EDO Salon is the brainchild of Jayne Matthews and Chri Longstreet, best friends, cohorts, and flamboyant ladies about town. In 1998, their shared creative vision began in a vacant Baptist church in the colorful and emerging Lower Haight district. They saw the potential for a mecca of inspired hair & art that was a springboard for street fashion and community. Years later, EDO Salon has become one of the salons that supports and supplies style, art and the next-level to trend-setters and timeless denizens of classic cool. [1]
