during my recent quest for free tires, and before manifesting the tires in a completely bizarre and unexpected way (which you may read here), i began my search on craigslist. sure that i would find someone in nyc looking to unload 3 tires – i did not. what i did find, was a salon in soho looking for a haircut model and i was in need of a free haircut!
it’s been years since i was in the industry, but back in a previous life, i was the manager for a high end hair care line. i spent 4+ years travelling around the country visiting the top salons, selling hair products and getting to know stylists in the best of the best salons in the united states. occasionally, some of the country’s top talent would offer me a complimentary cut or color. a pretty awesome perk, i know. . . .
back to craigslist. the salon was sam brocato, located at 42 wooster street, in the heart of soho. in the last stretch of her two year apprenticeship, a beautiful young woman named christina was in need of hair model for a short cut, and along with 3 tires, i also wanted a new short haircut.
i felt like i won the lottery when christina responded to my e-mail letting me know i had been chosen for the free haircut. not powerball or anything, but at the very least a good scratch-off ticket.
by the time she was done, it was apparent that her talent was as large as her heart. if it’s what she aspires to, one day i’m sure i’ll see her name in the style magazines along with the likes of frederick fekkai, oribe & christophe – at least i hope so. i can do my small part by introducing christina to you today. you can do your part by booking an appointment with her – you wont be disappointed – and . . . you’ll have an amazing new style!
to christina, i thank you – for your time, for your talent & for picking me! may success follow you always.
