salon sink update video!

If you enjoy before and after DIY videos, I posted a video on YouTube where I take my Marble Products pedestal shampoo salon sink, model 500, and updated it with enamel paint and some new hardware. Including some hardware to allow me to use this cool shampoo bowl in the garage studio where there actually is no plumbing. :)


In other news, I will be listing some items on eBay soon. Two skirts will be up in about an hour. I'll be listing some hairdressing gowns within a few days. Here's the link (which is also my affiliate link)


I'm looking to upgrade my cameras. I purchased one already, so you should be seeing better quality, especially in the video above. It was shot in 4k. =D

salon chair, sink, and dryer are done!

Oh my. While expecting each project to take a day or two, it took about at least a week each! (Yes, several trips to hardware stores and sometimes then purchasing supplies online happened). With bruises, lots of cursing, painted clothing and skin, and a couple of broken nails, all three projects are done!

Well, the salon chair dryer will need to be upholstered to black at some point, but finding the fabric is tricky, since it has been discontinued, but that's okay, it can wait. :)

Here are the finished projects! (Videos of each will be posted on YouTube within a month or two).

And just to jog your memory, here is what the salon chair dryer, salon chair, and salon sink used to look

I'm going to fill the water "tank" after I post this blog posting. I'm charging the camera battery. I haven't had time yet to cut my hair, but hope to either tonight or tomorrow. My focus was putting on the green screen background (done!) and all those fun things mentioned above.

In other news, I purchased a Flowbee! Ever since I saw it (a parody knock-off) in the first Wayne's World movie, I've always wanted to try it myself. Tee-hee.

Oh, and I have towels to put next to the salon sink. I'll pull them out of the dryer now.

salon furniture getting an update

Yesterday, I took apart the salon sink and started painting it bubble gum pink. (I am thinking now that I should have painted it white. I think I might repaint it).

I also took the Normandie chair dryer apart and will be Frankensteining the gold salon chair soon. I plan on taking my green salon chair apart either later today or this week to redo the upholstery to black.

new hair dryer - Automatic Cycle Normandie Thermo Control

Welcome Automatic Cycle Normandie Thermo Control salon hair dryer to your new home!

This dryer does heat up well. Because the brown salon chair portion is boring, I will be removing the dryer from the chair and adding it to the gold one. (I really like the foot rest the gold one has). I have already scrapped the gold chair's dryer, as I couldn't get the dryer to heat up.

I will remove the gold color fabric and re-upholster it with black vinyl. I need to do the same with the green salon chair too. My goal is to do these soon or during this upcoming weekend. Hopefully, I have enough fabric to do both in one sitting. :)

Bingo Patterns for tomorrow's YouTube Live Bingo - Sunday, May 17th at 10 am USA Central Time

I hope that you're up for some Bingo fun at tomorrow's YouTube Live, Sunday, May 17th at 10 am USA Central Time. Current time can be found at https://time.is/CT

Here are the bingo patterns that we'll be playing

If you prefer to download a set of Bingo cards, you will find them at https://drive.google.com/file/d/17i-qF_v8RTibxI4qYQLSds8-vh-Kk53x/view?usp=sharing There are 34 different cards. If you use these, I'd suggest picking cards at random, as others might be playing with this set too.

You can always use your own bingo cards or use them from the bingo card generator at https://myfreebingocards.com/numbers/1-75

When you have a bingo, immediately type in the chat window BINGO! And state which available prize you want, so it can be set aside for you.

If you have a bingo and you are playing with a physical copy - take a good, clear photo of it and send that photo with the prize of your choice, your YouTube name, and your mailing address to katsgamewinner@gmail.com

If you have a bingo and you are playing with a digital copy, use a program like Snipping Tool or Snag It to copy that marked up bingo card and save it, and send that photo with the prize of your choice, your YouTube name, and your mailing address to katsgamewinner@gmail.com

Winning bingo cards will be checked against the called numbers when the card has been received.

See previous blog posting for more information and rules https://haircuttingfun.livejournal.com/694708.html

Good luck and have fun!

My salon capes

People ask me often if they can buy salon capes from my personal collection. The answer is no.

Sometimes I will buy a bunch of aprons and salon and barber capes in bulk and I will sell those on eBay. I currently have some vintage yellow shampoo capes on eBay at https://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fsch%2Fkatsurth%2Fm.html%3Fitem%3D273440889895%26hash%3Ditem3faa58dc27%253Ag%253Ag7MAAOSwUO9bjah9%26rt%3Dnc%26_trksid%3Dp2047675.l2562&campid=5337937244&toolid=20008 (affiliate link)

Once those are gone, they are gone for good.

Sometimes I make extra cotton-cloth barber capes or satin salon capes and I either put them on eBay (see link above) or have a giveaway contest on YouTube. To be notified of my new eBay auctions, Follow Me on eBay.

To be notified when I post new videos or do YouTube Lives, subscribe and turn on notifications at https://www.youtube.com/user/baldchick

During May's Bingo YouTube Live, I will be giving a vintage yellow cape away. Please see a previous blog posting or watch my bingo YouTube video for more information.

One cape that you will see for three videos is my new black PVC salon gown with red satin interior. I showed it off in a YouTube Live, I dressed my husband in it for a nape shave video coming up, and I feature it in a video on it's own, also coming up. I love this cape and if you'd like to own the same one that I do, or if you want to swap PVC colors or satin colors, you can buy it at https://shop.eblue.com/pvc-fetishwear/salon-cape-pvc-satin?cPath=180_102&aff=1142527 (affiliate link)

You can also ask to make it longer or have other alterations done, if you'd like. eBlue is cool like that. =D

I have fabric to make a few more capes. Once I make them, I'll decide what I'll do with them at that time. Once my YouTube channel hits 100,000 subscribers, I'll make and give a cape away monthly for a year. :)

I bought some henna

Awhile back, I mentioned that when I color my hair again, that I would use henna, as henna is natural and less damaging to the hair. Scott is awesome and told me about Henna King https://www.hennaking.com/hair-color-care/womens-henna-hair-dye/ I purchased Natural Red. Once the world is more normal again, I'll have a friend color my hair for me. :)

For those curious, here is what I purchased. The shampoo, conditioner, and lavender essential oils came up as an option when buying the henna. Since I've never done henna before, I thought, "why not?" and added them to my cart.

I'm so excited and am so eager to try this! Currently, my hair is at least three different shades - red, white, and light brown.
