Bowery Boogie reports that the former home of In God We Trust will soon become a hair salon. Workers have been renovating the Ludlow Street space since the shop closed, and recently two barber chairs appeared. As the blog points out, this salon will join fellow haircare specialists Tommy Guns, Pimps & Pinups, Kropps and Bobbers, Cocoro, and Ringo. Maybe we should all start calling Lower East Side the Haircut District—HairDi for short. [Bowery Boogie; Prevously]
