Dariel Pulliam an iconic hairstylist and make-up artist but to many of the people who attended his home going celebration, he was a true friend that inspired and touched everyone he encountered. His warm kind hearted spirit was a quality he was blessed with and he unknowingly improved the quality of our lives just by being himself.
The ceremony was none like I’d ever seen The City of Atlanta came out to pay their respects to my homie and most of them stood up and revealed to everyone what a blessing it was to have known him. The most beautiful part of the ceremony was when over 300 of Dariel’s friends gathered outside for the releasing of the balloons. Just before the releasing we all sang “Amazing Grace” after the song was over we said our silent prayers to him and released the spiritual balloons into the air and watched them vanish into the distance.
R&B Singer Tiffany Evans spoke about her first experience as one of Dariel’s clients. She expressed to him that he was braiding her hair too tight, Dariel simply replied,
“Sweetie If you wanna look like me, then tight is what you get”
Tiffany couldn’t deny that fact so she let him continue, (LOL) she said from their on out she and her husband welcomed Dariel into their life just like family and they developed a close a healthy bond.
Celebrity hair stylist Derek J was unable to attend do to unexpected schedule, but he sent his sister to speak kind words on his behalf on how much he loves, respect, and adores his friend and colleague.
Hip Hop Artist Mika Means, conveyed how Dariel always had a keen intuition for people enduring trying times. She said every time she and Dariel were in each others presence, he always sensed she needed to talk to someone and every time Dariel was there to be an ear for her and issue out his words of wisdom. He never spoke negative of anyone and always embraced positivity EVERYWHERE he went.
I was lost for words after finding out that the homie Dariel had died. I have to say I will always remember that he was always extra crazy and funny. You never know what he would do or say next here is a pictures from the first time I met him and Frankie he always kept me laughing.
