Happy Father’s Day

Father’s Day is a relatively modern holiday to celebrate the contribution that your own father has made to your life.  Different families have a range of traditions.  Father figures can include fathers, step-fathers, fathers-in-law, grandfathers and great-grandfathers and even other male relatives.  Common Father’s Day gifts include sports items or clothing, electronic gadgets, outdoor cooking supplies and tools for household maintenance.  Why not stop and get him some product for his hair or a gift certificate for a haircut?  Come in this week and grab something for your father and let us know it’s for your dad and we will give you 20% off items for him—THIS WEEK ONLY!
