Lock & Shade is a full service salon, collective art space and education center in Asbury Park, NJ. Utilizing the newest techniques and trends to give a custom look to each individual client. We are a team of artists dedicated to making you look and feel your best! At Lock & Shade we celebrate our clients beauty each and every day. We wish to inspire people to forget any cookie cutter image they have been fed, and embrace what they have been given. Our artists believe that beauty is not boxed in and each client should feel completely special and unique. We create art on beautiful canvases and we are truly grateful for it.
Since our opening in 2016, Lock & Shade has made our mark on Asbury Park, not just for our excellent hair, makeup and bridal services, but the welcoming, creative environment in which we do it. We bring you high end services from skilled artisans in a fun and unpretentious salon. With our “COME AS YOU ARE” mantra, we prioritize self expression and confidence through the art of hair and makeup. We believe that your look should be just as unique and special as you are, which is why every single appointment is a custom session focused on achieving YOUR idea of beauty.

We regularly raise awareness and funds for progressive causes like LGBTQ and Womans Rights, to local food drives.. as we believe deeply in the connection between our salon and the city it lives in. We also take great pride in being an environmentally friendly salon, third party certified as a 99% sustainable business.

"Lock and Shade is the salon version of Cheers! Everyone always greets you with a smile and welcomes you into an environment that feels like home. Except that this home leaves you feeling fabulous and fierce every single time you step out their doors. I love that each artist has their own style and that they collectively make everyone feel as beautiful as they deserve. Special shout out to my girl Nikki for always boosting my confidence! Lock and Shade tells you to come as you are, and it truly is the most beautiful inclusive salon environment I’ve ever experienced."
