YOU'VE EARNED YOUR GOLDEN SHEARS IF YOU REMEMBER..

Postby chris the limey » 15 Jul 2007 11:16 pm

You know you\'ve earned your golden shears if you can remember:



How to use a Briann Drum flat-topper comb
Telling a client with peach coloured hair that it would turn blonde when it was dry (and you were right)
Wax was new. Wax was cool. Wax for every client.
You\'ve ever done a spiral perm on a client.
You ever worked in a salon that closed half day on a Saturday.
You can wind a roller set in less than 10 minutes.
At one time your column was full of weekly regulars instead of 6 weekly regulars.
A comb-up was a mid week appointment that earned a salon revenue.
You\'ve ever created a \"work of art\" with a rubber cap and a crochet hook.
You remember mixing bleach with 60 Vols peroxide.
Mousse was more popular than any other styling product.
Retail was a word that had nothing to do with the hairdressing industry.
You feel that disconnected haircuts go against everything you ever learned.
Perm solution came in gallon containers delivered every week.
You convinced clients to cut off all of their hair after watching Demi Moore in \"Ghost\".
You know that \"shingle\" isn\'t just the name of a pebbled beach.
When clients began asking for a \"Rachel\" cut, you wondered which one Rachel was.
You remember when reps would call every week.
You ever wondered what serum would be useful for.
You were so amazed by wax on a stick (Bedhead) that you used it on every client.
You\'ve ever recommended Hot Oils as a deep conditioning treatment.
Your colour clients were either blonde or mahogany. Period.
You\'ve used a diffuser on your hair-dryer and your client loved the result.
You can make your own neutraliser if you run out of stock.
You\'ve ever talked about a client without worry because \"she can\'t hear me under the hood dryer\".
You once boasted the benefits of a \"precision cut\".
Once upon a time you only used your thinning scissors to thin out thick hair.
You recall an actress named Farrah Fawcett being responsible for many a 60 minute blowdry.
You\'ve ever used setting lotion on more than one client in the same day.
You once felt proud at being able to do foil highlights.
You remember having to educate clients why semi-permanent colour cost the same as permanent.
Your curling iron was plugged in at your station all day.
You had more than one size of curling iron plugged in at your station all day.
Every client left with hairspray applied.
You used clippers to shave the back of an \"arched bob\".
Serving cappuccino to clients was considered \"posh\".
When somebody tells you they once had a wedge, you don\'t think for a second they could be talking about a piece of cheese.
You\'ve ever back combed or teased a head of curly hair.
Not one of your male clients would ever consider having their hair coloured in the salon.
And finally, you know what the machine in the photo at the top of this article was used for!

:ohmy: Almost golden here...sad.
I never used 60 vol or made my own neutralizer.
And I think your comb up was what we here called comb-out [mid week]
I\'m trying to thing of other things, but think you have it covered :laugh:

Ohhh..If you know a frosting is not what just goes on cakes.

You gave out complementary rain caps and hair nets.

LOL.

How about when upselling meant getting your clients to try the "acid perm" instead of their regular alkaline one? I would do that all day!

I love this post, mainly because ive done most of it lol. oh and if anyone is interested you make neutraliser with hair aid warm water and conditioner, and i used to do amazing colour effects with a cap and hook and colour that looked like the rings of jupiter lol,
Mousse was popular in the early 80s mainly because the only other product we had was this amazing stuff called wax and believe me i used it on everyone, Foil was something i used in my kitchen, i mean what the bloody hell could you do with it in a salon ??? it reacts with perm lotion lol.
Setting lotion came in 1001 different colours and my fav was sapphire, funky blue colour and smelt like sweets, and yes id put the rollers in, in 10 mins, still can if ive a mind to lol. As for my diffuser, i loved that thing, every client with their head between their knees while you \"did\" the back and when finished half a can of lacquer to finish it all off nice. Not hairspray though, proper hard hold, lung rotting lacquer, just so it stayed in mind lol.
Anyway thats a bit of my trip down memory lane, dont bring back the old days haha. Oh apart from perms, everyone should have a perm, wouldnt belive how quick your till fills up when perms are popular,and the gallon containers are very economic lol.

Hairspray came in a gallon and was made aerosol by turning on your air compressor

Paid the shampoo girl or dispensary girl $.05 for every brush she cleaned

Know that a rat is not just an animal, even better you know what to do with one.

Your hood dryers had footrests and ashtrays

You diluted your bulk developer (used to come in gallons of 100vol clear I'm sure I still have the conversion chart somewhere)

You know the difference between angel wings, angel bangs (fringe) and mall bangs.

People wanted pink, blue, violet or peach hair...only in pastel

You bought shampoo for the bubbles, not what it did for the hair

You thought hair was hollow and if you cut the ends after a perm, your perm would fall out

You people have made me feel old.

I find it amazing that I can do all that and more. What I find even more amazing is the hairdressers I meet now that can't do 1/10th of that. "I don't perm" or "I don't razor cut" or "yes I razor cut" until you see the results....

So many wouldn't know what to do with a rubber cap or crochet hook.....

I still think mousse is an UNDERRATED product.

They probably haven't SEEN a rubber cap, you can still get plastic disposeable ones.

Personally, I LIKE mousse! Especially for roller sets! :happy:

Brilliant Thank You Chris!

I learned all this in the UK and bought it all with me to Australia in the 80`s. However Ozzy blokes did get colour & the more creative the better. I do miss my easi mess instead of foil. I still use a cap & hook. I still love my difusser. Remember when acid perms attached to amazing machines with "sensors" lol. Clients didn`t need to buy retail because they only ever had their hair washed in the salon.

I am still trying to find ways to educate/convince my clients they should treat them selves to weekly visits.

As for the 60 vol ( Oh God I cringe) it was lethal.lol

Remember when hair padding in long hair was the norm. not the latest tool.

And a Beehive had nothing to do with Marge Simpson. (Nothing like it)

And clients unreal expectations where to copy famous people not carton charicters.
(Kids who want hair like Ben 10)

Oh and straightening irons where made with a 3 inch x 5 in plate & no you couldn`t curl with it.

hahahaha. So funny.
