Lipstick and Bullets’ altruistic style mavens both gussy up guests’ tresses and run a nonprofit job-training organization out of their laid-back salon space. Slather scalps and strands with a clear coat of conditioning glaze ($65) that seals cuticles and protects strands from frizz-inducing lightning strikes, helping to keep hair shiny and supple for up to eight weeks. Alternately, opt for partial highlights ($85), which add depth to monochromatic manes with subtle natural streaks or bold, thick stripes of color. Or combine the two treatments for a full hairdo renovation. All three options conclude with a haircut ($55), during which savvy stylists wield scissors, razor blades, and a slew of other styling tools to trim and texturize locks so they frame the client’s face, like Sharpie sideburns scribbled on a yearbook photo.
Lipstick and Bullets also gives back to the community through its nonprofit job-training organization Career Styles Inc, recently featured in San Jose State's Spartan Daily newspaper. Career Styles helps foster children and troubled youth and helps single parents to obtain a license in cosmetology through an organized apprenticeship program and by practicing scissors-handling on bowls of spaghetti.
