Petticoat Parlour – A 1950’s Inspired Beauty Salon

Imagine time traveling back to the 1950’s, a place where diners were the place to hang out, dancing to Elvis Presley’s Jailhouse Rock playing in the background on the jukebox, a time of pin-up girls, tulle skirts and LOTS red lipstick. Luckily there is no need to time travel as there is a 1950’s inspired beauty salon called Petticoat Parlour which brings all of these nostalgic memories to the present!

Well you don’t need to imagine anymore, a place like this really does exist! A beauty salon, like you’ve never seen before! Petticoat Parlour brings you all the good elements of the 1950’s, while having all your beauty treatments done! A funky-retro style salon, which allows you to socialize with your girlfriends while being pampered? You’re pretty much guaranteed a fun day day out with the girls!

This past weekend I got to visit the ultra retro themed Petticoat Parlour in Greenpoint. It was an experience like none other. I’m quite a sucker for old school themed spots so when I heard about Petticoat Parlour I just couldn’t wait to go check it out.

I was treated to a much needed facial and manicure, which got done at the same time (might I add) by 2 super beauticians, Nadine and Nomsa. I had the Nimue 1 hour Therapeutic facial, which was absolutely amazing as the facial is customized to your suit your individual needs. As everyone’s skin is different, it’s of utmost importance that you receive the treatment your skin requires. I was particularly impressed that I was walked through every step of my facial, every question regarding the products used on my face were answered and the beauticians were very informative, they suggested future treatment plans and products that I could use to improve the look of my skin.

While having all that done, my often neglected hands were getting the pamper of a lifetime. It started off with an exfoliating hand scrub which was followed by a delightful hand massage. My nails were then filed and painted to perfection using only the best nail polishes the beauty world has to offer. I went with the Vinylux brand as it dries completely within 8 minutes and lasts quite long.When visiting Petticoat Parlour you are guaranteed that only the best products are used. Some of their top brands include Dermalogica, Guinot and Nimue for your skin, Australia’s top brand, Sun FX, for your tan and Essie, OPI and Vinylux for your mani’s & pedi’s.

So why not treat your bestie or mom to a day of fun (and pampering – let’s not forget the pampering) at the super gorgeous Petticoat Parlour! They are one of the few salons to accommodate groups – they recently had a group of ladies come in for their year-end function (how lucky!)All you need to know about Petticoat Parlour, where they can be found, how they can be contacted and pricing can be found on their website
