At the Salon: Changing More Than My Hair!


I’m sitting at my salon, under a dryer, with more foil wrapping than a Thanksgiving turkey– and have still managed to change someone else’s clothes! (Talk about multi-tasking!)

Details: Silvana, my wonderful stylist, was about to put on her apron when I arrived. She said she thought she’d have to get rid of it, because the Velcro strip (for adjusting the length of the neck strap) was ruining her clothes, snagging everything it touched. I took a look.

Before: the Velcro strip from hell!

Before: the Velcro strip from hell! You can actually see threads on it where poor Silvana’s clothes got snagged. (You’re looking at the underside of the bib of the apron.)

You can see the Velcro strip here. I thought it would be pretty easy to fix: just remove the part of the strip that was exposed (she’d already adjusted the size). Naturally, she had plenty of scissors, so I got to work.

I carefully snipped each stitch, and voila: In less than 3 minutes, the snagging problem was eliminated!

During: removing the Velcro

During: removing the Velcro. This simply involved snipping the stitches that held it in place, one at a time, being careful not to cut the fabric underneath.

So Silvana’s apron looks fabulous, and it won’t snag her tops! Oh, and I’ll let you know how my hair turns out. ; )

After: Velcro under control!

After: Velcro under control! (It’s still there, under the neck strap shown here; I just removed the excess.)

P.S. My hair looks as fab as Silvana in her apron!

  1. Managing to post to a blog from under a salon dryer. Definitely a new millennium. 😉
