Here are a few things to know about Watermelon Sugar Salon, the place that took over the old Painted Bird spot:
– It’s named after the owner’s favorite book: “In Watermelon Sugar,” by Richard Brautigan. Nick (the owner) has a copy on hand – it’s a pretty darned quirky book.
– At least a couple of their stylists used to work at Edo Salon. So I’d say they’re on par with the stylists at the various Haight Street salons.
– They have a very cool iPad attachment that serves as their credit card swipe. I love seeing young businesses embracing new technologies for some reason (because I’m a nerd?).
So a decent option if you find yourself wanting a cut without a commute. And a thumbs up to them for bringing a service to the uHood we didn’t have quite so accessible before. Now what else can we use super close by? I’m thinking hardware store, late-night diner, Korean bbq….
