Once upon a time, women clustered in "beauty parlors" on a weekly basis. Nowadays, there is little time for this important ritual. One of the few places that seeks to revive those days is Venus Hair, where you are encouraged to linger even after your hair is done. The tiny, cash-only shop is owned and operated by the Susan Romeo and Susan Venus, who also create a lot of the hairstyles worn to Houston's wacky annual Hair Ball. No matter what type of hairstyle you are aiming for, they can achieve it. Beauty parlors like this are as rare as the antiques in the nearby shops.
