With its larger-than-life personalities and constantly shifting alliances, it's a wonder there's never been a soap opera centered around the world of upscale hairsalons. The latest brouhaha is last weekend's mass exodus from Sally Hershberger Downtown. The legendary Hershberger said she was totally surprised to learn that colorist Marie Robinson—who left the salon on March 19—was planning to open her own shop and take a significant chunk of her former colleagues with her. The revelation resulted in the sudden firing of all of the soon-to-defect employees, including Hershberger's rising star stylist Tommy Bucket, before they had a chance to jump ship.
