A Hair Raising Deal - 05/08/14

  This is going to be a quickie blog because it's about a Saving You Money story I'm working on that airs in about an hour.  I'm on deadline--- but wanted to let you in on this hair raising deal.  
   Speaking for myself, a good haircut and color makes me feel like a new woman. A good salon, where the stylists are highly trained in the latest technique, is going to charge you anywhere from $150 to $300 for that service. 
    If that's not in your beauty budget at the moment, let me let you in on a little secret.  Many high end salons here in Nashville will cut your hair and even color it for FREE! 
All you have to do is agree to be a hair model for a few hours.   Stylists at these salons are making frequent trips to New York and LA where they're learning new tricks of the trade.  They come back and teach other fellow stylists and the only way to learn is with practice, right?  Who wouldn't be a guinea pig to save three C-notes?
     Watch tonight's Saving You Money segment to find out how it works and how you can sign up.  If you miss it, don't worry.  You can always catch it later at fox17.com under the Saving You Money tab.
      Here's to great hair!!!

GIANT EARTHWORMS RETURN

LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) -- Giant worms! No, we're not talking about a summer horror flick but the result of spring showers. Rare, giant earthworms are appearing on the Palouse Prairie in Idaho. Worm lover Cass Davis tells the Lewiston Tribune he found three foot-long worms while hiking last weekend. He thinks they're giant Palouse earthworms, which can grow up to a yard long. The worms were believed to have been extinct until a researcher found one a decade ago.

SEX FOR DRUG TESTS

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -- It's a case involving sex and drugs -- but with a twist. Now a lab tech is going to prison. Prosecutors in Albuquerque, New Mexico, say Jayson Bice offered to fix women's drug tests in exchange for sex. He's been sentenced to six years. A jury earlier convicted Bice of extortion and accepting a bribe. He pleaded guilty in April to two other extortion counts.

HOUSTON GORILLAS

HOUSTON (AP) -- It's a $28 million dream home. But the residents are just a bunch of big apes. The Houston Zoo is showing off its new gorilla quarters. Seven of the endangered primates now live in the new state-of-the-art indoor and outdoor exhibit. A family of three of those gorillas are transplants from the Bronx Zoo in New York. It took Houston Zoo officials four years of fundraising and construction to make the gorilla home a reality.

WATER USE APP

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) -- Some California school kids are turning high-tech entrepreneurs. Five Riverview Elementary School students in Fresno have come up with an idea for an app to monitor water use. The state is in the grip of a record drought. The Fresno Bee reports the kids presented their idea to officials in March. Now, the Fresno Chamber of Commerce and businesses including AT&T are kicking in more than 50,000 bucks to develop the app. It will be free and should be available for download by the time school starts in the fall.
