The Speaker of the House is in the House
Local celebrities and sports figures are common visitors to Bonne Vie, but what’s a salon owner to do when the nation’s most powerful woman, politically speaking, wants to stop by for a ‘do’?
After passing a secret service background check with flying colors, Bonne Vie owner and lead stylist Emil opened up his shop on his day off to give Nancy Pelosi the royal treatment. ‘She was very gracious,’ remarks Emil after spending the afternoon with the Speaker. ‘Nancy wanted a Vidal Sassoon bob, the best in the world, and that’s our specialty.’
Pelosi’s secretary did her research well, choosing Bonne Vie for the Speaker, after reading about Emil’s training with Sassoon in Manhattan.
So how did Nancy like her haircut? ‘She left with a smile and stack of business cards’ notes Emil. ‘It went very well.’
Here’s to Bonne Vie becoming THE salon for Washington’s who’s who on holiday in Central Florida.
