Now that I've been back from vacation for a few weeks and things have calmed down a little in the salon, I thought it would be a good time to catch up on my blog posts. Vacation was great, it was nice getting out of LA for a while and getting the chance to relax for a little bit, but towards the end of it I was ready to get back into the salon and cutting hair again. Generally, I don't bring my tools home to cut hair when I'm back--most hair cutting tools that professional stylists use are pretty expensive (at least the clippers, shears, and clipper blades) and I don't trust checking them. The only updates I really have for the salon at the moment is that we're finally getting air conditioning, most guys who came in to the salon said it wasn't that bad--maybe they they were just being polite because working in there was pretty hot with the weather we've been having in Culver City lately. Now that I've been cutting hair in the Culver City location I've noticed they don't enforce the 4-6 no parking on Sawtelle very much. (I've had a lot of guys ask about that while getting their haircut) But still it's an "at your own risk" type of thing. Another tip--there's been a speed trap on Sepulveda a lot lately, it seems like everyday I see multiple people pulled over on Sawtelle that they've caught. No one who was coming to the salon fortunately, but just wanted to give everyone a heads up. They have a few red light cameras right around the salon on Sepulveda as well, so be on the lookout for that if you come that way to the salon. As I build, weekends have been filling up a little faster. Most Friday nights, I don't have any slots left for haircuts for Saturday, this Friday it's already 9 and I still have a handful of spots. Lately same-day has been hard to do on the weekends, especially if there are only a couple times that work for you.
Just wanted to check in with everybody, hope you had a good 4th of July and to see you in the salon soon!
