Barbara Fournier, a wife, mother, licensed cosmetologist, former owner of two salons, devoted writer and author, has completed her new book “After Our First Hello”: an entertaining and eye-opening expose into the life of a hair stylist. The author, Barbara Fournier, narrates her life and her experiences of being a cosmetologist for over 35 years.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Barbara Fournier’s expressive work acts as a self-help book with a twist of philosophy and common sense.

Fournier asks, “Would you tell your hairstylist over the telephone you’re going to kill yourself?”

She shares, “’After Our First Hello’ is my attempt to change the way hairstylist are perceived and possibly help the reader to think before you tell us your problems that I hurt when you do, and that common sense should always prevail. Your hairstylist is one of the most important people in your life even if you don’t have hair and yet, so often we are portrayed in a much different light. I do not recall ever seeing a television show or motion picture that actually made the hairdresser look intelligent. We are the people that make you look your best for that job interview or that special occasion. We keep your hairstyle as current as you would like us to, which makes you feel better about you. We listen to all the drama going on in your life whether we want to or not. We are the professionals you come to with the most unbelievable tales that anyone could imagine. We often find ourselves scratching our heads, thinking, why in the world would you leave these stories with us, in our hearts, and in our minds? All of this happens, ‘After Our First Hello’. Is After Our First Hello just my memoirs, a self-help read, a long-winded advice column, or just my take on common sense? Quite possibly it’s all the above, but I’ll let you, the reader, decide.”

Readers who wish to experience this enjoyable work can purchase “After Our First Hello” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
