Playing chameleon with your mane can be nerve-wracking, to say the least. Who hasn't gone one shade too Ronald McDonald in their lifetimes, or stood on the verge of frying their hair because of a bleach addiction? We're here to fix that by providing a highly subjective list of salons, arranged from north to south, with stylists who are as talented as Jackson Pollock, if Jackson Pollock used copper, chestnut and golden tones in his splattered works. We'd love to hear how you'd expand it from west to east, so the comment box is all yours, folks.
