Hair Job

Interesting choice of a hair salon name. I guess you could say that the act of butchering the top of someone's head is more or less a creative endeavor... or not. And I'm sure that these metal pieces dangling from the Opus sign have some attraction or at least meaning to hair treatments. I'm just not getting it this morning. I'm sure the 'hair artists' at 102 Exchange Street could explain it all to me. In a younger day I once misspoke and called one of these establishments a hair saloon. I might have been closer to the truth then I thought. Hey, I might have stumbled on to something: scissors and alcoholic beverages a lethal combination. As a matter of fact, some might say that the top of my head has been a lifelong experiment with just these tools.
I better not go there. 
I'll let this sleepin' dog lie.

  1. I'm not going to touch anything having to do with your head - it's way too mysterious. I've gone into a few of these hair saloons but they leave me cold so it's back to plain ol' barbershop!

  3. I once went into a hair salon where they offered me a glass of wine at 9am I changed my request from colour to 'light' trim and left never to return:))

  4. About two years ago I posted a photo of a barber/salon that was scheduled to open as a salon & bar. It never did open, thankfully. The tools hanging from this sign look a bit like implements of torture to me.

  5. Went to a place called The Cutting Edge today. . . As for Opus, hmmm. . . I think you should step inside and experiment . . .

  6. Yes, those dangly things are kind of weird. I think I have seen other "hair salons" named Opus, but I never thought about whether the name made sense or not. I get my hair cut at a place called Barber Shop.

  7. That is a strange name for a hair salon, to me, and I certainly agree about the items hanging from the sign.

  8. Used to do my wash, when I was in college, at a place was called suds and suds. Beer on one side of the building -- washing machines on the other. Sorta your saloon and salon effect -- barbara
