A.J. and Allison had really important napkins. Over a few glasses of wine, the pair scribbled ideas and notes onto the normally disposable squares, and what began as a dream over drinks quickly grew into Poco Hair Company. Today, the ladies give hair the attention they once gave napkins, creating dazzling 'dos via cut and color services. Their irreverent decor engages the eyes of patrons as trained stylists expertly detach split ends, add desired layers, and remove stray pelican feathers for a variety of styles, from bohemian to natural to punk.

Pro Tip: Visuals aids are always a good thing to use when showing your stylist what you're wanting.
What's the biggest mistake you see clients make when they style their hair at home?
[People] not using the proper products for their hair texture, so their hair is not holding the style or giving them the look they're trying to achieve.
What's the number one grooming tip every person should know?
Use a shampoo and conditioner with UV protector to protect your virgin or colored hair. Your color fades [during] your typical wash out, heat styling and UV lights.
If the apocalypse ever comes, what low-maintenance hairstyle would you recommend for the foraging person on-the-go?
A short modern pixie with a versatile fringe. Similar to Jennifer Laurence's hair cut.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
