Karin, Anna and Isabella opened Paloma Dolores in 2017 after ten years working together for many years.

The art on the wall changes every semester and can be purchased, if you’re fast enough. Part gallery, part hair salon, Paloma Dolores has created a unique space where customers enjoy a haircut while looking at local artists' work and sipping on a cappuccino in one of the hippest neighborhoods of Stockholm.

My Sisters Hair

“I don’t want anyone to feel like they have ‘difficult hair’”, says Deshimona Nathanael, the founder of My Sisters Hair. Nine years ago, she was struggling to find someone that truly understood her hair. She decided to take the matter into her own hands and opened My Sisters Hair in Hornstull. She wanted to create a safe space for all women with afro and curly hair types to feel pampered and catered to. Here you can get a cut, cornrows, box braids, install a weave and much more. The attentive team will make you feel right at home.
