There is no shortage of places to get your hair cut and colored in Silver Lake, where stylist Tamara Perry and color specialist Vanessa McGrath worked in a high-end salon. So when it came time to open their business, they settled in Elysian Valley, aka Frogtown, where there are few if any beauty or nail salons. Their Perry McGrath Salon opened in the last two weeks on Riverside Drive in the former offices of Paramount Pest Control, now occupied by a Pilates studio, massage therapist and acupuncturist.
“Silver Lake and Echo Park are full of salons, we thought it would be nice to bring some love over to Frogtown,” said Perry via email. “Frogtown seemed undiscovered but centrally located.”
In addition to cutting and coloring hair for women and men, the salon owners will be open to using their ground floor space for art shows or a pop-up, Perry said.
