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.
Not only do we want to keep you looking fresh, we want to keep the environment looking fabulous too. We’re partnered with Greencircle Salons to recycle 95% of all of our hair foils, waste and paper, and send our hair clippings to clean up nasty oil spills! 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.
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.
