During my last appointment with Dairdre, a young man came in to inquire about a hair appointment. I noticed that he caught Dairdre’s attention and she began signing back and forth with this young man. It never occurred to me before how difficult it could be to make an appointment to get your hair done if you have a special need such as being hearing impaired. I’m already impressed with Dairdre, but she gave me a whole new level of respect for her professionalism and skills set.
After the gentleman went away, I asked her about her ability to sign. She said she learned it a while ago and that it has come in handy for hearing impaired clients who know they can go to a salon where someone can communicate with them. Dairdre also explained how difficult it is to use sign when describing hair treatments and styles because there are no specific words for things like highlight my hair.
So, if you’re hearing impaired or know someone who is and they live in the Columbus, OH area, send them over to Dairdre Scriven stylist at Vinyl Hair Salon, 962 S. Front St., Columbus, OH.
