Around the World in 14 Days

The First Ward Hair Studio / Tulsa / T. Karn Imports Pop-Up

It's time for yet another pop-up shop, and we promise you won't want to miss this one.

T. Karn Imports has set up shop in the space below the salon for the first two weeks in May. Currently based out of Telluride, CO, owner Tesha Karn has returned to her hometown to show off her incredible inventory of worldly goods for you and your home. Sourced from all over the globe, this collection is full of one-of-a-kind, handcrafted items you won't find anywhere else in Tulsa. We're thinking its the perfect place (and time) to pick up something for Mother's Day, recent graduates, or just to pretend like you're on vacation.

Living the Dream in 2016

The First Ward Hair Studio Tulsa Blog Daruma Doll January 2016

Well the holidays were a long time ago, and the weather seems to be telling us to go into hibernation. As usual, we're doing the opposite of what we should. Instead, we've been going a mile a minute and taking care of business. Last year surpassed all of our expectations, and we're doing all we can to make sure 2016 is even better. 

Here is a little thank you note to anyone you shopped at our pop-up, a potential business opportunity for you, and some tips if you decided to change your hair this year. 


Hygge Thanks You

The First Ward Hair Studio Tulsa Blog Hygge Pop-Up Shop January 2016

Before we truly dive into the new year, we want to thank anyone who visited our Hygge Pop-Up Shop.  We had a hell of a good time spending the holidays with you and connecting Tulsa with some of our favorite designers. The shop was definitely an experiment for us, and we couldn't be happier with how it turned out. More than anything, we learned just how much potential there is in Downtown Tulsa, and we can't wait to continue adding to that. 

In case you missed the shop, we've added a few of our Hygge favorites to the retail shelves of the salon. We have Grown Alchemist skincare in stock, which our skin thanks us for every day. There are also a few great home items, including bottle openers, blankets, and a felt whale with a party hat. Also, if there's anything you remember from the shop but don't see, just ask us! Chances are we can find a way to get it to you. 

Now that you've filled in the eye of your new daruma doll, we hope you remember to keep things cozy and hygge as the temperature drops. There's a reason all those Scandinavian countries are the happiest in the world. They've made a cultural pact to not let the cold get them down. It's a damn hard thing to do, but we're willing to give it a try this year (as long as Jessica continues to host soup night at her place). 

The First Ward Hair Studio Tulsa Blog Available Pop-Up Space January 2016

While we take the next couple months to develop our next great idea, our downstairs shop space will be vacant. Within that time, we are interested in leasing the space for classes, workshops, and weekend pop-ups. Possible ideas include: a bartending class, flower shop, and psychic readings. We're always down to collaborate, so please email us if you have an idea!
