My official favorite salon is Down at Lulu's, right on the Berkeley/Oakland border. Tina is a big, beautiful broad who is basically the coolest person in the world. She knows everything about bubblegum/garage/punk music and has glorious collections of vintage whatnots, but doesn't make you feel like you're any less cool for being a little bit square.
Tina and Seth, co-owners of the salon.
The pink exterior jazzes up an otherwise boring block of Telegraph.
Derek showed me this video when I visited Portland last summer; I was like, "Hey! Those people cut my hair!" I had no idea about the adorable band Hunx and His Punx.
Oh, and here's my hair!
