Mique Burnett-Craig RIP 1944- 2010
Can't remember who introduced me to Mique but the first recollection I have is meeting at one of her hair shoppes on Huron St at First in Downtown Ann Arbor. Some beauty school teachers had used me in a big hair show at Hudson's Department Store. They absolutely FRIED my hair to bits. It made me sick how horrible my hair looked and felt. Of course I had NO photos taken during that time.
Someone sent me to meet Mique as she was the one hair dresser who could save my hair. Off to Mique's I went... Loved the energy in her shoppe. Back in the day we smoked and drank while getting our hair done! Loud rock music blasted out of her big speakers and it was a party getting your hair done.
After one of my appointments Mique invited me to one of her annual April Fool's Day parties.
at the Road House near Whitmore Lake. Sonic's Rendezvous Band used to play frequently. The Rockets used to play there too and lots of other bands from the area as well.
Scott Morgan says that Mique was an Ann Arbor institution and she and Scott had lots of friends in common. Mique was lots of fun and was very supportive of the rock n roll scene and the bands from our area. Scott and Maureen went out to see Mique recently and chatted about old times and the fun we all had back in the 70's
