Got Quarantine Hair? Time for Some Pandemic Pampering

Some of our pressing concerns du jour — relating to job loss, mortgage or rent, and of course, health — are clearly important, but it doesn’t mean other less crucial mat- ters haven’t been keeping us up at night. We’re talking about the beauty stuff, or lack thereof. California Governor Gavin Newsom announced that hair salons may be allowed to reopen at the state level in early June, that good haircut feeling might still be a ways away depending on local restrictions. Fortunately, local salons have stepped up to fulfill our coiffing needs.
