    Hello my name is cherin, I have been a hair dresser for 7 years, now. I started working at a salon called Clippers Hair Design 3 months ago. I honestly love doing hair. Clippers has been open for 20 years it has not been updated at all. The owner Melba is a nail tech. I Really wish she would do something to the shop to make it more inviting. In all honesty if it wasn’t for the girls that work there I don’t think I could stand it. I have jumped from salon to salon and really was hoping to make this my home. I sincerely think if me and the other girls actually had the walk-ins we could do so great. Were located in c..c TX. I’m not sure if that is to far away or not but we would love for you to visit. Thank you . This salon seriously needs help.

    I have a friend who has a barber shop in the greater area of Los Angeles, Ca. It’s in dire need of a make over and help with finding barbers. It use to do well back 10 yrs ago with 12 barbers. The owner is going to have a heart attack one day with the total stress involve trying to keep this shop a float. He really needs some help and to bring some jobs back to his community that is suffering. I hope your show returns, because you have done wonderful work and I love your show tremendously. If your ever in the neighborhood please come by the shop called… No Color Lines Barber and Beauty Salon. You are invited so please come by one day. Thank you and hope to see you soon. 🙂

    Hi, my name is Alicia Thompson. I am a manager in a family owned hair therapy center. Lajoyce’s has been established since the early 80’s. We have recently moved to Riverside, Ca . We also have geared our salon focua towards hairloss/ hair restoration. We are dealing with people who have lost their self esteem in a lt of ways. Being so, change is not always easy, when you deal with family it is enen harder. It would be our greatest honor to have Tabatha to come and help us get on the right track. Thank you for your time.
