SB Wednesday, March 10, 2010 Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Shear Pleasure owner creates beauty inside and out B U S I N E S S Nanci began working what what keeps Nanci here. reservoir of energy and SHEAR PLEASURE Tiffiney Lozano Staff Writer Nanci Luce of Quincy's Shear Pleasure has been in the beauty business most of her life. Her first client: sister Bar- bara with a head full of hair so long she could sit on it. Tired of morn rag-curling her tresses at night, Barbara turned to 5-year-old Nanci for help. Nanci got the scissors and skillfully rid her sister's head of the unwanted locks; right to the scalp in a few places. Her sister's new pixie cut earned Nanci a beating she didn't soon forgot, but destiny had already rung. Years later, Nanci began her college career in Hunting- ton Beach taking physical she called "platform" with Orr Enterprises and Daniel Floreat, which afforded her access to the top beauty shows in LA, where she did hair backstage. The blossoming stylist fell in love with the fast-paced fashion environment and quickly earned herseff a reputation in the industry. Her skills won her a spot at the annual World Hair Show in Paris on three different occasions. Nanci worked in Hunting- ton Beach for three years, but after becoming a mother, the crazy pace of Southern Cali- fornia lost its charm. Lured with the promise of green-forested mountains and a chance to waterski, Nanci brought her three daughters to visit a distant relative in the summer of 1979. "The first time I came to Quincy, it was like coming home," she said. She's been Obviously a person con- cerned with beauty both in- side and out, the Shear Plea- sure owner has been an active member of the community since she began calling this her home nearly 30 years ago. "It's not just what you do in here, she explained, "But what you do out there." Her latest project is the beautification of Quincy's east side. A Quincy chamber member off and on since 1980, Nanci is a key player in the proposed Arbor Bike Trail, which will run from the fair- grounds to Mill Creek Road. The stylist would like to see Quincy's architecture on both sides of Cemetery Hill more unified. She envisions a downtown that doesn't stop in the middle but rather runs the entire length of Quincy-- abolishing the east and west of our small town. Nanci did hair and make-up for the Sweetheart of the volunteered with the Peace Corps for a two-and-a-half- year stint. With then husband Bran- don Reynolds, Nanci worked in the Ukraine contributing to a much-needed business edu- cation system for the former Soviet country. Shear Pleasure is at 2266 E. Main St. in Quincy. Nanci of- fers a full-service salon for men and women: haircuts, color, permanents, waxing, facials, manicures, pedicures and massage by Amber Hughes.

Two buses, actually. This may sound like I've started taking public trans- portation, but that's not the case. I drive to Quincy Mon- day morning with bins in my car that are headed for Chester and Portola. I drop off the Chester bins in front of SavMor by 8:10, then dash across the street to catch the 8:13 to Portola in front of the Stone House and load bins on- to that bus. These bins are filled with books, DVDs, music CDs and books on CD that were re- quested by library users in Portola and Chester. When the buses arrive at their desti- nations, branch staff unload the bins, then hand up bins headed for Quincy. The dri- vers call the Quincy library when they're a few minutes away, and I dash out with a hand truck to off-load the de- livery. Think of it as the Wells Far- go wagon. If it weren't for Plumas Transit, we wouldn't have a dependable way of getting books to and from our outly- ing branches. Our online cata- log, plumaslibrary,org, is very handy for telling us what items we own, but all too frequently the item of interest is not where the interested party is standing. Borrowers can place free online holds, which has in- creased our business. We don't charge to bring the item from one branch to another, because we don't want to dis- courage borrowers from re- questing and checking out li- brary materials. For years, we relied on the North State Cooperative Li- brary System to provide deliv- ery to all our branches. A van drove up the Canyon from Willows, and stopped in Quin- cy and Portola, then turned around and drove all the way to Chester, down to Greenville, and stopped again in Quincy before driving back down the Canyon. Not only did the van rotate Plumas County Library books, it also brought items requested from outside our li- brary system, again at no charge to the borrower. For a short period, we were receiving two deliveries a week, which allowed us to fill requests more quickly, even if the desired book was coming from Humboldt or Siskiyou county. Due to the price of gas and insurance, and state cuts to li- brary funding, the North State van was forced to re- duce deliveries to one day a week last July, and now is limiting service to Quincy and Greenville only. With no budget to pay for a van or a driver, Plumas Coun- ty Library is extremely fortu- nate to have Plumas Transit come to our rescue. Next time you receive a call that a book you requested is waiting for you at the library, consider that it probably ar- rived via Plumas County's own "Wells Fargo wagon."
