Its stylists can cut and fashion the perfect mohawk, and when your hair is dyed green, it’s not an accident. An onsite artist puts the capper on new looks with henna tattoos. Highlighting its alternative ambiance, each month Medusa’s chooses a local up-and-coming band to receive a complete rock-‘n’-roll makeover. On the first Wednesday of every month, the salon turns off the music and blow-dryers to accommodate its clients with sensory issues.
