Smooth Like Butter
Back in the day guests at an upper class house party would retire to the parlour to talk politics, play games and discuss their important status.
Butter is a modern day beauty parlour that takes its cue from that luxury. It’s homey and upscale with candelabras, fine art and stately furniture. Like the parlours of olden times, Butter is a social space where blowouts ($36), manicures ($31), pedicures ($54) and waxing ($16-$56) takes place in lounge chairs or around shared tables. But, unlike the olden times, Butter isn’t just for the upper-class. Everyone’s status is considered important here. And, instead of parlour games and politics you’ll leave with shiny hair, glossy nails and maybe a little bit of celebrity gossip. —Jaelyn Molyneux
