud.
Taking to her Twitter page, she wrote:
“So today, After I got back home from location, really wanted to redo my cornrows. Usually, Marvelous would do it but everyone travelled. I sha sent my PA to go get me someone from a salon nearby. Next thing I saw him come back with this little girl.
Not more than 13 years. She kept telling me thank you, prayed for me.. said she’s so happy. It’s the first time she’s making a celebrity’s hair. I told her it was fine then she goes..
A lot of people wouldn’t have let me make their hair. They’d say I’m too small.
Long story short, sometimes all people need is someone to believe in them. I’m really grateful to all of you who believed in me when the world refused to give me a chance. My goal is to work hard to make sure you’re proud of that decision.”
