The chemicals used in beauty products can be scary, and toxic too! At The Hive we take the “scary” out of getting gorgeous (or handsome) by promising to use products that are plant based, non-toxic, and organic whenever possible. There’s no such thing as organic color, but we will continue to evolve our offerings as safer options become available.
Not only do we want to keep you looking fresh, we want to keep the environment looking fabulous too. We recycle all of our hair foils, waste and paper and offer incentives to make sure product packaging gets recycled too! At The Hive we believe that the beauty industry can co-exist with being environmentally friendly which is why we like to think of ourselves as “Green without the Granola”.
All haircuts include our indulgent shampoo service featuring a Destress Express steamed facial towel and relaxing scalp massage.
All colorants are free of Ammonia, reducing damage and irritation while increasing shine. All color prices will increase based on stylist chosen and compensation for additional color products or time needed. Complimentary consultations prior to the day of service are always offered.
We’ve always felt that you shouldn’t sacrifice your health to look beautiful, and now we’re making it even easier to “green” your beauty routine! Our Certified Gorgeous Organic Blowouts feature USDA Organic hair products from Intelligent Nutrients and our indulgent shampoo service featuring a Destress Express steamed facial towel and relaxing scalp massage. Now, you can treat yourself to head-turning hair without the burden to your wallet, or your good conscience!
Starting at $30!
Sleek, smooth, and hydrated with a natural bend or bone-straight ends
Loose waves with beachy body and tons of texture, you can almost smell the ocean in your locks.
Full of volume and curl, you’ll feel inches taller as you glide out the door.
Not technically a blowout, but sometimes curls need polish too!
Not only will we hydrate and style your curls to their fullest potential, we’ll also teach you how to replicate the look at home. A curls best friend.
Is it getting hot in here? Nope, it’s just your head-turning, sexy hair! Full of volume with loose curls.
Our signature, classic blowout with round brushes. Voluminous without being over the top, and always flattering.
The Hive started as a little seedling back in 2006 when Jen’s sister Becca enrolled in beauty school. Jen had already been a hairdresser for four years and the idea of owning her own salon had always been in the back of her mind. One of the first things Jen said to Becca when she passed her state boards was “So, when do you want to open a salon with me?” Fast-forward five years later and together they opened The Hive.
We had both always been “a little different”, so we decided to do “different” together. We envisioned a salon that smelled fresh and tried to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Our goal is to give great hair cuts, colors, and styles using products with as many natural, plant based ingredients, and as few chemicals as possible without compromising results. We won’t call ourselves a “green” salon because no system is absolutely perfect; you can’t remove every chemical in hair color and expect it to perform, but we found a line that had no Ammonia and safer ingredients. We also found really great hair products that were made without scary things like sulfates and parabens. We are consistently looking into finding better, local, and cleaner systems, and will evolve our offerings as they become available.
We created The Hive with some of the best attributes of our favorite salons and with the open-air vibe of old-school beauty parlors; a cheery interior, a variety of magazines for inspiration, hot coffee and teas, outgoing individuals, and amazing hair care products fill our space. It’s a salon you can feel relaxed in, and we invite you to come check us out, and see what the “buzz” is about.
