TAXIDERMY & HAIR TREATMENTS: PARLOUR & JUKE

Friday, August 24, 2012

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??)
 
DeVaney is 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? 



I was 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 salons. 

 
P&J offers 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.

  1. Just wanted to stop by and say hi. I'm always seeing your pins on Bloggers We Love. I didn't realise you were also in Nashville till now. I always get excited when I come across another fashion blogger in the area, especially one that's a fellow LSC participant. Hope you're having a great week.
