Salon Review: Pirate Salon, San Francisco I found Pirate Salon through Yelp originally, as I was searching for a salon that seemed hip enough to do interesting cuts, and also catered specifically to curls.

Squeak Machine

Alternative model, make-up artist, and queen of the dreadfalls, Squeak is just about the only person I’ve ever met who can pull off bubblegum pink and still look like she might kick your ass.  She has recently launched her own site, SqueakMachine, with a ton of makeup tips and tutorials, DIY sewing projects, and hair […]

Haute Macabre Approved: Katie Shillingford

Katie Shillingford is the fashion editor of Dazed and Confused and stylist to many of Gareth Pugh’s runway shows. She also has just about the best hair ever.  So, for bringing us pretty pictures, gorgeous runway shows, and a personal closet the HM staff would kill for, I give an official HM Thumbs-up to Katie […]



Every time I go for a haircut, I spend a couple of hours online realizing how stupidly difficult it is to find pictures of good hair.  Hair blogs are few and far between, and most of them focus on celebrity up-dos or styles and colors I wouldn’t want to be at the same all-you-can-eat Vegas […]
