Hold On to Your Hairpieces, Hairspray’s Nikki Blonsky Lands Job at Salon!

Nikki Blonsky totally gets that when times are tough, you  gotta do what you gotta do. We are in a recession after all, so how  recessionista fab is it that when the acting gigs stopped rolling in, she  (literally) stuck to her day job.

As you might recall, when we last checked in with the Hairspray star’s non-H’wood gigs, she was working at a high-end shoe store in NYC. Not anymore though. Nik is doing  the 9-to-5 thing at a shop much more suited to her par-tick skills.

So what is this starlet doing to pay the rent these days? This just in  according to her Twitter account:

Its true Im [email protected] Superstar Salon as a makeup artist & more Im proud 2  b workin & helpin pay bills BUT ill NEVER loose sight of my dreams,” she  tweeted last night.

Well  at least it’s Superstar Salon, right?!

If she’s going to be working part time like the rest of us average Joes and  Janes, at least it’s somewhere half way glam. Ya know, minus the floor  sweeping.

Oh well, she’s probably got some good John  Travolta gossip to chat about with the clientele, and we would give  an extra large tip to anyone who had some hilar Vicey stories about the  A-lister.

In fact, credit where credit’s due: Nikki may be one of the most realistic  (and respectable) actresses in the biz, ‘cause when times get tough at least  she’s not turning to some sleazy reality series or stripping down for cash.

Instead, she obtained her cosmetology license and got her hands a little  dirty—only to be manicured to perfection with her employee discount later on,  we’re sure.

Upside is she’s still auditioning. And who knows, maybe this will be the perfect training for Hairspray 2?
