ABOUT

Bringing dream of art & music together in our community.

 

The owners of RESTA hair salon on Linton Boulevard in Delray Beach have built a business oozing with creativity. When the salon opened 3 years ago, Carolina Sole and Eric Perna rented chairs to talented stylists and urged them to explore their artistic stirrings. They invited local painters and photographers to display their art on the walls. And in the evenings, they held informal jam sessions with local musicians and friends.

Since then, RESTA (an acronym for “Recreation, Style, and Art”) has become as popular with local artists as it has with salon patrons, who are also encouraged to express themselves creatively.

 “A customer came in the other day and picked up a guitar we had sitting here,” says Sole. “He got his entire haircut while strumming the guitar. That’s the kind of inspiration we like!”

So when the retail space next to RESTA became available, Sole and Perna took the opportunity to double the size of their enterprise. They opened up the wall between the two properties, remodeled both sides, and started an adjunct business called The Beat Cup—a combination coffee bar/performing space/retail display area.

“I’ve never seen a salon with so much artistic energy,” says frequent customer Maria Schardong. “It’s like getting your hair styled or your nails done in a hip art gallery with a drum set at the door, colorful stuff hanging from the ceiling, and classic movies showing on the wall.”

Perna, a Brazilian-American artist, hairstylist and musician, says The Beat Cup exists because of the once-a-month jam sessions he launched a year ago. “We invited two friends, and 30 people showed up,” he says. Today he starts the sessions by pulling four names out of a hat, and gives those musicians 20 minutes to create an original tune (no covers allowed). At the 10-minute mark, other musicians may join in.

As the name implies, The Beat Cup sells coffee, soft drinks, beer, wine and snacks to patrons of the salon. Other plans include holding “movie nights” for clients, employees, and friends of RESTA to enjoy Perna’s extensive collection of silent films.

  • Philly steak and cheese, and pulled pork empanadas were amazing, the crust so moist and flaky and the filling so juicy and flavorful.
