Introducing Jamie Chavarria, Hairdresser/Miracle Worker!

I would just like to say I've proofed a bunch of the choices for my author photo.

And my hair looks great in all of them.

My smile doesn't. My eyes don't. My eyebrows especially don't. (This is no fault of the photographer; I'm not particularly photogenic. At least my children are. To her credit, the photograher got several terrific shots.)

However, my hair looks seriously good in every single shot.

Thank you, Jamie!!

And to celebrate the author fact, to celebrate that I even need an author photo, Jamie is offering the following to new customers:

A free cut with paid-for highlights or $10 off a cut + style.

Just mention this blog when you talk to Jamie. You might even mention the title of my book :) : I So Don't Do Mysteries. It's a humorous mystery about a typical thirteen-year old named Sherry (short for Sherlock). She wants more mall time, less homework and a certain eighth-grade boy. Instead, she's recruited by her mother's ghost to prevent a rhino heist at San Diego's Wild Animal Park. Random House is publishing it Dec. 2008 and then publishing the sequel Dec. 2009.

And here's how to get in touch:
Jamie Chavarria @ C'est La Vie Hair Salon and Day Spa
9830 Prospect Avenue, Suite C, Santee, CA

By the way, if I ever get on Oprah...

I'm taking Jamie. I'm not saying Oprah doesn't have a decent hairdresser on the set. I'm not saying Oprah doesn't look good. I'm just saying she could look better. If she had Jamie.

Wow - I've been looking for a good hairdresser too - Does Jamie make housecalls? I get lost East of I-15 :-)

Congrats on your photo. You'll be a celebrity soon.

Hi Sandy! You could always come to my house for tea, then follow me to Jamie's. :)

You can tell Jamie that the next time I am in CA I will be going in for a makeover. Even if it is a year from now. My hair needs help. To bad she is half way across the US :) Glad she did good for your pics I can't wait to see them.

-Your psychic niece

Hi Psychic Niece! You'll love Jamie. And just think how beautiful you'll look for your whole visit here!

Wow Jamie sounds fantastic! Ok next time my highlights need to be done, I am going to Jamie's. So when do we get to see the proofs?

Barrie said...

Hi Sara! Perhaps I could bring Jamie to San Fran next summer?!! We would all look good!

Barrie said...

Hi Joe B.!! You? Highlights? It might just work!!

I think I'll put up proofs once I've narrowed it down to three!

Thanks for visiting the blog!

Isn't it great to find a great hairdresser - I'm still bitter about the horrible man who got scissor happy with my hair a few weeks ago!

Can't wait to see your author pics!


Barrie said...

Hi Sally! Sorry to hear about the scissor-happy man. Yes, a great hairdresser is a treasure! I'll let you know about the author pics. :)

Alyssa Goodnight said...

The book sounds great--perfect for my niece (but I'll probably read it first).

And yay for a good haircut/style! Look forward to seeing the pictures...

Sara Hantz said...

Good idea, Barrie!!!

Barrie said...

Alyssa, thanks for visiting!

Barrie said...

Sara--we might have to pay Jamie's way, but it'd be oh so worth it!! Ha! We'd be the babes of RWA! :) And who else could we drag along? A makeup artist? A chauffeur? Someone to choose our clothes and dress us? The list is endless.... :)
