Best Place To Have Your Head Massaged (2008)


When I finally decided to visit a salon, after many years of Nick the Barber, I realized why people spend the money—or, at least, why they spend the money at HAIR MATES. It's the ravishing, punkily dressed Japanese women and the penetrating magic they work on your soaking scalp. My God. I'd pay $30 for the wash alone; in fact, I often find myself tempted to skip the haircut itself, because it prevents me from returning right away. But don't get me wrong—the white guy does a decent job, too!
