Hug It Out

Life imitates art today on the Circle, where around 280 black-clad student-stylists from the south side’s Paul Mitchell school are embracing anyone within arm’s length. Even those with split ends. The mass squeezing is a national Paul Mitchell campaign in its third year, and a late shift will run from 7 to 9 p.m. Air kisses optional.

Fernandez began writing for Indianapolis Monthly in 1995 while studying journalism at Indiana University. One of her freelance assignments required her to join a women's full-tackle football team for a season. She joined the staff in 2005 to edit IM's ancillary publications, including Indianapolis Monthly Home. In 2011, she became a senior editor responsible for the Circle City section as well as coverage of shopping, homes, and design-related topics. Now the director of editorial operations, she lives in Garfield Park.
