Inked Kitty's Lounge
From their risque pinup-girl posters to their rock 'n' roll memorabilia, it's clear the stylists at Inked Kitty's Lounge invoke a vintage spirit—with a dash of sass. They bestow lads and ladies with retro looks, such as pompadours and finger waves, adding fun, bold touches, including Cruella de Vil stripes and Rosie the Riveter bandannas. Rock and punk 'dos edge toward the rebellious. Yet the team doesn't alienate classic elegance, administering gorgeous highlights and waxing services.
