A vet of the salon business since 1989, and the former head stylist at the Antonio Prieto Salon, Janet Rufin opened her Parlor in 2005, in the same space that once housed her former employer. Rufin renovated the salon and removed a few of the workstations, paring it down to eleven chairs and creating a more intimate feel. Hard wood floors, floor-to-ceiling mirrors, and earthy browns and oranges help add warmth to the spacious loft. Though best known for their work with color, most of the stylists are trained to both cut and shade, since Rufin believes in servicing a client from beginning to end; it's this kind of personalized, one-on-one attention from a doting staff that keeps customers both old and new happy. The salon uses and sells the full line of Goldwell and Davines hair products, and offers wonderful deep conditioning treatments like a rejuvenating scalp massage, and the Leonor Greyl Palme treatment, which combs a rich balm-like oil through hair for a brilliant outcome. An apprentice training program enables clients to get complete cuts and color by licensed cosmetologists who are supervised by a senior stylist—or the owner herself—for a fraction of the regular cost.
