German born Frankie is well known and loved around town. Soft and gentle he brings a touch of exotic to our Shire. With a heart of gold and generosity of spirit, having your haircut with him is an extra ordinary experience as quite often is the case in downtown Mullum.
Frankie is known to hold great parties, down the quaint lane outside his shop he has his record system set up and usually there is a quirky theme. One of his parties is a stand out memory for me, it was quite possibly the party highlight to date. (Rivalled with the footbridge cocktail party, my yearly highlight!) The energy was high, people were light and hearts wide open. It was like a joyous celebration with the chosen family. Any opportunity to celebrate and connect. We do this so well here, what's not to celebrate, when you live in glorious paradise?
Frank's dad was trained by Vidal Sasoon and there is a framed pick of him centre stage on the salon wall. Its not just about cutting hair, for Frankie it is how people feel when they walk out. Frank is like an old friend who you feel really cares and really takes the time to listen. When Frank is in the salon with Coco, his scissor sister the energy is vibrant and electrifying. Coco is another beautiful being in our town, whose story I look forward to sharing. If I am in town having a juice or picking up some dinner, just seeing Frankies face gives me a strong sense of belonging and community. We are one big tribe, all in this together.
