feathers, Feathers...FEATHERS!!!!


"Yankee Doodle went to town riding on a Pony,
Stuck a FEATHER in his hair,
and Called it Macaroni"



Feathers are the hottest new thing in Hair extensions. The paparazzi, in recent days, has caught many celebs donning colorful plumage while the runways in New York City and Paris have had their fair share of bird tufts this season.
Now is your time to shine (or should we say "fly")

At Static Salon, we may not be calling the Feathers in our hair "Macaroni" but we have heard some call our feathers Fancy, Cool and Cute! We also are not riding into town on a pony, but we are definitely strut the streets with a new found "air"!

Come to Static Salon for your Feather Fix!!!

HOLIDAYS...CAME AND WENT...NOW IT'S TIME TO CATCH UP THE BLOG

We hope all of you had a happy, healthy and relaxing Holiday season.

We at Static Salon had a very eventful December and had so much fun getting to spend so much time with each of our clients and hear about all of there Holiday plans. We continue to feel blessed to have each of our clients in our lives and know that Static Salon has the best clients/friends ever!

Here is a little recap on our December festivities...

Lets Start with our MAMA event, "Less Mall, More MELROSE"

(now, lets be honest...all of our events include food, but, is there really anything better than hair and food? We don't think so)
"Less Mall, MORE MELROSE" event turned out to be a great event for all of Melrose. In our salon, we had chances to win Static Salon gift certificates (Bianca, its a good thing you brought your awesome husband Dave along with you...he is a good guesser!) and we had cupcakes too.



Throughout Melrose there were many food trucks, which we at Static Salon indulged in. When Static Salon client, Tamera, left the salon, she was sucked into the crepe truck but the delicious smell. She had to buy one of each of the dessert crepes and then come back to the salon to share. It was a sight to behold...all 6 crepes out on trays in the middle of the styling floor with every stylist and every client in the salon at the time, with a fork in hand and going to town. We argued and joked over which ones were our favorites and were all ready to kiss Tamera for hooking us up with the yummiest thing around.




To celebrate the Holiday's, before Static Salon closed for a couple days, we had a Hot Chocolate Bar. Stylists, Clients and our Melrose friends had a fun time creating, what they believed, was the winning Hot Chocolate with plenty of delicious mix-ins.
Is there a better way to celebrate the December festivities than to sip on Hot Chocolate?

Of course there were many other things we did on a daily basis throughout December, most of which was spending quality time with most of our clients.

Again we are thankful for each and every one of you Static Lovers and Hope that 2011 is a successful year filled with Joy and Happiness!!!

ALONG THE WAY...

On October 17, 2010 Static Salon and Friends joined 30,000 other people for a little walk around the streets of LA to raise money and fight against AIDS.
Along the way we saw others just as passionate as we were to be walking on this most incredible day. The energy that was created by 30,000 people of all ages was unlike anything that could possibly been imagined.

No one walking knew the where the other 30,000 walkers were from, what there background was, what kind of a house they lived in or how much money they made annually.
But we all, for one afternoon were connected by something that matter more than all that stuff. We were all out, walking in the rain for 6 miles, to fight for people that we may never meet or know. We were fighting for others to live a longer life, we were fighting for health, we were fighting for loved ones living with this disease and in honor of loved ones that have passed on. We were walking because we believed in something greater than ourselves. In one afternoon 30,000 Los Angelenos' hearts came together for one great cause and in the grand scheme of life...there is nothing more special or more moving than one giant group coming together in LOVE.
Along the way...we had fun too!
We posed for pictures
We cheered with the crowd
We smiled the entire time
We drank lots of water
We joked around and connected with each other
We remembered how much we love each other
We totally bonded
We showed pride for our team
Along the way...a little piece of us changed. We became just a little bit better people.
Thanks AIDS Walk! We had a blast.

Check out the next blog post for more on Team Static!
