Shop at this Wunder-ful Boutique

First came noteworthy farm-to-table restaurants, then upscale cocktail bars, and now boutique shops are making downtown Napa a destination on par with neighboring towns in the valley.

Case in point: Wunder Boutique and Salon, a dual-purpose shop that’s a retail outpost in the front and a beauty salon in back. With a large window, skylights, and clean white walls, it’s a bright and simple space that would be as comfortable in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley as it is in downtown Napa. Branch-like grapevine wall hangings and antique finds, including a vintage typewriter, are artfully placed throughout the shop and lend a cool vibe.

Owner Lisa Wunderlich opened the shop in November 2015 with a vision to be more than just a boutique. Here, she combines her hairdressing expertise with her interest in style. Her philosophy is to highlight local and American-made products in her store.

She stocks everything from Wonderland sunglasses to the softest Hello Apparel T-shirts to Penelope soy candles. There are also scarves, hats, and bags of all kinds. Notably, she sells JOYN’s fair-trade bags that are 100-percent handmade by artisans in India, down to the hand-woven raw cotton and hand-stamped designs. Otherwise, most of the merchandise is made in California, like Goorin Bros. hats out of San Francisco and Wild Ink Press cards by way of Chico.

A few lines hail from Napa, including Classy Trailer hand-stamped jewelry, Olive and Poppy cuff bracelets made from wine barrels, and tribal earrings from Sonia Lub Jewelry.

In the salon, there are four hair stylists, including Wunderlich herself, and an in-house aesthetician. Expect traditional services, including haircuts for men and women, highlights and full color, and blowouts, as well as facials and waxing. Consider it a one-stop shop that’ll require multiple visits in between trims.

Within seconds, you’re getting an unfamiliar view of Napa Valley, appreciating—perhaps for the first time—the way the valley narrows just north ofSt. Helena, the interlocking triangles of Chappellet’s winery roof, and the oxbow curve of the Napa River.
