Need a good book to read for a rainy day?

Hair Peace written by Susan Veraldi, a thirty-five year veteran from deep within the trends and trenches of the hair industry, shares vignettes of everyday life from her urban hair salon, which is situated amidst the universities, hospitals and working class neighborhoods of Pittsburgh, PA. The stories open their arms to the well-seasoned business owner, fresh faces to the industry and to anyone who has ever wondered about life on the salon floor.

Susan’s clients provide her with historical, hysterical and often times tragic stories that lead her to search for meaning and her own inner peace. The book is available on

“…Delightful…and so RIGHT!..." —Beth Minardi, Owner of Minardi Salon in New York

“Fun… and inspirational…what a journey by this loving, loyal and balanced gal.” —Marty Landau, Owner of Dessange International Day Spa in Pittsburgh/Paris
