Hair Stylist Tells All About Fort Worth Salon

Tuesday Nov 27, 2012

FORT WORTH, Texas - In "Hairspray, High Heels, and Second Hand Smoke" (ISBN 1478195630), experienced cosmetologist Frank Meyner shares his stories from behind the chair. Meyner's memoir offers readers an interesting look at the career of a hairdresser and the start of one of America's biggest high-end retailers, Neiman Marcus.

With his cutting shears in his hand, Meyner moved from his tiny West Texas town to Fort Worth, completely unaware of what lay ahead for him in the big city. At 20-years-old, he started at Neiman Marcus, working as the assistant to well-known stylist Phillip Trotter. From there, he entered the high-society world of Fort Worth.

In "Hairspray, High Heels, and Second Hand Smoke," Meyner details how he opened his own salon, which is still open nearly three decades later. He shares the stories of his customers and colleagues in a tribute to thank them for the love and generosity they have shown him over the years.

"Hair Spray, High Heels, and Second Hand Smoke" shares the journey of a small-town boy to his opening one of Fort Worth’s leading salons.

"Sometimes we need an escape from our everyday lives to a world that is filled with good-hearted, genuine and generous people that have made a difference," says Meyner. "This world still exists in Fort Worth."

Meyner hopes "Hairspray, High Heels, and Second Hand Smoke" reminds readers about the goodness of mankind that seems to be forgotten in the hustle and bustle of daily life.

"Hairspray, High Heels, and Second Hand Smoke" is available for sale online at and other channels.

A cosmetologist for the past 37 years, Frank Meyner earned his certification at the Glen and Lottie's Pivot Point School of Cosmetology. He has owned his own salon, Frank Meyner's Mane Event, for 28 years in Fort Worth, where he lives.

    Just went to AMAZON (thanks for the one-click link!) and ordered the book. It’ll get here in two days and I plan to read and enjoy it all day Sunday. Since I live in Dallas, I might even bump into a few familiar names in it...
