It’s New to Us by Jean Stratton

COLOR & CUTS: "With an experienced hair cutter and an experienced colorist, we are a great team at Ma Coupe." Lakhdar "Ben" Benamara, owner of the new Ma Coupe Hair Design salon in Blawenburg, looks forward to sharing his cutting expertise with more clients.

Hair Cuts and Color Specialties Are Focus at Ma Coupe Hair Design

A good hair cut is more important than ever. With the desire for easy maintenance at an all-time high, the cut must stand on its own. Perms are less and less popular, and people want a more natural look.

"If it's a good cut, you don't have to do much in the way of maintenance. Maybe just blow dry, if necessary," says Lakhdar "Ben" Benamara. Owner of the brand new Ma Coupe Hair Design salon at 1143 518 N601 (the intersection of Routes 518 and 601) in Blawenburg, Ben has been cutting hair for many years. Originally from Algeria, he worked in and owned hair salons in Europe, and came to Princeton 37 years ago. He owned Princeton Hair Cutters and La Meche, as well as working for other salons in the area.

WORLDWIDE VILLAGE: "We have such a range of items: textiles from India, carved wood from Africa, gourds from Latin America, jewelry from Niger, musical instruments from Africa, and lots of things for kids." Members of the staff and volunteers at Ten Thousand Villages are shown by the "Hidden Meadow" collection, featuring a variety of products from India, Indonesia, The West Bank, Peru, Honduras, Vietnam, and Bangladesh. Left to right are: Sara Katz, manager Rowena Gross, Carl Esser, and Randy Harms.

Gifts, Home Decor, and Jewelry Offered at Ten Thousand Villages

It's all about connecting. Connecting and sharing with people across the world. Artisans who fashion quality items receive fair compensation for their work, and customers in North America are the beneficiaries of the craftspeople's skill and talent.

It is the concept behind the fair trade program, and it grows stronger all the time, says Rowena Gross, manager of Ten Thousand Villages retail shop and a fair trade organization.
