Dreams Do Come True,
How lucky can you be (when you receive as a graduation present) a ticket to go on your dream vacation since you were six years old???
I would say very lucky! Sometimes when our wishes come, obstacles try to get in our way. BUT leave it to Hair Fairies to fix! A very bright young lady came to our location in CT and was very sad because if she did not get rid of her head lice issue she would not be able to go on her dream vacation. Fortunately we were able to fit her right in and do our Nit Zapping Treatment Process to rid her of head lice. She left confident with a smile on her face knowing that finally she would be able to go to Greece.
Finding out that you have lice at the last minute when you are traveling is a nightmare. Getting treated for head lice at Hair Fairies CT at the eleventh hour is Priceless!!!
Recently, we had a family come in with head lice. When the family first
came in, the daughter of the family was crying because she did not want
to sit in the chair. 2 1/2 hours later, the girl started crying because
she did not want to leave. Her mom said, "Don't worry, we are going to
come back in a couple of days." The girl responded, "Do you promise?"
This isn't the first time a child has been upset about leaving Hair
Fairies. Children have even asked to have their Birthday party at our
salon. At Hair Fairies, we do our very best to make your stay as
comfortable and entertaining as possible.So, if you're ever at one of
our salons, get ready to sit back and relax as we take care of your lice
problem; just be prepared, you might not want to leave!
Working at Hair Fairies the Head Lice Helpers is rewarding, interesting and yes most of the time fun. Being that the head lice removal process is long and laborious, we have plenty of time to get to know our clients very well.
During a group conversation a client asked the technicians on the floor, "What do you tell people you do for a living?" Almost instantly and unanimously a reply "We lie"
One tech said "I'm a hairdresser." Another said "I'm a guidance counselor." There were a few others called out, when a client states" Well technically you are not lying you are counselors and hairdressers." At this point one tech speaks out "Honies, there is no shame in what we do. I say the truth. I'm a pediculosis specialist!" The room burst into laughter.
In the end we all agreed, we are PEDICULOSIS SPECIALISTS!
Here at Hair Fairies, our motto is Care, Nurture, and Educate and we
strive to accomplish that with every client that comes thru our door.
Recently, we were working on a little girl who had a lot of questions
for us. She asked about the life cycle of the bug, how long it could
live in the environment, etc. After about 10 minutes of questions, one
of the technicians said, "You are going to be a lice expert after
today!" She said, " I know, that's the point. That way, when I'm older, I
can work here." Usually kids want a movie, or a video game while they
are in the chair,. But not this little girl, she is looking for a job!
Here at Hair Fairies we try and make the salon as
comfortable as possible. We want everyone to have a great experience in an
unhappy situation. Friends have been made by both the children playing and the
moms bonding over their laundry duties.
We have kids playing in the kitchen, reading books, or drawing pictures
for our growing art wall. Iíve heard kids say they love coming here to draw a
picture to put up on our wall. The children are so thankful and they show it in
the pictures they draw for us. Not only are we appreciative of the lovely
pictures they draw for us, but it makes other kids feel more comfortable in
knowing they are not the only ones coming in. Lice happens and we are here to
ease you back to normalcy as soon as possible.
We are excited and looking forward to work with a school in the East
Bay! Got a call form the director who asked us to do an on site school
screening and perhaps a workshop. She has heard us from multiple
parents and peers who have used our services before. We are glad to
Girls need their beauty, like a four year old girl that was treated for head lice at our location in CT. She loved our fairy color gel and at the time of checkout when I was showing the mom the products she need it, her daughter says " mom I need a fairy color gel" to what the mom says "you want it, you don't need it" and the little girl replies to her mom, "no, you don't understand I need the fairy gel because I NEED to look pretty".
This is what a loyal client had to say about Hair Fairies!!!
"We have been using Hair Fairies since our dermatologist recommended them 7 years ago when my triplets were in 2nd grade. Then the Connecticut location was not yet open so we went to New York City. We tried so many methods to remove the lice from our triplets 7 years ago and every method was not effective, very frustrating, and extremely time consuming. The kids have gotten lice from their school/camp about 4 times in the last 7 years and each time we go to Hair Fairies (first 2 times in New York City and last 2 times in Connecticut office). We are so glad for the Connecticut office that opened about 2 years ago so we don't have to travel all the way to New York City each time. All 3 employees in the Connecticut office are such nice people and experts at removing lice. All lice was removed from all our family members the very first time. We always come for the 2nd treatment/check and then again for the final check 2 weeks later. Thank you so much Hair Fairies."
This is such a great feeling to know that someone can rely on our company and trust us to do the tedious job that it is removing head lice and follow us trough out the years.
It means a lot to us as a company!!!
Recently, we had two different families being treated at the same time
for head lice at our Chicago location. While they were being treated,
two of the girls from different families started talking. The realized
they were both in 3rd grade, liked the movie Frozen, and also played
basketball. They hit it off so well that after the treatment, they had
scheduled a play date in the near future. Hair Fairies has been bringing
families together since 1999!
Our client came in with a gift! It was a box of
chocolates and all of us were very thankful and satisfied! Our director
of operations actually went around and pass the chocolates around so we
could have them while we were with our clients!
When the day comes when all of us know the saying, "playing Hair
fairies" would probably be the day Head lice infestation would be at an
all time low :-)
We had a mother who came in to drop this picture of
her kids playing hair fairies. It was such an adorbs moment and a proud
one too for all us. They have been with Hair Fairies and were screened
for head lice. We even came to their school to check their classmates.
A willing husband,
We had a client at our Hair Fairies Treatment Salon in CT, that found out she had head lice after taking a shower in the middle of the night and towelling herself dry. She starts crying and her husband sees her desperation and volunteers to comb her out. After a while of combing her, she starts asking her husband "did you comb me out this way, that way?", to this he starts to loose his patience and tells her "I married you for LIFE not for LICE". At that point she had to laugh and was able to relax a bit.
When she came to Hair Fairies I told her to give thanks to her willing husband because a least he was willing to help her out!
Recently, we had a family come in that had head lice. While we were
working on the family, the mother had mentioned that her children had
head lice two years ago. Every since then, she would apply our
prevention oil around their hairline. FOR 2 YEARS! This school, she
thought her children were old enough, and probably not at risk of
getting head lice anymore, so she stopped using the prevention oil. 2
months later, her daughters got it again. In conclusion, it's better to
be safe than sorry. The best prevention you can do for girls is keeping
the hair up and tight, with a dime sized amount of prevention oil around
New Yorkers are known for being very hard workers, and one of our little hair fairies client started young. A mom and I were talking about work, when her daughter tells me, "I work too." I told her that is awesome. She starts telling me of a secret service club that she has where they help others. She showed me her business card, and showed me a folder, where they write about the different cases they have. She gave me a business card, and let me take a photo of her folder before she left.
This week, our Chicago location has been dealing with EXTREMELY cold
weather. Most places even shut down due to the cold, BUT NOT Hair
Fairies! During this time, they had a client that noticed her daughter
had unfortunately picked up a case head lice. She lived over an hour
away and tried to find someone that could help her. Hair Fairies came to
the rescue and were able to get everyone in their family
checked/treated. No weather can stop us from helping you!
