London Calling Salon does quite a few HairBall™ shows through out the year in metro Detroit as well as out of state. "Ernie" is the do it all guy, since 1996, that coordinates the HairBall™ shows through logistics, model hunting, last minute repairs or "jerry rigging" on the spot as well as general repairs and maintenance in the salon. Ernie also produced, choreographed and stared in a HAIRBALL™ show and has been a past M.C.
The "Man of Action". Matt is the go to guy at HairBall® shows and our model "wrangler" extraordinaire. Without the models being on stage at the right time – the show falls behind. This is the HairBall® equivalent to the cowboy, in that he can move the MODELS where they need to be and keep them in line. Get along – little doggy!
