Best Salon to Make You Feel Hip, Even if You Aren't Los Angeles 2011 


You could call Hairroin "edgy," but that wouldn't do it justice, considering that after you get your cut they'll give you favors like car air fresheners featuring skeletons in pretty updos, or pens that look exactly like syringes. (Seriously. Folks do a double take when we pull ours out at the grocery store.) But even with a heavily pierced, tatted-up staff — and a chic owner who almost won Shear Genius (you know, that Bravo show) — Hairroin doesn't feel too cool for school. In fact, it'll work for little ol' unhip you. Trust us, you'll feel right at home sipping Champagne and chatting with your sweetly smiling stylist who — check her bio — recently sexed up the manes of reality-show women trying out for the Pussycat Dolls. The best part is that once your do's been done, you'll be filled with confidence, so much so that you might even strut right into one of the many tattoo parlors that dot the area. 1553 N. Cahuenga Blvd., Hlywd.; (323) 467-0392, hairroinsalon.com.

  • Air Guitar Championship Semifinals @ The Troubadour
    The Southwest Semifinals of the US Air Guitar Championship were held last Saturday at the historic Troubadour Club in West Hollywood. The event determined who would compete as regional representatives at the 2014 National Finals in Kansas City on August 9th. The colorful contestants (many of whom opted for elaborate codpieces) were judged by comedians Kristen Schaal and the Sklar Brothers. The top score was awarded to crowd-surfing guitarist Kingslayer, the mother of a teenage son who also competed wearing little more than an American flag bathing suit. All photos by Gustavo Turner.
