This ¾” thick Hairdressing Parlor is hand screen printed on the front and back. It is part of a ten-piece series of buildings called Series VII, created by Cat’s Meow founder, Faline Jones, in her seventh year of business. This series was introduced in 1989 and retired Dec 31, 1994.
Designed after a house on Beall Avenue in Wooster, Ohio, the Hairdressing Parlor represents Francis Bonnette, who operated a "Beauty Shop" in Southbridge, Massachusetts. She used hair waving methods, the new waving iron and hair dryers to help women achieve the fashionable "natural-looking undulating wave".
Look for our trademark black cat, Casper, on every Cat’s Meow. Handcrafted in our Wooster, Ohio workshop.
There are a limited number of this piece available, which is reflected in the price. With your purchase of this building, Faline will donate 10% to Amani Ya Juu, a fair-trade sewing and training program for marginalized women throughout Africa.
