In our Smartish Neighbors series, we highlight the hardworking, creative small businesses that keep Austin smartish. This week we hang out with the brilliant beauticians at Parlor Beauty Bar.
Our fair neighborhood of East Austin is full of tough, adaptive entrepreneurs who are dedicated to spreading the smartish spirit through their innovative businesses. And don’t let Parlor Beauty Bar’s pink motif fool you – founder Charlotte Feliciano is one of the toughest around. She was inspired to start Parlor after surviving not one, but two car crashes. Most people recovering from serious injuries are just inspired to watch weird Netflix documentaries. So yeah, Charlotte sets the bar pretty high.
Parlor Beauty Bar provides a whole suite of services in one location, so you don’t have to fight through traffic going to multiple salons. That means expert blowouts, airbrush spray tanning, dermaplaning, professional makeup, and everything you could ever want done to your eyebrows (even we can tell that’s an impressive array of services). Parlor also hosts private parties for birthdays, bachelorettes and more in a friendly, fun-loving environment. So if you’re looking for a place for your special event in Austin, you owe it to yourself to check out this smartish (and woman-owned) local business.
