Bad Hair Signs II: A Contributor Sends!

These were sent to me by "Mr. Philip," a beautician pal who wishes to remain anonymous, but a fan nonetheless. As you can see, he thinks along similar lines, so we can expect future contributions.


But what is Lee's Hairstory?

The Hair Cafe. Not associated with Yummy Hair.

"Hair One." You know, like "Airforce One."

The Kazan Look

Tacky Beauty Parlor Names A -Z

We all know there is nothing more important than getting our hair did. More importantly is where? I prefer an establishment with a cute name. No other industry suffers from the ‘Cute Name’ syndrome more so than the hair industry. For instance any salon with an emphasis on alliteration of the letter ‘K’ is an especially good choice, like ‘Krystalz Kutz’ or ‘Klazzy Klipperz’. Z’s are also a good indicator.

In an attempt to kut through the klutter I propose a klassification of Tacky Beauty Parlor Names A -Z.

Please submit your favorites and if possible photographic evidence of the alleged offenders. Operators of the Hair Hall of Fame please post yours under the label heading, 'A -Z - Tacky Beauty Parlor Names'. If you feel more komfortable leave them in the komments section. The list will be never ending and updated on a kontinuous and daily basis. Bonus points will be awarded for any original submissions beginning with the letter ‘K’ and a free Kut’n Kurl from beauty operator Kool Kookie!

So without any further klamoring, klattering or kommotion, The Hair Hall of Fame presents the definitive Kanonical list of Tacky Beauty Parlor Names A -Z.

If you listen closely to her hairdo, you can hear the ocean.


Mr. Teasie-Weasie

To learn all about this Master of Style, please refer to this previous informational post that I did. I'm all aflutter because a stylist who worked with ... Teasie? Mr. Weasie? (his name is, of course, Raymond) ... just commented. I do hope they keep returning and maybe they can upload that training film they mention!

Watch some short films of Raymond in action. Be sure to see this amazing one.

Don’t let your DAILY DIP cause ‘dry hair’!


To All Salon Employees:

Please be certain that each of you read through this book.  You will find copies in the break room, on the shelf over the washer and dryer.

It is important to familiarize yourselves with this material as we will begin promoting this haircut next week.  It's simple, classic, easy to care for and most importantly for the summer season....

....looks good even when it's wet.

Thank you for your cooperation,

Bobbie Pinz
