Closed for Christmas: Time for Home Remedy Beauty



If you haven't been beautified by the HHoF you are out of luck. Our employees have all been sent home with bonus checks, a Whitman's Sampler and a Bottle of Crown Royal to be with their families.

So it looks like its "home remedy" beauty time.  While mayo can be glopped into your wet hair and then your head can be wrapped in a warm towel, you do have to remember to wash it out.




Whatever you do, do NOT cut your own hair.




Just remember, whatever you do: Just because there is a plaster mask of Santa on the Wall doesn't mean that a plaster masque will work for you. 

See you after the yule log is snuffed out and the fruitcake is digested.

Blue Christmas


Normally, its fun and games here at the Hair Hall of Fame, but this Christmas season brings with it a sad note.

This time last year, one of our own, "Kabuki Zero"(in the picture above), whose real name was William, but was called Billy by his friends, was readying for necessary heart surgery.  And he was very fatalistic about the outcome.

Following the surgery, Kabuki demanded to be released from the hospital feeling as if he had to get home to his beloved pets, despite the protestations of the doctors and cardiac care, he signed the wavers and left the hospital to return to his home.

He died in the middle of night.  His body was found the next morning by a friend.

Sometimes, the people we know and love do things that may not make rational sense, and there is no sense to what happened other than he needed to have his way, for a reason really unknown to anyone but himself.

All of us miss you something awful, Billy.

Love the people who mean everything to you, because sometimes, it can be too late to show it, or tell them.

When Cookie's time comes - and I am not planning on going anywhere anytime, soon, one of the first people that I'll look up upon reaching the afterlife will be Billy.   He'll be sitting there, legs crossed, and fit to be tied "You have kept me waiting."

Perhaps, but I'll make it one day.  MYM.
