A Guide to the Best of Southern California : BEAUTY : Hair That Speaks Volumes
The beat of rock ‘n’ roll blends with the buzz of blow-dryers inside Long Hair Rocks, a Pasadena salon that specializes in the high-volume styles favored by rockers and their followers. Among the musicians who take five here for trims--priced from $29 to $39 for first-timers--are Layne Bourgoyne (Rock Liberation Army), Paul Gilbert (Mr. Big) and Roxy Petrucci and Jan Kuehnemund (Vixen). Owners Thyliese Fohster and Robert Haigh welcome shorthairs too. But they draw the line when it comes to making short hair long via extensions. “Grow your own,” Haigh snarls.
