Brick and mortar businesses seem to be going the way of the dodo, and instead, unconventional structures are popping up, providing the same services with tons more flair and coziness. Take the HairStream boutique in Southampton, New York - a classy hairstyling haven nestled in a retro Airstream travel trailer. This hip establishment is turning heads - and blowdrying them, and moussing them - with its sleek, chic design tailored for the super-stylish.
Partners Ric Pipino and Gil Haziza spent a year remodeling the trailer into the shimmering destination it is today, complete with four styling stations, swiveling shampoo sinks, and an exclusive VIP section. The inner walls shine just as brightly as the outer, decked out in copper, as a hair studio can truly never have too many reflective surfaces. Clear acrylic chairs and beaded curtains connect mid-century bones with modern flair. Being parked in The Capri Hotel allows for an inviting and breezy outdoor waiting area for customers, as well.
HairStream specializes in cut, color, and style services, but they are also available for professional make-up, nails, and massage. With over 50 years of combined experience and expertise in the fashion industry, the owners and staff are clearly passionate about what they do. The next time your tresses need some TLC, wouldn’t they prefer getting a trim inside a retro-chic trailer?
