This is a humorous, heartwarming set of short stories/essays about the experiences of a professional hairstylist who has worked in several areas of the country. Anyone who has been to a hair salon or barbershop will find this book rewarding. The author is obviously a caring, sensitive person with an oddball sense or humor, and reading her stories makes you want to become her friend and enjoy her company on a more personal level. I would recommend this book for anyone looking for a lighthearted, enjoyable read.

Hair Raising Stories is a truely enjoyable little book. As someone who has worked with the public for many years I could easily connect with many of stories Ms. Breton wrote about people passing through her life via her job as a hair dresser. I myself have always felt like what I call a "freak magnet". While that does not sound very politically correct, I am basically saying that no matter where I am, complete strangers want to suddenly start telling me their life stories out of the blue. Maybe of these people seem to be the oddest of the odd. And from reading this book, you can see that the author deals with the same type of situation. This collection of short stories about different people she has met in her life made me giggle out loud at times and then tugged at my heart strings other times. Especially the one about her Dad. My only problem with it.....is that it ended. It was such a quick little read and I was immediately hooked. I wanted more. I really hope that the author sits down to write a second volume of these stories or at least a revised edition with the current stories extended. There is a real gem in here. With a bit more polishing, in the form of a sequel or extended version, this little gem will sparkle quite brightly!

Hair Raising Stories is a great coffee table book that anyone can enjoy. If you are in the business of working with people, no matter the profession, you can relate to the whacky things people do. You'll get a chuckle out of this book.
