|The wildly talented Jennifer Disorda|
Jennifer Disorda of Xentrix Hair Saloon in Hoosick Falls, New York is the responsible party and I’m thrilled to bits! (n.b, that’s Saloon NOT Salon. Yeah, I got a lovely glass of vino while my hair was snipped and colored up)
Before I got on the road for this weekend visit, Helen texted to say she had a surprise for me. Boyhowdy, I wasn’t expecting this!
I’ve kvetched about my ultra thin (or as hairdressers and friends oh so diplomatically term it, “fine”) bunny fur before at least a couple of times. I’m sure of it. I gave up on trying to find the bestest, most flatteringly hairstyle eons ago. OK – truth – I don’t think I ever looked – not even once. I was that certain that nothing could ever be done with the slight pile of fluff on my head.
Ding Dong, I was wrong!
|Texting while purple and YES, hair now matches the bag.|
I only mention it but, if you're in the area – upstate New York/downstate Vermont – you owe it to yourselves to make an appointment with Jennifer. Serious and true!
After the Big Fun Hair Time, Helen and I scooped up her husband John and the girls and motored over to Pangaea in North Bennington. On the outside, the place is vigorously unflashy, simple and modest, I would never have guessed that this joint would be so incredible on the inside.
There’s a bar/lounge section and a formal dining room. We chose the gorgeous, deep ruby hued lounge with its odd, vaguely skeletal, sorta brain-like drawings. OOF it was awesome!
I ordered the Bangkok Thai stir fry – beautifully light and peppery. If I lived here, I know I’d become a regular. Apparently, they can make many of their dishes vegetarian. Fabulous! Also too, their cocktail menu looked pretty amazing.
Wow, what a great day!
