Let­ting her hair down for 100th birth­day

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

A SOUTH Perth res­i­dent cel­e­brated her 100th birth­day in style when her hair­dress­ing sa­lon sur­prised her with a morn­ing tea last week.

Ev­ery Tues­day for the past 13 years, Gwen Prince has gone to Michelan­gelo Hair Sa­lon for her weekly hair ap­point­ment.

Sa­lon re­cep­tion­ist Nola Fork­nall said the team had been ex­cited to sur­prise Ms Prince with her well-de­served 100th birth­day cel­e­bra­tion.

“She didn’t know any­thing about it; it was so lovely, all of us were re­ally on a high,” Ms Fork­nall said.

“She comes ev­ery week by go­pher and she’s just amaz­ing; her mind is as sharp as a tack.”

Ms Price was at the sa­lon with her daugh­ters, who also had a sur­prise up their sleeves.

“It just so hap­pened that her letters from the Queen and Prime Min­is­ter hadn’t ar­rived in time for the fam­ily cel­e­bra­tion last week,” Ms Fork­nall said.
