Goldenrod Parlor is a collective of stylists who share a love for the craft of hair and the desire to better the hair industry. We are a salon that values creativity, community, individuality, sustainability, and most importantly, GOOD ASS HAIR. 

Our salon is unique in that all of our stylists specialize in services that they love doing. When a client visits our salon, they will see someone who enjoys and specializes in the service they are seeking. Our stylists also charge hourly for their services, rather than a la carte pricing seen in most salons. this ensures that our team is making a living wage and is also able to eliminate the need to depend on tips. we are also a gratuity free salon!

Goldenrod Parlor is a registered Green Circle Salon. It was a non-negotiable to open a salon and not do our best to be as sustainable as possible. Being “sustainable” can’t be perfect in the beauty industry, but by joining forces with Green Circle Salons and a local sustainable lifestyle store, Life Unplastic, we can decrease our waste impact by 95%.

We are also a Dresscode Project registered Safer Space salon. You won’t find gendered pricing on our menu. We believe stylists should charge based on their time spent behind the chair, not gender. All people and textures are welcome here at Goldenrod.

I’ve been a hair stylist for 15 years. For the past 9 years, I owned and operated my own salon suite, which grew very fast and life + work got extremely busy. By Feb 2020, I was working endless hours, dealing with multiple back + migraine issues, double booking every single client, and barely making ends meet. Around this time, I sought coaching from Destroy the Hairdresser and everything completely changed... March 2020 was right around the corner and the following 18 months required plenty of coaching to get through it. I’ve made life altering decisions in those months. I decided to prioritize myself, my family, and charge my worth. I decided to only work with the best clients that a stylist could really ask for, and I decided that my vessel was ready to grow. I was ready to step into a leadership role and open a salon. The sweet magical haven in Gainesville, Florida... Goldenrod Parlor.

BOOK

Howdy! My name’s Alf (or Alfie or Alfred will suffice) and I’ve been a hairstylist for the past ten years. The first four years of my career were spent in rigorous apprenticeships only focused on haircutting, and when I moved to Gainesville six years ago, started doing color as well.

My biggest focuses over the last several years, have been curls, texture, and euphoric hair for the LGBTQ community. My goal is to give hair that feels happy and powerful to our underserved communities, and desegregating/degendering the salon experience is my passion.

I love educating clients on how to care for their hair at home, to help them reach and maintain their goals, as well as giving you cuts or colors that grow out easily and beautifully. Because I’ve been cutting hair for so long, I can give you a wide range from extremely creative, to super simple no matter what you desire.

I want everyone to feel safe, and that they have a place in my chair; no matter their gender, race, age, disability, or anything else.

Hi there! I’m Rachael and I’ve been in the hair industry for four years. My start in the industry began with attending hair shows, networking, taking classes, and completing an apprenticeship. Last year I decided to enroll in cosmetology school and it was the best decision I could have made! I have found my passion in blonding, dimensional color, and effortless layering. My goal is to always create a look that is uniquely you! When I’m not in the salon, you’ll probably find me thrifting more clothes I don’t need.

I graduated from the Aveda Institute of St Petersburg in 2010, apprenticed for a boutique salon for a year, before taking my career to Downtown Chicago. While in the Windy City, I worked at one of the top salons, freelanced wedding hair and photoshoots for 8 years prior to heading back to my home state of Florida. Gainesville is where I’ve landed, and I’m thrilled to be apart of this creative and authentic community. Meeting new people inspires me to keep up with new trends, and I love collaborating WITH my client, to achieve each person’s best ‘look.’ I’m here to fix all your color mistakes, focusing on Corrective color and Highlights.

My name is Koral, born and raised in the greatest movie capital of the world: Los Angeles, California. There I have met and grown up with a great many artists who influenced my artistic abilities, my individuality and my creative outlook on life. I’m not just a stylist with 6+ years of experience—I’m also a pen & ink artist who loves creating hyper-detailed black and white fan art and portraits. I’m also currently an aspiring tattoo artist.

My goal is to bring back the golden days of Emo/Scene/Pop Punk culture and integrate it with our modern age of elevated alternative fashion… ‘cause it’s not a phase, it’s a lifestyle. I began my own trend called “Anime Hair” which I hope to take this “small town” of Gainesville by storm. Let me bring out the anime protagonist in YOU for everyone to see! I’ve been a huge supporter in self-expression and nowadays when I see more jobs becoming lenient with body modification, including hair styles, my hope is to bring more FUN and more COLOR to the world one client at a time. I’m bringing my big LA energy to this little city of Gainesville and I want to make a loud statement with my art.
