THIS SPACE IS THE BOM! by local blogger "christiemoments"

From truck depot to pet store to paint shop to trendy, hip, sleek salon …. to what?

Little was I to know that history would be made when I changed my hair appointment at Applebom Hair Salon from the early hours of 8:15am Saturday 21 June to 12 midday. Half way through the counselling & artistic expression session known to most as a hair appointment, I was told, you are the last client ever to be chopped at this Salon.

As boxes of hair products, trendy pics & positive signs of transformation & beauty were being packaged away I was forced to reflect on the time we have shared.

From truck depot to pet store to paint shop to trendy, hip, sleek salon …. to what?

Little was I to know that history would be made when I changed my hair appointment at Applebom Hair Salon from the early hours of 8:15am Saturday 21 June to 12 midday. Half way through the counselling & artistic expression session known to most as a hair appointment, I was told, you are the last client ever to be chopped at this Salon.

As boxes of hair products, trendy pics & positive signs of transformation & beauty were being packaged away I was forced to reflect on the time we have shared.

Two years ago almost to the day I saw an ad in “The Chronicle Guide” offering cut, colour, blow dry and brow wax for a pretty good price & that’s where my relationship with Amanda & Applebom Hairdresser began.. We have discussed our lives, our dreams, our relationships that come & go & Amanda even styled my hair for my Samsung Global Blogging experience for the 2012 London Olympics in this very space.

Never fear, my relationship with Amanda & the beautiful team at Applebom hair salon will continue in their new space. Always trend setters, these ladies are moving to a house with all of the cosy & intimate experiences that come with it.

Whilst I love the new space for Applebom, my mind ticks over as to the potential for this hipster, warehouse space that I see before me. Once a truck depot, then pet shop to paint store to hip, trendy, hair salon to ????

I can see it now (at least I hope) this space filled with groovy, interesting, intelligent, cultured adults looking for an alternative space to meet up! How cool would this place be as a bar, but not any sort of bar but an experience with events & bands & art & a positive vibe filled with eclectic 30 pluses with a little something to suit all interests.

Toowoomba is growing and infrastructure is developing with easier access in & out of the place but what will keep ambitious, single 30+ people here? We need a space, we need a place, we need a culture, who is going to put their hand up to develop the lifestyle of Toowoomba, starting with this space – in the heart of it all?!
