new capes!

I crafted a few new capes and an apron

A video of me putting these on my husband will be released next week on my youtube channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/baldchick

Be sure to subscribe to be notified when new videos are released and when I go Live on YouTube.

The transparent PVC cape and apron was created per request by Latex Maid Eve. :)

delay in YouTube videos

I upgraded my cameras to 4k. And because of the higher quality, I upgraded my editing software so I can edit these 4k videos. Unfortunately, there's a glitch in the software. Adobe is looking into it. As soon as it's resolved, I'll be able to finish editing those videos for YouTube.

I do have some footage shot with my older cameras and older editing software. But those videos aren't yet ready and aren't just/or for YouTube. (Some of these videos require a lot of research, and with COVID, some of the government places aren't open to provide specific documents for my research).

video updates!

Last week or so, I released a video called "Me, Myself, and Oster" where I play both the client in the chair and the hairstylist.


If you want to see how some of it was made (the non-green screened parts), I have the audience in the "peanut gallery" for the hair cutting portion of the above video in the live stream video at https://youtu.be/wCT7w4dAPwQ

I clippered my nape with my Oster 76 clippers and then cut my bangs/fringe with a scissors.

The next YouTube Live, I tried out a Flowbee https://youtu.be/rHwJinevrRM But the handheld vacuum wasn't powerful enough.

So after last week's live stream, I re-shot that Flowbee video to be apart of a podcast/webseries in the future. This time, I hooked up my Dyson. Yep, that worked! You can see the results from it in last week's YouTube Live at https://youtu.be/oBZc9-2byhM (My hair was butchered.)

After that, I visited a chain salon for a fix. I wasn't allowed to shoot any video in the shop. :( I did shoot a little before and after on my phone. I'll see about editing that soon and posting it.

For now though, you can see a couple photos from this haircut experience at https://www.instagram.com/katsurth/

In other news, I started editing a video of Molly's haircut. This was shot last year, I believe. I'll post a photo in the blog tomorrow.

Also, tomorrow, I'll be doing an upright shampoo and roller set during a YouTube Live. Be sure to subscribe and turn on notifications to my YouTube channel to be notified when I post new videos or go Live (both thanks to my Patreon supporters).

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. :)

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.

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. :)
