Hire again? Yes
Approximate cost: $110
Description of work: "They highlighted, shampooed, cut and styled my hair."
By day, Sells says she works as a pharmacokineticist analyzing how drugs are taken into and move through the body for Eli Lilly, and by night, she sings lead vocals for LemonWheel, a local band that covers everything from Gloria Gaynor to AC/DC. Visit the band's website at lemonwheel.com.
Comments: "Great! This was my first visit to Veronica. I was surprised when I called to see if she had an opening to hear her husband, [X103's radio personality] Don Stuck, answer the phone — how sweet! She took me as a last minute appointment. It was a long drive from Fishers [Ind.] to New Palestine [Ind.], but I think I've found myself a new hairdresser!
"Veronica is great — she's very friendly and she can do any style you want. I told her I needed to have the equivalent of a 'mullet' — business by day for my professional job and rock star by night since I sing in a band. She gave me the perfect hairdo — just wild enough for the stage, but not too wild for the business world. She did a great job!"
"We get a lot of people from local bands out here, and we get a lot of requests for styles that are acceptable for day jobs," says stylist Veronica Stuck. "But the job market does seem like it's getting a lot more lenient about guys with longer hair or women having hair with different colored streaks."
