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!!!

WEIRD WEATHER

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- With much of the nation digging out from snowstorms -- you might figure Anchorage, Alaska, must be buried. But folks in Alaska's biggest city are asking where's the snow? As a large swath of the Lower 48 shivers, Anchorage is unseasonably warm. The little snow that has fallen has already melted. Not so in western New York, where Buffalo is being buried. There's so much snow on the ground, the NFL has decided to move the Bills' home game against the Jets. The game had been scheduled for Sunday in the Buffalo area, but will be played Monday night in Detroit. The Lions are at New England Sunday.

UNCLAIMED LOTTERY PRIZE

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- A lucky $1 million Powerball winner could soon turn very unlucky. Virginia Lottery officials say the clock is ticking on a winning ticket sold for the June 21 drawing. The ticket hasn't been turned in yet. It will expire at the close of business on Dec. 18 if the jackpot isn't claimed. Virginia Lottery officials note winning tickets are only good for 180 days after the drawing.

CENTENARIAN-FIRST OCEAN VISIT

ORANGE BEACH, Ala. (AP) -- Ruby Holt has seen a lot in her more than 100 years. But one thing she never saw was the ocean -- at least not until this month. Holt got a chance to go to the beach, visiting the Gulf coast in Alabama. The trip was made possible by Brookdale Senior Living Solutions, where Holt lives in Columbia, Tennessee, and the Wish of a Lifetime organization. Holt says she had always heard about how wonderful the ocean is and wanted to see for herself. She got a chance to walk across the white sand with a little help and dip her feet into the cool Gulf waters. Holt turns 101 Dec. 13.

GIANT NUTCRACKER

ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) -- It's nuts! A giant nutcracker will be the centerpiece of the annual holiday festival near Roseburg, Ore. Toby Johnson created the monster cracker using a chain saw. It will stand more than 40 feet tall and the nut-crushing power comes from a motor. Cranes are being used to assemble the nutcracker at the site of the festival, which opens Sunday. Sponsors tell The News-Review they're sending documentation to the Guinness people to earn a world's record for the biggest nutcracker.
