Wassup Hairdresser??





There's a reason why I look so cute each day!
I have a magic friend called a Hairdresser!

In fact I have had many wonderful hairdressers in my life ... who have become a part of my life.
When I lived in Heber.. my hairdresser was Dixie.. and this woman was more to me then just a hair dresser!.. She went the extra 90 miles to be a confidant,a supporter, a friend, and a safe place to land.
She has had hair day for atleast 6 of my children with a N/C..  becasuse of the rough time we were experienceing.  Once when I went to my appointment.. she colored my hair and as she styled it.. I mentioned to her about the color... "Is this the new color I asked?"
I didn't think PURPLE WAS IN?  (even in the 70's it was a bit extreme for me)
She smiled and pleasantely said.."So I messed Up"
Needless to say.. I had to get back to My Quilt Shop..( that I owned at the time)  I had purple hair for a week.. then Dixie worked me in for a redo..It was a good laugh for all! 
Thanks Dixie for making a difference in my life and my childrens life..

Now in the "Twilight" of my days.. I'm thankful for Cindy my Hairdresser.. she makes my appointments up to 4months in advance.. writes out my checks to her.. plus takes care of her

 4 boy's and her hubby... I think she is a multi-tasker with a smile! She colors my white hair to a nice brown with hi-lights..she listens with a soft heart to a continunation of my life story month to month.  She waltz's around the shop multi tasking with other clients and yet your never neglected.

We have shared many tender mercies together and recognized our Blessings... Thanks Cindy for standing out in the wide world of HAIRDRESSERS!

I"m hoping your mind flickered back to some good memories of your Hairdresser as you read this BLOG!



 Hairdresser is a term referring to anyone whose occupation is to cut or style hair in order to change or maintain a person's image. This is achieved using a combination of hair coloring, haircutting, and hair texturing techniques. Most hairdressers are professionally licensed as either a barber or a cosmetologist.

 Ancient hairdressing

Hairdressing as an occupation dates back thousands of years. Ancient art drawings and paintings have been discovered depicting people working on other persons hair. Greek writers Aristophanes and Homer both mention hairdressing in their writings. In Africa, it was believed in some cultures that a person's spirit occupied his or her hair, giving hairdressers high status within these communities. The status of hairdressing encouraged many to develop their skills, and close relationships were built between hairdressers and their clients. Hours would be spent washing, combing, oiling, styling and ornamenting their hair. Men would work specifically on men, and women on other women. Before a master hairdresser died, they would give their combs and tools to a chosen successor during a special ceremony.[1]
In ancient Egypt, hairdressers had specially decorated cases to hold their tools, including lotions, scissors and styling materials. Barbers also worked as hairdressers, and wealthy men often had personal barbers within their home. With the standard of wig wearing within the culture, wigmakers were also trained as hairdressers. In ancient Rome and Greece household slaves and servants took on the role of hairdressers, including dyeing and shaving. Men who did not have their own private hair or shaving services would visit the local barbershop. Women had their hair maintained and groomed at their homes. Historical documentation is lacking regarding hairstylists from the 5th century till the 1300s. Hair care service grew in demand after a papal decree in 1092 demanded that all Roman Catholic clergymen remove their facial hair.[1]
