1-5-1 Hair Salon Contest!

All right, here's the deal!

Leave me ONE comment with ONE cheesy hair salon name from your area, and your town or state:

1. It can be a hair salon or a pet grooming salon but it must have a punny name (think "groaner").
2. It has to ACTUALLY EXIST.
3. It can be from the phone book or something you pass every day.
4. Like this: "In Daytona Beach there is a salon called Hair Force. HAHAHAHA!"

For every FIVE comments I get I will give away ONE free download of my Reversi sock pattern. So 50 comments = 10 patterns!

Seriously, all you have to do is look one up! Contest closes Saturday April 19 at midnight.

**Update** please leave me only ONE comment per person, though you can include more than one salon name. I'm keeping a count. Thanks!

"BANGZ" in Montclair, NJ. The best part is that they're expanding to become a full service salon but the name BANGZ will remain.

Ha - what a great contest idea! I pass a pet salon called "Groomingdales" every day on my way work - it cracks me up. Winston Salem, NC.

Since someone already took my favorite - Curl Up & Dye (we have one in Saint Paul too), I looked at a list of names and found this one - I love it and may have to start going there - Tortoise and Hair ...

To-daze Hair in Blaine, Minnesota.
I'm still not sure what they were going for with that one.

I am still cracking up over Andi's day spa. No, I don't think I would go and I'd want to know what's in their mud masks.

We had this hair place back in upstate NY called, "Who Cut Your Hair." kind of after the "Whose on first bit." There radio ads were always annoying.

Let's see... There is A Pawsitive Touch Grooming Salon in South St. Paul, MN, and Joan's Little Hair House, in Cottage Grove, MN. Both of them make me chuckle every time I see them.

got the Curl up and dye as well

also the Wild Hare (a rabbit is their logo)
Head Hunters is one of my favorites, Mane Event is kinda corny. The guy who has been in business underneath our day spa simply calls his business Hair.

I just got my hair cut yesterday and was browsing the hair cut magazines and came across a lot. I don't know that we have any cool ones here, but here's one I found while reading at my boring salon (The Colour Room):

Bangs N Burns, Alexandria, VA

Here's another cute one:

Fourth Lock on Canal St in Washington D.C. I don't know if it's on the 4th of the canal's locks, but the hair connection is great.

There's a hair salon in Marshfield MA called the Permanent Solution. I think it is a very bad choice, it makes me think of Hitlers permanent solution.

It isn't funny but it makes me groan.
