Question Of The Day: What's A Hairdresser's Car?

You might be suffering from auto show fatigue, so let's take a break from all the Detroit hubbub and discuss a matter of great import. What the heck is a hairdresser's car, anyway?

Surely, the dream car of the neighborhood barber is different than the dream car of a celebrity stylist, right? We're counting on our trusty commenters to explain what it all means, and how to feel about it.
