A Horse is a Horse, of Course.

Here at Bavilon, on the first day of our 14th year, our stylists came in on their day off for a color class. They tell us how much they learn and enjoy such classes. They appreciate our bringing in a Master Educator for our natural, organic and American made hair color. By each stylist utilizing a mannequin, they have individual hands-on instruction. The investment in these on-going classes helps keep us all up to speed on the latest trends. Bavilon proudly supports education in our salon, as we do for our local community.

Every now and then, one of our stylists will mention an amusing experience that a client shared with them. One of our younger stylists mentioned how one of her clients was singing a song about a talking horse, singing “A horse is a horse, of course, of course, and no one can talk to horse of course”. I responded that I was aware of that song and show, Mister Ed (1961-1966), which I enjoyed as a child. When I started to repeat the theme song, she exclaimed “That’s it!” Remembering the entire theme song made me realize I must have seen the show a lot! Back in those earlier days of television, TV theme songs were typically very catchy. Show producers realized such theme songs were an important part of the show, as they left a memorable first impression. As a result, we remember many of them to this day. Some even showed up in the top 40 including Happy Days, Laverne and Shirley, and Miami Vice, just to name a few.

Our stylist had a horse and found it funny they had a show about a talking one. I mentioned that even better, they had one about a talking car! My Mother the Car came out during the last year of Mister Ed. At the time a silly idea, but now many of our cars often do talk to us!

These shows may not have been groundbreaking, and they didn’t age well. That may be why they don’t show up that much anymore. Times change as do methods and styles, which is why we continue training and staying on top of the industry’s trends, so you don’t wind up looking like something from an old sitcom!

As we embark on our 14th year we would like to thank the Vail community for helping us grow all these years. At Bavilon, we work as a team and train as a team. This level of service is not all that common these days, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.

In a time when old-fashioned caring service seems to be a thing of the past, you can still find it at Bavilon Salon. Free unhurried consultations with the stylist of your choice is a great way to get acquainted. It is a co-operative environment in which the stylists recognize they all have different approaches, and work as a team to best satisfy clients’ varying needs.

Please stop in for a look! We look forward to the opportunity to please. Our stylists’ profiles, full menu with fair up-front pricing, and easy on-line booking are all at Bavilonsalon.com. Or call us at (520) 762-8787 and we will be happy to assist you.

Better care, Better hair!
