Amy Winehouse (well, her hair) for a day

On Sunday night, as I was watching the Grammys (and agreeing with Joey's assessment of the awards), I couldn't help wondering: Just how does Amy Winehouse get her hair to do that?

Then I remembered a place in the Heights that I've been wanting to check out for months: Venus Hair.

A local institution for 30 years, Susan Venus and her staff pride themselves on being able to provide their customers with ANY style, from a trim to a multi-colored mohawk. If anyone could give me an Amy Winehouse beehive, I knew they would be the ones.

An added bonus: Beehives stay good for two weeks!

Big Hair - The Sequel

Last week the Grammys inspired me to visit Venus Hair on 19th Street in the Heights to see if they could give me an Amy Winehouse beehive. The video detailed the making of the beehive and the finished product.

But that, my friends, was just the beginning. You didn't think I'd be allowed to avoid the public humiliation and bizarre reactions a hairstyle like a beehive can bring, did you? Not a chance.

Today's video shows part two -- what happened after the hair was done as I made my way around town. Honestly, it was pretty fun rocking hair like that, and most of the comments were really encouraging. Not all, of course, but most:

Venus Hair was voted Best Hair Salon and Best Color & Highlights on CitySearch 2006!




Venus Hair

When Susan Venus' art car, called the Venus Hairse, is parked outside her beauty shop, it means the salon is open for business. Once inside, you may still think you're looking at an art car or that you've fallen through the looking glass. Mardi Gras masks, beads, mannequins, Venus de Milo figures and paintings by local artists cover every wall and hang from ceilings at Venus Hair. Customers wear retro animal-print capes to protect clothing. Heights characters drop by to chat as if they're visiting Mayberry's barbershop. There are no conservative style police lurking here, so no request is greeted with a raised eyebrow. Ask for the world: Venus is only too happy to dye your hair three colors, give you a Mohawk or create a tinted, bouffant up do for your great-aunt Esmeralda's wedding. It's your hair. Express yourself.
