As it turns out, Reading Patch readers love their local hair stylists.
The article I posted Wednesday asking for your suggestions racked up more than 90 comments in less than 24 hours.
To my knowledge, that’s more comments than any single article ever posted on Reading Patch has ever attracted, ever.
Given the intense response, the best I can do for today’s Patch Picks is hit some of the highlights.
To see all of the (quite ferverent) responses, see the comments section in the .
Danielle McGarry, a publicist in New York City said she travels from New York to get her hair done at by Tara Konaxis.
“Tara has been my colorists and hair stylists for years, and I have gone to NYC stylists and paid top NYC dollar and still I make the four hour hike back to Reading to have Tara do my hair. She is amazing and should be working in New York or Newbury Street. The people of Reading and the surrounding areas are lucky to have someone like her available to them.”
Our request also triggered another comment from another-long distance Em-Belle-Ish customer. A user calling herself Mal Pond Wally had this to say.
“Stephanie Spinale at EMBELLISH is awesome. Reminds me of Edward Scissorhands.......... snip, snip, snip, snip, snippety snip and before you know it, you look amazing… I travel from Texas to have her perform her magic!”
Erin Calvo-Bacci, owner of and member of Reading Patch’s Moms Council said: “Cassie at is my go-to-girl, and I love her, and would be lost without her.”
“I've worked closely with Fringe and on town events such as the Chamber's Women Celebrating and events I've had at The Chocolate Truffle,” Calvo-Bacci said. “Many customers have come into The Chocolate Truffle and said ‘Fringe’ or ‘Lumina’ told us to come here. Gary at Fringe also cleared my work computer of a nasty virus!”
As I said, the above comments represent only highlights from those we received. , , and also got compliments. For more, see the original article.
