Expanding my horizons....

I hate to admit it, but the downward spiral of the economy has hit our nations hair salons. As a hairstylist, this really concerns me. I've been thinking about how I can bring in a little extra cash. Recently, we were visiting Nate's old roommate and his new wife, Tom and Season Giles. Along with some other friends that were there, including Aileen(a mastermind in this money making scheme), we came up with a way to make some more money. Season agreed to be my model/guinea pig. Here we are at the beginning of the pilot program. Thank you and sorry about how long it must have taken you to comb out this rats nest.
When I say rats nest, I REALLY mean it. This took us minutes upon minutes upon minutes.


In case you've been wondering, this is the look we are going for. Nate's from Hurricane, which is VERY close to Colorado City. We see polygamists with hairstyles like this everywhere we go in Hurricane and St George. As a trained and experienced stylist, I am completely dumbfounded as to how they get their hair to do this!!!! All I can do is stare with my jaw dropped while Nate is probably totally humiliated. It's unbelievably smooth with tons of volume and there is not a bubble to be found. And on top of that, I'm pretty sure they don't use and ounce of product, not to mention bobby pins! What on earth is their secret?????

Here is our finished product. Please don't enlarge this picture, I don't want you to see a close up version of the style. It's kind of pathetic.



For any of you ladies out their that want to get this great new style, call soon as appointments are going fast. And guys, this is a great birthday, Mother's Day or "just because" present. It's at a going rate of an inexpesive $25.99. Call now, before it's too late.

Steve and I are dying laughing! That is so funny! In all seriousness, I actually have a theory about how they get their hair like that. I think the ones who really have all that height have something in there. Someone told me once that in the 40's, women used to use a little tube thingy to get those rolls at the front of their hair. I think those polygamist ladies are doing something similar. Kind of like bump-its, only in the front.

Aileen said...

You funny. Can you include a shampoo set in with that style? I think Addie and the girls are going to do that for family pictures.

amelia and crew said...

How do they do that? That's all I can think of when I see those ladies on TV or at the St. George Walmart.

That is so hilarious! My sister had a friend whole dressed in the whole get-up for halloween and said it was so funny. Do you think the higher the hair=the higher the status they have in their family?

Well I just found out I'm coming to UT in April and I was going to call you to make an appt for my usual cut & color but after reading this post I think I might have to re-think my style. You are too funny!

Oh and BTW, as soon as you said please don't enlarge the picture I totally had to!

Kelly Anderson said...

u soooo silly!

Jill said...

This is your best post, ever. And I think that I would like to take this style with me to DC. And, I think that they must use some kind of animal fat-- that would hold it still and I don't think it would be against any religious views.

Taylors said...

Seriously, THE funniest thing ever! And your so modest too. If I were so clever and witty I would have told everyone at the salon to look at my blog. And yes, I too have stared in wonderment at how in the heck those ladies get their hair to look like that... and why for that matter!
