Alexandria’s Glynn Jones Salon held a celebration last week in honor of a longtime client who just celebrated her 100th birthday.
The client, Erda Matheson, began going to the salon 30 years ago for a color and cut. According to staff member Paola Vasquez, Matheson did not miss an appointment unless it was due to an illness.
Matheson’s celebration included balloons, decorations, a Boston cream cake, a sash and crown. After finishing her routine color and cut, staff sat her on a “queen’s throne” while everyone in the salon gathered around to sing happy birthday. The celebration concluded with Matheson receiving a bouquet of pink roses on behalf of Glynn Jones Salon.
“For the past few years we had been counting down the years, then months, then weeks, and then days until we got to celebrate her birthday,” Vasquez told the Times. “ … Her face was priceless when she arrived and saw all the decorations.”
