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!!!

CALIFORNIA-THANKSGIVING HEAT

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Pity those poor folks in California, where they had to endure record heat while much of the nation shivered on Thanksgiving Day. Records were set in a number of California cities. It hit 85 at San Diego's Lindbergh Field, breaking a 111-year-old record. The National Weather Service says Los Angeles had a high of 86 -- one degree hotter than the 1977 record. Record highs were also hit in downtown Oakland, Santa Ana and in Riverside, where it reached 91.

COAT COLLECTION

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- It's "Buy Nothing Day" to some folks in Rhode Island. Instead of hitting the malls on this Black Friday, the Buy Nothing organizers are collecting winter coats for the needy. Event spokesman Greg Gerritt says they hope the Buy Nothing Winter Coat Exchange will get people thinking about the negative effects of consumerism. Coats are being collected at a number of locations in the Ocean State including churches and YMCA branches.

ZOO THANKSGIVING

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- How does a Thanksgiving feast of horse meat, crickets and lard sound? Well, it wasn't a holiday meal for people. The animals at the Kansas City Zoo got to enjoy plenty of fruit, veggies and raw meat, while we humans were stuffing ourselves with turkey and stuffing. The Kansas City Star reports elephants are partial to hay, the lions like raw horse meat.

VOLVO OCEAN RACE-TURKEY JERKY

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- "The turkey jerky was as good as it gets." So says skipper Charlie Enright, who's with a U.S. based sailing team plowing through the Indian Ocean. The crew got to celebrate Thanksgiving with some treats stashed aboard their boat. It was a surprise from the sailors' wives, girlfriends and shore crew. They had turkey jerky, pumpkin cookies and even cranberry sauce to spread on their normal freeze-dried fare. The sailors are competing in the round-the-world Volvo Ocean Race.
