New Artist/Lower Haight Fall 2013 Art Walk

The Lower Haight Art Walk. Always busy and always festive.

While we enjoyed wondering down Haight Street listening to live music and popping into our neighbors shops for new artwork, the energy in our salon was rising as the night went on getting louder and crazier.

Here are some photos of the lovely folks (and a cute dog) that came to our opening.




This month features paintings and zines by artist Jeffrey Cheung  and  Tiny Splendor Press & Gallery.

Artwork and zines for sale in Edo until November.

Hair Make-Over

It's just a normal Thursday when a new client strolls in to get haircut. Not just any haircut though, a full on make-over. How fun! With hair just below her butt, Jason soon takes on the challenge and starts to chop away in ponytail sections. 1 hour later and Viola. We have a super cute pixie and and a super happy client. She was practically dancing with joy and totally made Jason's morning.

Bye, bye TWO FEET of hair. Hello Mia Farrow.


Love this client and in love with this amazing new haircut.

Little furry creatures


There is nothing more that we love in Edo than your adorable little pooch lounging around while you get your haircut. 
------This is not to say that we don't love and appreciate the big labs and shepherds of Edo who run laps in the salon like they're pony's but those cute little pups who tip-toe around the floor checking peoples hair out has the be the cutest thing we've ever seen.

These are just a couple of cuties from this past week.

Morphologies...a collaborative art show

We are absolutely loving the new art installation this month!
Edo's art curator did a wonderful job getting creative and inspired by the pastels of late winter/early spring and selected some amazing artists to showcase their work in our gallery.


Julia Lucey delivers some beautiful collage prints inspired by her backcountry ventures over her summertime and spring breaks.





Here are some pieces from the second artist, Vanesa Gringold. Her work is light and airy but still vibrant and colorful.



She also made hanging-mobiles in our front window!





And last but not least we have an incredible installation on our back wall by Ana Labastida. Reflective, 3D moths!



Artwork will be up until mid-April and the opening reception will be during the Lower Haight Art Walk on Saturday March 2nd from 7pm-10pm. Come have drink, listen to music and enjoy artwork by these amazing ladies!

Spooky Wednesday


Don't you just love Halloween? As I walked through the Financial District of San Francisco this morning I felt a little bad snickering to myself. I happened to be the only one in full face paint and costume at 9:30 am surrounded by a sea of bank tellers and lawyers in business suits. 'No costume' rules at work always get me...it's Halloween lovlies! Slap on some face paint and enjoy your day full of costumes, pumpkins and the best part....fun sized Snickers bars :)


Here are some photos of the Edo staff at work today. Mind you, it was mandatory to dress up for our wonderful clients and cute trick-or-treaters so we put some elbow into it








From all of us at Edo Salon, Happy Halloween!

Let your imagination run wild



A new month brings us another new artist!


We are so happy to present artwork from a fun and wonderfully creative client, Betsy Roszkowiak!






Betsy's paintings showcase a childlike innocence including brightly colored trees, long swirly hair and anything your little mind day dreams of. Her subjects are imaginative, and dream-like while her DIY solar system installation remains jovial and innocent as it fills our main salon window.



The theme carried throughout her work is from a perspective of life through a little girls eyes. Her exhibition is titled 'Joanna. The Imaginary Friend'. 



 "Joanna is my friend, but the adults they cannot see her.
She told me the sky was green and the grass was blue.
The adults said those were the biggest lies that had ever been told
But I don’t care what they say, I know Joanna speaks true.

By day Joanna lives in my pocket and hides in the trees at night
She told me that her favorite color is a sparkling drop of dew
And that sometimes Neptune can be the same size as the moon 
So the question is this, what does your Joanna say to you?"



Betsy not only crafted a solar system but she also created a 'handelier' (a chandelier made of multi-colored stuffed hands) and turned our back wall into a larger than life replica of Joanna's face. 




Betsy's art will be on display and for sale until the first week of August!
