Good morning, Pretties!
What a pleasure meeting you, seeing you, hearing from you, and anticipating your arrivals. Parlor is officially a week old today, and what a ride it’s been. Our team had an absolute BLAST during the Art Fair, and it seems as if you all did too! YAY!
To quote one of the greatest musicals of all time, Grease, “if you can’t be an athlete, at least be an athletic supporter” :)There are so many people to thank that it will have to be a separate post…or many..but we wanted to reach out and give a resounding “thanks for being awesome”. All of you have been so super supportive and we couldn’t have ever been here without you. So, thanks.
OPENING PARTY NEWS: Parlor has partnered with the Red Shoe Society of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City to celebrate some Pretty and a great cause. Please, please, please join us THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 27TH AT 7PM for some champagne and small snacks. We can’t wait to see all of your Pretty faces.

We apologize sincerely if you get your invites Friday. Pretty is not always on time…our sincerest apologies.

Peace, love, primp,

“To love beauty is to see light”-Victor Hugo

Good afternoon, all!

I know, I know. Pretty deep quote to title this posting. I thought it appropriate for the amount of lighting decisions being made around Parlor these days…and it made me feel a little better for being so picky about the varying shades of gold, antique gold, brass, aged brass…you get the point.

The team over at Parlor is officially killing it. See pics below. Yep, those are walls! If you ask me, they are the most beautiful, unpainted, barely hung drywall walls that have ever happened. I don’t want to officially announce it yet, so I will merely whisper: opening is probably September 13, 2012. Shh. I will let you know as soon as I know for sure. Promise.  

In other news:

Parlor has been asked to participate in Fashion Night Out on September 6! Our first official event is before our official opening, and we like it that way! We will be in front of Scandia Down and J. Crew, just across from Victoria’s Secret (if you’re in to that sort of thing). 🙂 I’m working on getting some product samples, special Parlor Steals and Deals, and of course some info packets on all of our beautifying services. Oh! Our team will also be there doing some quick makeup swaps (a touch more blush, quick lipgloss changes) and hair fluffs, like, you know, anti-frizz shine serum from Sachajuan or a little root lift  from O&M.  We hope to see you there even if it’s just to pop in and say hello! Now…what to wear…hmm.

Finally, we know you are inundated with all of the political decisions to be made prior to November, and we HATE to burden you with even more decisions, BUT we need some advice. You guessed it! It’s Parlor Poll Time!!

Question 1: What time would you like us to open? We’d love to see you bright and early while you eat your oatmeal before you head to the office. Think you could make it in before 9am?

Question 2: What time would you like us to close? We’d hate to miss you before your night out! How’s 7pm Monday thru Wednesday, 8pm Thursday and Friday, and 7pm Saturday sound?

Let us know your thoughts. We just want to make you happy…and feel pretty. 🙂

Peace, love, primp,

A little washing never hurt anyone.

This is where the magic happens…hair magic.

Walls and construction stuff to make walls


Coming Soon…FINALLY!

Hello all!

Updates for our salon are finally able to be described as….PLENTIFUL! Kevin, the “World’s Best Framer” (self-described) has officially framed out all of Parlor’s doors and guest desk. I may be bias, but even the wood looks FABULOUS. Mr. Electric (Dave) is busy-busy installing all of the wiring for the sconces. Finally, LTD Signs has come to deliver a little greatness in the way of our “Coming Soon” signage. See picture below. Who knew that, not only is installation of signage not-that-fun, but also there is an exact science to it? It involved razor blades, alcohol, and some sort of cheese cloth. Needless to say, my respect for sign hangers (especially my new friend at LTD Signs) has skyrocketed.

I believe this makes us more than official.

That basically sums up our construction updates. I’m really happy/proud/excited to be working with such great team members. I’m one lucky girl. Thanks, all!

Can’t wait to see you soon!

Peace, love, primp,
