Stormy Days are Bad for Hair

WOWZA! What a day! It's crazy windy outside, which is absoultely awesome, except for when the wind knocks out your power. I came in to work today and heard that our power was out in the Comox location, which is where we have our servers so... no server, no booking of clients, payments and the like. We managed to shed our technology dependant skins and used our brains, a pen and some paper. Who would have thought THAT could work?!

So, after a couple hours of old schoolin' it up at the desk, the power came back to the Comox location. BOOM! Back to normal, just like that... ohhh, wait... nope, there went the power at our Courtenay location. Back out came the pens and the paper... and even my brain. That only lasted for about half an hour though, so yes, I survived!

Don't knock the weather; nine-tenths of the people couldn't start a conversation if it didn't change once in a while. ~Kin Hubbard

Crystal did most of the work here though as I had skipped out for a few minutes to grab a healthy lunch of peanut butter and toast. Shhhh... I know, I know, not the most healthy thing in the entire world. Do I get bonus points for the fact that it tasted AMAZING?! I hope so, I like bonuses.

So that's my day so far! A nice storm to watch out the window and some old fashioned Yeah, receptionisting, that's it.

Thank you for calling,

My New Home

Hello my friends!

I would like to introduce myself. My name is Sadie, and I am a receptionist at Roots the Salon. Who is Roots the Salon you may ask? Well, Roots the Salon just so happens to be one of the best salons on the planet. I'm serious... I'm not just saying that because I work there. Nobody has bribed me, or threatened my life to say it! It really is amazing, and I absolutely love working there!

It is a really busy place full of busy people and busy days, but that's part of why I love it so. I get to see people come in, disappear behind the wall, and emerge looking fabulous! I get to witness total transformations in how someone looks multiple times a day. It's a very uplifting place to work. Then there is the staff... we have a lot of staff! All of them are ridiculously talented individuals who make a difference in the lives of others on a daily basis. They are like super heroes, but instead of stopping crime, they are enforcing hotness! It's awesome!

Why a blog though? Why write about being a receptionist? Why do I care so much? Well... because I spend a lot of my day watching all of this stuff happen, and I spend a lot of my day pondering beauty in general. Pondering trends, pondering colors, pondering makeovers, pondering human relations, pondering ... well everything. There is a lot to ponder! I thought why not write about it? Why not involve all of you in to my daily life in the salon!

I'm sure through my writing you will get to know and love the people I work with. There are some serious characters up in there! It's extremely entertaining, and it would be just so wrong of me not to share that with the world.

Don't worry... it wont be all words! I promise to post pictures and video clips to spice up your reading experience, or just give you a break from reading in general!

I'm tired of all this nonsense about beauty being only skin-deep. That's deep enough. What do you want - an adorable pancreas? ~Jean Kerr, The Snake Has All the Lines

So welcome to the craziness people. Don't be shy! Comment and share your thoughts with me.

Now, it's late and I have to work tomorrow so for now I bid you adieu!

Thank you for calling,
