Hair Movie Night
When watching classic black and white films, we can’t help but fawn over the bygone hairstyles that seem impossible to replicate on our own. And this Monday, we wont have to long for the locks alone. Morphic salon, our go-to for twisty braids, is hosting Hair Movie Night, celebrating the iconic tresses of Marilyn Monroe. Guests will get to see the film Some Like It Hot, while munching on popcorn, and slurping down libations. Even luckier guests will win novelty items of the actress in a competitive raffle.
