Stylists at Red Union Salon wield products from lines such as Phyto, Logics for Matrix, Redken, and Goldwell to add layers of color or imbue strands with rich shine. Like the world’s slowest carousel, colorful displays of local art rotate every season, and houseplants and hardwood floors imbue the space with an apartment-like feel. Besides trimming tresses, hair helpers can also sweep strands into updos for weddings and or long, looped braids for hands-free lasso contests.

According to the owners of Dolce Amore, their story began when a man's gift of gelato stirred so much passion in his sweetheart that she gave him their first kiss. Perhaps that's why the intimate cafe puts so much love into its sweets. Bakers craft a range of delicate French pastries and cakes, which are served alongside creamy Italian gelato and artisan chocolate. And yet not all of the kitchen's offerings are sweet: house made waffles, crepe omelets, crab-wich sandwiches, and a croque monsieur are all available. And each one of these dishes can be washed down with Illy coffee, or a small selection of international wines and beers.

In addition to food, Dolce Amore also serves art: its walls showcase a gallery of works by international artists. Though most of these are paintings, special exhibitions have also featured hand-made accessories and priceless sculptures, like a pure-gold statue of a broke college student eating noodles in a Styrofoam cup.

Student and professional exhibits abound throughout this 1871 Spanish-style gallery, but its main attraction is a little hard to overlook. Diego Rivera's mural The Making of a Fresco Showing the Building of a City (1931)––one of four Rivera murals in the city––spans the entire main gallery wall.
