    The bond between an Angeleno and his or her hairstylist is deeply rooted in something we like to call "tress trust." So, rarely will someone divulge the deets of their locksmith for fear that the love affair will be experienced by many — and booking an appointment will become tougher than securing a table at Laurel Hardware.
