Emergency haircut

  • 19th Apr, 2007 at 6:06 AM

I don't know if you know Lisa Smith, bassist for the spectacular Pony Up. But I do. When she's not travelling the world, playing in seedy bars, and living it up at SXSW, she cuts hair at Coupe Bizzarre. Which is how I bumped into her when I embarked on my search for a replacement hairdresser.

When madamewoo got an utterly disasterous (but free) haircut, I knew just the person who could fix her hair.

We both left as very happy customers.

that's strange...
i thought it was sarah who use to work at coupe bizarre because I remember getting my hair styled by her then a mutual friend of ours also told me she was part of pony up and that's why she wasn't available to work at coupe bizzare anymore....maybe i mixed up names...maybe sarah was indeed lisa but then I looked up ponny up bio and sarah does exist! and what i specifically remember about sarah was that she had a tattoo of a fairy on her arm, and after looking at their myspace photos, you can see sarah and a good clear shot of her tattoo, so therefore in conclusion! i did not imagine getting my hair cut by sarah at coupe bizarre and lisa and sarah both work at coupe bizarre!

yes i wanted 3 mins of my life and yours right now.

I guess Coupe Bizzarre is a pretty good place to work if you're going to rock out in a band. :)

So who have her the bad haircut in the first place???

A student who approached her in a café. She needed a model and was offering a free cut.

I guess she was pretty new at this.

Also hehe a little blast from the past - my old band The Cherry Persuasion used to share a jam space with them! And I'd always get mad when they used my keyboards LOL

Well, I guess I'd be a little miffed too, if they didn't ask.

It was kinda funny actually. We used to rehearse in the basement of the Ugava Mattress building on Pine. The walls were concrete block painted pink with green astroturf on the floor. I wonder if they still practice there - you should ask! Haha.
