The New New Perk
Remember bubble-era perks? We're talking free on-site massages, lunch-hour yoga classes, and fridges stocked with all the Jolt cola a nerd could drink. That's over--unless you work at one of those companies that time forgot (read: GOOG). For the rest of us in the Valley, the new new perk is still available on site but no longer free. To wit: OnSite Haircuts, a San Jose, Calif.-based business founded by long-time Valley stylist Dena Kaufer. She parks her Winnebago-turned-mobile salon outside your company and gives lunch-hour trims, shampoos, and blow-drys (sorry, no colors or perms). She's at eBay every Friday, Yahoo every Tuesday, and, yes, Google every Thursday. Bring your Visa or Mastercard.

Great idea! Given how much time many of us spend at work, I think this and similar ideas is something that entrepreneurs should explore.
