A symbol of passion

LA Mistinguette Studios is a work place for professionals that are so passionate they take risks, take chances, take leaps of faith, in their skills, in their craft, in their passion, to share it with others. Examples of passion can even be found in the furniture. Antique barber chairs were the very first purchase for LA Mistinguette in 2013. The man they were purchased from, was no doubt passionate about barber chairs. He filled his home, his backyard and garage, with barber chairs and pieces of barber chairs. One by one he brought barber chairs back to life, adding missing pieces and reupholstering them. His drive to acquire, accumulate and organize barber chair pieces, and his ability to restore these chairs, was so inspiring and impressive.

A couple beat up chairs were chosen for LA Mistinguette, and he went to work. Finding the missing pieces, making sure all the functions worked, and reupholstering to the color of choice. Aside from the super cool look of these chairs, it was their versatility that made them the best fit. Makeup applications, eyebrow shaping, haircuts, hair color, reiki, manicure/pedicure, lash extensions, even a min facial could be done, all from one chair. And being able to experience this mans passion felt like just the beginning, a spark of passion for the place those who are passionate will also call theirs. Today, not only is La Mistinguette full of talented, creative and gifted professionals but this particular barber chair is used by three different professionals as they build their business and share their passions. A versatile symbol of passion indeed.
