Wont somebody please think of the hair?
A far-north Canadian town where temperatures can hit 40 or 50 below zero for a week or two at a time is in desperate need of a hairdresser.
Its been a long struggle for us, Nicky Richards, the economic development officer of Norman Wells, told The Guardian. We just dont have anyone. Its something that people down south dont even ever think about because they dont have to worry about it.
People get by in the Northwest Territories town of around 800 just south of the Arctic Circle — by having family members cut their hair or by cutting it themselves.
Past hairdressers have come and gone from the town, using a workspace in a local inn that is outfitted with chairs, mirrors and a sink. Its currently available for lease, and potential clients number in the thousands, The Guardian reports.
Richards said the town has heard from a few interested people, but living in Norman wells has its challenges.
Sometimes we will have a good 40 or 50 below spell for a week or two at a time. So youre either going to love it or hate it, I suppose, she said.
