The other day I was taking a little trip down memory lane and I found some old salon family photos I thought you guys might enjoy.
There are some faces you might recognize and some you haven’t seen for a while, but most of all, a peek behind the curtain. We try to keep it professional when you’re watching, so here’s a glance at the rest.. these pictures start when I did, circa 2009 ..
This… was the time (6 months into my career) I thought it would be a great idea to convince a bunch of my coworkers to stay after work and wallpaper Michael Boss’s office in post-it notes (which he hates) and then fill it completely to the ceiling with balloons. We had pizza and blew up balloons into the middle of the night until our ears rang and our cheeks hurt. Somehow, our employers forgave us for this.. it’s probably not the best idea to bring it up. Mums the word guys..
Let see what else..
Oh, the photo shoot we did for NAHA! That stands for North American Hairstyling Awards. It’s like the Academy Awards for hair. They are a BIG DEAL in the hair world. Very schmancy. We now have artsy stenciled versions (by artist, and fellow stylist’s hubby, John Worcester) of these hanging in our current changing rooms at the salon. Check ’em out next time you’re in!
-This next one, I think this is from an Art Walk event?? I definitely remember spray painting those styrofoam things on Emily’s head in that back alley of the old salon.. we did a lot of spray painting out there.. (also.. spray paint melts styrofoam.. who knew?)
Honestly I don’t even remember what was happening in this next one..
Then there was that time I found a website where you can create a muppet likeness of someone. It took Valeria and I all of 5 minutes to drop everything and set to work creating muppet Michael!! Poor muppet Micheal, he went on a lot of adventures.
There were flash mobs, animal cracker massacres, Christmas decorating parties, and the time we built a fake employee to blame things on.
Other things I wish I had photos of: all of our apocalypse potlucks (every time someone predicts an apocalypse, we schedule a potluck, just in case it’s our last meal), the time Valeria crept around the Lather Lounge with an EMF reader looking for ghosts, chili cook offs, movie nights, craft nights, and infinity more adventures together.
Most of all we love our clients, we love each other. There aren’t many serious moments, but there are a lot of messes.
