About the Book

Pamela Parkhurst, a.k.a. Ginger Snap, reveals the most sordid details about her quirky life as a hairdresser and her relationships with hilarious clients. She has never told anyone about the bizarre things that happen in and out of the shop, until now.

In this collection of short stories, Ginger demonstrates her whacked out sense of humor as she tries to figure out how to deal with quirky hairdressers, nymphomaniac employees, and unpredictable clients.

On a typical day, she is confronted with a wife and a mistress finally meeting each other, while one of her hairdressers, Iona Sextoy, has an orgasm while working.

Then, at her annual Christmas party, one of her client's waist-length hair bursts into flames. Just as everything gets back to normal, another client, Gamma Ray, suggests that Ginger drink her own urine as a preventative health care solution.

If you have ever told your hairdresser a little secret or asked for advice, you have probably exchanged more information than you would with your closest friend. What have you told your stylist lately?

Author Pamela Parkhurst considers herself a hairapyst with over 30 years' experience of clients sitting in her confession chair. She owns Hawaiian Hairlines Salon in Kailua-Kona.
