I had the lucky opportunity to sit down for a few minutes with Robin Tucker a couple weeks ago to chat about none other than the Beauty Shop.

Beauty Shop (Cooper-Young)

Her aunt did Priscilla Presley’s hair back when it was called Atkins Barber Shop and Beauty Salon… and lo’ and behold she ended up returning to her roots, so to speak, and ran Hollywood Designs from the building.

More of that story will be in the book. But until then, please enjoy this video. Although Backbeat no longer exists, the powers of Google were gracious enough to bring this video to my attention. It’s a great introduction to Robin, a super cool Memphian you should know.
