In its original sense, the salon is a French invention. Emerging as an important cultural force circa the Sixteenth Century, salons were curated gatherings hosted by an inspired figure, where citizens of diverse persuasions could come together to indulge in conversation and enjoy the free exchange of ideas. By most accounts, salons were very important to the advancement of women. Here, away from the restrictions of male-dominated society, they could enjoy freedom of intellect, creativity and yes, seduction.
Of course, the modern French salon, where hairdressers work their magic with shampoos and scissors, is quite a different thing. But is it, really? There are 55,000 of them in France, and they are still quite important to women, no? And they are still gathering places, where French women go to find renewal and transformation, where a diverse set of intriguing creatures can exchange inspiration and ideas. The salon as we know it is still very social. And it is still strongly connected to the art of seduction.
