Judging from the window display, you probably want to avoid being on Hairroin's naughty list. The Hollywood hair salon features a whole lot of sinister: the first thing that popped out at us was the glittering, sequined brass knuckles adorning the side of a black reindeer. Then there's the Christmas bobcat who's clawing a bird out of mid-air (we were so taken/weirded out that we caught it from multiple angles). But the piece de resistance is the cute stuffed figure (Santa Claus?) who's having a picnic made of his entrails. Creepy! With a name like Hairroin, it's probably a safe bet that they've got an affinity for the darker side of things. Or, since there's soon to be a barbershop opening next door, maybe Hairroin's trying to send the message that they're the wrong people to eff with.
