The ever-remarkable musician, composer, artist and horse owner RAVEN CHACON (Navajo)!! I’ve been cutting Raven’s wild-ass hair for years now during his visits to NYC or when I’m out in the great Albuquerque, New Mexico southwest for beaut, rowdy music shows we play together. We trim his ends sharp and take out some bulk so it lies smaller to his head. I suggest hair oil for his long layers to keep them soft out in the desert climate.

BILL HAMILTON comes through Fringe every few months for a shorter, textured cut! The other day he was on his way to Brooklyn so I photographed him in front of the deli across the street from Fringe Salon…loved playing around with all the reflections!
It’s easy to trek to and from Williamsburg, Brooklyn because the Williamsburg Bridge is located very close by! Whether on bike, taxi, foot, rollerskates….finally, it’s a great time of year to get outside!

SIOBHAN WATSON's beautiful layers of red hair, bike and smiling baby are captured by photographer SAM POLCER for his book "New York Bike Style"— featuring New York City bicyclers!
Siobhan came into Fringe Salon today and we figured out that I’ve been doing her hair over a span of 10 years! She has tons of hair and it’s very rewarding to carve away at it so that her cut lasts a long time.
