Skin Deep articles in the Times always bring us useful news. For example, did you know that some salons stay open late, like until 11 or so?

By the way, if we have to hear the words "skinny jeans" again, esp used as shorthand for some kind of coolness, we will puke. Also, this is the 10th mention of Frederic Fekkai in Styles this year. Maybe now we know where Trip Gabriel gets his roots touched up. Okay, probably not.
