A Hairy Situation...

Howdy ho you ravaging people!

How is the end of October treating you all? Crazy that it's almost over... and even more crazy that it's almost Halloween already! I keep forgetting, and then getting bombarded with minor heart attacks every time a fire cracker goes off and startles me. Maybe I'm just turning in to a big wuss in my new found old age... senility is kicking in early. You would think after being startled more times than I can count, that I would realize 'hey Sadie, Halloween, remember?!'

I worked in our Comox location today, which was a treat. I don't think it was a treat for the staff there though, I was a bit on the hyper side for the better part of the day. Me + hyper + being at a desk for 9.5 hours = shinannigans. It's super fun though, so -I- am not going to complain. They are all such good sports out there though, and don't get me wrong, they dish out their fair share of verbal abuse and word slinging! Only to staff though, never fear. We only harass each other, promise.

The lovely Desiree was super busy again today. She sure knows how to pamper a person! I keep wanting to get in to see her and take another film of me getting hair torn out of my body, but I would not want to steal time from her clients. I'll have to kidnap her for a few hours. DISCLAIMER: By kidnap, I mean bribe with delicious treats, money and a box full of open ended IOUs.

Hair brings one's self-image into focus; it is vanity's proving ground. Hair is terribly personal, a tangle of mysterious prejudices. ~Shana Alexander

It got me thinking about the world of esthetics, and where men are starting to fit in to that scene. Men are getting more and more comfortable with booking appointments for things such as eyebrow waxing, back waxes, eyebrow tints etc. which is super awesome! However, I think we need to progress with this trend a little further, you know, refine it. A lot of men are still on the fence with it, and most never admit to having anything done. It's totally manly! You can't get more manly! Come in, get MAN-i-'cured' and walk out fist pumping and flexing those muscles!

PRO TIP: If you are a man, and you are reading this, please don't let this happen...

That, fellas, is just not cool ok? Never do that! This is just one picture I found, but I didn't want to post a bunch more because frankly I know you guys... you are going to see this, ignore my warnings and say 'DUDE! That's AWESOME!' and go get it done.


But hey, it's fine, we at Roots do not discriminate against new trends. We're cutting edge baby. If you want funky back hair designs, we will do it up. I promise to hold judgements, as long as you don't go convincing my boyfriend to wax 'l33t Gamer' in to his chest hair.

Tata for now! Tomorrow marks our one year anniversary since we had a massive fire at Roots, so I'll be revisiting that day in another post :) Bring the marshmallows and weenies! It's story time!

Thank you for calling,
