Wedding Hair Styles to Old School Pinups at Parlor!

The Parlor Beauty Squad has been exploring the retro world of hair.  We have had a collection of inspiring workshops in recent months.  From collaborating with invited hairstyling experts to sharing techniques and exercising skills during our Monday Education Days. Honing our "hard tool" (that's an industry term for iron and brush work) as well as our liquid tool skill set has given us a large repitoire to draw from.  Below we have documented the fruits of our "labor of love" with award winning photographer Isis Charise.  In early December we were whipping up plenty of old school pinup looks!  

Explore and enhance your glamour, sensuality, and self-esteem.  Have an incredibly fun and empowering experience and end up with a gorgeous pinup portrait that you will want to look at again and again.  Every woman deserves a portrait of herself to admire, adore, and cherish.  Participants are given a head to toe vintage makeover and an opportunity to take a step back in time with vintage costumes and ephemera.  Finish up the class with a fully edited private web page to view your images and a quality pin-up portrait of yourself.  All for only $300

Sweet Mary as our retro glamour girl by Eva. If we have inspired you to pick up a vintage frock or dress, check out Mary's super retro clothes in her  Etsy Store... "Girls Who Wear Glasses",

Michelle produced some glamorous wedding updo hairstyles, to document her collection of skills in this area.

Sarah explored options on our very own "soon to be" bride Julie.  Drawing from both the retro hair category as well as the classic french twist genre, she looks ready for the aisle.

Plenty of options were available still to Amanda whose model's hair was just past the chin area.  Set with beautiful curls she came up with a very demure innocent look on her model .

Our Newest Stylist Erin completes the Parlor training program!

Who could forget the paintings adorning our walls during the summer?  Erin Boyle our resident artist and apprentice extraordinaire was our featured artist this summer at Parlor.  Erin has recently been promoted as our newest protege and "Hair Painter".  Perhaps you  have already experienced her blowdrying and/ shampooing techniques or one of her many  "Hand Relief Treatments".  The story is ...she decided to to leave a clientele in Syracuse and move to New York City to take a bite out of The Big Apple.  She has recently completed our intense training program and is available for appointments just in time for the holiday season. 

 She has an amazing eye for color and placement.  She is creative and can think outside or inside the box... you choose!  She is a patient listener and highly self critical.  She always has a new idea brewing in her head trying to out do her last creation.  While I am extremely excited about her coloring capabilities she can also cut a mean head of hair! 

Here is a link to book a "new talent" hair color or haircut appointment at Parlor with Erin or feel free to call us at the salon at 212-673-5520.
