THE ParlOUR WAY

Our Philosophies
  • Tidy up our weaknesses
  • Respect the evolution of others
  • Look for the good in others

The Parlour believes you cannot make people good by law; we’re not interested in building a rulebook for the small percentage of people that want others to manage goodness into them. Instead we believe in free will (personal responsibility). It is the only thing that makes possible any goodness or joy worth having. Giving people the freedom to create their vision of their best self is our idea of success. The Parlour is similar to a 132 key piano; every key belongs, no wrong notes, no two keys with the same purpose. We’re at our absolute best when everyone is in tune and respectful of each other’s notes.

The great sin for us is to think we are cooler than the person in front of us. Whether it be a client, an employee or anyone we come into contact with, our definition of integrity is sticking up for others when they are not in the room. The Parlour believes in cultivating an environment where these philosophies shine.

HOW WE GOT HERE

1989
The Parlour was born under tough circumstances, a dream died and a family was struggling. The choice was either find a job or roll the dice on ourselves. I sold my fancy watch, my Harley and borrowed some money. Finally, a signed a lease on the corner of Broadway and Walnut in Boulder and the parlOUR journey began.
1996
After seven years of building up our Boulder location and learning the ropes of owning a salon, The Parlour LoDo opens up in Denver, Colorado. This salon is located in historic lower downtown Denver, right across from Union Station.
1998
Michelle Smotherman, whom had been with The Parlour since day one, decided she wanted to be closer to home and an opportunity to partner up to open The Parlour Fort Collins became a reality. It was the beginning of our new business model that allowed the team to grow into partnerships.
2004
The Parlour was looking to seek more wedding clients and the historic Stanley Hotel in beautiful Estes Park, Colorado was interviewing salons to open up in the hotel. The Parlour was chosen over several other candidates and opened their doors. This salon also provides nail, skincare and spa services, as well as providing services for 150+ weddings each year.
2005
The fifth Colorado location and second Denver location opens up right on trendy, historic Highland Square. Partner, Phil Lombardo had aspired to own his own salon since he began atThe Parlour in 1996. The Highlands neighborhood is nostalgic to Phil and it was a great area for The Parlour to grow.
2010
An ambitious year for The Parlour as we open up two new locations in Colorado with four new partners. Julie Mustoffa and Stacey Joyce open up The Parlour West Washington Park. Julie, being at The Parlour since day one, and Stacey since 1997, were long-time friends and had always loved the Wash Park neighborhood. Evelyn Thoms and Kathleen Ross had known each other many years in The Parlour Boulder and had a large clientele in the Broomfield area, so opening up in Flatirons was a perfect fit.
2014
Opened up our fourth Denver location in Capitol Hill with Brooke and Estevan, both leaders in our Design Team. Their passion for fashion, design and having a great time make them both the best of friends and business partners.
2017
The Parlour RiNo - coming soon!
