I need to get my hair cut again. (yeah I know - What hair? Ha ha)
I've finally found a stylist who cuts my hair the way I like it - and when you're a "receder" such as myself, that's not exactly as easy as it sounds. Normally they cut the top just too-short enough so that it kind of sticks up all pointy and uncontrollable. Then my only choices are to either "go with it" or plaster it down with water and hair spray so I look like a middle-aged Alfalfa.
I just have one question about hair salons. Who decided that it was OK for them to incorporate sorry puns and phonetically-abused spelling into their shop names? This seems to be a problem of near biblical proportions. In fact, right here in little old St. Cloud we have stylists with names like Kwik Kutz, The Hairitage Shoppe and Shear Perfection.
With the exception of photocopying services (we have a Kopy Kats here as well), I can't think of any other businesses who try so hard to sound so - clever? What is it about these kinds of places (both image-modifying services perhaps?)
So why is it you don't find these kinds of names in other businesses or services?
Because, who would go to a bank called The Safe Bet or a Medical Center called Kwality Kure or a church named Sir Saves-a-lot? See what I mean?
My feeling is, if you're gonna screw around with your name, you might as well do it right. So to help out, I've created my very own list of...
Top 10 Worst Hair Salon Names
1. Shear Nonsense
2. De Hair Do Do, De Hair Da Da
3. Snip 'n Stitch
4. The Clip Dip
5. Barber Anne's
6. Hairy Krishna
7. Kutz Klutz
8. The Locks Mess Monsters
9. Oops I Cropped My Pants (may also apply to scrapbooking stores)
and finally, the number 10 worst name for a hair salon...
10. Hair Kommandant
And just a little word to the wise: If you ever run across a shop with one of these hair-brained names, I caution you to enter at your own risk.
