“The Zazous were a subculture in France after World War II. They were young people expressing their individuality by wearing big or garish clothing (similar to the zoot suit fashion in America a few years before) and dancing wildly to swing jazz and bebop. Men wore large lumber jackets, while women wore short skirts, striped stockings and heavy shoes, and often carried umbrellas.”
“We think this could describe the current Zazous also!”
A brief history:
Zazou was born in February 1992 as Zazou Hair Studio. It was a friendly 3 chair, 2 employee (Bruce Peters and partner Andrea Holly), 375 square foot hair salon. When Zazou Hair Studio closed its doors in 2008, Bruce Peters rolled out the red carpet (literally), and was joined by friends and new team members alike to celebrate the Grand Opening of Zazou Salon & Spa in February 2008. A progressive 12 chair Salon and Full Service Day Spa, Zazou has expanded into a 2200 square foot space personally designed to provide the North Shore with a downtown experience in its backyard. The culture still remains a unique, friendly, dynamic team.
Zazou has been recognized locally and nationally for its community and customer service, and our progressive talent and creative works. New product lines are continuously introduced that embrace our philosophy of environmental consciousness and superior quality service.
