It’s had the same name since it opened as the city’s first unisex barbershop in 1971, but there’s nothing passé about the salon these days. In 2006, musician Johanna Fateman (of electronic-punk band Le Tigre) and Seattle stylist Shaun Cottle took over as the new owners. They revamped the space while still leaving behind traces of the original establishment—including the tag line for women…for men emblazoned in gold on the window. Filled with custom furniture and standout art, the salon—which offers haircuts (from $85) and single-processing colors (from $100)—already counts a host of art-world celebrities among its regular clients.
