Unlike the playground game it takes its name from, Rock Paper Scissors Hair Salon has nothing to do with competition. Instead, the staff members—who have more than 35 years of combined experience—emphasize cooperation as they work closely with their clients to craft personalized looks with their extensive assortment of hair services. Inside the modern and sleek salon, in which red fixtures dangle like stalactites, the stylists work their magic with high-end products from Goldwell, L'Oréal, Simply Smooth, and Moroccanoil. The team also encourages clients to enjoy complimentary coffee, tea, wine, or their choice of a high-five or bear hug—but customers must supply the bear.
