Did you know that Ober Gallery in Kent is one of only two galleries in the US specializing in Russian art? Well, you do now. What did we know about Russian art before we walked into Ober Gallery?

His name is Bond, Scott Bond…and he’s a celebrity hairstylist, living in Litchfield County on occasion – when he’s not jetting off to style hair in NY, LA, or London.

We drove to Goshen and knocked on his door one cold winter day not long ago, (we were invited, honest) and asked him to use his Edward Scissorhands on our mops.

Watch Scott in action, and check out the end results – we’ll call this episode of Unlocking Litchfield – “Lora and Bev get fancy new dos.”
