In the North End, a ghostly revolution was being led by Aerosmith’s Joe Perry, who will reign, no doubt, with screaming guitar licks and one very expensive musket.

SHAG WINS BEST WOMEN’S HAIRCUT IN THE PHOENIX POLL

After our fabulous cocktail party last night celebrating artist Dr. Lakra and Sandy speaking as part of a panel at the ICA, the SHAG staff woke up to more good news…we found out today that we won for Best Women’s Haircut in the 2010 Phoenix Poll!

Boston Phoenix Best of Boston WINNER Best Women's Cut - SHAG
Here’s what they had to say about SHAG:

“The motto at this Southie salon is “Rock Star Hair.” And rock it they do at SHAG, with a permanent disco ball, club lights, and a DJ setup. MTV (along with TLC, the Discovery Channel, and the Style Network) has featured the shop and its owner, the heavily tattooed Sandy Poirier. If that’s not a rock-star stamp of approval, than we don’t know what is.”
