Stars on the ceiling

June 1, 2007

The Hair Loft is such a compelling place that I had to check it out again. I haven’t ever seen selected newspapers put in plastic baggies and stapled to the ceiling. I suppose it is a space-efficient way to commemorate important events and personages, but not exactly archival or nice on the neck. Some of them are well-seasoned, from the 1980’s, or even the 70’s. They seem to touch mainly on political affairs, great moments in sports, and tragic female celebrities – it all sounds about right for a Wendover salon. I leave you here with the list of headlines:

Olympian ‘Flo-Jo’ Dead at 38

Why She Turned… What He Can Do (A Time Magazine Special Report on the Lewinsky/Clinton affair)

In Memory of Ripken’s Streak: So Long (After 16 years, 1,632 games, Orioles star decides time is right to take a seat)

Oh Boy! (For Diana’s 7 pound 1 1/2 ounce prince, the palace plans a future fit for a king)
