Jeff Hafler has moved his museum of hair and beauty to downtown Joshua Tree, which is just outside the entrance to Joshua Tree National Park. The collection is well over 3000 pieces now and can all be seen under one roof in the new location.

Just called Jeff to see about staying at the lodge, and he informed me that they've moved into it and are no longer renting. Bummer. The Beauty Bubble, however is still open; just be sure to call ahead.

Beauty Bubble Salon and Museum

Jeff Hafler's Beauty Bubble salon and museum now includes over 2,000 pieces of hair and beauty memorabilia. Jeff is currently working on a hair care history book that will catalog the entire collection. Construction was recently completed on The Moon Way Lodge, located next door to the museum. The lodge is a private poolside retreat rental that can accommodate up to 8 people. Book a night or weekend at the lodge and visit the Beauty Bubble right next door! Hair and tour appointments can be enjoyed during your stay.
