WHAT'S ON YOUR IPOD?
We asked Adrian Wallace, a colorist at Manhattan's esteemed Rita Hazan Salon, what he's been listening to.
"Lady (Hear Me Tonight)" by Modjo. "I can't help feeling like dancing when I'm listening to this upbeat song. It takes me back to surfing in Biarritz, France, and the cafes in San Sebastian, Spain."
"Kashmir" by Led Zeppelin. "This is one of rock's greatest songs. Listen to it on the open road."
"I Belong to You" by Lenny Kravitz. "This song is cool and sexy, just like Lenny."
