A barber Artemio Gutierrez had a hangover and his hands were shaking. So when he was cutting the municipal president hair, he accidentally cut his ear. Artemio thanks Saint John Bosco for he was forgiven and wasn’t thrown in jail.

I was thinking about my boyfriend and lost the sense of time while dying the client’s hair. When I saw what I’m doing, the lady’s hair were already green. I was scared she would yell at me, so I prayed the Lord of Chalma. He heard me, and the lady believed me when I told her that it was a last fashion trend. She was so happy, she even tipped me.

I was thinking about my fiancé and lost the sense of time while perming the client’s hair. I tried to wet and dry the hair, but they still sticked out like a clown wig. I was scared I’d be fired and started to pray to the Virgin of Juquila. But it happened so that the lady liked a lot her new hairstyle. She even thanked me. I give thanks to the Virgin.

Since my daughter was left by her boyfriend who went to a hairdresser, she really lost her mind. I felt pity for her seeing her all disheveled—because of the hairdresser she hated the combs. But thanks to my prayers to the Virgin of Zapopan my daughter began to come to her mind. Now she is alright.

This retablo, I dedicate it to Saint Benedict of Palermo for I have found a stylist who made my haircut exactly as I wanted, after I showed him a photo of my favorite actor—Leonardo di Caprio.

Saint Sebastian, I offer you these flowers because you sent me Javier. He understood me when I was very sad. He gave me the satisfaction of succeeding with my beauty salon with his support and companionship.

I thank Saint Jude Thaddeus with this retablo because he didn’t leave me when I so needed him. I was going to close my shop, because of lack of clients. But one day a deputy came to my shop and asked for a haircut. He was so pleased with it that he recommended me to his family and the friend from high society. And my life changed.
