Parlour at the Point. Santa Cruz, CA
Stripe was delighted to design a local stylist’s brand new hair salon on the East Side of Santa Cruz. The edited selection of materials is echoed both in the salon’s name: Parlour and the owner’s straightforward approach with her clients. The design strikes a true balance between utilitarian and gorgeous with no superfluous bells & whistles. All of the finishes are entirely practical to sit the purpose, from the Carrara marble counters to the bespoke designed floating station which is double sided and incorporates product and styling storage.
The palette of white, concrete and marble is punctuated with brass accents in the signage, drawer pulls, mirror frames and lighting fixtures. The only nod to femininity is the hand painted mural which intertwines with the salon’s name behind the cash wrap and is reminiscent of the owner’s predilection for tattoo artistry.
