That is one thing I have not noticed in my area in Vermont; also, the local stylist operates in a fancy 'salon' and charges NYC prices. If she had her employees all had fine looking heads of hair the prices might be somewhat justified, but alas, they look like they get the BoGo deal from the local sheep shearer.
I miss Lemon Tree...quick cut/trim less than $15. And you didn't have to wait till 10 am to get your hair cut like around here..place opened at 8 am.
I bring my son to school@7:30 and cannot do ANY errands until after 8/9/10 when I cannot be bothered to go out again. Nothing opens before 9 or 10 am apart from the supermarket.

This is interesting! Makes me think it's another one of those things that depends on where you live in Vermont.

My favorite Rutland salon (the owner of which is now a good friend) opens before 7 am. I LOVE how they do my hair. It costs a fraction of what my sister pays in Boston.

It never occurred to me that women with long hair wore it that way because they couldn't afford to have it cut. I wore mine long for many years and loved it that way. But I have so much giant curly hair that using the amount of product needed to look really good was driving me mad. So in November I had it cut at the aforementioned favorite salon and now all I can think is, what took me so long? It looks great and is so much easier. Of course, I sometimes miss having more hair than anyone else around but that's an ego thing I can live without. And I still have tons of hair.

I know a woman who lives in Connecticut. Her haircutter moved to Rutland.

She still makes periodic trips to Rutland to see this haircutter.

Do you know a haircutter who moved to Rutland from Connecticut within the last few years?

Oooh, I enjoy this kind of mystery! I'll cast about and see if I can learn the answer to this. (Meaning: Not offhand, but someone I know probably does. )

I checked out the Lemon Tree website and saw that they offer franchise possibilities which aren't limited to lower NYS. I wonder if it is something worth looking into for VT?

Maybe you should, BEE!
As for us, we're not going to be in VT for the long haul.

Vermont is laid back. Noone cars what clothing label you have on or what kind of car you drive.
Yes, we're just so much better than those big city folk, what with all their pointless worrying and all. Everyone pat themselves on the back. You're great, you're a Vermonter.
BTW, no one cares what kind of car you drive as long as it's a Subaru Outback, preferably with those 10 bumper stickers that they all seem to have.

Oh come on, its not that they don't care, its that whatever you own in Vermont turns to dirt so fast nobody can afford to keep anything nice. I mean, what woman wouldn't want to wear high heals if she could? They don't because they can't. Same with the cars. I'll tell you one fashion symbol that everyone wears though is their politics. Its not about having the right shoes, its about having 'dirty' shoes, or whatever because this says they are authentic progressive. Note, by progressive I really mean regressive. I used to get along with the locals until I was outed as a REPUBLICAN (OMG!!!) the locals aren't so friendly anymore even though I put on dirty cloths from goodwill to fit in when I go to the dinner for breakfast before skiing.
