Mobile Hairdresser Recommendation?

Jul. 21st, 2011 | 12:37 pm
posted by: drunken_hedghog in brummies

Can anyone recommend a mobile hairdresser who works in south Birmingham? My locks desperately need attention, but a moped accident means I can't leave the house.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Piercings

Any recommendations for piercing studios in Birmingham?  It's for a navel piercing.

I've asked around my friends.  A few of them recommend Dolly Rockers in the Oasis.  One's had a tattoo nearby, but no piercings, and the other had her nose done.  The one person I know who had her navel done there found that it broke open a little while afterwards, and I know a few other people are wary of it, for other reasons.

My sister had hers done at that little place in the indoor market, but they no longer do body piercing.:(

Any suggestions?

Moving

Worked well for me last time, so I'm just checking if anyone in this comm is looking for a flat/housemate or knows of someone who is.

I know about all the standard listing sites, but just in case, I'm 23, professional,  non-smoker, woman, interested in local pubs, politics, good/bad tv, nice restaurants. Don't want to live with anyone who's uncomfortable with gayness, and am allergic to cats. Would like to share cooking on occasion, if that interests you. Short term/flexible tenancy is preferable.

I'd like to live in Harborne/Moseley/Kings Heath, and maybe Selly Oak.

National Express

Just wondering if anyone's been on one of the free buses that National Express now put on from Birmingham City Centre to the coach station - or vice versa.

I'm getting a coach soon and have got this 'free voucher' that you get when you book a National Express coach now... but not sure exactly where the buses go from in the city centre and how often they run. Don't want to be standing somewhere waiting when I could have been walking down there. Anyone know? It says it's the 'Free Service 37' - if that means anything to anyone.

Gas fitter recommendation

I'd like to sing the praises of Ross and Sean at the Hot Shop, in Sutton Coldfield. We just had our boiler and gas pipes replaced, which is the kind of thing that makes me rock gently in the corner and try not to think about people IN MY TERRITORY and TOUCHING MY STUFF. They worked extremely hard and disrupted as little as possible - we'd turn around and one of them would've done some major job sneaky like a ninja. The whole business was a lot less traumatic than we expected, even when they found a gas leak (which British Gas MISSED completely). Gas leaks are the kind of thing that makes think "oh god we're all going to die everybody evacuate", but they were just totally matter-of-fact and got on with fixing it.

Also, two days was more like one-and-a-half days, and they cleaned up after themselves. Full marks.

Hello

Does anyone know of any film-making groups or societies in Birmingham? Tried to find some on Google and Facebook but couldn't really see much. OR any voluntary work at film/TV studios in the West Midlands!

Thanks in advance :o)

Short notice, I know

Anyone know of anywhere to spend New Years Eve that is disabled friendly and not ridiculously busy? The folks are over from Cyprus and we've been so busy with Christmas that we've got nothing else planned. Thanks for any help!
