Going up for sale!

March 14th, 2009 (03:16 pm)

Serpentine Hair is going up for sale--there's too much going on right now to maintain it & 2 other businesses, and I've fallen behind much more than I'd like. Price is negotiable; I'm just asking for a 10% share of future profits in exchange for marketing and writing copy for the site. If you know anyone who's interested, please let me know!

current mood: working

To make a long and arduous story short, the shampoo bars for the Feb. LE's are going to be another week or two due to a move and some fried equipment as a result of faulty wiring at the old place. (We're back up and running now, and hopefully, we won't have to deal w/that weirdness again!) However, go ahead and feel free to order them in either liquid shampoo or solid perfume form in the meantime via our site; just type the names in, and we'll get 'em right out to ya! Thanks for your patience!

Serpentine Hair's February '09 Releases!

February 3rd, 2009 (10:19 am)

To celebrate the sexy theme of Valentine's Day, we here at Serpentine Hair will be bringing you the following scents this month:

Cora Pearl

One of the most famous courtesans ("Grandes Horizontales") of 19th century France, this English expat dazzled Parisian society with her charm and style as she entertained some of the Continent's most powerful men. Our tribute to this sexy lady of the demi-monde is a warm blend of neroli (a nod to the Duc L'Orange, one of Cora's favorite benefactors,) and rose--a classic symbol of passion and beauty. Like its namesake, this blend is a stylish twist on some old classics.

Lascivious

A gorgeous, heady floral blend of calla lilly, rose, and a slight cool undertone of bamboo, this is a seductive scent that captures the interest and imagination of all who behold it. Very sexy, very red, and very likely to inspire impure thoughts in the object of your desire, this is a great blend for the boudoir!


And for those who couldn't care less about that kind of thing, we'll be bringing you the following as well:

Warhol

A fresh, unisex scent of cucumber and bamboo, this scent embodies the cool, urban energy of one of the late 20th century's most famous artists. Fresh, stylish, and all-around fabulous, this is a tribute to the soul of the quintessential American artist--alive, original, and inexhaustably energetic. (Silver hair dye optional.)

Halve Maen

Originally a customized blend to commemorate the wedding of two die-hard New Yorkers, this blend is being released to the general public to commemorate the quadricentennial of Henry Hudson's journey up the mighty river (and major artery of the Empire State,) that now bears his name. Named after the vessel that brought Hudson and his crew to these shores, Halve Maen (or "Half Moon",) combines both tulip and peppermint fragrances in a nod to both the Dutch history of NY, as well as the area's crisp, cold winters.

Never buy inferior equipment!

December 28th, 2008 (08:48 am)

OK, so after taking a few days' breather over the holiday, I fired up my auxiliary Windows box yesterday in order to print product/shipping labels and ship out this weeks' orders. Problem was, said Windows box was purchased as a refurbished model from (what I found out after the fact) a place with a dismal BBB rating, albeit a decent one on Pricewatch, which is where I found the computer in the first place. (In order to print the labels correctly/use certain programs, Windows, rather than my preferred OS of Linux, is a must. Being that I like to keep my Linux and Windows strictly separated, this required an extra little laptop to hook up to the printer, etc.) This auxiliary Windows computer was always slow and somewhat problematic out of the box, and the godawful company I ordered it from refused to do anything about it. (Like taking it back, for instance.)

After 5 months of headaches, the obnoxiously defective little Windows box finally died on me yesterday morning, so after some exhaustive research @the BBB and elsewhere, I bought another inexpensive little Windows box from a company with a stellar reputation. Hopefully, the new computer will arrive this week. Lesson learned: Never buy inferior equipment, and always check the reputation of a prospective vendor before plunking your money down.

What does this mean to you, our lovely Serpentine Hair customers? Orders are going to be delayed by a few days this week while we borrow Windows equipment from friends and family in order to give you folks the professional appearance you've come to expect from our products. Orders placed on or after Dec. 20th until we get the new computer in will be offered a free 2-oz liquid shampoo in the scent of your choice as an apology for the lateness of these shipments. Thanks for bearing with us, and we hope you have a happy new year!
