Happy First Anniversary to “The Parlour” in Andover/Ham Lake--A Dream Come True

A year ago last summer, I was in my favorite Blaine hair salon getting my hair expertly cut and colored by my stylist and friend, Jill Jarvi. As she worked to make me look my best, she told me she was about to embark on her dream of opening her own salon and boutique. It was going open before the end of the year in the Ham Lake/Andover area. Her excitement and drive was evident as she described her dream of an upscale, full service hair salon for women and men. And by the fall of 2007, her dream had come true.
The Parlour is in a word, beautiful! Located in a brand new building just west of the Hanson/Bunker Lake intersection, it is convenient too. Luxurious fixtures and surroundings with style make one feel welcome from the moment you walk in the door. It is a northern oasis for pampering at very affordable prices! The staff is always dressed professionally and greets everyone as a special guest.

Guest comfort is important to Jill. At her previous salon, the old chairs were poorly designed and uncomfortable for clients to sit in for long periods of time while hair processed with a perm, color or foil. (I know because I had actually hurt my lower back and was in severe pain requiring several months of therapy from these old chairs.) This is no longer an issue at The Parlour! Every piece of furniture was selected with the guest in mind. The chairs in the hair washing station are adjusted via remote and glide soothingly into several comfortable positions.

Stylists were hand picked by Jill with the same care and consideration. When the Northern Escape Salon closed last spring, Jill interviewed several of the stylists and selected only a handful of the most talented that would embrace the essence of The Parlour. I have had the spoken with several of these stylists and they are very enthusiastic about their opportunity to work in such a dynamic environment.

Now after surviving the first year in a slow economy and the major construction at the corner of Hanson and Bunker Lake Blvd, The Parlour has something to celebrate! Jill, being the wonderful person that she is, has generously offered an Anniversary special of 50% of any service to a first time guest. She was telling me about this special and I offered to get the word out on her great new salon in the Ham Lake/Andover area. And yes, you can even request the owner herself and receive the deal. Just print out a copy of this blog and bring in with you. Current customers are not forgotten as they can bring in my blog and receive a special gift.
