I know this to be true from having worked with every hair texture imaginable, over the last 10 years. Although my name is Adrienne Tyson, I am known in the hair world as Chicoro. I was dubbed, Ms. Chicoro by those I have helped.

He was the plenary speaker and the chairman of the planning committee for the symposium in Germany.
He considers himself a scientist, and has over 40 years in the hair care industry. I met him when I sent an email to get clarification about the cells on the hair structure that creates curl patterns on the strand.

Who would have ever thought simply acknowledging my birthday would thrust me back into the world of hair? He made me promise to come to his restaurant to have dinner, to share a glass of champagne on my special day.
