L.A.

On Cahuenga Blvd in Hollywood, the street on which Hairroin, Jarman’s salon is located you can find a bar, lounge or club to suit any personality. Off the Blvd, Jarman recommends Vine Lounge, Hyde (if you want to see the Paparazzi) and The Huntley (for incredible roof top views of the Pacific Ocean). For alternative lifestyles, Jarman recommends The Abbey on Robertson any day or night, Ultra Suede on Friday or Saturday and Girl Bar at The Factory on Fridays.

Jarman’s top picks on the Blvd. are:

1. King King for House Music.

2. Tiny’s for Punk Rock
