various news and hair appointment

I have good news and bad news.  The bad news is that because of the economy, customers dying, and a greedy landlord, I'm not sure how much longer Carmen's Creative Hairstyling Salon in Columbia Heights will remain open.  I highly urge anyone who has ever wanted a perm or a set, to visit her beauty salon, located here in Minnesota.  Remember, men, she loves roller setting hair and doing your makeup.  Come dressed or bring your dress.  No embarrassment at her shop.  Sweet Carmen and her shop are one-of-a-kind. 

Maybe if she can get more clientee she can stay open?  Let's hope so!  I'm having my hair bleached at her shop on Monday at 10 am (feel free to stop in and say hi, or to even have your hair done at the same time!).  I'll be sure to tip her well too.  I'll be shooting a 1950's baby cold wave perm there early next month.  I've added spring water to a jar of dried out Lustre-Creme Shampoo, which I believe is from the 1950's too, and the shampoo is soaking it up nicely.  (To think that lanolin is now used in flooring chemicals!)

Again, make an appointment and visit her lovely salon as soon as you can!  www.carmenshair.com

For good news, the preview clip for Calley's Barbershop Flat Top and Head Shave will be posted on several websites tomorrow.  The video will be released on Friday.

Please Help Carmen!
I have had Carmen cut and color my hair twice. I always go to see her when I am in town. I highly recommend her services regardless if you are in the community or not.

She is a wonderful lady and obviously needs our help.

Please stop in for at least a haircut.

too bad

Yes those salons styled liked Carmens are closing down everywhere. People don't like such salons any more.

Here in Germany ( esspecially in the former Easternpart ) there are perhaps some more still open, but they too get less and less client because budgetsalons are opening up at supermarketes etc.

I hope that Carmen can stay in business.

"..I'll be shooting a 1950's baby cold wave perm there early next month. "

That sounds very cool, you getting curly again. Have fun then.
