TAXIDERMY & HAIR
TREATMENTS: PARLOUR & JUKE
Nestled in a
little brick complex next to Mercy Lounge
is Parlour & Juke
, a delightful stray from
the salon 'norm'; filled with eye-catching oddities and a rather impressive
collection of taxidermy. You won't find pink sparkly things here. Orrrr
abrasively baby doll-esque decorations - making P&J the perfect place for
girls AND boys.
You can tell that she's spent plenty of time and
consideration creating a unique and inviting environment that almost makes you
forget you're in a salon and not in some rustic museum off a beaten path
somewhere in Louisiana.
(Bon Ton, maybe??)
quite the antiquary, collecting anything with a bit of southern charm or
anything that might raise an eyebrow. Taxidermy, vintage anatomy posters, horns
and skulls - even the furniture is pleasantly dated and adds even more character
and charm. The exposed white painted brick walls offer a perfect canvas for all
of DeVaney's treasures and curiosities and compliment the wide windows that pour
in the perfect amount of natural light.
Plus I mean, really, where else can you find weaves
hanging on wall mounted antlers?
immediately greeted by the sweet salon coordinator who offered me a drink
selection, and as hot as it was that Thursday I had to go for the iced coffee.
She brought it out garnished with a sprig of mint and in ultimate southern style
- a Ball Jar!
I couldn't stop looking around at all of the
delights that the salon had to offer. The lack of frills and lace that most
salons drown in definitely made P&J
stand apart and I can say with
absolute certainty that they are setting the standard for trendy
amazing services to both genders - close shaves and beard shaping for busy
gentlemen who would prefer to have someone else get that 'stache date night
worthy and for sassy ladies - cuts, colors, waxing and blow dry services. (I
love me a good blow out) Everything you might need for a night out, special
occasion, or just because.<?XML:NAMESPACE PREFIX = O />
