I would like to introduce you to a gem of a place for a haircut.
Here, the women are professional, efficient, witty, humorous, chatty, empathetic, kind and gentle.
Put another way, they are two special ladies. To visit their establishment and to hear the conversation bantering back and forth about matters serious or trivial; to just sit back and enjoy the platitudes, and tidbits of wisdom on plagues (some framed) all over the walls; to smell the welcoming aroma of coffee freshly perked; or (this was my favourite relaxing moment, but sadly, no longer) to reach out and pet the dog sleeping at your feet and to know that its response to your touch was as dear as to its owner’s, any customer could not ignore the luxurious ease that this business establishment bestows upon its clientele.
Then comes the business transaction, which is as satisfying as the establishment.
When you leave, you realize how good you feel — just how nice things were for you. And best of all, all this was so inexpensive, especially if you are a senior like myself.
These two ladies brighten my day each time I visit them. I’m very happy to introduce you to two of Red Deer’s best — Selene and Trina — the two barbers on Little Gaetz Avenue downtown.
Why this, and not a criticism on an issue? I’ll let you wonder about that.
Larry Melnychuk, Red Deer
