Chicago's salon culture

No, not Classics Cafe, silly, I'm talking about the Mario Tricoci up on East Ontario. Hurray for my new haircut--as close to the Natalie Portman/Closer look as can be achieved on someone who isn't Natalie Portman (and who refuses to see Closer, but who nevertheless liked the way her hair looked in the previews). Lest Chicago alumni come to this blog and bemoan the "New of C" at which students spend 5 hours a day primping, I should note that I read Martin Buber on the bus ride back to Hyde Park. (Given that, as was reported in Elle, Natalie Portman has an extensive Judaica library, perhaps she, too, read Buber following her haircut.)
