Let me get this straight. John Vaillancourt invests 1.1 million into a business, retains all of its employees, teaches them his technique, and is vilified for being demanding and businesslike ("Hair Brawl," 11/29/02)? It seems worth noting that for all their bitching and moaning, none of his former employees bash his talent. Call me silly, but I would rather have a talented hard-ass cutting my hair than just your average "Joe."
