[06/17/20]   Dearest clients,

Please wear your mask properly (covering your mouth AND nose) when I am servicing you.


Blaire, who wants to do your hair
[05/28/20]   To my wonderful clients/friends/confidants,

I'm writing to you from the safety of my parent's home, financially stable because of the grace of unemployment. As the date to re-open salons draws closer, I'm filled with many conflicting emotions.

I have been an intimate service provider for 27 years! I have grown emotionally and professionally because of you and I hope you believe our relationship has enriched your life, too. I feel so lucky to be able to simultaneous do art and culture relationships. What a gift!

The wake up call to our global interdependence has happened and is playing out in the most personal ways. To be aware that the air I'm breathing into my body and out to yours has the potential to cause someone's death has been lavishly unthinkable in our corner of the world until now.


How do we safely transition to being close to each other again? How do I spread out appointments AND make a living without being there 12 hours a day? The answers come down to figuring out what I know and getting comfortable with not knowing. (This is the perfect place for the analogy of growing people's hair out. It's a lot of let's wait and see :))

I'm writing this to you so you can see where I'm at- but also to ask for your patience while we are bravely figuring out the new world. Here are some thoughts/requests:

*I may not be able to get everything in on your first appointment. Let's figure out the most important and go from there, please.

*Please wear a mask that hooks behind your ears. I have some disposable masks in case you forget.

*Please wash your hands before we start your service.

*Please stay in the parking lot until I either text or wave you in.

*Since I am lengthening appointment times, pre-booking is more important than ever.

*Many of you have pre-paid for your first appointments. I am super grateful, but also super forgetful! I have put the amounts on your account, but need a reminder to look πŸ˜…

*My timing is going to be off for a bit. Please be patient while waiting for your appointment. Now I know some of you may be rolling your eyes at this lol. My timing may have been a bit off in the past. But I'm not using this as an excuse! (However, it is a really good one) I promise to do the best I can in this area.

*We cannot hug even though I will want to.

*I might cry because of the above..and think you can't tell because of my mask. It's ok to let me think this. πŸ˜‚

Well, I think that is it for now. I may be adding to the list so please check this post before your appointment. Please comment with anything else you might find helpful.

[04/09/20]   Hi! I'll be working the next few days to get everyone rescheduled past the new extended order. Just ignore any appointment reminders for the moment...

Stay safe and sane πŸ₯° It will be a glorious time to see all of you again!

--But I have to say a loving "no" to secret hair appointments.
[03/22/20]   If you have an appointment before April 14, I will be contacting you. Stay safe!
[03/21/20]   I'm headed to the distributor tomorrow! If you'd like me to pick something up, pm me :) I will deliver.

I also have something to ask of you that makes me super uncomfortable, but here goes...

If we need to cancel/move your appointment, could you purchase a gift certificate- and spread it's use over the next two appointments, please?

This all is unfolding super fast, and just started. I have saved for emergencies, but am always thinking ahead ☺️.

[03/14/20]   Dearest Clients,

I hope this finds you and yours all safe and well.πŸ’ž

My thoughts on the safest way to navigate through this new coronavirus reality are a bit scattered, but I will try. First, I am taking my role of working intimately with you as a privilege that comes with responsibility. For now, my part is to wash my hands in between services, sanitize my implements and work surfaces often, use hand sanitizer or wash my hands when I touch my face (help!), and stay home if Rylan or I are sick.

I'm asking all of you to wash your hands before we start, sanitize when you need to, and most importantly, stay home if you or someone you're in close contact with is ill.

I'm hoping this will be enough for the salon to not be a hub for the virus to hitch a ride, but feel in a week or so, I may be closing shop for a few days.

Let's see how this unfolds 😊... See you soon!

(totally bragging).. I'm getting pretty good at doing my own nails and having fun practicing nail art on myself, too!
I'm so lucky to be able to do transformations like this!
