To Have Lice Or Do Not Have Lice??
calls from many clients asking what does lice and/or nits look like.
Also, clients say they were checked already, so they're only worried
about the kids. I always ask whether they were checked dry or wet.
Usually the answer is dry but the way we guaranteed that your lice free
is performing a dry check and wet comb through with a lice comb. Its the
best way to make sure there is no bugs in your hair that might move
away from the area your checking while dry.- HFChi
You know how we have our little cute Hair Fairies saying at our
location. For example, "A Bug can spread a Hug," We over heard from a
family that their school now is encouraging "Air Kisses" instead of
hugging! We laughed on the floor when it was mentioned, and decided to
blog about it!! We can give it a little love and say, "Air Kisses
instead of hugging shows more love!" How do you like that one? smiles!
It's Turkey Licey Time!!!
wonderful holiday season is coming by. When family you haven't seen in
awhile will gather together to enjoy a well prepared dinner and good
cheer. Don't let the extra helping of turkey and stuffing make you
forget this is prime time for a lot of head to head contact. Remember "A
Hug Can Give You The Bug"!!! -HFChi
the Holiday’s coming up families are making sure they are lice free before they
travel and visit loved ones. They want to make sure that when they visit their
loved ones they aren’t leaving a little extra gift behind. Here in Dallas we
have a lot of college students coming home for the holidays and moms want to
make sure they don’t come home to visit and leave them a little extra surprise
when they leave. We had a concerned mother call Hair Fairies Dallas and book a
lice screening for her daughter. She said, “I want to schedule it right after
she lands so she goes straight from the airport to Hair Fairies, she’s not
coming in my house without a letter from you!” We worked with her schedule and
her daughter took a taxi straight from the airport to our salon. She was lice
free and we made sure we gave her a letter for her mother stating that.
Thankfully they will be having a lice free turkey day!
Mom in tears,
I was on my way back from lunch with a slice of pizza in hand, to our Hair Fairies Treatment Salon in CT when I see a mom with tears in her eyes and getting her daughter out of the car. I approached her and asked, "are you going to Hair Fairies?". She said "yes my daughter has lice and I don't know what I'm I going to do". She was a nervous wreck. I said to her well if your little one has lice she is in the right place. You have nothing to worry about. I am on my lunch break right now but I'll put my pizza down and screen her. As I was doing our head lice screening process I was educating the mom on head lice and noticed that the little girl never had lice. She had been in the park and had wood chips on the scalp and throughout the hair and mom had confused it with head lice.
When I showed the mom what head lice looks like, she let out a sigh of relieve and was very appreciative that I had stopped my lunch break to help her.
We had a blast dressing up as cowboys, native americans, and a burlesque
aka saloon lady for this year's Halloween festivities at Hair Fairies
in San Francsico! We all thought of Disney's Princesses themes
initially but some of the techs were not in favor of that...so we went
with Cowboys and the rest was history! Jessica face painted Tina's so
they were glam'ed up Native Americans, while Connie dressed it up in a
corset as a saloon Lady. It was spontaneous yet worked out in the end.
We called our theme Wild wild West!
"Mom, I have magic bugs in my hair, now you see it...now you don't" was the comment that a six year old told his mom when he was brushing his hair in front of the mirror after taking a shower before bed. The mom not making anything of it started checking her son's hair and discovered that he had nits, but didn't see any bugs. She panicked not knowing what
to do at that time of night and started searching online. Little did she know there was a service like our Hair Fairies treatment salon in CT to rid you of head lice. She called our location immediately, left a message and was able to come to us first thing in the morning. We took the time to explain everything to her. She was a little bit confused about not seeing the bugs when she was searching in her son's hair, and later discovered that he did in fact still have bugs when we were treating him. I explained you'll not be able to see the bugs. And when you part the hair they move away from the light and activity. Most importantly if you see nits then you KNOW definitively that at some point you must have or had a bug in your hair.
That is why at Hair Fairies not only do we remove lice but we also educate you!
If you are intrigued and appreciate the spirit of Halloween, please stop
by and check out any of our Hair Fairies locations. We have scary
ghouls, witches, and creepy spiders ready for tricker treaters! If you
have head lice and are in need of treatment then one of our friendly and
ever so ready technician will help you! With the extra cherry on top,
we will also be in costumes so please comment on YELP and mention to
your friends our Halloween Spirit. We are always SO excited for
Halloween and our salons and costumes exude that. We hope that this
will put you at ease and less occupied with the concern of your child
having Head Lice. We know it shouldn't be a big concern since you are
in good hands!
Anyone Can Get It!!!
Don't believe any myths about lice. Everybody can get it!
This week, we at Hair Fairies in San Francisco,
had the wonderful experience of being able to provide help, education
and comfort to people who can't afford our salon services. With the
dedicated assistance of a public school guidance counselor, we were able
to put together a workshop for parents, teaching them how to treat
their children and homes for head lice. Together with the school, who
invested in this problem for their families, we were able to provide
these parents with products at wholesale prices. Along with the
demonstration and the questions we were able to answer, these parents
are now prepared to handle head lice calmly and with minimal stress.
Both the families and school were very happy and thanked us warmly for
making the extra effort to bring these solutions to them.
My favorite hair place!!!
We had a fun time with a mom at our Hair Fairies salon in CT. She said "You guys must feel very proud of yourselves the way you handle kids. You have my daughter saying this is her favorite hair place in the world. I wish the hair salon i take her to get her hair cut was this nice... you should open a hair salon for kids as well. You guys are fantastic!!!" The mom was happy to know that they were all lice free after our treatments and she said she wouldn't hesitate for a second to come back here if they ever got head lice again.
The kids positive opinion's matter to us because they are sincere and it shows that we at Hair Fairies are doing our job, which is to rid you of head lice while having a good time!!!
are happy to announce that we are doing a workshop this evening at a
school! We were invited by a parent who got us in to do a workshop at
her school in the previous weeks. We were able to work with the school
to provide help, educate, and offer products. It went well so she
wanted to have us go do a workshop seminar at her other child's
We were requested to go over lice prevention,
treatment, questions and answers. We have samples to show and Folders,
letters, and products for parents to check out!
Halloween is near,
With Halloween around the corner everyone is excited including our Hair Fairies salon in CT.
Our salon is beautifully decorated. We've gotten many compliments from our clients. We have also
shared with them our thoughts on what costumes we should wear for Halloween and what they want to be for this special holiday.
I must say that for this year the angels are winning since many of the children want to dress as one.
As always Hair Fairies is huge on advise...so we want to let you know that when trying on costumes beware of the Head Lice since they are little vampires of nature!!!
Just the other day
one of our female technicians was working on a little girl. The mother
was so overwhelmed by how much activity we found on the girl she came
up to the technician and said "I would marry you...actually can I marry
you?" It was a great laugh for the client and technician. Always making
memories here at Hair Fairies, The Head Lice Helpers Inc. -HFChi
