At the time of the move there were few other businesses open and operating on the 4100 block of Hamilton.

An eclectic hair salon located in downtown Cincinnati, OH. Our talented team of stylists keep up with the latest hair trends to offer our clients their ideal cut, color and style. Many of our cuts are done with a razor and finishing work is completed on dry hair. It is important to us that a client's wait time for their appointment is minimal or no wait at all. Your time is important to you as ours is to us.
"Stuffy" salon setting with dress codes is not in our vocabulary. Getting your hair done should be fun and comfortable, not intimidating.
In our studio, we value our client's opinion because we believe our clients know their own hair. We strive to exceed each individual's expectations so they leave our place feeling satisfied about their new style.
