Featured Business: Jennifer's Hair ...

Complete Relaxation and FUN!

It was that time, you know the time when dark roots rear their ugly head and become noticeable to the world.  Since I had been working in Mount Washington I decided to change it up a bit and patron one of the local salons.  I had met Jennifer at a community meeting and decided to give her salon a shot. 

When I called to make my appointment, she was extremely accommodating.  A week later I was on my way to Boggs Avenue to address my hideous roots.  When I walked in, I was greeted by Jennifer and her cousin who works with her conveniently named Jennifer.  There was no wait so I was in the chair immediately.  After a bunch of bull-gabbing and enough foil in my hair to pick up satellite television, I was getting my hair washed with the yummiest smelling shampoo.  For me, like many others, getting my hair washed is like a Zen experience; all I wanted to do was fall asleep, but I was too excited to see my hair.

After my hair was cut, styled, and dried, I felt like a new woman.  My highlights were perfect.  Jennifer did an awesome job.  The best part was that I had fun.  There was no pushing to buy products or other services, just an enjoyable a relaxing few hours of salon peace and happiness.
