Robert Hundley

Not sure if you have seen the motion picture, ‘Steel Magnolias?’ It was enjoyment. I just observed it at the Choptack generate-in.

There is a scene the place Dolly Parton, an owner of a beauty salon, suggests, “You simply cannot rely on any individual who does their very own hair. It is just not regular. I can spot a bottle occupation at 20 paces.” All of us ladies have an understanding of how essential the beauty salon is. There is no these types of point as pure natural beauty. All of us want a minimal assistance.

In a lot of strategies that scene reminds me of a indication above Ann DeWitte’s work station: “I’m a beautician, not a magician”.

1 day a youthful cousin of mine stated she experienced been to Hooter’s. I spoke up, “Oh, how old are you”?

“That’s as well young,” I stated.

Ann not lacking a conquer spoke up,”Oh, Becky and I would’ve hardly ever accomplished just about anything like that.” (Her eyes wide open up.) We all laughed.

Of training course it’s not just the girls that repeated the shop. I remember a time when I was there yrs back that Paul Head was there as well obtaining in on the tale telling. His young son Colton loved listening and jumped right into the conversation.

Definitely a neighborhood establishment. Come on in and sit a spell. Get all prettied up. Get a cup of coffee and love by yourself.

It’s the ideal area to sit and talk about the great ole days or catch up with what is occurring all around town. Truly feel free of charge to have a seem all-around at Ann’s handcrafted jewellery and Matilda Jane’s Slide line.

Also on screen is artwork accumulated by Ann. Danny Brooks and I did acrylic pours. Tata Andres the tree photographs. Zaley Otto-Rogersville Bloom and Laura Lee Price the postcard collage.

Ann labored at Headhunter’s for seven several years then offered beauty provides before opening her very own business enterprise with all made use of products for $755 on Hasson Avenue.

She’s experienced four various destinations in excess of the many years but always The Searching Glass.

Ann was just declaring the other working day how she experienced purchasers from as much away as Florida. Well I applied to appear from Saudi Arabia and Sweden to get my hair carried out .

I spent many hours in the store more than the a long time and tried several colours with the latest becoming purple highlights. Up coming time silver for me. Don’t forget Ann Russell Red?

When Kathy Petersen and her partner Ralph opened Olde Towne Emporium across the road Ann was one of the initially to welcome them, and Kathy has been a loyal customer at any time considering that.

Ann has a coronary heart of gold and is concerned in community service. Her partner Mark is a Metropolis Alderman and also writes a column for the Company Review in addition to becoming County Commissioner.

Cannot wait for my subsequent appointment coming up before long. May just improve my thoughts and go fusia. It is a woman’s prerogative to modify her brain right after all. Anything at all goes at The Hunting Glass.

Ann has a revolving door coverage about staffing at The On the lookout Glass. All previous stylist such as Gena Cassity, Bethany Allen and Erica Mayes however have keys and prevent by sometimes to acquire on a shopper. Comprehensive time stylists incorporate Jung Cooper, Ashley Spears, Amanda Elkins and Jera Greer.

Ann and her crew are readily available from 8 a.m. right until carried out. Appointment favored, but walk-ins are welcomed. They specialize in color, relaxing perms, reducing and waxing. And even specific situations: like hair for weddings, proms and funerals.

You are going to require a cup of coffee at opening time.
