A Very Festive Yuletide Let It Ride

In Celebrate by El Rubio3 Comments

El Moreno and El Rubio Ending the year happy and festive

Both Holly AND Jolly

We did it, we made it through the year, and we capped it off with the return of Long Manes & Candy Canes. A week after pulling off the big party, and the last day we’d all be together this year, it was the perfect night for our annual Yuletide Let It Ride.

In a year that started with moving into a new warehouse and hasn’t slowed down since, we finally got a chance to sit amongst each other, let our hair down, take stock of everything that’s happened, and reminisce on some of the great moments.

Featuring all seven of our in-house headquarters staff, each man shared a highlight from the year, starting with an introduction to the newest member of The Longhairs staff team, Flowfillment Specialist Travis Nishiyama, now known as El Travieso.

It was a night to remember, filled with fraternization, flow, and festive holiday cheer. Don’t miss the 2022 Yuletide Let It Ride.
