A Sassy Gritizen, Hairapy, and, er, Dolly Parton?
So, what do a sassy Tacoma beauty business icon, authoress, and hair magician have to do with hairapy and Dolly Parton? Find out easily by reading Aura Mae’s little book that could: Get Some Hairapy…A Hairdresser’s Prescription for Happiness. Aura Mae, of downtown Tacoma’s Azarra Salon, is a Board Certified Haircolorist, educator, blogger, and writer (among many other things, too numerous to note here!). I mean, ladies and gentlemen, how many times do you dish with your hair stylist? C’mon! It’s a given phenomenon—and it goes beyond just dishing. Hairdressers hear positively EVERYTHING from the life joys, hurts, issues, and secrets from their clients. In Get Some Hairapy… Aura captures this universal truth, and with great humor, sass, class, insights, wisdom, and kick a** attitude, she delivers. And she tells it like it is. Ah, but not in the way you would think. She takes you on the road of her own life, in the good, bad, and the so-so of her own experiences, coupled with sincere love of friends, family, and community, and infused with those laugh out loud moments. With such chapters titled as: Stop shooting yourself in the foot and then wondering why your foot hurts? No one keeps you a victim without your permission, It doesn’t cost you anything to be nice, and Have a little fun, you can’t help but walk away refreshed and READY to be happy. It’s time, don’t you think?
And Dolly Parton endorsed this book. Dolly Parton! The Dolly Parton! Her quote is on the front cover—I laughed out loud—I love this book! Besides my mom who shares the same birthday and birth year with Dolly, how many Gritty Tacomans can claim a Dolly Parton endorsement?
Check it out, readers and bloggers. The book was published back in 2005; so I am late to the party, but still havin’ fun. And, a sequel book from this talented dynamo is forthcoming.
So, get some Hairapy, Tacoma, from the hairdresser that talks back!
To get the book, take a look at www.infinitypublishing.com, Amazon.com, or stop by the Azarra Salon and get yourself a copy direct from the authoress herself. For more Aura Mae fun, check out the Hairapy site by clicking HERE and then check out her blog and salon website HERE.
