Visitor Tips and News About Big Scissors
Before my trip to Crescent City, I went to one of my favorite web sites before a road trip: RoadsideAmerica. A friend of mine who visits Crescent City on business had never seen the scissors, which made me even more curious, so I really wanted to see them. I found Kim's Hair Studio quite by accident, and it seemed to be thriving! The scissors are not mechanized, but it is still in business and is a delightful little place, as is Crescent City![Bernadette, 09/02/2010]
Giant Scissors on top of Kim's hair salon -- still there. The scissors building sits behind the Bistro Gardens restaurant next to the Beacon Burger. You can walk along the harbor and see seals and a large sea lion population.[Tiki, 03/12/2009]
I was here in August of 2008 and the scissors were still here, but never working. We went by 3 times during daytime hours. Now it all makes sense -- the place was still there but in the process of closing. What a shame, I wonder what they did with them? The Trees of Mystery and the Crescent City Aquarium were still worth it though.[J.R., 01/15/2009]
These scissors are no longer there, instead it is a small restaurant now. :-([Shellee, 01/11/2009]
These large scissors adorn a hair salon in the harbor area. They [are motorized to automatically] open and close. They sit next to an old (but wonderful) burger stand that used to display a large burger on a lighthouse.
There are several roadside attractions in the area, including an Eiffel Tower, Paul Bunyan and Babe.[Tiki, 05/15/2007]
