After working, playing and loving in Asbury Park for years, we decided it was time to open a space of our own. A collective space filled with art of all kinds, positivity and empowerment. We take pride in supporting local art, music, culture and giving back to our community.


Our space is filled with art from our neighbors Parlor Gallery, an art gallery on Cookman Avenue in Asbury Park. The pieces are for sale and rotate out seasonally. Come by and check them out! For more information visit our ART SPACE page or you can contact them at Info@ParlorGallery.com 


All of our styling and retail products are PETA APPROVED CRUELTY FREE, predominately vegan with responsibly sourced eco friendly ingredients. They have absolutely NO sulfates, parabens, dea, tea, propylene glycol or gluten (Not to mention high quality & color safe). We have chosen to partner with a product line that shares our beliefs in doing the right thing.. you can learn more about that here



We categorize and price our appointments based on time and service NOT gender. We find this to be the only logical way to do things while staying true to our "Come As You Are" mentality, and support of our local LGBTQ community and trans and non-binary clients. See more pricing info on our "SERVICES" page.


We offer "quiet appointments" for any client who prefers not to have conversation during their service due to anxiety, disability or preference. Please let us know when booking and our front desk will be sure to let your artist know. You will still receive a full consultation as needed, but your artist will know to let you relax in silence for as long as you'd like through out your service. 



Our dream for this salon was to not only change the way women see themselves, but to change the tone of the beauty industry in general. Using our platform to to openly and proudly promote intersectional feminist causes, provide a safe space, and to support organizations that do the same.

This idea quickly took on a life of its own, so with the help of our friend and client Jackie Hall, and the support of our community we also launched 

GIRLS ON TOP- a collective dedicated to promoting feminist causes through community, activism and events.


Here are some projects we are currently working on or have in the past. As well as projects created though Girls On Top. (For more on that please follow @GirrrlsOnTop on instagram) if you would like to be involved in future events! You can also add your email to our volunteer list to be the first to know about upcoming events or volunteering opportunities!

A Clothing Drive For Womens Interview and Business Clothing.

Everyone knows financial independence can be the key to an empowered existence for women. A career can open doors, can be a means of escape for abuse victims, can give a young girl the confidence she needs. Unfortunately so many women in local shelters and even our local community need to enter the work force but don't know where to start or lack the basic necessities to even apply for the job. SO we will be accepting WOMENS "OFFICE AND INTERVIEW" CLOTHING of all sizes. ALSO we are in the process of collaborating with a local organization to provide free interview training for women, we will announce more details soon, but we could use a few more volunteers!

Our friend and talented makeup artist Nicole Glendinning has started a drive to collected donated feminine hygiene products for a local women's shelter and WE ARE ACCEPTING DONATIONS AT THE SALON. Please consider bringing a an UNOPENED, NEW box of any feminine hygiene product to your next appointment. Thank you!
