Hair Peace Salon anecdote

Today we translated a bit from a rare interview for one of Belarusian music portals XLAM from our archive. This tidbit is about the Hair Peace Salon band name and we find it extremely F_U_N! 😜


The name came up by my friend Vadim. He had been writing songs in English. He has had his own band playing it alone constantly forcing me to listen to its songs, to read texts. I have hooked the title of one of his song called “Hair Peace Salon”. He had taken it from some American film, it was a sign on a house. He has not even seen this film, he was just passing a TV and saw on the screen the episode with a sign. I was once investigating the name, there were not any of such bands, there was just a hairdresser in Denver, Colorado, apparently that one form the movie. Then another appearance of this writing was on a wall in the documentary about John Lennon and Yoko Ono “Hair Peace”. By the way, the name is so complex for perception and pronunciation for our people. 😉

We were being called “Happy Slon” [Happy Elephant], “Hi-Fi Salon”, “Volosaty Pes Shalun” [Hairy Dog Varmint], “Hey Pishut’ Salaam” [Let’s Write Salaam].

We have been asked, “How is your band called?” – “Hair Peace Salon.” – “How, how?” – “Her.Pis.Salon.” – “Ahh, yes, now that is clear!” 🙂
