Moshi Moshi
Indy: I've been getting various kinds of asymmetrical swoopy cuts at Moshi Moshi since the 2000s, when I lived in Carrboro and they just had the one salon on Franklin Street. Clearly, we are meant to be together, because they opened a second shop at Golden Belt in Durham as my life migrated there. First of all, it's just a nice place to hang, with its Hello Kitty gone urban chic vibe. It's like chilling inside a modernist pink cupcake. It feels fance but not stuffy or posh, and it has not a whiff of the mustache-waxed dudebro vibe of some of the area's "manlier" salons. There's indie rock on the playlist and cool women with tattoos will say swear words to you (if you want! swearing is optional) while they expertly razor off your locks. Shout out to Mary, who must have, like, a topographical map full of pushpins locating my cowlicks, which she's been valiantly battling into submission for years. —Brian Howe

Indy: INDY editors don't do yoga; that's too relaxing for a journalist. (We prefer to keep our bodies wracked with coffee and hunched-over clattering.) So we would keep mum if this category were best yoga class. But we happen to know of a relatively new Durham yoga studio because it doubles as a dance venue, which is something we do know about. Ever noticed that crooked little building with the glass brick windows, shoved in that odd little nook between Duke Street and Lakewood Avenue? Surprise: it's gorgeous inside, with watery light spilling into a spacious room of warm wood and brick. It houses the dance company OM Grown Dancers and hosted a Durham Independent Dance Artists show in March, and it offers a baffling variety of yoga classes. If we ever decided to give up journalism and get healthy, we would totally want to do it there. —Brian Howe
