It isn’t uncommon to see guests leaving Rock Paper Scissors with hair bearing streaks of magenta and cobalt. Or walking out with edge, razor-cut styles or mohawks. Of course, it is just a common to see a long line of classic bobs and neat trims emerging out the door. That's exactly the way owners John and Deborah Harrington like it—they chose their staff for the versatility of their skills, which includes doling out specialty services like Japanese straightening and retro-inspired roller sets. And the same flexibility applies to the salon's nail technicians, who spend their days decorating digits with everything from traditional
