Those who have met our salon owner, Jamie, know that they have met somebody very special. Jamie opened the doors of The Hair Parlour in 2012 and has been making people’s hair (and days) better ever since. As somebody who has been in the industry for almost 15 years, Jamie is an expert in all things hair and business. But what about what makes her happy, what she loves, and what she does in her free time? Thankfully, we have our “Meeting Stylists” series for that!

Favorite Local Shop: We are lucky to be surrounded by amazing small businesses in The Crossroads. Village Collection, Birdies, Foxtrot, Dear Society, and Etiquette–just to name a few! Having a strong community of local business owners sure makes a walk around the neighborhood lovely. Jamie also loves the clean beauty-centered Within Apothecary for a non-toxic lipstick and Nova Made & Found for a good piece of vintage furniture.

Favorite Hair Product: La Tierra Sagrada is a friend of The Hair Parlour and Jamie loves all of the brand’s products. Her current favorites are the Jojoba Oil and Salt Spray. The all natural brand blends haircare with the founder’s deep love for spirituality and nature.

Favorite Hair Trend: Lived in, natural colors are inspiring Jamie right now! Playing on our natural beauty is key in finding your personal style. Pair that with a chic bob and you have a superrrr cute summer look.

Favorite Media: Jamie loves all things self-care, and integrates that in her day-to-day life by using the Calm meditation app and listening to Oprah’s SuperSoul podcast. She also has a whole lotta music in her, and loves singing along to her favorite musicals!

Favorite Way to Practice Self Care: After a sweat sesh at Barre3 or a long run, Jamie loves some meditation time and a long shower. Finding mental and physical peace together is so important in this busy world of ours!

Favorite Thing About the Hair Parlour: Being a part of the amazing Kansas City community truly inspired Jamie. This means meeting the people who come into the salon, building relationships with those around her, and being inspired by the kind and creative people she encounters!
