DiZazzo The University of ALL THAT ZAZZ Cosmetology Ciao Bella, It was my hus- band David who brought it to my at- tention that when he picks me up from the salon and has to wait he has learned some-thing new. I was kind of surprised when I heard that. So he elaborated. The clients and stylists who discuss everything from politics, views from differ- ent perspectives on which schools are best, the era they grew up in and the hairstyles from that era they had to abandon to reading the articles from magazines he would only find in a salon. I remember the Dean of a local college told me I was getting a better education than most of his students. Leaving home to live on my own and work in a salon (I styled his wife's hair at her home) was the best kind of education since all I was experiencing was not learned from a book. Your trip to a beauty salon will prove an educational rn41 ilJrOln visit. Your interac- tion with people starting with a pleasant greeting from the reception- ist (mine is awe- some!) to the sham- poo girl who suds you up in massage delight! She may discuss a bit of his- tory or how she will be on the cutting floor next week since she has put in her appren- tice hours. In any case it's all good and not what you hear~about every day. The hundreds of professional dif- ferent products for your hair; sometimes you can hear a stylist explain which is the best one for you. From the latest movie re- views to theatre reviews in New York or the latest vaca- tion spot you will hear it all in a salon. Gossip7 Not in my shop!
