Just a reminder that today is Farrah Hair Day at one of our favorite beauty spots, the Beehive Salon in Williamsburg, where you can get a Farrah Fawcett blowout for $50.

Tuesdays are training days at the tattoorific Woodley & Bunny salon in Williamsburg, which means pro bono coifs at the hands of assistants who are apprenticing to become full-fledged stylists. We stopped by for a gratis blowout recently, which was unexpectedly excellent and a likely gateway to riskier hair experiments on some future Tuesday. (more…)
