  • Why Men Should Know Salons Are NOT For Women Only

    There seems to be some stigma associated with men attending salons; so I'm here to tell you it is totally acceptable for men to go to a salon to get their hair cut.  Stylists are trained in all aspects of hair including men's cuts, and men deserve the same attention to hair as their counterparts.  In my experience men often have haircutting needs that cannot be met by their current discount haircut providers.   Read More...
