POST-GAZETTE, NOVEMBER 2, 2012 Page 9 I 6 1111 by jdngela Cornacchio Hairo owner Johnny Marchio and receptionist Michele on site at the StyleFixx shopping extravaganza. (Photo by Angela Cornacchio) I Got Style Fixxed .... A few weeks back I wrote a preview to an event being held at the Boston Center for the Arts on Wednesday and Thursday of last week. The event coordi- nator Aria Walker was so gra- cious to extend an invitation. When I arrived there was a classy red carpet walkway with a brand new car being given away, it was then I knew this was going to be a great time. The shopping hours were from 5:00-10:00 pm and I figured if I was there by six, all should go well. They labeled it a shopping extravaganza and that it was. With what I thought was a nice quiet time to arrive, the lines were already wrapping around corners and ladies jumping from booth to booth. Through most of the night I found the longest of lines to All the way from Russia .... Sveinhildur Vilhjalmsottir and business partner travel with their winter warmers in the StyleFixx show even though being based from Russia.

Iconic member of the salon industry Johnny Marchio from Rock Paper Scissors Salon was on hand doing hair himself to promote Hairo's new venture on Newbury Street. Hairo is an innova- tive wash and blow-dry only salon. It has become a high demand and such a great idea for that quick fix. I couldn't pass up the opportu- nity to get my hair done by such a well-known stylist that while waiting I got a chance to chat with his re- ceptionist, Michele. She mentioned, "The concept of a blow-dry bar is awesome. Being right on Newbury we have women who are in town on business and come in for a blow-dry that will last them through the meetings. We even have a great following of women who will come in for a session that will last them a week." She explained to me the little tricks of the trade on making it to the gym and keeping that lus- cious blow-dry intact. Sorry ladies, can't reveal those secrets here but Johnny and his Hairo team will be happy to. You can find them at 135 Newbury Street. Call to book an appointment at 617-266-1199, or check out all they have to offer at www. washandblowdry, com. As I continued to travel through the room each booth I passed seemed to offer so much. L'ecole Nuit was a cou- ture lingerie line, The Euro- pean Wax Center was offer- ing free eyebrow service and Finale Desserts were there tempting with their flourless gluten free chocolate as well as Bad Kat KupKakes and in my opinion the best in Soprano Olga Peretkyo wowed the audience with her performance in BSO's The Nightingale.

I was graced with my first opportunity to enjoy the "Arts Around Town" last week with the BSO and the stun- ning Charles Dutoit as con- ductor and elegant Olga Peretyatko, soprano per- formed "The Nightingale" and it took all I had to hold back the tears for such magnifi- cent artists. With Symphony Hall being so enriched in cul- ture and always having leg- endary performances this one coming is nothing short of a mega-hit.
