On trendy Abbott Kinney, down a picturesque alley, there’s a small salon called ‘The Harlot‘ with a boudoir feel and top-notch hair stylists. Far from being a secret though, it’s one of L.A.’s most popular hair salons. In fact, In Style named it “Best New Hair Salon,” plus its stylists  have won numerous awards at America’s Beauty Show and Sebastian Professional’s esteemed ‘What’s Next Awards.’



Head Harlot Marylle Koken is proud of the sexy, red-light feel of her boutique salon, where fun is encouraged and clients often flirt with each other. While processing color, customers can relax outside in the cabana, while sipping on champagne.


You can get pretty much any service at Harlot, from men’s haircuts, women’s haircuts, hair coloring, color correction, highlights, hair extensions, balayage, blow dry’s, Brazilian blowouts, deep conditioning, hair styling (updo’s, events) and even make-up. And if you ‘re thinking of changing up your look, make sure to book the High Priestess of hair herself. (Hair prices here.)

Recently, Marylle (AKA: Queen Harlot) gave me a hair make-over, using the dry hair cutting technique and putting the pink streaks in my hair with a delicate balayage process. (Yes, we’re very spoiled lucky.)
