My kid’s first haircut at Gene Juarez

Gene Juarez is really well known here in the Pacific Northwest. When I was in college, I splurged on a cut and full color and when people would ask where I had my hair done, I yelled, “GENE JUAREZ!” the way I do now whenever the cashier asks if it’ll be credit or debit. “OH IT’LL BE DEBIIIIIIIIT!” Then I do a dance because I had enough liquid funds to buy chewing gum and a Bud Light Mango-rita ....more
