I believe in angels
I believe in angels, personal angels assigned to each of us. Mostly we ignore them as we live out our day-to-day good lives, but I’ve noticed they really spring into action in times of crisis, responding to the subconscious cry for help.
One of my brightest and shiniest angels is Jan Bean, owner of the Cyber Salon and Day Spa in Glenwood Springs. The first time I visited them was because I heard they might have wigs to loan out for cancer patients; sure enough, they brought out two full bins and spent a long time helping me try them on to choose the most becoming, treating me all the time as an honored customer.
The second time was when I finally got sick of my hair falling out and went in to have it removed; Natalie, Jan’s charming assistant, encouraged me first to have a short cut rather than a complete shave – a good idea as I wasn’t quite ready to face a naked scalp. She gave me a very cute spiky 2-inch haircut and I emerged feeling great. While my original thick, long hair was cut, Kay took a moment from her customer to sweep the floor so that the remains of my locks wouldn’t upset me.
The third time the cute cut had degenerated into nasty thin patches and I was ready to go for the full monty, the ultimate shave, which Nick, another assistant, gave me gently and tenderly. Kay came over and pressed more gifts into my hands: a stand for the wig, spray for my scalp and a special shampoo and conditioner for wigs. All of this free of charge. What a huge gift, and delivered with armfuls of TLC.
Needless to say, the Cyber Salon and Day Spa at 1312 Grand Ave. in Glenwood Springs (945-2927) offers a full range of beauty services, and I highly recommend them. They will treat you as we all long to be treated, and you will emerge feeling and looking beautiful.
