SoFla’s Most-Stylish Salons
Say Holiday Hair Goes Retro for 2009/2010

So we canvassed some of South Florida’s most follicle-forward hairstylists for the hot trends hair will have this season. It turns out a lot of them are looking backward for inspiration, sampling from the ‘20s, ‘30s, ’40s and ‘60s.

In the heart of artistic downtown Delray Beach, the Pineapple Grove Main Street District, there is a little piece of London, called Bond Street Salon.
