For those who want good music and a party atmosphere, Hard Rock Cafe might be a pretty good choice. For a good haircut and a shave, perhaps a local barbershop or salon. But for good music, a party atmosphere and a haircut and shave? Floyd?s 99 Barbershop. The new barbershop, which opened Thursday at 1040 Hollywood Way in Burbank, offers the amenities of a good barbershop, plus old-school looks, such as leather barber chairs and hot-lather shaves. The walls are decorated with a collage of cover art from Nirvana, Metallica, the Rolling Stones and Marilyn Manson.

Glenoaks Boulevard pedestrians don't typically attract much attention, but a man walking down the street Saturday wearing a friar's habit and a tonsure haircut sure did. The tonsure, or "Friar Tuck" haircut was the final piece of Charlie Schroeder's historical reenactment this weekend, which garnered jokes about how cold his head was and tears from his wife. "I walked in and she started crying from shock," Schroeder said. "And yes, she knows I'm crazy. " Schroeder's reenactment of an 18th century friar's walk between the San Gabriel Mission Arcángel to San Fernando Mission Rey de España, a distance of 26.7 miles, is the culmination of a year of research for his first book about the past 2,000 years of Western civilization.

Police were searching Friday for a man who robbed a liquor store with a 6-inch knife and then escaped on foot. Nelson's Liquor Store, 4420 N.

The roar of cheering students drowned out the buzz of the electric hair clippers being used to shave John Muir Middle School Principal Dan Hacking's bright pink hair into a Mohawk Wednesday at the school's Family Fun Night. Hacking had agreed to have his hair shaved and styled into a colored Mohawk if students raised $2,500 for the Red Cross to help Hurricane Katrina Victims. Assistant Principal David Cole agreed to join him if the students raised more than $3,000.

Molly Shore Michael Levitt, 16, got a chorus of mixed responses when he asked a group of schoolchildren if they liked onions. The students, in Washington Elementary School's Environ- mental Garden summer program, were preparing to eat a batch of French onion soup he had cooked as part of that day's lesson. "Whoa, it's good," Oliver Hernandez, 10, exclaimed. Arutin Haznazarian, 10, agreed. "Delicious," Arutin said. "Are there seconds?" Michael, a member of John Burroughs High School's Interact Club, helps teach the two-hour "Eating Healthy From Your Own Garden" class each day.

So I’m driving home the other day and we pass a barber shop. The kids notice the candy stick-like barber pole out front and ask what that means. “I’m glad you ask,” I tell them, and proceed to enlighten them with what Wikipedia told me. “In the Middle Ages,” I start, “barbers not only cut hair, but also performed surgery and tooth extractions. Oh, and they used leeches for bloodletting. A basin at the top of the pole represented the vessel in which the leeches were kept.

Barber shows skill and grace under fire I recently had the pleasure of watching professional barber Shelley L. D’Urso at Claudine’s Hair Salon in Burbank give three children a haircut. What an experience. The oldest child, who was about 6 years old, got into the barber’s chair with the confidence of someone who just finished six months of boot camp. This was, without a doubt, not his first haircut. He followed the barber’s directions to the letter, and the barber handled her scissors and comb like she was painting a picture.

Moteaze’s Salon and Spa in Burbank may well add “gallery” to its name. Located at 4021 W. Burbank Blvd., the salon mixes hair styling with the works of local artists. It held a pre-grand-opening celebration where family and friends of Moteaze, who goes only by one name, gathered to sample some of the hair salon and spa’s services. Prior to the celebration, artist-in-residence Melissa May Curtis could be found with hammer in hand as she hung her works of art on the salon’s gray walls.
