The Huntington Beach Hair Co. is planning a party to show off its new look, but even with the makeover, the new owners are sticking with the salon's colorful roots. In preparation for the kick-off party Friday, new owners Eva Jasperson and Tammi Fronek painted the walls of the Bolsa Chica Street shop Tiffany blue and added new pedicure chairs and a television. But they have strived to keep the homey spirit of the establishment, which is more than 30 years old. Jasperson's mother, Julie Snyder, was a stylist at the salon for more than 20 years and managed it for the past 13 years until her death in October at age 74. "I grew up in the industry," Jasperson said.

FOR THE RECORD. . The ?In the Pipeline? column Oct. 15, ?Event gives soldiers a cut of the profits,? should have said the cut-a-thon will take place at the Beauty Supply Zone & Salon on Oct. 25.. . ?Don?t include me in the picture.

o7Here are some items the council will consider tonight.f7 FIRE STATION DISPATCHING Newport Beach Fire Chief Tim Riley is asking the City Council to spend about $195,000 to install a new call-alerting system for five of the city's eight fire stations. The Smart Station system, produced by Huntington Beach-based WestNet Inc., can help firefighters get to emergency calls as much as 45 seconds faster. Under the current dispatching system, an operator gets information on the location and type of emergency and passes it on to a dispatcher, who then contacts the closest fire station.

The Falcon Theatre is once again staging a classy, original take on an old fairy tale. "The Empress and Her New Clothes" is, for the most part, refreshingly free of the conventional story of a vain and foolish king who so gullibly walks out of the palace in his underwear, too ashamed to let himself admit he isn't one of the elite few who can actually see the magnificent (and totally nonexistent) material his clothes are made from. Instead, the play pays homage to charming tales like Audrey Hepburn's "Roman Holiday," where a sweet, lovely young princess grabs a chance to temporarily live life as a commoner.
