They said in the 70s that unisex salons would
never catch on...however the huge success
of Herman's Klipjoint inspired other salons
to follow our lead and become unisex salons
Herman's Klipjoint became one of the most
famous salons in Dublin. The great music playing
in the salon coupled with the top-class hairstylists
brought the 'in-crowd' flocking. Herman's
became a regular haunt of actors, musicians,
and theatre folk.
