If you're the kind of person who gets a haircut only when your partner tells you to, or the kind who wants a buff coiffure on a regular basis, Verve has the laid-back yet fashion-smart atmosphere that appeals to both the fashionable and the conservative. The wife-and-husband team of Julie and Jeff Lopinot fits right into the continuing evolution of South Grand as it becomes Cosmopolitan Central, "cosmopolitan" meaning that within a two-block radius you can get your hair cut, get dinner, get drunk and get laid. You can walk into Verve without any idea of what you want or with precise instructions, and Julie and Jeff are sweet and patient in fulfilling the task. We know a woman who went to Verve just three hours before her wedding because she was confident she'd be bridal-glow gorgeous for her ceremony. And she was.
