When we were in Michigan earlier this week, I saw the best hair salon name ever: Hairacy!
What is it about hair salons that they just love the pun-y names? I’ve seen more than I can remember (by which I mean of course that I can’t think of them now, when I would need to). I remember a Hairaphernalia which I believe was in West Virginia. And of course, there is Curl Up & Dye from Blues Brothers.
But I think Hairacy! is my all time favorite. It not only is a terrible, groan inducing pun, but it also manages to belittle the idea of heresy at the same time. Heresy is a charge that could get a man killed in some parts of the world. Then again, I suppose hairacy could also get a man killed in some barber shops.
“I gotta tell you Joe, I think I like this guy’s haircut better than yours.”
::Joe slams his fist down on the table:: “Hairacy!”
The fact that they put that exclamation mark there as part of their name sort of confirms that “hairacy!” is a term that must be shouted.
So here’s to you terribly named hair salons. You’re going to have to work pretty hard to take back the top spot. (Hairaphernalia declares this statement hairacy)
