Hair salon ad is truly horrible.

(click ad, via Michigan, via reddit) Trudy gives killer haircuts. Well the salon is aptly-named. "Our salon is warm and friendly..." But our customers are cold and dead. On the plus side, that's a great price for a perm & cut. On the negative side, "Not valid on long hair." copyranter fact: my Mom is a (mostly) retired hairdresser.
Previously: a truly horrific hair salon sign.

Sadly many of our beloved senior customers have gone to BLUE RINSE HEAVEN to meet their natural white haired and bearded maker.

Totally fake. I am looking at it and there's something odd about that text block. Besides, I don't believe anyone would say something stupid like that, that is, remind its senior customers that they soon will die too.

Yes, the headline should have read, "Look your best when going to meet your maker."

It does LOOK fake. But if you think an America salon ad couldn't possibly say something like that, you haven't seen very many local ads.

No, I haven't seen that many local ads. Still, that doesn't change the fact that this is fake. Reddit is full of scam images. I'd have found this funny only if it was real.

Thanks, I'm aware of reddit's track record. But you don't know for sure it's fake, do you? And until Trudy herself writes me and Huffington Post and everybody else who posted this, I'M NOT PULLING IT, DAMMIT.

Go ahead anon, you seem so heavily invested in this: Call her and ask her if the ad is fake. Send me a recorded file of the conversation, and I'll update the post to say that the ad is a fake.

I just want you to be pleased.

I called that number and got the Ladies Luncheon Club. Wtf? I thought that was Trudy's Looking Glass Salon.

I think a more appropriate name for her salon would be Curl Up and Dye with Trudy.
