SANTA ROSA, Calif. -- No power? No problem. Despite PG&E's Public Safety Power Shutoff, customers were still happily getting their hair done Salon Twelve in Santa Rosa.

When asked what they don't have, stylist Rachel Sandoval said, "Hot water, blow drying, credit cards, computer systems, phone. We can't call clients we just hope they show up."

She went on to say, "We got my two hands and my smarts and the trust of my clients."
