Get Ready for Prom!
The senior prom is an American tradition named after Prometheus, the traitorous Titan who gifted humanity with fire and currently spends eternity having his liver repeatedly eaten by an eagle. The first proms had little resemblance to the magical, once-in-a-lifetime dance-a-thons of today, as they were held in Dust Bowl towns and involved high-school seniors throwing rocks at clouds to produce rain. Much like the mythical Prometheus, the successful “Prom Kings” who made it rain were believed to be magic and were often chased out of town.
Gradually, this tradition gave way to our modern prom in which teenagers pretend to be married and have photos taken of themselves. Not surprisingly, more than 70% of prom dates end up becoming married before the night is over, either by wayward ship captains or through liberal common-law statutes that automatically marry any two people who have maintained eye contact for more than four seconds. In the past few decades, most Prom Kings have become mayors and most Prom Queens have married mayors.

VanStrand Hair Salon
Owners Tracy Kuss and Christy Strand-Kolb share a passion for hairstyling, and they channeled that excitement into opening VanStrand Hair Salon in 2001. Their mission was to create a salon that provided high-quality haircuts, perms, and waxing treatments at reasonable prices. Creating a friendly place to visit and socialize was equally important to them, and today the two love how their salon gives them an opportunity to meet new people and establish relationships with return clients. To keep the vibe upbeat and fun, Tracy and Christy surround themselves with a team of equally passionate, talented, and amicable hair sculptors. Pairing their skills with top-shelf products such as American Crew and Phyto Organics, the stylists stick to their high standards and leave their customers with ‘dos as stylish and sleek as a Ferrari dressed in Versace.
