I’m a hairdresser of about 18 years and I’m the owner of Goldenrod Parlor. I’ve worked in mostly traditional commission salons until I spent a number of those years as an independent stylist in a suite running a business by myself and building a large and incredible clientele. Finally, I reached a point in my career where I knew that I wanted open a salon that isn’t like most other salons. So I did. I found and hired a bunch of other stylists who are like minded and who want to see the same change as I do in the industry. So here we are, doing things differently in our corner of the industry, making art on cool fucking people.

Stranger Things, American Horror Story ,vampires, Metal, and bad Tinder dates.

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

(he/they)

My name is Avin, and I’ve been doing hair for over a decade now. I approach hair artistry and care from a few different perspectives -

1. As a queer and trans person, I know the importance of how our hair can impact our mental health. The ways in which it can be shaped to cause dysphoria, or euphoria; insecurities, or confidence. There is no one way to be feminine or masculine, and what this means to each person (whether trans or cis) differs.

2. I also have a skincare background and love to deep dive into scalp care and how that affects the health of our hair, its ability to grow, and so on. I love being able to translate skincare into scalp care, into haircare, and over onto beard/facial hair care. It is so clear to me that most of us were not taught how to care for these things properly as we grew up, and that takes a huge toll on us now.

3. I primarily am a hair cutter, and focus on all lengths and textures. I love curls, kinks, coils, and bringing out as much texture as I can in hair that is either straight, or mistaken for straight. I am very picky about what types of color projects I like to take on.

And 4. I’m neurodivergent and used to be chronically ill - so I understand needs like an extra pillow, sensitivity to certain kinds of sound and touch - whatever it is, and will accommodate folks in whatever ways that are possible for me to do while continuing to be able to do my job properly. I have made sure the salon is stocked with fidget/stim toys, ear plugs, and a plethora of reading material to make your experience as comfortable as possible.

I am also the salon’s Community Outreach and Events Coordinator, so feel free to reach out about that via email. avin@goldenrodgnv.com

Hiiii! My name is Jordan and I’d love to see you wander into my garden of self discovery! For 12 years, I’ve honed my skills with hundreds of clients across the country, connecting with each individual soul to reveal and honor natural magnetism. Whether you’re seeking a subtle change or a bold metamorphosis, we will discuss it all in depth to be certain we have a plan that alligns with your needs, desires and lifestyle.
My hands have always had an intuitive approach and a yearning to unlock natural texture, but I owe so much of my craft’s expansion to my exploration across the country. Brookyln showed me how chic subtlety can be. Miami spiced up my artistry with loud, vibrant color play. San Fransico married my modern methods with vintage shapes. Portland connected me to nature and my color work began to reflect the ethereal dimension of flowers. I am overjoyed to bring my bag of tricks back to Gainesville, the place where my hair career began.
So bring me those locks and together we will create something that not only enhances your outer expression, but also nurtures the radiant magic within. I vow to prioritize building your trust, creating a safe and comfortable atmosphere for this to take place. Every head of hair tells a story, and every client is a cherished protagonist.

Hey Hey I’m Sarah, and I’ve been a licensed hairstylist behind the chair for 13 years. Being a Florida native I couldn’t wait to get out, so shortly after beauty school I moved to Chicago. It was there I had the opportunity to work beside some of the city’s leading hairstylist, colorist and educators. And as my knowledge for hair expanded so did my passion for Color. I take inspiration from the natural tones in hair combined with each individuals unique style, to customize a haircolor that best suits YOU. Specializing in Dimensional Highlights & Corrective Color.

3 cats I love dearly and I’m addicted to Caramel Latte’s and My Chemical Romance. I heard the song “Helena” one time in 7th grade and I’ve been chronically Emo ever since.

Hey, my name’s Maelee and I’m a curly color specialist. I love bright and bold color, and my passion is bringing vibrant hair to the curly community while maintaining hair integrity. I've been a licensed stylist since 2019 and began my natural hair journey in 2014. After learning to care for my curls I was eager to experiment with color, but was scared I would damage my natural texture. After receiving my cosmetology license I spent my first 2 years in the industry learning more about curls, and how to achieve bright colors without compromising the health of the hair.

Born and raised in Gainesville, Florida, I've always had a passion for creativity, and have truly found my outlet in creative color. I've always been inspired by alternative fashion and it has defined my style as an artist. From the age of 14 I began experimenting with my own hair and quickly fell in love with adding pops of color into my hair.
