“I’m coming over there to give you a lecturing that you’ll never forget!”, screamed Mrs. Crumplebottom as the telephone slammed down. Shaking her head, Jhett placed the receiver back into the cradle and returned to her customer. She couldn’t figure out WHY Mrs. Crumplebottom was so upset. She had heard from other business owners that she was eccentric, but to be downright nasty? All she did was answer her phone. She didn’t think answering her phone by saying “Good Morning! Curl Up and Dye!” was so terrible. After all, that is the name of the salon. Putting it out of her mind, Jhett turned back to Dina Caliente and proceeded to give the town tramp the makeover that she deserved.

This is my very first salon that I have created. It sits on a 20x30 community lot and is priced at $105,028. I hope you enjoy it as much as I had in making it.

I love this! The outside is really attractive, and the inside is wonderfully laid out. I especially like that you didn't use any CC. Great job!

Thanks! I am really glad that you like it.

Hmmm.. I wonder if it existed prior to The Blues Brothers? That is the name of the salon Carrie Fisher works at in the movie.

Nice lot by the way. Love the windows.

Thanks everybody. I remember a friend of mine, years ago telling me about a salon that was in upper Michigan called Curl Up and Dye. I thought it was hilarious and the name always stuck with me.

Clashfan, the windows are really nice and I use them a lot for wall-windows.

There is a salon in my town, also called Curl Up And Dye! :D

We're sorta like 7-11; we're not always doing business, but we're always open.

Curl Up and Dye seems to be it's own Trope now.

No one thus far has mentioned the Blues Brothers.

Very nice, by the way.
