Pepper Pastor Salon
Hidden amidst the restored buildings of New York’s South Street Seaport, the concept behind the salon is Tim Burton meets Coco Chanel, with a dash of Pepper. The latter being the namesake of hairstylist Pepper Pastor, who is a contradiction herself being the heavily tattooed sophisticate. The salon channels classic Hollywood with a dash of modern noir and leaves no detail untouched. Wrought-iron art deco gates salvaged from decommissioned elevators divide the shampoo bowls. A late 19th century sofa reupholstered in gold velvet damask sits in the foyer with cast raven claw chandelier suspended above from a polished brass chain and collar. While the custom walnut cabinets divide each station, with wallpaper upholstered interiors, custom brass hardware and cast raven claw magnifying glass sconces flanking each mirror.
