Where to begin…..let’s see. A while back I posted that there was a particular strip of stores on Person street that I wanted to check out. One such place was “the salon with the orange banner”. For some reason I can never remember the name of the salon from the time I see it, to the time I get home about 4.3 minutes later. Go fig.
Well, I have been trying to brush up on the Raleigh blogs and came across the Raleigh Chronicle. As I was perusing the headlines I saw an ad to the right for Howard Jacobs Salon and it hit me. HEY that is the place! Oh finally! (insert happy dance here)
Little did I know what awaited me. I clicked the link and started reading about the owner/stylist Anson Howard and I thought, hmm THAT name sounds familiar….I did a little digging and GREAT ODEN’S RAVEN it was my long lost hairdresser from 5 years ago!
I started thinking about what ever happened to make me change salons and it hit me. Anson worked for another salon and that’s where I started having him do my hair. Then one day he was gone! I wasn’t told of where he went (I guess there is some debate over this practice) so I stuck with my salon. Well, after the only other person I wanted doing my hair moved away, I have been salon-hopping ever since. For 5 years! I contacted Anson and we set an appointment for yesterday and I couldn’t be happier with my cut!
For those of you who think this is a silly post about a silly girl who needs to think about more than a good haircut, then you obviously never had your curly hair named “the beast” in high school. So, to everyone else who wants a great haircut, and a chance to support local business, check out HOWARD JACOBS Salon on Person Street! And tell them Andrea sent you !
