It’s spring! Which means it’s time for me to shed my winter coat and emerge from hibernation. It’s only early September, but I’ve already got a spring in my step just thinking about all the delicious, warming rays of sunshine I will soon be able to catch in the front window of the salon. Don’t get me wrong – I’ve loved napping my way through winter, but there’s a season for everything and I (like many) am ready for some sunshine.
A vacay and a baby
Chris has recently returned from a few weeks in America where she drank giant cocktails, caught some rays on the beach and missed me like crazy. While her much-needed holiday was heaps of fun, she’s returned rejuvenated and
full of all that Vitamin D acquired on California’s beaches. We’re not jealous…. okay, only a little bit jealous.
In other staff news, Anna will be welcoming a new addition to the family soon! I am super excited to have a new baby to play with – as long as the little one doesn’t sit in my cat bed, steal my toys or grab my tail too much. In all seriousness, we are all very happy for her. Make sure you grab an appointment with her before she goes on leave!
Style for Life day a raging success
Opening on a Sunday isn’t something that we usually do, but the team made an exception to the rule by opening up the salon on the last Sunday of July in order to raise money for a very good cause. With all takings from the day going towards a charity called Hagar Australia, Babar Hair joined haircare brand Eleven Australia to raise money for survivors of human rights abuse. An overall total of $43,000 was raised by all participating salons – an awesome effort in the name of a good cause (and good hair). Thank you to all our customers who booked appointments on this day and Anna for helping out. I even did my bit by keeping client’s laps warm, an essential service in my opinion.
Peace is restored
While we are excited about all of the above, we’re super excited to say that the construction crew that were working on the property next door have finished their work, so now we can enjoy a jackhammer-free day of doing what we love (for me that means sleeping in peace).
If you’ve neglected yourself over the dark days of winter, come on in and we’ll revamp your look with a new colour or cut – spring is the best season to try something new and with the construction crew gone from next door, you’ll enjoy listening to nothing but a rad soundtrack and some purring from little old me.
See you soon, Betty Boo xx
