Christine M Hannonabout this book: My book, "A Hairdresser's Diary," was written at the suggestion of my son in law. He felt that the stories I have been sharing verbally for years should be told. This is a book that has a huge market. It has no barrier to countries of origin races, status or sex.
Everyone in this world has used, knows, or is a hairdresser or beautician. My stories are not about how to do hair, but how to live your dreams in spite of your pain, hardships, abuse and discouragements.
The book took two year to write. The parts that involved my distressful childhood where so very hard to tell, and I found I had to leave out the most heartbreaking information.
"A Hairdresser's Diary" was the obvious title for a book that would tell the story of my fight to become a hairdresser. A childhood dream.
A Part of this story deals with my modeling career, so my husband thought it fitting I should have a picture of myself on the cover. (I had insisted that it have a picture of scissors, as they are a symbol of my trade.)
Painful memories stirred up from my childhood were the hardest part of my writing: my lost careers and the suffering of family members due to a thoughtless drunk driver.
The most valuable lesson I learned from writing is that I am able to help others who feel useless, unloved, berated and worthless—enabling them to strive for their dreams and find the strength or courage to take the first step.
Now that I am in my late sixties, I know that every experience in my life -- whether it was sad, unjust, tragic or delightful -- made me who I am to day. I am a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a mother in law, a sister, aunt, as well as being an artist, poet and an author. All of these wonderful things are the result of my years of experiences.
I am now writing a sequel to "A Hairdresser's Diary." Inside all of us there is a dream and you owe it to yourself and others to live that dream. The only words that should not be in your vocabulary are "I can't."
