Bluffton University has named Denny Dorrel as its new head football coach. Dorrel has become the 13th head coach in Bluffton football history. He replaces Tyson Veidt, who resigned after six seasons to become the linebackers coach and recruiting coordinator at the University of Toledo. Dorrel comes to Bluffton from his alma mater, Hanover (Ind.) College. He has been the Panthers’ defensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator, as well as academic coordinator, for the last two years. He was previously an assistant head coach and defensive coordinator at both Marietta (Ohio) College, from 2008-2011, and Thomas More College in Crestview Hills, Ky., from 2004-07. He was also the linebackers coach at Thomas More.
The Curling Iron held its first ‘KISS’ of Color Night on Friday, April 11. The objective of the event was to give the attendees a ‘KISS’ (peek-a-boo or slight hints) of color...not an allover color. By doing a ‘KISS’ of color they can show that color can be minimal. It gives the client a lot of choices and the stylists a lot of creative freedom with the ability to showcase their versatile coloring skills. For example, those young clients that are wanting some wild and flashy colors but their parents say no, can just get a slight peek-a-boo strand that can be hidden. This ‘KISS’ of color can also stand out when they want it to. It’s a good compromise. The young client and their parents can both be happy.
